Turn 13 is really intense, so I will try to take the action in sequence of each tank company. It's taken me awhile to determine which screen shots to show representative of the action and to replay the turns to get the shots I wanted. Hopefully the results will justify the delay in reporting.

Good Hunting.

1st Tank Companies orders are to engage and hold with those already firing at German assault guns and for the remainder to rush forward and close the range.

Good Hunting.

1st Tank Company commander begins to move out from the woods. The view in front of him is not comforting.

Good Hunting.

The lead tank charges forward.

The red lines are Soviet targeting lines.
The blue lines are Soviet movement lines.
The yellow lines are German targeting lines.

This is a tank melee!

This is the only way we can possibly beat the German hedgehog. Even so, there are T-34's burning in the sun. As the smoke rises from our fallen comrades, the tanks jump forward in answer to their drivers and commanders wishes. No matter what happens the bad feeling just won't leave the pits of our stomachs...

Good Hunting.

But wait, what is Nickolai doing? Why is he just sitting there?

The big assault gun fires again!

But what now? The German just sits there.

He has taken hail fire and has been hit 6 times himself. The vehicle has been hit from all angles. Still nothing has penetrated!

The German crew also sits in their vehicle as the battle swirls around and tries to fire one last time to destroy Nickolai and his crew.

WE MUST GET CLOSER!

Good Hunting.

1st Tank Company continues to defy death. How long can 1st Tank Company occupy two of the monstrous assault guns at such close range.

Speed is our best defense.

But the tank slams to a stop and targets the rear of one of the German vehicles and fires!

Good Hunting.

Here are the charge lane orders. The blue lines show where our T-34's are to converge on the German hedgehog position.

Good Hunting.

I am digging the new icons. They show buttoned-up condition as well as AFV and infantry, etc.?

Icons come in two flavors included in the game. Basic stars and crosses.

They do show the leader, with a round icon, a replacement leader with a diamond icon, a basic part of the unit is a rectangular icon.

Good Hunting.

They show infantry, armor and guns. They show when a vehicle is buttoned or not. The star shows who the leader is in addition to the shape of the icon.

Death rides the steppes in the 1st Tank Corps. The German's rip the formation with fire.

Only one T-34 has survived the initial part of the charge on the western part of the formation.

Tears will stain the soil of Mother Russia with the memories of her heroes!

Good Hunting.

But as 1st Tank Company bleeds and dies they buy time for the rest of the battalion.

2nd Company is advancing on the Germans from our right.

Hurry Comrades; or here we will give our all for the cause!

You are right about the intensity level.

We are pretty much at point-blank and still closing. Good use of the screen shots. We are riding right along on the glorious charge.

Eastern front action as expected.

2nd Tank Company has taken heavy losses when they stumbled upon a German recon section. They destroyed it but got jumbled up and a single Elephant took vengeance upon them.

Those that remain are determined to make the Germans pay for their efforts with a pound of German flesh!

Good Hunting.

As two of the tank platoons have lost their leaders this company is handicapped at the moment while the assist platoon leaders take over and sort things out.

Lt. Yerokhin is closing the gap between himself and the Elephant rapidly. The range is already down to 238 meters.

Time to take this beast out!

But death waits for no man. In a flash the German machine spins and fires three times.

All three rounds are hits! Two T-34's go up in flames! Smoke pouring from the machines. No crew are seen to have left either machine.

How can it be that the Hero of the Soviet Union Lt. Yerokhin has fallen in battle?!

There is no justice in this world. Will it be that his whole family shall perish in this war against the heathens? Now only his brother can carry the fight to the German homeland!

Vengeance shall be ours!!

Good Hunting.

Out of the smoke of battle the remainder of the company do their duty and follow orders to the last tank!

3rd Tank Company is in the best shape and on the flank of two of the German heavy assault guns.

This is our best chance to drive home the hammer!

The Elephant facing the 3rd Tank Company is taking fire from both flank and rear. While the track has been damaged the rear hit does nothing.

NOTHING!!!

What does it take to put a hole in one of these beasts!!

And the SP is hit yet again, and again the round does not penetrate! We continue to hit them over and over to no effect!

What can be done?

Maybe it is time to think about ramming these monsters of Hill 254!

3rd Tank Company is facing the beast at point blank range. They are so close together the report of the German gun and the impact heard from the round are almost as one.

Here you can see the German AP round as it leaves the gun tube on it's mission of death!

More and more T-34's burn in the hot summer sun!

The ballads will be great when sung about today's sacrifice! But Lo Comrades, let us not falter in our resolve to defeat these Beasts of Hill 254! Now is the time for our debt to Mother Russia to be paid in blood if need be!

Onward to Glory!

Good Hunting.

The tank commander sees death. He is given that one fleeting moment to see his family flash before his eyes before the 88mm messenger of death strikes his tank and kills him and his crew.
