To rest from my big kiev 43 scenario I decided to see what I had learned so far seeing how time could be set a short scenario from scratch. I had some notes about the battle of Soltsy in July 1941, an interesting battle lasted only few days, and this is the result after a couple of hours (perhaps more)last weekend.

- 1) On july 15 1941 Manstein's LVI Mot.Korp falls into an ambush along the only road leading to the town of Soltsy.

-2) The Soviet AI work very historical, and the spearheads of Brandengerger's 8Pz.Division were surrounded, while Jahn's 3Mot.Division on the left flank were fixed. Manstein HQ with all his staff is on the center along the road.

-3) The first attempt to establish contact with the isolated units at Solty ends up worsening the situation.

-4) Manstein decide to abandon Solty. The right flank is still uncovered because the 3ss Totenkopf division is far behind slowed by many retreating Soviet infantry units (Totenkopf commander, General Eicke was wounded by a mine on july 6, and the new appointed commander,General Keppler, has some problems reorganizing division movements).

A good result for the Soviet AI.
The final report screen is a bit disappointing.

Looks very nice with the divisional symbols. It increases the personality of the units a lot. Especially at this small scale.

Best wishes,
Vic

If you haven't already Paint.NET is an excellent freeware paint application where you can draw pixel by pixel using full alpha-layering.

Best wishes,

Don't forget, you also earn VP from enemy casualties I think.
