To support their main effort in front of Targu Frumos, the Soviets launched diversionary attacks on both flanks. Around Iasi the 33rd Rifle Corps sent three of their four divisions forward shortly after dawn. The idea was to draw off any reinforcements that might help the Axis defend Targu Frumos.
The 27th Army reported "The 33rd Rifle Corps...had no success after encountering heavy resistance and was fighting along its previous line at day's end." The three divisions combined reported 15 Romanian prisoners taken against 24 killed and 113 wounded. Needless to say the attack accomplished none of its meager goals.

The movement allowance on the counters in Airborne is misprinted. It should be "3."

Kommissars never get morale or combat modifiers. Ignore misprints.
