2018-05-11(D) X von Marwitz vs Michael Koch Russian winEarly East Front scenario that involves 18 AFV. I think that much depends on where the Russians place their HIP tanks and where the Germans enter, i.e. will there be "The Ambush" or not. If the Germans attack into the Russian Schwerpunkt (if any), then it will be probably difficult for the Germans. If the Germans run into a Russian ambush which is not equivalent with the German Schwerpunkt, then things might get interesting. If the Germans attack in force where the Russian is not, then it might get tough on the Russians. The tricky part of this scenario is that if any side is able to gain local superiority over some parts of the opposing force, it can weaken the latter. At the same time, if one splits up the force, one will not be able to defend or gain everything. Due to the scenario having only 5.5 turns, there is no real time to switch the approach. That said, due to the numerous vehicles involved, this scenario does not play quickly. In my game, the Germans hit where I was not and my Russians were temporarily down four or five tanks vs. two tank losses by the Germans. As the Russians had to redeploy, I did not see much chance to stop the Germans. But lady luck begingly seemed to help the Russians to wrest victory from the jaws of defeat. My opponent thought, the scenario was tough on the Germans - maybe because I was able to turn it.
2017-12-27(A) David Garvin vs Jeff Buser Russian winJeff had a really good set up. Anatoly really did ambush me, but this was a close match. I took out Anatoly in close combat and I actually got 2 tanks to exit. In so doing, Jeff malf'd 2 of his tanks' main guns. But not to be outdone, he covered the objective buildings with plenty of Russians and his tanks were intermingled in there to keep me out. Great match and a great opponent!
