Overview:
After losing the important city of Viipuri to the Soviets, the Finns withdrew to the next natural defense barrier, the Kivisilta Strait. A small Soviet force crossed at the narrowest part of the strait and formed a bridgehead, and Finnish GHQ ordered a counterattack to clear it. After a failed attempt by 10th Company, Infantry Regiment 61, the job was given to the badly understrength 11th Company with a promise of assault gun support. The attack kicked off without any armor, but shortly thereafter tow BT-42s arrived, providing the needed support for the assault to progress.

2018-09-05(D) Lionel Colin vs Phil Duchon Russian winDicey but fun !
2018-09-01(A) Steve Blickens vs Jake In progressTo turn 4. Lost one assault gun (atr), Russians defensive fire very effective. Had to end it with Jake judged to be nominally ahead. Entertaining action.
2018-07-14(A) Raoul Duke vs CB Russian winA very dicey scenario. A lot rides on the Finns having workable assault guns and cooperation from their sniper. I had neither. Today's lesson: Finns cannot self rally out of KIA results.
2018-06-07(D) Martí Cabré vs Sebastiano Caltabiano Russian winI split my defens north and south of the railroad. My plan was to hold a couple of turns and then fall back to the southeast hill building. The Finn infantry closed up fast but the assault guns instead of getting a good shooting position quickly freezed one of my squads... the one with the DC, which in DF threw it and blew up one vehicle. That started a fire that in two turns burned all the central woods. Meanwhile the high SAN had been devastating on the Russians, killing the 9-1 leader on the first turn and breaking a couple of squads. The north flank held well and both squads retreated to the building north of the railroad, no need to fall back more, and another squad held in melee for a couple of turns. Another squad was in the last Alamo position. Finally on Turn 5 of 6 a Finn assault on the north position was broken with high morale rolls and they conceded. It's a cool scenario to plan a fighting withdrawal with almost no space to go but the high SAN of 5 and 6 can create excessive sweeps. Also the BT-42 seem great but they are not, with a in armor that can be destroyed by MG fire.
2018-01-19(A) Steve Blickens vs Jake Russian winWent down to last turn.Game had wild swings of fortune and we enjoyed the situation. Lost both assault guns but still came very close to a win.
2017-12-17(A) B-E Karlsson vs Russian Finnish win
2017-08-14(D) Jeff B vs Magnus Rimvall Finnish winAn absolute shellacking. I played a strong upfront defense that did a good job cracking the Finnish infantry but, once the tanks came on, my men were bookended with nowhere to rout (and they broke en masse on Turn 2). By the end of the turn I had one unbroken squad left, and he was tied up in an overmatched melee. I would definitely want to be the Finns in this one.
2017-07-07(D) X von Marwitz vs Michael Koch Russian winI played the Russian in this one. Plan was to defend at the front for a turn and then to fall back before it would become impossible. A small force guarded the flank on the "other side" of the Railroad. During the first Finnish MPh I managed to break a Finnish stack of the leader and 2.5 squads. This might have decided the game very early. Instead of falling back I actually reinforced the flank to put pressure on the Schwerpunkt of the Finns using my advantage in GO units to fend off some infantry reinforcements coming in from the flank and seeking CC of which I was able to win one despatching a Finnish squad due to numerical superiority. The Finns fired into another, rolling boxcars for Fate, CR'ing and ELRing to a HS while the Russian squad broke and ELR'ed. The flanking Russians had meanwhile fallen back to the second defensive line south of the RR. With the Russians firmly lodged in the front wood, around 3 Finnish squads broken and 1.5 dead, the Finnish obliged to push forward hard into PB defensive fire, and the tanks not yet able to bring their guns effectively to bear the Finns conceded after turn 3 because it appeared highly unlikey that they would manage to break all Russian MMC in time. The scenario appeared somewhat dicey to me for several reasons: Very high SAN numbers (5 & 6), the capricious nature of the tanks paired with few leaders and few units. Some few instances can swing the game either way significantly. If this happens evenly distributed to both sides, then the scenario might play very tense and exciting. If one side benefits more than the other, the scales are likely shifted to give a strong advantage to the given side.
2016-01-20(A) Jesus Pie vs Txema Russian win
2015-12-06(D) Andrew Highley vs Jackson Keddell DrawSet this up as a quick game at a social event, but unfortunately ran out of time before finishing. Was looking like as win for Finns as the Russians lost ATR very early and were very much on the back-foot. Finnish kill-stack made mistake of getting caught on a railway embankment, and were broken by a lucky 2-flat shot, possibly giving the Russians respite for a turn or two. However BT-42s were incredibly effective - with several KIAs from the big guns (and unfortunately no malfunctions). Definitely need to brush up ahead of time on embankment rules for this scenario, as rules lookups definitely slowed this scenario down for us.
2015-07-26(A) Michael Rodgers vs Craig Walters Finnish winMy round 5 finished pretty early at Saint Louis, so I was able to have a pick-up game with Craig Walters, a local player who did not need to rush out. We picked 170 11th COMPANY COUNTERATTACK. I think I bid F0 and he bid R0, but we might have diced; not sure. He had two defence lines of entrenchments in woods, all on the Russian left of the railway. I attacked the first one with most of my troops, except the leader and two squads that moved to the Finn left of the railway. The first defence line was all 628 units. The one with an LMG put a serious hurt on my attack, but later 628 beserkers helped offset that. The BT-42 tanks moved in by the railway and positioned so one tank could attack one unit in each line. The second defence line had the ATR and came close to killing a BT-42. The tank fire and infantry fire cleared the first line and moved closer to the second line. A couple of Russian units retreated to the rear hill. The ATR unit broke, which allowed me to send one tank along the rails to threaten those rear units while my infantry caught up. It got luck, breaking one of the two units there. When the Finnish infantry caught up, they found that the other concealed unit was an SMC. I had one turn to make sure it could not rally; I was successful.
