This is the historical version of the battle of Prokhorovka, based on data provided by Christopher Lawrence's monumental work "Kursk: The Battle of Prokhorovka". This book is now considered to be the definitive source on the battle of Prokhorovka. This book has not only stripped away the last of old myths frequently published as facts about the battle, but also has put to rest those assumptions and more recent incorrect conclusions that have subconsiously influenced the interpetations of events and their sequence by various historians over the past fifty years. It has also provided the most definitive order of battles for both sides of the battle to date.

Note: This scenario is designed for history, not tournaments.

The victory conditions and unit strength levels are major factor in making this a poorly designed scenario.
There seems to be no understanding of what half strength (or less) units will have on morale and fire.
