Gertova, S of Leningrad: [Best played against Human opponent] Throughout the winter of '42-43, the Soviets launched repeated attacks to relieve the siege of Leningrad. The hard-pressed Germans rebuffed one attack after another, but in so doing, their lines became progressively thinner. Finally the Germans were forced to develop a tripwire defense of light local forces, backed by mobile units, which could be quickly dispatched to a threatened sector. One such "Fire Brigade" was the 1st Company, 502nd Tiger Battalion, commanded by ace tanker Captain Hans Bolter. Near Gertova, Bolter's Tigers were called upon to halt a major Russian armored incursion by a battalion of the 122nd Tank Brigade. This scenario is our version of Squad Leader's "The Paw of the Tiger."

i think this is a tough match for the germans. as the ivan player - you must learn to use your armour in hunting packs.

Needs some balance work done. Russians need some tank riders and mortars in their OOB.

seemed a tough slog for the Russians...Tigers are pretty tough to take on with t-34s

but the reds need a little more inf. and art.
I would have sold my 76 mm anti-tank cannon for a mortar in this scenario
