SUMMARY: The Russian defense line was linked up with the resting reserve soup-eating troops, a few skirmisher was a litte bit up front to lay down fire at vital cross-roads at the German attack-approaches, these Russians pulled back quickly to the reserve line as the massive on-slaught rolled forward. Russian artillery started to pour down a rain of grenades shells and had no problem to find targets for the 7 fire missions that during the day pounded the German troops. Tze Germans struggled to get across the Tramvanaya wide city boulevard as the soup-eating Russian reserves had to tuck their spoons in their belts and started to aim and shoot at the reckless Germans, crossing the boulevard often with the help of smoke placed by hand or panzers. At that point a StuG IIIB was wrecked by a hidden Russian AT gun and the Smoke-Stack Sniper killed two German leader and wounded a third, in matter of minutes. The fighting became brutalized as hand-hand fighting erupted among the soup eaters that flung themselves at the front Germans on the east side and wrong side of the wide street.

Suddenly a roar in the sky from a Stuka formation of four heavy birds dived down at the Russians and had no problem to sight the Gds SMG sq in the stone building and achieved a direct hit and disintegrated them as the earth trumbled. Another disaster struck a few moments earlier as a StuG hit the .50-cal HMG crew and killed it out right and malfunction the weapon in the process the leader picks it up and repairs it as another 458 squad joins him but suddenly lose his mind as they turn berserk under fire from a German light MTR that achieves a critical hit and wounds the leader, the charging 458 squad first suffer casualties by a nose-diving Stuka spraying its machineguns at them and then the remaining 248 rush into the Russian artillery in the open and face death.

The Russians rout back into the factories and hope the Germans do not dare to cross the open terrain and will be satisfied to have reached the railway embankment, but the proffesional Germans can sense a weakness of collapse and rush the hapless defenders on Turn 8 and get a foothold in the factory on the east side of the railway and manage to eliminate several russian squads and capture a handful of Russian weapons without much losses taken to themselves, in this final stage, thanks to the Stukas that pin down the Russians that tries to respond to the final charge. The first step have been taken, despite the bleak ending for the Russian defenders in this first morning assault, they call in more troops under the noisy loudspeaker from the German side calling for their-surrender.

SUMMARY: The Germans called down a Rocket mission that struck some factories in the rear causing no casualities, then they pushed head into the Russians lines, the Russian left flank held on to their perimeter but in the other sectors the German assault gained momentum especially when parts of the two German infantry coy had reached the Russian defense line, then the defenders were forced to conduct a fighting withdrawel in the factories [EXC: on the Russian left flank].

The dug-in T-34 tanks revealed themselves early in the battle and knocked out a Pz III with a flank shoot and repulsed the German infantry and started to fire intensive fire as their fanatic infantry support lacked the power to support them as they had their own problems caused by the relentless pressure by the Germans, When all had collapse in the central sector a cease fire luckily ended the fight for the Russians.
