Starobeshevo, 27km SE of Stalino: [Best played against Human opponent] Only days after the victory at Andreyevka by their sister unit the 16th Motorized Infantry Division, General Hube's 16th Panzer Division is ordered to take Starobeshevo and force a bridgehead across the Kalmius River. Knowing they must move fast, Hube plans to deal with each position in turn. Led by the division's crack recon battalion under Sgt. Wagner in a daring feint, the rest of his available units of the 16th Panzer Division mass and attack. Meanwhile the Russian 557th Tank Battalion is rushing to bolster the defense of the 433rd Motorized Rifle Regiment and the beleaguered defenders of Mount Yareb'n-khara-aba.

Tough one for the Allies

The Soviets have had their effectiveness against armor removed by the change to Matrix. The game needs a couple Soviet ATR companies added to compensate for the loss of anti armor ability of their infantry.

Soviets need ATR platoons. Maybe two companies in the rubbled town. And, replacing the T-26c reinforcements with BT7's would help to get Soviet armor to the front more quickly, while making the German player hesitate.
Out of balance with the new Matrix Soviet infantry OOB.
