The evening of June 24, Infantry-Regiment 505 was established within 12 km of Liepaja in Latvia. The following day, jointly with Kriegsmarine commandos led by Lieutenant-Commander Schenke, the 505th attempted to take the maritime fortress by surprise but the attack had failed. On the 27th, the men of the 505th got a foothold in the southern part of the fortress. The following day, a bloody street battle was engaged against the particularly combative Russian defenders.

2017-02-20(A) David Garvin vs Andrew Luden Russian winCame right down to the final move. Great match!
2017-02-03(A) Tom Abromaitis vs Matt Russman German winCame down to a last CC roll after the last Russian defender went berserk...
2016-10-01(A) Michael Rodgers vs Chad Cumminngs Russian winChad and I discussed the scenario. I wanted to play the Germans and gave him the Russian balance to do so. My attack did not go well. I should have mixed the 838 with the 467 as much as legal, and I should have put the HMG MMG combo with the best German leader because the Russians concealed in the fortified victory building.
2016-02-28(D) leo zhu vs Flying7 German winLeo Zhu command Russian against elite German units directed by Flying7. German formed several power strength and got a great start that elim all two dummies and break two RUS squads then clear the column Q soon. Russian ELR is only 2 and roll almost all big number and replaced with conscript. Broken Russian try to rout to fortified building while enclosed by German and were killed. Finally, German cost only 5 turns to secure victory in little cost. By the way, Commissar(9-0) only rally 4 times and kill two conscript! The two German FT always run well and never breakdown once.
2015-09-05(D) Martí Cabré vs ̉scar Oliver Russian winAn excellent classic scenario that we had not played before. I put a mixed defense of point units, dummies and a strong force in the fortified building in order to slowly stall the German advance. The Germans advanced perfectly, combining devastating firepower and good street crossings, using infantry smoke and not risking attacks with FFNAM/FFMO. We studied the German options during the game and ̉scar skillfully achieved each target front line on schedule, being able to reach the fortified building on Turn 4 in order to have 3 turns to clean it, still having the 2 FT and the 4 DC and all engineers alive and well. There was only one German stack that had been stuck fighting in a building against a single Russian squad that held anything thrown against it: firepower, encirclement, CC attacks, evetually killing two or three German squads and going back to the fortified building. True Soviet Heroes! Also a couple of my dummy stacks managed to draw enough fire to stall him for about a turn. On the other hand, the Germans got a fanatic unit and a hero. Neither sniper activated in the whole scenario. The Germans managed to capture about 4 Russian squads that he gave to a HS guard and launched everything else on the fortified building. That was a bloody affair with his overwhelming firepower and I choose to slowly retreat and not fire to keep my concealment. Having every location fortified, he had to pin or break my units in order to CC them. One squad turned berserk, pushing to morale 10 and resisting 2 DC attacks against them. He also sprayed the street to leave some residual fire that broke a FT wielder in a nice ASL touch. The Commissar did a fine job resurrecting about four squads and killing just one and they held until the end, resisting also 2 DC attacks. In the end a couple of squads were intact in the last Russian location for a win of an excellent game.
