The major German attack on the Tractor Works of October 4th had been stopped in its tracks by the 37th Guards; the 6th was quiet before they launched another thrust with two infantry divisions and masses of tanks. Zholudev's Guardsmen were pressed slowly back, but not without extracting a heavy toll on the attackers. A lull settled over the area after a fantastic success was scored by a Russian Katyusha rocket salvo, which wiped out an entire German battalion west of the railway bridge over the Mechetka. As both sides re-grouped, Yeremenko stepped in and ordered a counter-attack against the western outskirts of the Tractor Works, which was launched by the 37th Guards and one regiment of Gorishny's division on the 12th.
