12 - 3 - 10
Vorohnezh Front on the south face of the Kursk Bulge, July 10th 1943: After five days of fighting, the hard-pressed the Soviet 1st Tank Army was re-organizing the defense line. Although the weakened force held the line, it was backed by a number of fresh rifle divisions. The Germans detected a weakness at the junction of the 6th Tank and 3rd Mechanized Corps and to exploit this decided on a "dual missions". The 11th Panzer Div would continue to drive northward for Oboyan, while the 3rd Panzer Div and Grossdeutschland were to turn west and destroy the Soviet force along its flank. The question was; "Did they have enough force to carry out both missions at the same time in their weakened state." [Size, small] NOTE - same as 0710_02 with easier to reach objectives and victory levels.
