Graviteam continues to deliver great historical tactical wargaming at an astonishing pace. Not only I'm still halfway with the previous DLC, but also I have to complete the one released before. This is a great problem to have.
Furtive Spring covers actions in Fedorovka, Peschanoe, Nepokrytaya, between March 13 through April 9, 1942. This is a unique view of the preliminaries of the Second Battle of Kharkov, with forces from the main units from both sides (the 10th Tank Brigade, the 133rd Tank Brigade and associated Rifle Divisions for the Soviet side and the 294th Infantry Division plus its ad-hoc armored units for the German side). The 10 operations included go from the early Soviet attempts to break through, the culmination point of the offensive and the German counterattack. The operations are short and intense(4 turns most of them, except for one which is 7 turns), with a low level of complexity apt for the beginner commander. Please don't be fooled by the short duration of the operations, the real challenge is to keep up the tempo in a terrain that despite being mostly level has a lot of micro-terrain features that favor the infantry fight.
Tactical combat is the meat and potatoes of Graviteam Tactics, and this screenshot feature is about an operation that I am playing right now as the Soviets.
