Troops have to ride bicycles, the fuel is in too short supply to use on simple errands.
A heavy tank battalion, at full strength.
Despite the lose of eight Tiger I tanks, the unit received eight of the new Tiger II model A tank.
The armored cars stand by for a mission.
The Tiger tanks are guarded by sentries placed all around them. They are pulled back from the front while a new mission is prepared. Will they hold open the pocket while the others retreat? Will they have to be used as a spear point to break out past the Russians? Only the recon units can answer that question.
