This scenario saw 6PD awaiting the arrival of the rest of the Korps, about 100km short of Leningrad. While there were obviously no Russians around(!), Raus had to hold the town and bridges and keep open the road to the south.
German forces amounted to:
Schutzen Regiment - two btls each reduced to 2 Cp and 1 HW Co, plus AT, Engr and Inf Gun Cos.
2 Art Btls - 1 with 105s and 1 with 150s.
Flak Btl - 2 light and 1 heavy (88) btys
Panzer Btl - reduced to 3 Co and 1 SPW Co
Engineer Co from division.

Flak, artillery and panzers. Raus's halftrack is on this side of the left hand bridge.
Achtung - Ruskies! An unpleasant surprise lumbers out of the woods to the west...
...and east. Bugger.
Oh look, there are more in the north. Marvellous.
The various Russian steamrollers edge forward, but the '88s have seen off the tanks in the west. Phew!
The brown hordes weren't too impressed by the tanks' departure.
Russian artillery was firing a programmed barrage at the defenders of the town.
The hordes close in!
The eastern town hex about to be close assaulted by a Battalion of Bolshevists.
Meanwhile on the quiet(?) road to the south the engineers have company!
