Designer: Chas Smith
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German (SS)Russian
SS Panzergrenadier Division 1 was ordered to attack to Prokhorovka on 10 July. The Russians reinforced this area with elements of the 9th Guards Airborne Division, which defended the place of honor along the main road to Prokhorovka. The Germans had to fight their way through Hill 252, and after heavy fighting succeeded. The Panzergruppe commanded by Sturmbannfuehrer Peiper attacked Oktiabrskii from the western slope of Hill 252. A short but intense artillery barrage hammered Oktiabrskii, followed by waves of Stuka dive bombers. As the ground shuddered from the preparatory fire, the Germans advanced.
