This was another stand alone Chain of Command game set during the Kirkenes Petsamo Operation of 1944.
I used the 'Blitzkrieg' scenario from the eponymous Chain of Command supplement.
This gave the Russians a 2 platoon to one advantage over the 'elite' Gebrigsjagers. The Soviet sections also had 2 smgs substituted for rifles. The tricky thing was getting close enough to make use of the increased firepower in this boggy and rocky terrain.
In the end the terrain and the loss of leaders got the best of the Soviets. Link to complete flickr AAR set: link

Very cool to see someone wargame these battles.

Looks good. I've never been in Finland, let alone the far north, as late as October, but the terrain looks believable to me from seeing it summer and fall and pictures that I've seen.

It's in Norway close to the Russian boarder. I was fortunate to do a battlefield tour in 2018. Great place.
