Should be winnable for the Soviets, if some decisions go their way, especially taking out key parts of the German defense.

If the Allies loose their tanks this is a turkey shoot for the Axis. If the Axis is reckless with their AT assets I guess the Allies could win but hard slog for sure.

I thought it was a very hard slog for the Soviets - possibly doable but would need quite a bit of luck and elimination of the Axis AT capabilities. The Axis optics advantage makes this a tall order. In our game, only one of my tanks ever actually saw the thing that took it out. It is impossible to get the Russian armor to area fire on the enemy defenders (unless they’re very close when the flamethrowers kick in), they just keep wasting their ammo on the concrete bunker(s) - this is really frustrating. I think the Soviets need a lot more smoke rounds than are provided to have a realistic chance. However, if they do manage to break through in force, they would probably clean up. Bloody good job to those players who won as Soviets.

Note: rating is for H2H play only. Might be perfectly fine as human Soviet vs. German AI.
