German (SS)Russian
After the collapse of Soviet forces facing Army Group Center, a handful of Russian units were sent to defend the main communications routes to Moscow -- the most critical of which was the Minsk highway which ran south of Borodino. Meanwhile, the 10th Panzer Division regrouped and followed up its main thrust towards Moscow, following the SS "Das Reich" Motorized Division. On 13 October, German forward elements encountered the first Soviet defensive positions near the town of Yelnya where a small stream had to be crossed in order to keep up the pace of the advance. ---- A combined arms attack by the Germans across a stream. The Germans get two options, go for the village or go for exit CVP. The Russians cannot cover everything. Lots of options for both sides.
Attacker: German (SS) (II Battalion Panzergrenadier Regiment Germania, 2nd SS Motorized Division and Panzer Regiment 7, 10th Panzer Division, Aufklärungs Abt.)

2018-10-14(A) Vic Lauterbach vs JM German (SS) winI risked dividing the small German force to attack both flanks. The 8 ML squads failed just two MC in the first two turns and I also got good smoke and sD results. The Russian reinforcements could not stop two flank movements resulting in an exit VP win in the German MPh of GT5. With some high DRs, this one could have easily gone the other way.
2018-03-11(D) patrick palma vs John Garlic German (SS) win
2018-01-14(A) Jeff B vs Ed Donoghue Russian winI went for the westerly approach and would never do that again. The terrain was absolutely brutal what with the valley, the stream, the wooded hills, and the double crestlines. Instead I would try a central/easterly approach to keep the option open of going for the exit or the buildings. As it was I did stand a chance, but my AC who was supposed to stand guard and suppress the Russian reinforcements was forced to BU in P2 and he became scrap metal instead when they swarmed him in CC.
2015-04-03(A) Andy Beaton vs Richard Hooks Russian win9-1 leader and 3 broken squads poised to exit for the win; leader went berserk in last Russian turn and all 3 squads followed him. Finished with 13 exit points while they charged the closest Russian.
