North of Moscow - Dec 6th to Dec 10th, 1941. Gen. Kuznetsov's 1st Shock Army was tasked with breaking out of the bridgeheads held over the Moskva/Volga Canal. The army was to pin and destroy in place the German forces from XXXXI Korps (mot) and then push onto Solnechnogorsk in tandem with 20th & 30th Army attacking on 1st Shock Army's flanks. (Size, Small) This is a compact scenario that features a range of units. The Soviet Infantry Brigades are more powerful than first appears with a good range of supporting arms. 1st Shock Army also has both significant ski and Siberian forces allowing improved mobility in the heavily forested terrain. The mortars in particular are effective. The ski troop's very high assault values make them valuable units. The German player has more armor than the Soviet, but will find motorized/mechanized units restricted in mobility. The heavily forested terrain really works against the Axis forces.

Soviet artillery is deadly and the German forces are very thinly spread but the weather and terrain help the defenders so it is a tight tense affair

A bit of a slog but very finely balanced. Chances for attack and counterattack.
