Stadolishche, 75km SE of Smolensk on the road to Roslval: By the 24th of July, the Battle of Smolensk was well into its second phase, with the Germans pressing to close gap and completely encircle the Russian Armies with their mobile Panzer forces. The 46th Panzer Corps had pushed on Yelnya to occupy the high ground for the next phase of the drive to Moscow while the 47th Panzer Corps was taking a well-needed rest. One division, the 17th Panzer was out of action for refit, and the other, the 18th Panzer was regrouping in the area of Pochinok. The infantry of the motorized Gross Deutschland Regiment held the German right flank. Meanwhile, the Infantry Corps (foot and horse bound types) were just struggling to catch up to the advancing army. This was the time the Soviets felt they should counterattack. Group Kachlov formed from the 28th Army was giving the task of striking hard into the German southern flank. History and hindsight has taught us that Russian counterattacks in 1941 were doomed to fail. For this scenario to reflect the events of this two day battle, it should be approached with an aggressive Human as the Russians Player against either the Computer Opponent or another Human Player.

Both sides attack. The Russians early and the Germans late. Recommended!

Seemed ok but may be unbalanced for towards the german side, mostly due to unit quality and time
It's not the one with your name on it; it's the one addressed "to whom it may concern" you've got to think about.

Somebody correct the scenario title as I believe that should be Kachalov in it and not what we have here.

The Soviets need to proceed with caution, but decisively, the Wehrmach is not as invincible as it appears, cavalry and tank battalions offer the chance to apply maneuver shock - a rare occurence at any stage in the Smolensk '41 theater operations.
