ROUND 1 - SCENARIO


The Battle Begins 1 September 2019
and
The Battle Ends 10 November 2019

#a0707_01 Efremov: Hungarian First Blood(HTH)
20 Turns

Efremov - Jul 7th, 1942 to Jul 9th, 1942. 2nd Hungarian Army had only arrived in Russia early in July 1942 and was immediately sent to protect Heeresgruppe von Weichs extended right flank. The Soviet Bryansk Front was being forced back by the unrelenting German pressure, but the heavy industry and crossings over the River Mecha at Efremov required a more stout defence. Unfortunately for the Hungarians, the city was defended by 1st Tank Corp.


ROUND 2 - SCENARIO


The Battle Begins 14 November 2019
and
The Battle Ends 6 February 2020

#a0122_02 Gluzino: Cutting the Neck(HTH)
24 Turns


Gluzino, West of Rzhev - Jan 22nd to Jan 24th, 1942. Shvetsov's 29th Army was preparing for the final push to capture Rzhev. The city's capture was overdue and the highway needed to be in Soviet hands to better supply 39th Army to the south. Shvetsov had the additional challenge of widening the breach in 9th Army's lines, or risk having all supply routes south cut.



ROUND 3 - SCENARIO


The Battle Begins 9 February 2020
and
The Battle Ends 4 April 2020

#a0122_03 Sukhinichi II: We Will Rescue You(HTH)
24 Turns


Sukhinichi - Jan 22nd to Jan 24th, 1942. The Sukhinichi garrison had held out for over two weeks, despite constant Soviet assaults. Von Schweppenburg's XXIV Korps (mot) was pushing hard to relieve 216th Infantry Division and 18th Panzer Division was only a few kilometres away. In addition 208th & 339th Infantry Divisions were ordered to keep a corridor open so that the garrison and 18th Panzer Division had a safe route to fall back on.


OPITIONAL RULES


All battles will be played with the
Fog of War option selected and the
Slider Bar set to dead center.
Opponent pairings will be determined by the moderator of the tournament.

All questions and any disputes will be handled by the Moderator with
all decisions rendered by the Tournament Moderator in such instances being final and binding to all parties.

Brigadier General Harry Haines: Notes on the tournament, scenarios and optional rules...


The first scenario, Efremov, requires a successful early on river crossing, but is otherwise a straight defense versus offense operation Either side may achieve a MAJOR V or a MAJOR D depending upon player skill.

Both the other 2 scenarios are more complex, requiring a mixture of offense and simultaneous mobile defense by both players to achieve success. Either player may achieve a MAJOR V or a MAJOR D depending on how far out of the box the players skills can take them. A conventional straight up defense or offense proably won’t work!

DELAYED DISRUPTION REPORTING adds an additional level of “fog of war” to the game and helps to equalize players of differing skill levels.

TOURNAMENT AWARDS


The victor will receive the victory medal and all those members particiapting will receive ribbon... And all those participating will be awared double battle points based on the turns completed.



The army with the most points will be awarded the Army Victory medal. Everyone's game score impacts the outcome for the Army Victory Medal..
