Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German (SS)Russian
With the Soviet Army firmly established on the Oder River and threatening Berlin, Hitler was still obsessed with taking the offensive elsewhere. Hitler decided to launch an attack to create a buffer zone between the Soviet forces near the Danube River and the Nagykanizsa oil fields. Operation Fruehlingserwachen (The Awakening of Spring) began on the night of March 5th. General Tolbukhin's main force was hit hard, and the fighting was fierce. For the next several days, the Germans ground forward adding divisions as they went. German armor battered away at the Soviet right flank where, on the 14th, General Wohler threw in his last reserve formation, built out of the 6th SS Panzer Division and fielding 200 tanks and self-propelled guns, in one final desperate push toward the Danube.

2018-11-28(D) Lorenzo Marinaro vs Francesco Berucci Russian winDifficult scenario especially for the attacker with many possible ways to play it for both sides.
2014-04-27(D) Gordon Jupp vs Nick H/Jeremy S Russian winGreat game,the Russian guns were hot and finished off one flank of the German attack without loss meaning the attack just didn't get going.
2011-08-08(D) nathan wegener vs Albert W Russian winGot 5 AFV kills with the Art guns 3 on IF shots. Another kill with a SU100 and opponent bagged it - lost too many VP
2009-11-24(A) David Ramsey vs Martin Barker German (SS) winCracking scenario - real heavy metal combat with great OoBs! Germans won on the exit vc with an in-motion, 2 hexspine DF shot that rolled snakes just as he was about to get shot from behind...
