Designer: George Kelln
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The German Blitzkrieg was still in full swing and Heinz Guderianís Second Panzer Groupís spearheads had crossed the Berezina at Bobruysk and Borisov and were now making for the Dnieper. Fortune favours the bold, and Guderian or Fast Heinz, as he was known as, wanted to cross the Dnieper. Guderianís advanced detachments discovered the Russians had fortified and were strongly holding the principal Dnieper crossings at Rogachev, Mogilev, and Orsha. However, reconnaissance also discovered soft spots at Staryy Bykhov, Shklov and Kopys. At Staryy Bykhov, the 2nd Company, Motorcycle Battalion 34 supported by light tanks under the command of Captain Rode, in a daring move forced a crossing across the wooden bridge, fought off a counter-attack by Russian tanks and in this way, covered the first bridgehead across the Dneiper.

2014-12-23(A) Paolo Cariolato vs blind sniper Russian winThe scenario is rather scripted, as the Germans try to reach and pass the bridge on the first turn in order to avoid the dreaded Russian OBA. The defender must try to interdict the more road hexes possible, unfortunately for the defender the German has enough tanks suppress any forward defender staying moving in hex, then the motorcycles come in and bye bye forward defences. To proper interdict the germans on their approch road the russian has to put so many resources up front that nothing remains for bridge defence properly and the reincorcing T26 are no good against infantry.
