Southern and Central Sectors..
Railway Station No.2 (southern sector) and the Mamayev Kurgan (centre) have fallen to the Germans gaining two VPs...the Germans need 12 to win 2 of which have to be two of the three Volga Ferry hexes..
Losing the Kurgan a real disaster for the Soviets as it severely restricts their ability to spot for artillery bombardments..
Massive concentration of artillery support for assaulting infantry has been a big factor in contributing to German success in attacking Soviet fortified hexes albeit with very heavy casualties for the attackers..
On the other hand the Soviets have consolidated their line somewhat utilising the Heavy and Fortified structures of the inner city..they will be hard to dig out..also the Trans-Volga artillery has started to arrive in numbers..
