Here’s the historical situation:

Date: January 24, 1943
Location: Arnautovo, Russia
Attacker: Russian / Partisan (17th Tank Corps and Local Partisans)
Defender: Italian (Val  Chiese Battalion, 6th Alpini Regiment, Bergamo Artillery Group, Tridentina Division/5th Alpini Regiment)

Russian troops launched a surprise sortie against the village of Arnautovo which was held by the Italian Val Chiese Battalion of the 6th Alpini Regiment and some divisional artillery. To add to the dismay of the Italian defenders, they were also beset by Russian partisans coming from the southwest. The Italian artillery gunners had to use direct fire in their desperate attempt to stave off the Russian attack. . .

  1. This was a really good scenario…tough fighting.
    Losing both of those INF guns reminded me of Scott’s INF guns a while back…
