INFO:
Here's note from me to you. In the Battle of Korsun there is a shallow spot in the river for the Russians to deep ford across and avoid using the bridge. Since they only have 4 tanks I thought they should have another means to get armor near the other 3 flags. The shallow spot is marked by a bush before the watermill. The same sort of thing exists in Nancy, shallows outside of the 4th armor HQ and way out past the farmer's field. Still that's a chaotic map.

Sincerely, Johnny
