Eastern Front Command Ops: New Scenario "Objective Taganrog" -- Is Available for Download
|German SS troops enter Taganrog on the Sea of Azov.|
10 Oct 1941
The German 1st Panzer Army is driving on the critical port city of Rostov on the Sea of Azov as part of a larger operation along the southwest front of Army Group South.
The key to conducting offensive operations against Rostov is seizing the vital Mius river crossings near Taganrog and the port in that city to prevent naval reinforcement of the Soviet Mius River Line.
14 Panzer division is to lead this attack and has been given an ambitious timetable of completing all objectives within three days.
Opposing them are elements of two Soviet Rifle divisions. Their mission is to hold these objectives for as long as possible while behind them the Soviet front reorganizes.
* Semi-historical because troop placement and force structure below which divisions particiapted is hypothetical.
German 14th Panzer Division: 36 Panzer Regiment, 103 Panzer Grenadier Regiment, Kampfgruppe Bassler (Recon Battalion) and assorted support units.
Soviet 31st Rifle Division: 75th Rifle Regiment, 248th Rifle Regiment, 32 Artillery Regiment and elements of the 137th Tank brigade.

A note about the signatures for this scenario's briefings. They should be Rundstedt for the Germans and Lopatin for the Soviets. However, this evening I realized as I was about to push this scenario live, that the signature files I have are incorrect. I will upload the correct ones soon but in the meantime I hope you will download and play the scenario anyway!
