Windy City Wargamers (ASL Open `96 Scenario Pack ID:WCW 7)
Designer: Scott Holst
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German (SS)Russian
As the Soviet offensive of 1944 swept through Belorussia, it soon reached the borders of Poland and the Baltic countries. On August 1, the 3rd Russian Mechanized corps of the 51st Army broke through the weakly held German defense lines between Aux and Mitau. The Russians quickly overcame the scattered German delaying units and reached the town of Tuckum, just a few kilometers away from the Gulf of Riga. There they met a counterattacking German emergency combat unit, SS Panzer Brigade Gross, consisting of two weak tank companies made up of old PzIII and IV tanks, the 103rd Heavy Tank Battalion (Tiger tanks) with panzergrenadier support plus the adhoc 1st SS Armored Recon battalion.

2018-04-10(D) nathan wegener vs James Treu Russian winI rolled a lot of 4s... Shot the tires off a Puma with an LMG. Immob the Tiger with point blank shot crossing wall (attempted underbelly and missed). 45LL ATG killed a Puma in BS hex and broke a sqd. HMG zapped leader and sqd in BS hex. Had one squad hold off most of the German OOB for a turn and a half by refusing to break...

2014-11-08(A) Lee Bray vs Simon Staniforth German (SS) winMy Germans didn't start brilliantly with the 280mm OBA drifting and setting fire to the central woods on either side of the road into the village. Then my 9-1 broke to an unspotted LOS on the first MPh. However, that threat was quickly dealt with and the German attack got back on track. Initially it was aimed at the walled arae on the right flank, but an unsupported T34 in the middle attracted the Tiger which eventually killed it and the assault shifted to the centre despite the rapidly spreading fire. The Russian armour was dealt with by a mixture of tiger, infantry CC and a PF CH through the middle of the game as the infantry inched forward capturing three buildings by the penumtimate turn. Both pumas died and the end game required some luck in the form of a berzerk SS squad and the Russian HMG malfing quickly and then Xing out. Use of the German armour to VBM freeze some key locations enabled the infantry to close for the victory. Fantastic scenario that should be on everyone's must play list.
