SPECIAL SCENARIO RULES:
- SSR 206.1: All hills are considered flat open ground.
- SSR 206.2: Russian tanks do not have compete freedom
of movement due to lack of wireless equipment. The Russian player must roll
one die during his Rally Phase for every multiple of six (or fraction thereof)
remaining mobile AFVs. The resulting number is the number of AFVs that may
move that turn. AFVs already on board are not prevented from firing, pivoting,
or changing their turret covered arc within the hex they already occupy. Russian
AFVs are exempt from this restriction only if they are unbuttoned (commander
in CE position) and in the LOS of the designated command AFV (also unbuttoned
at the start of the Movement Phase. AFVs entering from off board meet these
requirement only if they enter unbuttoned and in the same hex using sequential
movement. If the designate command AFV (initially the KVIIA) is eliminated
or immobilized, another AFV may be so designated at the start of the following
appearance of a heavy tank force on their exposed flank cause considerable concern
for the Germans. The Russians pushed into the suburbs, however, they encountered
anti-aircraft weapons and withdrew with only half of their armor remaining.
