I should say straight away this didn’t work out very well for the Soviets. I tried a few options for the Soviet attacks but they were very fragmented and all crossing open ground against dug-in Germans. There was a lot of artillery which was fine at the beginning when the Soviets were bombarding the German positions, but very messy when the German FAOs were able to bring their artillery to bear on the Russians in the open.
So, with that in mind, I’ll keep this fairly short.
It’s early in 1942 and the Soviets are trying a counter-offensive on the Crimean coastline
This scenario features an assortment of Soviet forces trying to combine arms in an attack against a mixed German Battlegroup defending a coastal position.
The initial layout.
The table is just 4ft square including the coastal area.
The Soviets are attacking from the east (this end), and the south (the coast) and … oh yes … and they have a paratroop drop.
Victory Points are awarded for each town sector or airfield installation held – five in total. So really the Russians have to take the town to stand any chance of winning.
