Operation Gallop (South Eastern sector) - Feb 2nd to Feb 11th, 1943. The initial operations of 1st Guards Army called for the German lines to be breached at Slavyansk. Popov's Mobile Group was then to move into the breakthrough and push to the south. Historically the German's stymied the Russians at Slavyansk beginning 9 days of heavy fighting with disastrous consequences for the Soviets. 4th Guards Tank Corp swung to the west and captured Kramatorsk, but could go no further due to a lack of tanks. Slavyansk ultimately became the right flank of Manstein's counterattack. (Size, Large) This is a good scenario for both HTH and play for either side against the AI. Both sides have to capture Slavyansk and that will be a focal point. If forced to the west the Soviet advance will be significantly slower due to the transport net. The German player will find that any reinforcements received will have to be fed into the line as they arrive and used to protect the flanks as the Soviets try to round them.

I am not sure how tough this is, I think the Russian numbers make it hard to do well and my opponent tried route 1 I would have tried something different

A premature end due to the opponent's lack of response.

Very entertaining as the defender.
