1943. The sun rises above the Russian steppe and the war on the Eastern Front pauses for a moment. Everything has been quiet since the latest offensive and your tank crew has had a chance to recover. However, the hopes for another day without a mission vanish as reports from your reconnaissance planes filter in, bringing with them the first photos of the enemy's armor build up. Fortunately, during your refit, you trained your crew well and can fully rely on them.
As the German player, are you prepared to defend your section of the front against the endless Red hordes? Or, as the Soviet player, are you going to be able to break through the Fascist lines and continue the advance towards Berlin?
The Germans program their movement and turret position using cards (see samples below). They also have the aid of anti-tank guns, mines and a Stuka. The Russians have more tanks to work with but have a lot of obstales to pass through.
