Kirovograd, 100 km south of the Korsun Salient, (two weeks before the battle that formed the Korsun Pocket): Five days after the massive Soviet infantry attacks on Kirovograd, the Germans, cleverly using what reserves they had, managed to slow the advance. But, after some re-organization and despite their losses, the Russian juggernaut moved forward again. The Russians were rich in manpower, and reinforcements were rushed forward and fed into the depleted rifle divisions. The Germans were handicapped, as the whole Southern Front was under pressure, and the 8th Army was unable to prevent some local penetrations. They demonstrated extraordinary flexibility, with the use of different defense tactics, basically letting the Russians through the line, then isolating them. But their reserve strength was being eaten up. Desperately the German High Command scoured for units to stem the "Red Tide". [Size large] Designer note: The Germans are outnumbered in this scenario, so it may be best played as an Human Axis Defender against the Russian AI.
