Oct 17, 1941. Remnants of cut-off Soviet infantry units, scattered after the fall of Kiev, have begun partisan activities. A heavily armed group of partisans operating near Priluki have been tracked by a group of soldiers from the German 161st Inf. Div. sent to clean up the area. Worse for the Soviets, a detached squad of SS trackers are trailing a group of arriving partisan reinforcements from the east.

“Comrades, this is a main supply route for the Germans. We will mine the road and ambush the next convoy.
Destroy as many trucks as possible and then melt away to the east. We will rendezvous at camp.” - Partisan Leader Viktor S.

Last night I'd say we did the last playtest (thanks to Pino for his patience), the scenario can be considered final!
The Soviet heavy machine gun must be strenuously defended!
German victory definitely deserved!

Great scenario, very well balanced.
The Winter Weather deck is great!!

The custom Winter Weather deck can definitely change the scenario with Heavy or Light Snow cards that could be active from the very beginning.
Furthermore, the addition of the LMG specialization (instead of the classic HMG) should make the scenario more "dynamic".
