SEE Misc file below for scenario and VASL board. . .After more than two years of skirmishing,the battlefield in the arctic circle was about to heat up. The Soviet plan was to attack swiftly, making local encirclements to destroy the German XIX Corps. The main escape route ran through the city of Petsamo. To block the XIX Corpís line of escape along the Tarnet Road, Admiral Golovko decided on a landing at the mouth of Petsamo Bay, at Liinakhamari. A diversionary attack was scheduled to silence a battery of guns on the far side of the bay, and long range artillery support from the Srednii Peninsula was arranged. Lacking enough specialized infantry, other navy personnel filled out the ranks of the assaulting troops.
Attacker: Russian (12th and 63rd Naval Infantry Brigades)
Defender: German (Naval Garrison, 19th Mountain Corps)
