Forest Bastion ETO (id:#62360)
(ASL 14 - Hakkaa Päälle! ID:168)
Designer: Tuomo Lukkari
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
As part of the general attack aimed at the Karelian capital of Petrozavodsk, the Finnish 11th Division was ordered to take the village of Prääzä, an important road junction over which the two sides had been fighting for a while. The division devised a three-pronged attack: Infantry Regiment 50 would outflank the Soviets from the north while Infantry Regiment 8 was sent on a southern route. Meanwhile, to keep the Soviets busy while both flanking units got into position, Infantry Regiment 20 would attack Prääzä along the road from the west. On 7 September the attack of Infantry Regiment 29 stalled in the front of the forested ridge of Niiniselkä, which the Soviets had fortified with pillboxes, trenches, and prepared fire zones. A second attack was planned for 8 September. This time, plentiful mortar support was available, including a smoke mortar platoon from the Corps reserve.

2019-07-27(A) David Garvin vs Eric Groo Finnish winTook the balance in favour of the Finns: no Soviet Wire. In the end, I was able to hit both flanking bunkers as my artillery pounded the central position, essentially fixing them there. I lifted the fire and moved in for the kill from their rear. I got into CC as often as possible, often at overwhelming odds
2019-07-27(D) Eric Groo vs D Garvin Finnish winPill boxes and prep fire zones placed badly by russians. Finnish advance took no fire from machine guns.
2019-07-10(D) Tom Abromaitis vs Finnish win
2018-04-14(D) Andy Beaton vs Richard Hooks Russian winFinnish balance and Russians still won. Pillboxes at opposite ends of the ridge and one in the middle; the Finns concentrated too hard on the left flank and couldn't get enough guys to the right bunker before they ran out of time. Starting to suspect this might be unbalanced.
2017-12-17(D) jon smith vs finnish In progresspill boxes on right of hill and centre... placed the prep fire zones ro provide clear los from first hill crest line on left and had the 3 HIP mmc on the right.. results were fins pushed into the centre where they took a while to get over the wire... tight game which came down to several combats at the end when finnish mmc failed several; times to assault Russian mmc in 2 pillboxes... the arty mainly just stopped Russians moving about and kept them in the trenches...
