There is the bug we know with the Panther.

There is another bug than I noted by studying triggers for the Primary Objective : "Never lose Stalino or Krasnograd"

We are going to take the example of stalino.
If you lose Stalino at any time (trigger Event = Capture VP Event) the objective is marked "Failed" but the game continue :

You asks you what that's for to continue to fight anyway you be going to lose at the end, just for the honor ?
No, all is not lost, there is a hope.
The trigger which confirms the objective at the end of the scenario will always be active (normally, it should have been deactivated if we lost the objective before) :

This is the same situation as we just dealt with Erik's Battleaxe scenario in Afrika Korps. As we discussed over there, either the mission should say "Be in control of Stalino and Krasnograd at scenario's end," which is the way it is set up as shown above, or the triggers should include a provision for failing the objective and shutting off the victory trigger as shown below. The key word, of course, is "Never" and these triggers enforce that even if Stalino and Krasnograd are both taken back in the end:
