From: Cologne, Germany
The three areas in particular I would like to see is on the south front of Kursk at.....
You mean the southern pincer (<- attempt) of Operation Zitadelle. That's an interesting battleground for this engine, indeed, especially since the southern units managed to gain quite some ground, as the (massive) soviet air (to ground) attacks were widely unsuccessful, unlike the German Luftwaffe, which kept coordinating with their ground forces. This level of air support was missing in the North, and, in turn, the number of Russian air sorties in the North was astounding (they expected the bulk of the German armor to come from the North.
In the South, the German's massed artillery missions and experience of the line units were also notable contributing factors. I'd like to see this covered, too, but the engine needs to be tuned to handle tank warfare more accurately, imho.
Also the areas around Vitebsk, Orsha, Mogelev, Smolensk could be good maps for scnearios.
The Russian landings at Kerch/Theodosia (Crimea campaign -> Sevastopol) would also be interesting. The initial setup was like 6 Russian divisions (plus the Marines at Theodosia) which were met by 1 German division and a couple of smaller units (Rumanians?), that were tasked with securing the coast lines, initially, before German tank units were able to intervene.
