15 August, 1943 "Horse and Butterfly" Petrishcheva, 35km N of Smolensk: [Version 2.0][H2H](Hypo-HISB) [EA or not][N V V]As Kursk proved a grinding yard that reduced the power of the Germans to command the field. The Soviets became empowered and began to launch attacks along the front. Scraping together reserve units Zhukov put together strange combinations to just drive deep into the German lines as he prepared the coming onslaught from his careful calculations. This is one such battle. A Soviet task force has driven deep behind German lines to set up hasty blocks to slow a German retreat. The Germans rushed units forward and tried to form "fists" that could punch through these Soviet blockades. The Soviets must hold. The Germans must breaktrough to fight another day. Russian paratroops were often thought of as "butterflies". On this field they will be trampled by German horses and armor. Or, they will hold and capture the fleeing cavalrymen?

Nice map, and OOB's. Tough I think, for the Axis to get things moving with cavalry though as they are brittle.
Lieutenant Colonel
German troops could be strengthend a little bit

Good mix of stuff to work with. Decent map and a good challenge for both sides. Many options including exit hexes.
German cavalry v.s. tough Russian infantry
