Large scale assault with tanks and infantry against a well-prepared defense in a town

Defender has no room to maneuver, absolutely no depth to defend. Defender's infantry is placed on a forward slope without possibility to retreat or move. Insane Soviet tank density.

The designer obviously wanted to make an unwinnable scenario for the German side, which is fine. But that should not be done not by cramping insane amounts of units onto an unsuited map for defense. If the Germans would have fought that way, they would have had much higher and not much lower losses than the Soviets, even when they were defeated.
Tactically the German task with that force composition does not make any sense to me.

For ladder players: play Soviet side - total victory assured.
