Prokhorovka: July 12th, 1943. (Scenario Size: Army. Head to Head ot Team Play, Human vs Either AI) Lieutenant-General of Tank Troops Pavel Alekseevich Rotmistrov had spent the past four months preparing for this moment. The 5th Guards Tank Army was a new formation that he had built based upon his experience of the last two years of war. The three primary formations; 18th & 29th Tank Corp as well as 5th Guards Mechanised Corp were new units that were going into battle for the first time. That they were even present at Prokhorovka was an indication of the success of the German's to date. 5th Guards Tank Army had been reserved for the coming Soviet counter offensive but the mauling of Voronezh Front had required its early commitment. The initial Soviet plan was to clear the Psel River valley, trapping Totenkopf on the northern bank of the Psel River. It was hoped that 5th Tank Army could continue to advance all the way to the Belgorod/Oboyan highway and meet the reinforced 1st Tank Army that was attacking XXXXVIII Panzer Korp from the west. Little did the participants know that this was going to be a day steeped in history and blood.
