This scenario needs to be adjusted with heavier foliage / better cover for the Germans, and perhaps another Panzerschrek team. In its current form it is next to impossible for the German player unless the Russian player ignores caution altogether.

Will be very hard but not impossible for the German to win.

Don't know if this works as H2H. Germans have a tough fight to win this.

Not meant for H2H as it would be boring.

Poor design. Mismatched, tiny forces. Uninteresting tactical situation. And one of my Soviet tanks actually began the scenario in a position from which it was never able to move, because of blocking terrain (I don't intend to play this again to find out whether that particular flaw recurs every time).

Not well balanced. Only thing the Germans have that can really do anything is one panzerschreck team. If you lose them, or they're out of position, it's game over.

Absolutely not interesting and boring scenario.

this scenario can only be played as single player!!!! any other way is a waste of time
