Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
While pushing into the industrial area of the city, advancing elements of the 389th Infantry Division isolated a contingent of the 308th Rifle Division in the crucial Dzerhezinsky Tractor Works. The German command decided to crush this island of resistance and to help, brought up a crack team of assault engineers. However, the Russians had noted a critical weakness in the ring around the Tractor Works and had decided to launch a major counterattack to relieve their garrison there.

2019-10-21(D) David Garvin vs Nick Faryna Russian win
2019-02-03(D) O Ramaille vs Russian winThe German engineers from Greup were not as effective as expected. It was Tienham with his men that first entered the factory and would held the southern portion during a long time. The Stahler group tried to resist the Russian counter-attck from the 295th Rifle Division, but leaks in the defense quickly began to appear. In the factory, the Germans resisted a very long time against overwhelming odds but in the last turn they were forced to rout away. A complete Russian victory despite heavy losses.

2012-09-10(A) Richard Carter vs Eric Russian winI have not done a lot of griping about the sniper, but his sniper killed a 9-2, a 10-3, and an 8-1 in this one. I was really crippled by it. I got overrun more or less and was unable to get more than one hex in the factory
