March Challenge Tournament: The Battle for Kharkov

Sidi Bou Zid Challenge


This month's challenge is modeled after some of the history surrounding the Third Battle of Kharkov. Even though we did not put severe restrictions on nations or tank type (the battle itself featured forces from the German and Soviet militaries) your team is certainly invited to get a little more thematic than the rules mandate while you're battling it out for the top spot.

Here's your chance to reenact a bit of history, and maybe even rewrite it. Either way, it's your opportunity to slug it out with a few other tankers for some serious gold!
