The rough terrain is finally cleared of Soviet Tanks after several rounds of attrition based combat. The 76 mm cracks a IVE Tank. I find out that Hedgerows block visibility both directions…doah. This really changes the scenario. A LOT!
Turn 8 is spent moving, by both sides. At this point the kills are reducing the command effectiveness of the seasoned and green Soviet forces. The Green ATG company have just one command between 4 units. The 1st Tank Company is down from 5 and 2nd Company is beginning to have issues also.
The 45mm ATG of the Soviet army are Green units, shoved into to place and not yet fully trained. The high speed approach of the Panzer 38’s shakes the men.
