Having already secured one bridge the Soviet forces are heading to the outskirts of Bikkelheim to secure a further one.
The bridge is currently being held by a local Volksturm squad supported by a Volksgrenadier MMG in a concrete bunker and a dug in Pak40. Help is on the way to help them hold the bridge until the engineers can get there to set charges and blow it, this consists of a Volksgrenadier platoon supported by a Stug III and an Ostwind.
Bearing in on them is a platoon of T34/85's, supporting a motorised infantry platoon, together with a T70 scout tank and a 82mm mortar battery. Off table 152mm howitzers are available together with a timed Katyushka strike.
