"Hopes..." - On 6 November the Soviet counter-strike began in front of Ordzhonikidze. A reinforced brigade each, supported by numerous tanks, broke out of the narrow area from the north and south, behind the 13th Panzer Division, which was standing in front of Ordzhonikidze. The dark November day prefaced the destruction of the 13th Panzer Division. The Russians broke through from the north and the south between them and the elements of the 23rd Panzer Division, which were fighting near Rassvet. At the same time a second attack occurred out of the Mairamadag Valley to the north, which rushed back the forces of the 23rd Panzer Division and the 2nd Rumanian Mountain Division toward the Dzuarikau bridgehead. On 7 November the crisis worsened even more. Enemy forces penetrated into the weakly occupied Ardon; they were thrown back at great effort. The Darg Kokh - Ardon sector was secured half-way to Fiagdon by a hastily thrown together battle group under Oberst Kampfhenkel (Arko 3). Battle Group Illig (10 tanks from the 201st Panzer Regiment and two Rumanian Battalions) attacked out of the Dzuarikau area to the east in an attempt to establish contact with the southern flank of the 13th Panzer Division.
