Korocha - Feb 5th, 1943. Korocha 100 km NW of Kharkov was the key defensive position on the Chernyanka to Belgorod road. If Moskalenko's 40th Army was to capture Belgorod on time then the Korocha position would have to be cleared. 100th & 305th Rifle Divisions on 40th Army's left flank were tasked to clear the town. 429th Infantry Regiment of 168th Division to hold it... Size, Small) This is a short scenario that can be played either HTH or against the AI for either side. The scenario has a very simple premise. The Germans have Korocha; the Soviets want it back...

Cannot see the way the Soviets can win this scenario decisively unless the Germans adopt a forward defense doctrine and let themselves be destroyed and even then there may not be enough time just to reduce them even if they were surrendering.

A lot of maneuvers in a seemengly slow and small game.

If the Soviets can make it to the exit hex (depending on mines, ZOC, and weather) they may have a chance. They are just outclasses by the Axis in this one.

Easily defensible for the Germans. Soviets need to make the exit objective, and the weather and time is not on their side.
