Isn't that a lot of clear (pink) terrain right in front of Lenigrad leading up to the city hex? I'm not sure that in real life that terrain is clear, or in any way tank-friendly. Making it clear for game purposes is going to make Leningrad really hard to hold on to against a frontal assault.
The pink hexes seem to be city hexes, so I'm guessing you mean the white-yellowish hexes. Yes, those might make it easier to get to the city, but note that the layout of the rivers in the area is also quite different from the one in WitE, so you'll have an extra river to hide behind for part of the defending force. It could be that rough hexes are missing, however, as there are only 4 types of non-city/urban land hexes on that WiE pre-alpha map, and 5 in WitE.
