The images below of close-up figures ans models are depicting the left part of this pentagon board called the "north" side.
Close-Up 1: Canal
This cultvated channel, running from North to South, creates a natrual barrier for any vehicle. A bridge is the only solution to cross by a T-34.
Close-Up 2: IS-2
Next to the channel a Russian IS-2 steams up to assist the T-34 and to intercept the German Tiger I.
Close-Up 3: Barrel
The IS-2 with a 122 mm barrel is outclass all tanks, a game changer in tank battles, although they Tiger II with a special modified 88mm should not be underestimated.
Close-Up 4: Perpendicular
Along the outskirts of the channel, made out of massive boulders, also Russian troops are reinforcing the encircled comrades on the bridge.
Close-Up 5: Intersection
From above the scene resembles a crossroad with tanks quarreling the priority over the other.
Close-Up 6: Nebelwerfer
One of the most icon rocket launchers of the WW2 scene; somehow budged through the woods and placed on a ledge of the hill to strike down on the enemy.
Close-Up 7: Ledge
Without the Nebelwerfer, the high spot is ideal to aim for the enemy as almost the whole battle field can be overseen. Unfortunately no heavy equipment can be attracted.
Close-Up 8: Surpise Attack
Another spot with hidden Germans sneaking upon the Russian reinforcements, however on a lower level.
Close-Up 9: Portal
Peak in the tunnel from the North side where just a half-track with AA drove through.
Close-Up 10: Line Of Defense
Near the Channel shore, on the west side, the Russian created a barricade took position to provide reinforcements the time to back-up the bridge defenders.
Close-Up 11: Family Of Deer
Spectators save and high above all clatter of arms and madness of mankind.
