I've never been too fond of the intrinsic value of massed tank formations. Maybe because I rarely get to command anything bigger than a company of them. In this Combat Mission Red Thunder scenario, I am in command of Soviet cavalry troops trying to clear the road towards Baranovichi. Just when my own tactical shortcomings and bad luck were about to catch up with my men and machines, mass and speed saved the day.
