As winter set in, the trap laid carefully by the crafty Russian Bear, vengeance to be exacted by his STAVKA Generals and those in the field ... snapped shut on hapless Axis Satellite soldiers from Romania ... and Werhmacht soldiers from 4th Panzer Army and other formations. As the icy blasts swept across the Steppe, one of the greatest military calamities in history was unleashed upon the men of multiple nations. It was Operation URANUS.
Despite YEARS of tactical-level simulations, with various board and map permutations, the openness of the Russian Steppe is still unexplored terrain. Longer LOSs, longer shoots, and just having the vantage point of watching Ivan .. not to mention those state-of-the-art early T-34 tanks... heading your way as you rub some feeling back into your icy hands and prepare to ram one more AP round into your PaK 38.
It features 6 BRAND NEW maps - in the largest geo size - with a batch of 8 NEW scenarios - all Russian Front Winter themed - that play on them, featuring STEPPE TERRAIN with printed snow drifts, Slopes/Hachures to make subtle undulations important for crack terrain analysts ... and just open terrain unlike anything out there to date, specifically to model the time and place.
