Tomarovka, 25km W of Belgorod: [Best played against Human opponent] With the coming of Spring, the German forces moved forward with a new enthusiasm. Attacks around Kharkov and Belgorod were initiated with the GrossDeutschland Division as the spearhead. A new weapon in the German armored arsenal was being introduced. It was the Mark VI "Tiger" tank, and a bitter surprise for the Russians. After taking the city of Tomarovka, the Germans encountered the inevitable Soviet counterattack. Instead of rushing into the battle and being cut to pieces by the faster and more maneuverable T-34s, the Germans prepared to meet the Russian armor on the outskirts of the city where their deadly 88mm cannons could be used to its full effect. As T-34 turrets were blown off the hulls, the Germans started a new saying: "The T-34 raises its hat whenever it meets a Tiger!"

Somewhat unkind to the Axis player; a good game if you want to see the strengths and weaknesses of Russian armor.

Germans have no chance if the players are of equal ability.

I choose to play with EA. Game was a draw with 2 turns to go.

Played with EA off. I believe this is one of those scenarios that work equally well with either of the options, requiring two totally different strategies. German player needs plenty of luck with unit release dye rolls, it seems...

Tank & Anti-Tank gun matchups. Even the strong KV's can't stand up to the firepower of the Tigers.

Seems the German is hard pressed in this one.
