Moscow: [Hypothetical, best played as Axis or against Human opponent] The German generals had won a decisive battle, not on the field, but with Hitler. In August, the Fuehrer planned to divert a large portion of Army Group Center's panzers south to close a huge encirclement at Kiev. The High Command, after great effort, was able to convince Hitler that Moscow should instead remain the primary objective, and that its capture would result in the total collapse of the Soviet government and infrastructure. In the following weeks, Panzer Group Gudierian made great gains, and by first snow was at the SW outskirts of Moscow. Preoccupied with this front, the Soviet high command was surprised by 3rd Panzer Group as it skirted Moscow to the north with VI Panzer Korps driving southeast, severing the city's lines of supply and reinforcement. The time had come for the final attack. This hypothetical scenario is the first of two depicting 3rd Panzer Group's assault on Moscow. The Germans are flush with victory. The Russians are beaten, nearly out of supply, and desperate.

The Allied player is completely out gunned and out manned in this scenario. We never finished this scenario because it was basically over by turn 23 of 40.The Axis are too strong and the Allied tanks are "fixed" for too long to make a difference in this battle.
Good Hunting,
