Hi, I am looking for Eastern front scenarios that meet the following requirements.

1) 'Real' engagements/battles, not made up scenarios.
2) Games of a reasonable size, A couple of battalions or more, brigade, division etc. So not skirmish rules.

The rules we game with are flexible, but generally each tank would represent about 3 tanks, and a unit of six bases of infantry would represent a company.

Any suggestions for resources?

Grey Steel, Red Storm Regimental Scenarios in the Soviet Union 1941-1943 by Andrew Rolph, available on Wargames Vault link might suit, it gives 15 scenarios, with roughly 10 to 15 stands to a battalion.

Rapid fire published some excellent scenario books both for the eastern and western fronts…tanks represent 5 vehicles if I recall and infantry 1:15.

Check their websiite , they may still be available as PDFs, but I am not sure

Spearhead has some great scenarios if you have their rule set

I'd second Andrew Rolphs title. There's also, if you prefer your fascists to speak Italian rather than German, a set of scenarios he's done on the italian CSIR

Slightly different scale 1 vehicle/gun represents 2 or 3 real world vehicles guns and 10+ infantry stands represents a company is Battlefront the WWII version of Fire and Fury.

As noted, the Rapid Fire and Andrew Rolph publications.

Also:

TAC Publications "Eastern Front 1944" which includes a number of scenarios and a siege of Tarnopol mini campaign.

Where the Iron Crosses Grow for Spearhead.

I also took the Skirmish Campaigns Kursk scenarios and turned the back into their original brigade sized battles:)
