Belgorod - Feb 7th to Feb 8th, 1943. 40th Army's assault from the north was targeted to compromise the German line along the Severnyy Donets. Kicking off a few days later than 3rd Tank & 69th Army, progress was rapid against the weak German 168th Infantry Division. Gross Deutschland was subsequently called to provide some stiffening for 168th but it was too little to late against the significant forces of 40th Army. By the evening of February 7th, 40th Army's first echelon was ready to take Belgorod by direct assault. (Size, Small) This short scenario can be played in either position vs. the AI or HTH. The Soviets are tasked with capturing Belgorod quickly. The Severnyy Donets actually bisects the battlefield and limits how many Rifle Divisions can enter Belgorod. For the German player this is an exercise in delay while not losing the delayers...

John was skillfully rotating the Wehrmacht battalions in and out of contested locations once that fatigue levels were getting too high. Soviets did not enjoy similar opportunities.
