We join the action again as the panzers surge forward on the German right. Soon some T34s were smouldering nicely.
The Germans in Ponyri soon got pushed out by (vast quantities of) Russians who appeared from the left. What a rotten trick!
A close up of the burning T34s. A pleasing sight from the turret of my Tiger.
Soon a carefully hoarded run of cards allowed the German Panzer attack to fully develop - with a breach being made in the minefield (right) and Tigers running amok (well trundling amok) in the Sov defence line.
With the Soviet armour all eliminated and Ponyri back in German hands it was Iron Crosses all round and a hero's welcome back in the Fatherland.
