Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Operation Citadel had begun, but instead of the desired lightning breakthrough, fighting had taken on the characteristics of World War I trench warfare. In four days of grueling combat, the XLI Panzer Corps had managed to penetrate the defenses of the Soviet 13th Army to only a depth of five miles. The German corps, now being slowly forced onto the defensive by increasing enemy pressure, needed to secure a strong position on which to anchor its left flank and to free the mobile elements. Such a spot was the commanding height of Hill 253.5 near the village of Ponyri. On 9 July, the Germans stormed and captured Hill 239.8 and, to exploit this success, an assault on 253.5 was ordered.

Last Played:
2013-10-06(D) Andy Beaton vs Eoin Corrigan Russian winI had good luck Elefant hunting early in the game - took one in the flank with a CH, killed one with OBA, immobilized one in a minefield and let 2 malf their MAs. With the Elefant's largely neutralized, the Germans were stuck.
2010-10-30(A) Fred Ingram vs Edward Fritz Russian winI think I misplayed it by being too aggressive with the infantry and too timid with the Elefants (kept them in motion the whole time). Field phone died turn 2 so no artillery. A sniper killed my 10-2 and stack on tirn 3
