SS Panzergrenadier Division 1 launched its initial Operation Citadel attack up the main road toward Bykovka. The attack ran directly into prepared positions of the 151st Guards Rifle Regiment. Elements began to penetrate the first positions and race toward Bykovka. The 28th Antitank Artillery Brigade had established strong points throughout and north of the infantry positions along the main road. The guns cracked along with the piercing sounds of antitank rifles and machineguns.

2019-03-08(D) Martí Cabré vs Francisco Belmonte German (SS) winGermans advanced with a lot of agression, losing some tanks to AT fire but taking the main Russian positions with the infantry. Most of Russian units surrendered for failure to rout and once the main trenches were clear the Germans could exit the map, even though they lost another tank to a lucky ATR shot.
2018-04-18(D) Dan Best vs Dave Mareske German (SS) win
2017-05-13(A) Tom Kearney vs Al Saltzman Russian winCrucible of Steel linked.
2012-05-25(D) Paolo Cariolato vs arlecchino79 German (SS) winbeware, set up in the rear. It's the only way russion hope for victory. I misread the VC and thought that only exit CVP counted for victory. :-)
2012-02-24(D) Bob Callen vs Randy Rossi German (SS) winA little unlucky, one gun destroyed with a critical hit, also lost another when the crew broke on a bounding fire shot. But also had the guns setup,too far forward. Could not manage to get a DI with an ATR, in the end Randy's Germans basically wiped me out and exited without opposition. I would play this again, as I felt I could have set up better.
