(From The Cellar Pack #8 ID:FT223)
Designer: Xavier Vitry
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
RussianGerman (SS)
On the morning of April 19th, 4 King Tiger tanks attacked and destroyed 30 T-34 in three attack waves....During the battle for the Seelow Heights with Berlin as the final objective, the Russians had placed their heaviest armor forward to conduct the expected breakthrough with the 12th Guards Tank Corps, as per their doctrine. Their lead elements, advancing without any proper reconnaissance and infantry support, drove right into several Königstigers of the SS Pz. Abt. 503, that recently arrived from Nordland’s SS Pz. Abt. 11 Hermann von Salza. Forming up outside Bollersdorff were more than one hundred T-34/85 ready to roll through the gap the IS-2 would have opened up in the German lines.

Last Played:
2018-09-03(A) Michael Rodgers vs Magnus Rimvall German (SS) winI tried to squeeze the IS2 tanks by the German infantry on the Russian right. Lost two of them. In turn 3, my last IS2 was hemmed in by three Tigers. It hit one but did not kill. After it died, I conceded since there was not way my remaining five T34 could get by four Tigers.
2018-08-10(D) Andy Goldin vs Adam Lunney German (SS) winNapoleon Bonaparte once said something about wanting Field Marshalls who were "lucky rather than good", and I was certainly lucky. Adam attacked aggressively so that by the end of the Russian turn 3 he had seven tanks in a position to exit the board the next turn and win the game. I had made a bad call by splitting up my reinforcing tanks and it was looking pretty grim from my side. That's when my -1 and -2 armor leaders earned their paychecks by scoring hits with fairly low odds shots and then hitting again with IF or rate shots. Their effects were so dramatic that by the end of Russian turn 4 Adam was down four tanks but still enough to potentially win. Swarm tactics with the T34-85s resulted in a loss of a King Tiger, but with the arrival of my last tank, I was in a pretty good position. Adam exited a tank, malf'd another MA and lost two more. His last heavy tank took an 88 to the side as it maneuvered for the victory hex, thereby granting me a win -- but by a much closer margin than the statistics might indicate. Due to the desperate nature of the situation, I regularly intensive fired and malfed two guns, while Adam rolled an unlucky boxcars on an Advancing Fire "to hit". Based on our playing, I believe the German player should position a tank on the Level 2 hill (I3) and use the reinforcements to fill in on the south side of the map. The Russian player should probably kamikaze the T34s with mounted infantry to force the German to fight both tanks and infantry at close quarters simultaneously. It will take some good positioning by the German so his infantry get a good shot at the attackers. I think the Russian has to be both lucky and good to pull off a win in this one.
