Each player has formations which activate when their chit is drawn. The Soviet player makes decisions on which formations he would like to have on the board and when. Victory conditions are based on geographical objectives, exiting units(German) and not entering reinforcements(Soviet). The combat system has no CRT. You roll a die vs your Attack Factor (anti Armor or anti Infantry)and if the modified result is equal too or less than the value, a hit is scored against that target unit.
