What happened close to Karbala city…
Armies met close to Karbala, old Babylon City. It’s very crucial city especially for locals living for centuries in the Euphrates basin. That’s why Axis Combined Group left city and prepared for defense at boundaries of the town. To avoid any unnecessary destructions.

Battle started early morning and took all long day. SSU wanted to break the defense lines at all cost. Infantry moved forward but were stopped by Mercenaries & Axis infantry supported by Mechs. Moreover first wave of SSU tanks very stopped by Ukraine Matrioshka. During this morning hours several duels happened.
Ukraine Red Thunders decimated Tiger Claws but after that were massacred by Natashia.
Angela Spy killed Red Command Officer and Medic.
SSU mechs wanted to hunt down PrinzLuther but were stopped by The Ghosts
Moment of truth have started, second attack have started just after front-line stabilization. Again, and again, and again… lots of aggressive moves and attacks conducted by SSU. They were stopped thanks to large maneuverability of defenders. Unfortunately it was linked with several losses, especially on left flank and in center. Nevertheless few good punches hurt SSU forces.
Leopard eliminated Winter Child and after that Red Fury.
Jozef Stalin was eliminated Heilige Tod.
Heavily beaten Axis Combined Group still protected the town. Third and last attack didn’t help SSU, they lost the heaviest tank Karl Marx. Matrioshka proofed that 155 mm guns are very deadly. JagdLuther destroyed Natashia and that was last attack of SSU. Karbala was defended.
