Syrtsevo, South of Oboyan: July 9th, 1943. (Scenario Size: Regiment. German Human vs Soviet AI or Head to Head) Major Gustav Peschke's 394th Panzer Grenadier Regiment had thankfully not been heavily embroiled in the fighting at Lukhanino. With the Division attempting to cross the Pena River again it fell on Peschke's men to clear all resistance out of Syrtsevo then advance to the west and establish a bridgehead on the heights overlooking the river. Against fanatical Soviet resistance this was easier said than done.

The entertainment value of the scenario depends on which side you are playing.

It's probably more fun from the German side as the Russian has little choice but to sit and defend. The Russian trades bodies for time.
