We had a 3 table Late War FoW game as one of the Christmas games at the club. The scenario was based around 3 adjoining and interconnected 6x4 tables, with 3 players per side fielding 100 points each. Soviets versus Germans. There were certain restrictions on army composition, namely no infantry, no artillery and limited A/T guns – providing a proper mass tank battle.

All three Russian players opted for T34/85 battalions with support from SU100s, SU85s and some IS2s. The German players fielded a mix of PzIVs, Panthers, Hetzers and Marders. both sides had air support in the form of Shturmoviks and Stukas.

The Soviets went on an all out frontal assault, aggressively forgoing the opportunity to fire in the first turn in order to close in with the enemy. This worked well on the wings, less well in the centre. In the next few turns, the Russian T34s got the better of the tank-on-tank action, and collected significantly more objective points, to earn a well deserved victory.
