Last Played:
2018-07-04(D) Paolo Cariolato vs Federico Corso Russian winThe Russian has a static defence to manage, all the fun is in the preparation of the defence line. I choose a reverse slope defence and Germans were not able to overcame it.
2018-04-04(D) Dan Best vs Dave Mareske German win
2018-04-02(D) Stephen dedier vs Mason, Pierce Russian winThis is a tough scenario on both sides. Russians are facing lots of German firepower with the HMG's, mortars, Stuka's and initial smoke. Germans have to cross a lot of open ground. Germans took a tool on Russian leaders but Russians managed to leave a trail of broken units in the open ground.
2017-04-01(A) Tom Kearney vs Alan Saltzman German winThe Germans managed to prevail after overcoming early misfortune.
2016-08-30(A) Bill Brodie vs Steven Bond German winGood ROF with smoke making mortars allowed me to get close, then swept the Russians off the crest with overwhelming firepower (and negative modifier leaders). Still, a close game!
