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.

Additional Notes

This scenario could also be played using East Front maps and Red Warriors Counters.

Display Relevant AFV Rules

AFV Rules Pertaining to this Scenario's Order of Battle
  • Vulnerable to results on the Assault Combat Chart (7.25, 7.63, ACC), and may be attacked by Anti-Tank fire (11.2, DFT). Anti-Tank fire only affects the individual unit fired upon (7.62, 11.0).
  • AFV's are activated by tank leaders (3.2, 3.3, 5.42, 6.8). They may also be activated as part of an initial activating stack, but if activated in this way would need a tank leader in order to carry out combat movement.
  • AFV's do not block Direct Fire (10.1).
  • Full-strength AFV's with "armor efficiency" may make two anti-tank (AT) fire attacks per turn (either in their action segment or during opportunity fire) if they have AT fire values of 0 or more (11.2).
  • Each unit with an AT fire value of 2 or more may fire at targets at a distance of between 100% and 150% of its printed AT range. It does so at half its AT fire value. (11.3)
  • Efficient and non-efficient AFV's may conduct two opportunity fires per turn if using direct fire (7.44, 7.64). Units with both Direct and AT Fire values may use either type of fire in the same turn as their opportunity fire, but not both (7.22, 13.0). Units which can take opportunity fire twice per turn do not have to target the same unit both times (13.0).
  • Demoralized AFV's are not required to flee from units that do not have AT fire values (14.3).
  • Place a Wreck marker when an AFV is eliminated in a bridge or town hex (16.3).
  • AFV's do not benefit from Entrenchments (16.42).
  • AFV's may Dig In (16.2).
  • Closed-top AFV's: Immune to M, M1 and M2 results on Direct and Bombardment Fire Tables. Do not take step losses from Direct or Bombardment Fire. If X or #X result on Fire Table, make M morale check instead (7.25, 7.41, 7.61, BT, DFT).
  • Closed-top AFV's: Provide the +1 modifier on the Assault Table when combined with infantry. (Modifier only applies to Germans in all scenarios; Soviet Guards in scenarios taking place after 1942; Polish, US and Commonwealth in scenarios taking place after 1943.) (ACC)
  • Assault Gun: if closed-top, provide the +1 Assault bonus, when applicable

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

Scenario HoSU006

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.
