Krasnyy Liman or Bust - Jan 30th to Feb 1st, 1943. As South Western Front prepared to launch Operation Gallop it was necessary to clear the forests north of the Severnyy Donets. This would require pushing 19th Panzer Division away from Krasnyy Liman and hopefully form a bridgehead over the Severnyy Donets, ready to push onto Slavyansk. The Soviet 4th Guards Rifle Corp is tasked with this mission and will be supported by 4th Guards Tank Corp. (Size, Medium) This scenario is recommended for HTH or Soviet player vs. the AI. The Soviet player has to focus on crossing the Zherebets River quickly and in force. The Germans have terrain and mobility on their side, but have to time when to abandon the river line.

Weather/ground conditions in the game severely limit the Russians. Combine that with the Russian movement rates makes it hard for thr Russ to keep up with the AXIS withdrawal.
Ended a bit prematurely perhaps.

The scenario is a bit tough for the Russians but a fun play.

The Soviets just have a tough mission. They will eventually prevail, but how much time and cost is the key. Enjoyable scenario. Lots of action at the crossings.

Changed my rating to well-balanced in the mirror. I concentrated my attack on Krasnyy, pretty much ignoring the south and spent most of the game plodding through mud toward that objective.This resulted in 3000 less Russian casualties and a minor victory. Still a tough task for the Russians

Balanced game if the Germans make no mistakes.
