|A Soviet recon shot of the German positions|
|The Soviet view from the ground|
|Soviet 1st wave|
|German first blood|
|The white cotton wool are the pinned Marders|
In the German turn proper their timed barrage landed directly on my line destroying the previously pinned infantry and pinning a T34 and dismounting its infantry. The centre PaK then pinned another T34 and pinned its dismounted tank riders.
|Soviet 2nd wave|
|Soviet infantry running for cover and just not making it|
|The Luftwaffe has arrived...|
|... and pulled up to come round again|
|More smoke on the Soviet side than the Germans'|
|The farm lousy with German infantry|
|Soviet 3rd wave. White smoke is pinned and black destroyed|
|Su122's move up in the centre|
|More black smoke than white now|
The Soviet light tank attack on their left advanced with the T34's providing covering fire. The T34s destroyed a Marder but couldn't stop the light tanks triggering an ambush by the left wing German Marder destroying a tank. In the centre the 2 light tanks and the Su122s also continued their advance but all but one failed to pin or destroy any of their opposition. The unlucky German to be pinned was the retreating Marder in the centre.
The last T34 from the first wave charged the Germans' left wing PaK 40, and fired a HE round at point blank range and didn't hurt a fly. I used my final action to put the AA truck on ambush fire.
|The T34 charges the PaK40|
|Stay on target|
|Almost there.... and miss!|
|Boom goes the T34.|
|Definitely more black smoke than white|
|Panzer IVs on the right sit grumpily with their burning black smoke and white pinned.|
|The KV2s are almost ready to move in to action covered by a T70 and 2 T34's. Shame they have 13 AP shots and 14 HE shots between them.|
