Nepkhaevo, North of Belgorod: July 6th, 1943. (Scenario Size: Battalion/Brigade. Head to Head or Either Side vs AI) While Das Reich cleared Luchki South to the north, reports of a strong Soviet armored formation at Nepkhaevo prompted II SS Panzer Korp to despatch a kampfgruppe from Totenkopf. Comprised of an Aufklarüngs (Reconnaissance) & Panzer battalion with attached self-propelled artillery and SPW mounted engineers, this was the perfect 'fire brigade' for the job. Colonel Stepan Kuzmich Nesterov's 26th Guards Tank Brigade had secured the river crossings at Nepkhaevo and ordered to move to Smorodino and interdict the German supply lines. As the Guards prepared to move out Totenkopf's kampfgruppe was sighted approaching its positions.

This is one of the better scenarios I have played so far. Both sides have options and it is a pretty good tank battle with few fortifications.

Nice little scenario. Slightly pro German, but I think there are fair Russian options too

The Soviets can fight for a minor loss, possibly a draw, but a win in HTH is extremely unlikely. All the Soviet infantry was destroyed by the end and most tanks.

Fun small scenario that makes you practice tank doctrines for both sides.

This is one of the best scenarios from Kursk with lots of opportunities for both sides.

Challenging for the Russians.
Difficult for the Germans to get the last VP hex against a competent Soviet player.

From the German perspective, it was a fun battle.
