The east town hex (right) is full of scrapping Germans and Russians. Meanwhile the Panzer btl (left) is driving back another Russian btl.
The Russians who crossed the river earlier have now come under fire, not only from the engineers but also some of the divisional artillery and AA.
Some of the German artillery (right ) redeploys to fire on the aforementioned Russian river crossers.
The Panzers have largely cleared the western approaches to town.
The situation east of the town is still serious, but the southern Russian btl has been shot up by the engineers and IG bty in the woods.
Can the brave defenders hang on?
Panzers stream over the bridge while the southern Russians are kept under fire.

Made it! The Panzers have driven off the Russians in the east and have swung north to get stuck into another btl.
The Russians don't like it up 'em!
The river crossing Russians finally take significant casualties and their morale breaks.
The Panzers drive back more Russians in the north - the Russian attack has been broken.
The Russians in the wood (top) quake at the approach of the mighty Panzers.
