Easter Game Number II: A quick tank duel in White Russia 1944

After playing the first game it was time for Lauren to leave for yoga, which left me to my devices for 2 hours.  I decided to play myself in a massive armor game pitting the forces of the Das Reich against a Soviet Armor Brigade.  Below are some snapshots of this quickie.

Here are the soviets about to advance across the river.  They have been ordered to protect the hard won ground and bridge so they built a PAK front.

Some of the Waffen SS moving over a ploughed field awaiting the main armor push through the line before they are deployed to clear the PAK front.

I did not capture any other pics of the engagement to share, but the Germans were defeated handily by the nearly 3-1 ratio of armor.  The Germans did not go down without a fight a destroyed 15 Soviet tanks before their eventual defeat.
