Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Following the disastrous loss of Stalingrad, German High Command faced another threat in northern Russia. After Russian breakthroughs at several points on the Don River, the Germans were in danger of losing three Heeresgruppes – in total, more men then they had lost at Stalingrad. In response, on March 6, Manstein’s Panzer Armee 4, including crack formations such as SS-Panzerkorps 3 and Infanterie-Division “Grossdeutschland” launched a counteroffensive, which would later be known as the Third Battle for Kharkov.

2019-12-14(A) Oliver Ahrendt vs Russian Russian winExcellent scenario! Really thight one with the Russians beeing on the lucky side. Highly Recommended.
2019-06-29(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Russian winFun scenario. My Germans suffered terribly on the first two turns as Dan’s AT Gun took down all 3 of my MK III’s and 2 of my half tracks beforehand he MALF’d it. My Tiger was killed by Street Fighting and a T-34 took down a MK IV . At that point I thought it was time to concede, but by game end, my Grenadiers had taken 10. Victory locations and eliminated every Russian tank. Turned out to be a really fun game despite my terrible early choices. Dan would get the win in the end.
2019-03-16(A) Vic Lauterbach vs ML German winTense scenario - used the 250/1's to find the 76L in D6 and lost one, also found T-34 in F3. Main attack went around the Russian right. T-34s proved very hard to kill but eventually HEAT and the Tiger got them. T-70 got an SPW but fell to a PzIVF2. PzIIIN's never ran out of HEAT and PzIII Flamm didn't run out of fuel until GT5. LV hindrance reduced hits for both sides, but Panzers got two CH's on occupied buildings and broke the Russian defense. Lots of sniper activity but only one pin and a kill on the German 9-1. If a few more shots had hit, this one could have easily tipped the Russians way.
2017-02-26(A) Tom Kearney vs Lindsey Murillo German win
2016-08-23(D) Andreas Lundin vs Axel DrawOnly did set-up and 1.5 turn. Of note was that the Tiger put one of the T-34's out of action with it's last APCR round on turn one, and that the Flammmpanzer got immobilized on turn two. To be continued.
