Overview

Inteligency and signals analists had shown that that the Ukraine was not compleatly done. The local rebels had deployed several heavy tanks and many 45mm anti-tank guns and many 7.62mm DT Degtyarev light machine guns around the city with much tactical concern. The German [| Panzerkampfwagen E-100] tanks clashed with Polish rebel [| 10TP] tanks and Soviet [| PPG tankettes] outside the city of Kiev whist Polish rebel TP7 tanks and a mixture of Soviet [| T-90 self-propelled anti-aircraft gun] and fixed anti-aircraft guns in the city had made a direct assault virtually impossible. After the 4th day of tank clashes, in which both Romanian and Free Polish units had distinguished themselves for their exceptional valour, it was deemed that [| 800 mm calibre 'Dora' Schwerer Gustav gun] was deployed to full effect. It's 6 rounds on the would prepare the way for the final, bitterly fought, Axis assault on the 10th.

Causes of the conflict

The local communist resistance forces had hunkered down and would not let the western ⅓ of the city fall. It was of a tactical necessity that the district was to be conquered to stiffle any remaining treat to both the Reich and its allie Romania.

Tactics

Result

A German Victory, but with noticeable loss of momentum by the Hungarian and Lithuania forces. Whist fiercely anti-communist, Lithuania knew it had met it's match and was suffering from military over-stretch.

Political outcome

The Reich had made yet another political victory over Communism. It had also crushed another rebellion, which added to the propaganda and the legends which now began to surface about the strength and invinciblity of the Wehrmact.
