Our game pitched three German platoons with 20 support points attacking factories held by two Russian platoons with 14 support.
|Kapitan Deaconev's Infantry Platoon (me) was defending the Viagra Chemical Works on our right flank|
As Russians we had chosen in support 1 x 76mm Infantry Gun, 1 x man-pack Flame-Thrower, 1 x 12.7mm HMG, 1 x Sniper and for a bit of fun, 1 x Commisar.

|Russians deploy two sections into forward positions among the ruined fuel storage|
|While sailors take up position in the upper floors of the office block and the forward trenches by the rail lines.|
|Hauptmann Speiche's Infantry begin a prolonged firefight with the Russians in the ruined fuel storage (their orders had been to distract the Russians from the hidden advance through the sewers against their centre).|
|Meanwhile on the right flank Hauptmann Schewardt's Pionere begin their assault on the forward Russian trenches. One section advancing toward the signal box, another right-flanking while a third took up overwatch positions in the ruins behind them.|
As the advance toward the factories from both flanks began, Hauptmann Seebrucke's Pionere platoon, accompanied by their flame-thrower support advanced unseen through the central sewer toward the vulnerable gap between the defending Russians......
