WG259: JAHDE'S TIGERS"; Scenario Design by Pete Pollard ; REV 0

WEST OF LAKE PEIPUS, SEPTEMBER 3, 1943 : The Russian have displaced the Germans from the Narva Line, but now their advance is slowed by delaying actions until the Germans can complete their establishment of the Panther Line. Units of the Second Shock Corps came headlong into elements of the 11th SS "Nordland" seting up perimeter defences around yet another Russian village, soon however to be the last. The Russian forceshave nearly cleared the Germans from the Russian heartland, and soon the fighting will be conducted in the Baltic States.

VICTORY CONDITIONS: The Russians must clear the village center (enclosed by the roads) on board 3 of all German squads/crews. AFV's and leaders do not count toward or against these victory conditions.

BOARD LAYOUT: As shown (Note: the board numbers are in the correct position, however, on the actual boards the number would be up-side down.)

 N  |            |            4 |       
 O  |            |              |     
 R  +---------------------------+    
 T  |            |            3 |   
 H  |            |              |    

Six full game turns; Germans setup first; Russians move first.


AT START: Elements of the 11th SS "Nordland"; Set up on any whole hex of board 3. The ATG and its crew may set up HIP.

TURN 2: 'Fire Brigade' of Abteilung 502: Enter from any west and/or south edge hexes.


AT START: Set up on any whole hex on board 4.

SSR 1: All level 1 hills are ground level and all level 2 hills are level 1.
SSR 2: BID FORCE: Both the German radion and any bid force radio(s)must define the OBA module secretly defined in the first rally phase must be: 4 missions of 80mm, 3 missions of 100mm, 2 missions of 120mm, or 1 mission of 150mm.
SSR 3: When personal leader counters are not in play, substitute a 8-1 leader.

Aftermath: The typical German response was to bolster the stretched defenses by providing support from a mobile fire brigade. Abteilung 502, with Maj. Willy Jahde's Tiger blazing a path clear of Russian tanks, usually was called upon to plug the gap.
