Battle Academy 2 Battle of Kursk

Product Info

.

In the summer of 1943 both Soviet and German High Commands gathered their strength for what they both believed would be a decisive battle. 

The Germans assembled their most powerful divisions, freshly equipped with the latest equipment, to attack the north and south flanks of the salient around the city of Kursk.  The Soviets, having deduced the German plan, cram their forces into the bulge, creating layer after layer of defensive positions to stop the German panzers in their tracks.  Two titanic armies meet head on in the golden cornfields of Russia.

Battle of the Kursk is the first expansions for the action-packed tactical masterpiece Battle Academy 2. It focuses on the key events of the Soviet counteroffensive and can be played from both sides: capture the station at Ponyri, the “little Stalingrad”, defend the road to Oboyan and launch the armoured charge at Prokhorovka. 

Use the massive firepower of the German super heavy tanks to blast your way through the endless lines of trenches and bunkers or rally the Soviet defenders to hold out against the onslaught. 

Battle Academy 2 - Battle of Kursk is an expansion for Battle Academy 2 and requires Battle Academy 2 to play

Wargamer.fr Review
"In the end, this expansion is a success if you are already happy with the BA2 engine that supports small battlefields"

Grogheads Review
"...(with Kursk) you are getting what you pay for: a solidly built game that will challenge you, present you interesting and varied Eastern Front content and a great variety of units..."

Armchair General Review
92% - "...the feel of the scenarios is historical, perhaps more so than other grognard games. Combined with ease of play and the vast replay opportunity, this product is a worthy addition to any gamers shelf."
