WESTERN FRONT: The Soviet 20th Army's breach in the German line south of Rzhev began to fall apart as German reserves reached the front. Just north of the breakthrough, the 42nd Guards Rifle Division, along with other units, continued their attacks. The Soviets hoped to tie down local reserves and widen the breach before the Germans could react, and a ferocious struggle continued between the Guards and Panzer Grenadiers for the key village of Grediakino.
The 42nd Guards failed to take Grediakino, but did manage to push the German line west of the village back a short distance. The struggle for Grediakino continued, as local commanders on both sides ignored broader goals in their fixation on the ruined village.
This scenario could also be played using East Front maps and Red Warriors Counters.

These units should have a Direct Fire rating of 2-3, just like the RKKA and NKVD counterparts.

A familiar theme with HotSU scenarios the Soviets attacks in heavy snow to try to take a town. The Germans have a good defensive position making it very hard for the Soviets to win. Not much to make an impression on the players, infantry attacking a small detachment holding the town. Predictively the Germans win with heavy Soviet losses.
