Bagration: Soviet Forces on the Eastern Front 1944

Bagration: Soviet Spotlight

Bagration: Soviet Spotlight
With the D-Day series of books coming to a close it is time to shine the spotlight on the Eastern Front. The first in our series of three Bagration books is Bagration: Soviet covering the Soviet forces on the Eastern Front in 1944.This book is jam packed full of interesting Soviet Formations and Units, as well as plenty of background, and three new river crossing themed missions.

The Bagration: Soviet book starts with background covering the pivotal events of Operation Bagration, the Soviet Army’s massive offensive against the Germans centred on Byelorussia that began on 22 June 1944.

Soviet Starter Force - Heavy Assault Group (Plastic) (SUAB13)
The Soviet 11th Guards Army (11-ya Gvardeyskaya Armiya) and 31st Army (31ya Armiya) fell upon Orsha on 26 June 1944. A solitary Soviet tank brigade from the 2nd Tank Corps swept around to the west of the city, completing the encirclement. The German remnants of General Volkers’ 27th Army Corps were now trapped inside the city and prepared for a tenacious defence of the city centre.

T-34 Tank Battalion (Plastic) (SUAB12)

T-34 Tank Battalion (Plastic) (SUAB12)
The T-34 possesses an unprecedented combination of firepower, mobility, protection and ruggedness. The T-34 is the mainstay of any Soviet army. Armed with an 85mm gun, the T-34 is able to go toe-to-toe with any German vehicle, and they are cheap enough that you can field an entire battalion of them!

Rifle Company (Plastic) (SBX79)
The Strelkovy (riflemen) form the bulk of the RKKA, the Red Army. Their role is to break through enemy defences for the mechanised troops to exploit and to follow them to hold their gains.

SMG Company (Plastic) (SBX80)

SMG Company (Plastic) (SBX80)
The sub-machine gun is already a deadly close assault weapon. Putting it into the hands of Soviet heroes creates some of the most deadly assault troops in the world.

Storm Group (Plastic) (SBX81)
The actions of the Storm Group are short, fast and daring. The commander prepares his Storm Group for the mission at hand, tailoring his unit to suit what is needed to defeat the enemy and take the objective.

Engineer-Sapper Company (SBX67)

Engineer-Sapper Company (SBX67)
Engineer-Sappers are the elite arm of the Red Army’s engineer corps. These well-trained engineering assault troops are called on to overcome the most difficult enemy defences. Assault groups are formed based upon the nature of the enemy defences faced by the advancing Soviet army.

Maksim Machine-gun Company (Plastic) (SU780)
Fire support from the old, reliable Maksim machine-gun gives the rifle battalion the ability to keep the Germans pinned to the earth and unable to fire while the riflemen close and overrun their positions.

82mm And 120mm Mortar Company (Plastic) (SU781)

82mm And 120mm Mortar Company (Plastic) (SU781)
When the heavy guns of the artillery batteries are otherwise occupied, it is useful for the infantry to have their own indirect-fire weapon. The 82mm And 120mm Mortars can be just as good as the bigger guns at digging infantry out of cover. Soviet mortars have built-in wheels, so the mortars can move quickly to keep up with the infantry that they are supporting.

M3 Scout Transports (SU206)
The US M3 Scout Car was another piece of Western equipment sent to the Eastern Front to aid the Soviets in their battle against the invading Wehrmacht. Employed by the Red Army’s reconnaissance companies, the M3 Scout Transports were used to dash forward through machine gun fire, returning fire with their own .50 cal MG. Once at close range, the infantry would dismount and assault in a short and bloody attack.

100mm Heavy Tank-Killer Company (SU521)

100mm Heavy Tank-Killer Company (SU521)
The 100mm BS-3 anti-tank gun is one of the most powerful anti-tank gun produced during the war. Despite mainly being used in an antitank role, the weapon’s calibre means that its High Explosive (HE) round is extremely effective; allowing it to fulfil duel roles on the battlefield.

Race to Minsk is the second in a series of Ace Campaigns, a narrative-driven system of Flames Of War battles. Ace Campaigns are extremely flexible in allowing players to tailor their campaign to fit their playgroups needs. There are three different modes that you can play the campaign in: Story Mode, Extended Mode, and Aces Mode. Story mode is your shortest campaign that only uses the Story and Reward cards, while Extended allows you to play longer campaigns by adding in side missions. The Aces mode can be used with Story Mode or Extended Mode and allows players to create their own unique commander with special abilities that will give them an edge during the course of the campaign.
