125km W of Smolensk: On July 7th Guderian was faced with a decision. Should he continue his rapid advance and cross the Dnepr with his panzer forces only, or should he break off the advance and wait for the infantry to arrive before launching the battle. The Soviets were just starting to set up a defensive line and were weak. By waiting for the infantry to arrive he risked attacking a well organized defensive position. But, if he attacked now there could be danger to the open flanks of his panzer corps. Since it would take at least 10 days before the first infantry units would arrive Guderian choose to risk a crossing now. This is a medium sized scenario that covers the opening of the battle in the area from Orsha south to Mogilev. (12,800 sq km - 40 Turns, Explicit Supply)
