Like to think about your next move rather than having quick reaction times? Battle Series Eastern Front - Kursk - Battle at Prochorovka is the game for you.
Battle Series Eastern Front - Kursk - Battle at Prochorovka, covers one of largest single tank battle in the history of warfare. Approximately 1000 tanks and assault guns met head to head near the town of Prochorovka, in a battle that became a desperate close range shoot-out which would decide the ultimate success or failure of Operation Zitadelle.
The 2nd SS Panzer Korps began it's attack on July 3rd, and spent the next 8 days breaking through the dense Russian defensive positions. During the late afternoon and evening of the 11th, they broke through and repulsed a counterattack by the Russian 31st Tank Corps. Reorganizing during the night, the panzers struck northward before dawn on the 12th. As dawn broke, the lead German elements ran head-on into the lead elements of the Soviet 5th Guards Tank Army and the battle was on. It was to last all day, in confused and savage fighting at close ranges.
This game recreates that day with the player being able to play both as the Russians and Germans or against the AI.

Ratings and Reviews
Good baseline for this game. To dramatically improve, you need to: stop the game from crashing or locking up, be able to de-select a battle before having to attack (after you see the odds) and have the view pan to the area of the map where Russians are moving and are then attacking.
CRASH on my IPAD
Very excited to find old school turned based hexagonal war game. Though limited in scope, the clash at Kursk is perfect battle for armor enthusiasts. Unfortunately, the game has crashed every time I've played. When I clicked the box to play against the AI, I never made it further than TURN 2 before the crash. I did play both sides and got to turn 8 before it crashed again--bummer. I WANT to play this game, so please fix. May I suggest a SAVE feature and NEXT UNIT button.
Invokes nostalgia from the Avalon Hills days - needs some modern conveniences however - zoom out to view whole map, jump map, combat prognosis view ....
Looking forward to some nice evolution of this line - good start !
