Call of Duty: United OffensiveEdit

The player plays as Yuri Petrenko, who fights through Kursk with the 67th Guards Rifle Division against Waffen-SS Panzers and Panzer-Grenadiers. Yuri has to defend the line against German SS Panzer-Grenadiers and is successful in doing so. He then destroys German Elefant Tanks firing onto the trenches; all are destroyed and most of the Panzer-Grenadiers are killed. The surviving soldiers retreat. They then move to capture a small Russian village that is being held by Waffen-SS soldiers. The town is initially cleared of German resistance but is then attacked again by several German Panzers and Panzer-Grenadiers. The Panzers are destroyed, most of the German troops are killed, and the rest retreat. The Russians successfully capture the Russian village, then head onwards to capture Ponyri.
