Mtsensk, 300km SSW of Moscow: [Best played as Allied] After licking its wounds for a couple of days the 4th Panzer resumed its advance on Mtsensk struggling on through periodic snow showers. The mud was now so thick that movement off the roads was difficult for wheeled vehicles. On the evening of 11th October, as the vanguard of the 4th Panzer probed cautiously into the burning suburbs of Mtsensk, the division was strung out over fifteen miles of single-track road. This was the moment for Katukov to strike again. The T-34's of the 4th Tank Brigade, moving rapidly across the earth, which was beginning to freeze again in the lowering temperature of dusk, attacked the German column with dash and violence, slicing it up into sections which they systematically reduced. The gunners of the 4th Panzer, whose morale had already suffered in their first encounter with Katukov five days earlier, once again saw their shot bouncing off the sloping armor plate of the Russian tanks.
