Lock ’n Load Tactical Dark July Second Edition. depicts the brutal battles fought west of Prochorovka between July 9th and 12th, 1943, during the epic Battle of Kursk.
Four 11” x 17” non-geomorphic maps fit together to form an immense 22” x 34” historical battlefield, covering the famed Hill 252.2, the Soviet trenches to the east, and the Oktiabrski State Farm to the north. Six scenarios—five on the historical map—will test your tactical acumen as either the determined Soviet defenders of the Motherland or the brazen 1st SS Panzergrenadier Division Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler (LAH). Dark July includes rules for hand-held RPG-43 anti-tank grenades, anti-tank mines and ditches, low wheat, tank emplacements, roadblocks, and much more.
Dark July is an expansion module; to play it you will need either Lock 'n Load Tactical: Heroes of the Motherland or Lock 'n Load: Band of Heroes with Lock 'n Load: Not One Step Back.
