End of Turn 48.
The Axis attempt to break in to the South of the Kharkov defences, but are encircled.
The probe and retreat tactic of the Axis continues as they try to surprise the Soviets and capture a rail bridge. A bit gamey as the Soviets can only blow the bridges up if there are Axis units within seven hexes.
End of Turn 50. The Axis have freed their trapped troops, but the Soviets hope that it has cost them valuable time.
