Playing the Operation

Given the make-up of the German forces this version is only for playing Germans Vs the AI. If you would like to play Soviets then please download ‘Kampfgruppe Langkeit H2H'.

For the opening action please ensure you have good visibility. Poor vis will affect the playability of the opening battle slot. You may need to recycle the game to open with good weather.

This operation is based on a combat report by Hauptmann Hans Jochaim Schwanner and is taken from ‘Panzertruppen Vol2' by Tom Jentz.

Topography is based on the map sketched out in the book and also from Soviet maps and photos of the area.

I have classed the scenario as semi-historical in that I have taken a best guess at the actual Soviet force make up.
