The game portrays the Russian defensive mine and AT gun "belts" the Germans have to get through in this expansion of Kursk.

Cheers, any thoughts out there before we find out in about a month or so?

A good point - the sheer concentration of mines around Kursk was absurd - around 3000 mines PER SQUARE KILOMETER. If each hex represents ~40-50 square meters, that would average out to be 150-ish mines per hex? haha. :) (VERY rough math - feel free to correct. )

More like 7,5 per square if you evenly divide the Square Kilometer into 50m*50m squares.

Hexes are 40 to 50 Meters wide. That makes them have a lot more than 50 square meters. Also a square Kilometer has 1 million square meters.

I guess the game comes with a lot of mine counters.

And I hope a lot of AT guns, bunkers, trench lines and maybe even some dug in Russian tanks....

Cheers, only a month or less to go and we will find out!!:)
