Krutoy Log, South of Belgorod: July 5th, 1943. (Scenario Size: Division.) 7th Panzer Division commanded by General der Panzertruppen Hans Freiherr von Funck's had to cross the very marshy and wide Northern Donets River. Its primary mission was to push east, breaking through the initial Soviet positions and then take the fortified town of Krutoy Log, while assisting 19th Panzer Division in clearing Razumnoye. The very wide marsh east of the river will require infantry assaults to clear out any defending positions as vehicles can only advance in column along the few trails in the area. Once clear of the marshes, both Razumnoye and the railway embankment will have to be cleared before Krutoy Log can be approached.

This is a slog through the bunkers without much AT support for the Germans. But they do have lots of time and enough infantry to make it. The Russians don't have a whole lot of options in terms of defense and their artillery is not real strong.

It can go either way, depends on the Axis swamp crossing and losses. If the Axis can get through the swamp quickly, the Russians are in trouble. Not an easy task by any means. The Russian would do well to prioritize Axis Engineers as high value targets. The Axis armor does release late in the game to be of much use.
