Black Snow and Final Offensive: Mius Front
« on: May 27, 2018, 06:03:28 PM »

I just happened to check on Mius Front.  There's two more DLC.  One for the final thrust across the Mius in August 1943, and one for the last gasps of Operation Spark in March 1943.

  Things are pretty dusty on the Mius in August and there are a lot of T34s:

   I could not think of a rational method for chosing a DLC for Mius front,so I just took the first that I did not yet have: Black Snow (up north 1943 operation Spark) -- its early morning so the black snow is a bit purple:

Black Snow is a dlc where you will fight the terrain nearly as much as the enemy.

Mine fields, felled trees, wire, trenches, AT mines etc.

Never mind the fact that the dlc is a resource hog. But man, what a map. What an operation. What a slugfest.

For the sadist.

  I thought this one had the little Sparky the Spark for Operation Spark (Iskra pr larsp) Flexi the Cat cartoon insignia on it.

  IT's pretty grim but my irrational approach is just to gradually play through all the DLC in the chronology of their initial availability.  And even in reality Operation Spark weren't no picnic.  Toward the end, Russian commanders more or less told Zhukov to go play on another set of fronts.  They had had enough and broken through to Leningrad -- end of story
