Axis forces composed of elite SS Morale A troops with Panthers and Tigers plus regular Morale B units versus a majority of Russian Morale D infantry makes for an unbalanced and dreadful play experience for both players. My Russian opponent and I agreed to end our game with a Draw result. I will not be playing this scenario again.

Overall, I'd say a German victory is likely if the German player knows what he's doing.

In a future update, dispersion of objectives could help make the battle more fluid, as the fighting tends be funnelled into the area east of Korosten currently.
