Scenario EFDx059

This scenario is a meeting engagement between two fairly equal forces, both with good morale and some armour support. The VC are simple control the East-West road and deny control to the enemy. This scenario is 44 turns long and is very bloody. I tried to have strategies in place for both sides which would see not just a charge down the road and a mass melee in the centre of the board, with the Romanians keeping a strong reserve and the Soviets using a flanking attack but given the forces involved, the terrain, and the size of the battlefield I suspect most games will end up like mine with a titanic fight right in the middle of the board. The Romanian tanks have the edge in quality just and they should deal with the opposing BT7's first before reinforcing the Infantry attack. The Soviet flanking attack did well initially using the town as cover before sweeping down but accurate artillery fire and stubborn Romanian defense slowed the attack and then beat it back meanwhile the Russian centre had buckled and Romanian units had dug themselves in on the contested road. The Romanian MG reserve then advanced and cleared the last remaining defenders the road to Odessa was open. A bit of a slug-fest this one, solid PG fare. I hope my American readers will forgive the title referring as it does to Rugby football a game I used to play in my youth.
