Played on Saturday August 12th, 2017

At 13:30 Sowjet tanks attacked from Thuringia into Lower Franconia.
Though the Germans there opted for a static defense the battle developed into a counterattack.
But the Sowjets were able to secure their ojective early on and German reinforcements did not materialize in time and in force.
Therefore the Panzergrenadiers could not dislodge the Sowjets and left Lower Franconia. And in the afternath of the battle they even deprived the Fulda area of defenders by this retreat.
