Tanks are the most important aspect of this mission, thus it's best to select the armored doctrine (improvised armor, sandbags) or the support doctrine (mechanics - 1 durability repairs, camouflage and sandbags). First you will have to take over some villages but later it's all about tank battles. Although mines may come in handy, there will be a lot of hostile units and you run out of time to place them. Furthermore, hostile tanks will often travel with enemy infantry.

You will receive many tanks and destroyers. You don't need all your forces to take over the villages but you can take them if you want to make sure that all goes according to your plan. First, take your infantry to scout the forest on the right (1). Switch off the free fire mode and select a small group of tanks and infantry. Fire at them with your artillery. Now, take 6-8 tanks and locate them on the field, in front of the village (2). Conduct an aerial recon, and bring infantry, artillery units and the supply vehicle. Once the plane reveals the village, focus on dealing with the heavy anti-aircraft gun first (if possible). Although the enemy will call reinforcements (three tanks, one of which is the elite T-34/76), you will have more tanks on your side.

Some Panzer IV tanks is all you need to keep your artillery safe. Use your infantry to mark targets for your artillery. - Battle of Kursk | German| Campaign - German - Sudden Strike 4 Game Guide

Line up your tanks in front of the village, and send your infantry to the forest on the left side of the village (3). There are some scouts in the forest, so eliminate them before you get closer to any buildings. Don't deploy your artillery just yet, as three light tanks will attack you from the south. Once you deal with them, proceed with the artillery and monitor the village. There are some anti-tank guns, two howitzers, a heavy anti-aircraft gun, and one light gun. When you begin your assault, the enemy will call upon tanks from outside of the map - usually some KV-1. Once this assault is over, leave 4-6 tanks, your artillery and an infantry platoon with your ally in the forest nearby.

If you leave some of your forces in the forest, it will be easier to support your ally later on. - Battle of Kursk | German| Campaign - German - Sudden Strike 4 Game Guide

You will be ordered to assault the north village but stay away from it for now. Regroup all the remaining forces in the village and fortify the location (5). Place some of the tanks in thick bushes in front of the village. Tanks with turrets should be placed in the middle, and fortified with sandbags. Place your StuG destroyers on both sides, and in the bushes (especially if you have camouflage). Your artillery should be in the middle of the village to effectively deal with hostile infantry.

If you line up several cannons, you will gain a wide angle of fire. Even heavy tanks will not be able to resist such power. Place your infantry in the fields and the wooden tower to increase your vision (the white arrow). - Battle of Kursk | German| Campaign - German - Sudden Strike 4 Game Guide

Most of the time, the enemy will attack directly from north, and will attempt to strike both flanks twice. It will be more difficult to defend the left side than the right one. Thus, gather more mobile units, especially tanks and anti-tank units. Send one of your soldiers to the village and you will be informed about incoming armored units. The first wave will assault the middle flank. The following two waves will attack the forest on the right (where you left you troops previously) (4). Survive the assault and you will be ordered to send all your troops to the village in the west (5). Don't forget to take your artillery with you.

Use the reinforcements to destroy a hostile division that will attack the left flank. You will get to most powerful German tanks that will crush your enemy. Use them to strengthen your position in the village. - Battle of Kursk | German| Campaign - German - Sudden Strike 4 Game Guide

Now the enemy will attack your ally on the left flank (6). Send some of your forces there but wait for heavy reinforcements (7). You will obtain a truck full of soldiers and Panzer IV H. However, the deadliest units are the two Ferdinand tanks and Tiger I heavy tank. Position your destroyers in the middle, due to their high durability. Leave all other troops on the left flank.

Use assault aircrafts and bombers to punish your enemy. Assault aircrafts will often strike the most powerful units from their weakest side. Your artillery and the fortified line will deliver the final blow. - Battle of Kursk | German| Campaign - German - Sudden Strike 4 Game Guide

You will get some aerial reinforcements, and moments later the enemy will throw everything he has and assault the middle of the village (5). The wave will consist of many light and medium tanks, and some KV-1. Conduct an aerial recon in front of the village, and send all your assault aircrafts right under the sandy road (but above the village). Your aircrafts will automatically target the most dangerous units, and deal massive damage. It won't take long for the enemy to strike again. However, the wave will be stretched more this time - simultaneously the center and both flanks will be attacked. The back of the middle group will be covered by a self-propelled gun, so if you don't deal with the tanks fast enough, you may run into serious trouble. Use all the available resources and immediately send your bombers in front of the village.
