Great introduction to Battalion level command and Soviet doctrine. The very generous artillery and large tank to PC ratio suggests tactics described in FM100-2, and that's what I did to solve the scenario. My first attempts were a long, methodical approach with recon and artillery to snipe units, but this just resulted in my forces being flanked and having artillery called on them. I even tried to do some tank recon but the insufficient optics of T-72 made it unproductive.


Putting the tanks into an attack frontage in Line formation and advancing them forward in the open, with the scouts immediately behind on the flanks and the PCs trailing a few hundred meters further behind, the scenario was relatively straightforward. Be sure to use a lot of smoke-screens and dismount the infantry only at the last few hundred meters! Artillery must be firing constantly at the enemy defensive positions. Keep advancing and don't stay still for more than a minute or two lest their artillery gets dialed in.
