The Battle of Kolin (Morning Start) - After his victory at Prague, Frederick hoped to quickly subdue the Austrians trapped in the city. However, they were more stubborn than he hoped, and a new Austrian Army led by Feldmarschall Daun was coming up in relief. Initially Frederick dispatched Bevern to observe this force. However, in mid June, Frederick himself joined Bevern with a portion of the main army. The morning of June 18, he attempted to march across the front of the Austrian position, and roll them up from the right. However, Daun had anticipated this, and had reserves ready to counter Frederick. By the end of the day, Frederick would know the taste of defeat for the first time in his career. [Note: This scenario begins early in the morning, before Frederick's flank march.]

Austrians have overwhelming numbers. Not sure how Prussians would attack to win this scenario.

Austrian army significantly larger and in a better starting position than the Prussian Army. Terrain is very favorable to the Austrians. Very difficult scenario for the Prussians.

An uphill challenge for the Prussians. Literally. They are outnumbered and have to attack uphill. That said, I do want to try this one as the Prussians sometime.
