Description

It is September 6, 1943 following the debacle at Kursk the German Army reels back to the protection of the Dneiper River. The Red Army pursues hard trying to turn a retreat into a rout. You are in charge of a tiny Panzer Group (tank platoon) and you are the only unit capable of stopping them. You are outnumbered 2 to 1 but your orders are firm stop the Soviet tanks. You command a force up to 8 tanks or anti-tank guns in 5 different scenarios. The computer is your Soviet opponent. Tanktics is played out on a two piece full color 22" x 16" mapboard with 240 1/2" counters while the computer takes care of all the calculations.
