Drive Over the Dnepr (23 Turns )
165km SW of Smolensk: On July 9th, 1941, units of Panzergruppe 2 are poised to cross the Dnepr River near Mogilev. Intel reports that the Soviets are building a new defensive line along the river. An earlier attempt to take Mogilev on the march failed. The 10th 165km SW of Smolensk: On July 9th, 1941, units of Panzergruppe 2 are poised to cross the Dnepr River near Mogilev. Intel reports that the Soviets are building a new defensive line along the river. An earlier attempt to take Mogilev on the march failed. The 10th Motorized and 10th Panzer divisions have been ordered to cross the Dnepr by the 10th of July and advance toward Gorki. Elements of the SS Reich Motorized Division will be arriving soon to help. Should Mogilev be bypassed?
*Edited by Mr Grumpy for improved H2H play balance, Optional rules: Artillery Set Up, Recon Spotting, Optional Surrender, Quality Fatigue Modifier, Night Fatigue and Programmed Weather must be used for best play balance*. Extra scenario info can be found in the "Drive Over The Dnepr" word doc located within the game files.

#0715_02 Encirclement of Smolensk - Optional Parachute Drop (25 turns)
Smolensk, July 15th, 1941: Just over a week has passed since the Germans crossed the Dnepr River. Now the second phase of the Smolensk operation opens with an attempt to take Smolensk itself. PanzerGruppe 3 is deep in the rear north of Smolensk and PanzerGruppe 2 on the southern fringes of the city itself. The Germans were poised to bag yet another large pocket of the Red Army. The German units while strong, are spread out and deep in the enemy rear with large gaps on their flanks. This scenario, while not as large as a full Campaign is a larger scenario covering two and a half days of fighting during this critical stage of the battle. In this "What-If" scenario, the German parachute attack on Crete never occurred. Instead, the parachute troops will be dropped here in an attempt to cut off Smolensk.
