Battle of Prokhorovka is the biggest tank battle in history. On 5 July 1943, the German high command launched Operation Citadel with the aim of enveloping and destroying the Soviet forces in the Kursk salient. A week into the German offensive, the Soviets launched powerful counterattacks against the attackers. In the south at Prokhorovka, the 5th Guards Tank Army attacked the II SS-Panzer Corps of the 4th Panzer Army, resulting in a large clash of armour just outside the settlement on 12 July 1943.
We want to present the biggest tank battle in history made in Men of War Assault Squad. Battle modeled with historic documents placed on huge map 1000x1000.

“Battle formations got mixed. Tanks that sustained direct hits exploded while driving at full speed. Blown off tank turrets and caterpillars flew in the air. Single shots were inaudible as the cannonade fused into a deafening roar. There were moments when due to dense powder fumes we could distinguish our tanks from German only by silhouettes in the smoke. Tank personnel in flames were jumping out of the burning knocked-out tanks and writhing on the ground, trying to put out the fire,”
~ Evgeny Shkurdalov, participant of the battle, Hero of the Soviet Union.
“There were moments when tanks were simply ramming each other, running one on top of another;
Everything was burning. Nothing like this ever happened in history of mankind”
~ Abram Ekhilevsky, participant of the battle, 90-year-old veteran.

The problem is that the Tiger's can destroy several tanks for every one of them lost so you need to rebalance, the Russians had twice as many tanks and most were destroyed (in the actual battle, operation citadel was cancelled when they were winning because the Americans landed in Sicily and units had to be deployed), the Germans lost less than 80 mostly due to mechanical failure. The Tiger's just knocked out everything they shot at, so its too easy for the Germans in your map, maybe introduce tanks traps and mines
