As Operation Typhoon began on September 30, the Panzers seemed to have everything their way once more. Yeremenko flung depleted tank brigades in isolated counter-attacks against Guderian's Panzertruppe 2 in an effort to disrupt the attack. Reinforcements, included Lelyushenko's 1st Guards Rifle Corps and its 4th Tank Brigade. The formation was well-equipped with a high proportion of T-34s among its 64 tanks and seven KV models further bolstered the hitting power of the unit.
