Oh yeah........I haven't shown you the front lines yet. Well, here's the Axis turn 3 moves:

There's no industry in Minsk anymore so you're probably wondering why I'm still holding it. I have a single Rifle Division in the city, plus
an HQ for the division and I'm delaying two full Axis divisions from taking their place at the front lines. So far. I could probably make an
attempt to run for it but when I was playing FITE using TOAW the Soviet player made a point of holding onto the cities as long as
possible. It's just the principle of the thing for me. Part of the same reason I'm still holding onto Riga although that one has more the
reason to delay the Axis rail if possible.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/24/2011 4:46:52 AM)

Here's Riga now. I'm holding onto it by my fingernails but there's been no Axis rail repair dude show up yet......maybe he's taking a
different route to get to Leningrad. Time to do some recon by cursor to find the Axis rail that's been repaired and where it's not.

Here's the result of the recon by cursor. The pop-up shows the % damage to the rail in the hex so you can tell what's been recently
repaired, what's still damaged, and by the line of damage 1 hexes leading up to it, I'd say that anonymous Axis unit is probably one of
the FDB units. And it's headed for Riga.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/24/2011 5:37:19 AM)

There were some reinforcements that showed up around Leningrad so I thought I'd give them to the 8th Army and form a sort of front
line along the Luga River. Some of the divisions are depleted and are only shells. And the Axis units are getting closer and closer.
Will the divisions fill out in time? We'll see.

That Russian base in Finland, Hanko??...The units are frozen but the support units attached to the forts are not so get them out...

If you are lucky to break a pocket you may not get your units out but check to see if SUs can be assigned to Stavka...

I started against the AI using beta 40, giving the Germans an extra 10 points across the board...Germans seem to be moving quicker but HQs still unprotected and one of my units has crossed the Polish border heading for Warsaw...see how far it gets...




larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/24/2011 6:27:27 AM)

Of all the planes I have only 100 groups of them are in the NR.....mostly bombers that I'm holding back.

I've already done that. But thanks for the thought. Keep those good ideas coming.

Cool. Keep us posted will you?




larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/24/2011 6:56:53 AM)

These are the moves performed in the Soviet half of turn 3: I pulled back in some places and stood firm in some others.

I thought I'd better evacuate some stuff from Odessa before it gets sacked.

And then I moved all the Armament points out of Leningrad.

randallw -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/24/2011 9:12:54 AM)

Going back to turn 1....if you want to evacuate as many units through Ventspilis as possible the fort unit should be disbanded ( it counts against the 3 stack limit ).

Yeah, I disbanded that dude kinda early. But keep those great ideas coming. And thanks for posting.




larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/24/2011 10:56:38 PM)

I moved the 27th Army to the Narva bottleneck. So far the 27th Army is the only thing protecting the north route to Leningrad. I've got
8th Army along the Luga river so the next thing to check is the right hook the Axis might try. The AI might try a right hook? We'll see.
I didn't have room to show the face of the 27th Army leader but you can see his stats.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/24/2011 11:07:38 PM)

I plugged a gap temporarily with the 22nd Rifle Corps which I just formed from reinforcements from STAVKA.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/24/2011 11:20:56 PM)

The 1st Mechanized div needs some help as it's the only thing protecting the entrance to the Valdai Hills area. I need to rail some
people into this area to take up some of the slack.

The Western Front commander got himself executed for something or other.

Of all the Armaments Industry cities, these are the most important. Unfortunately, most of them are Axis objectives.

Here's what the Smolensk area looks like now. Just a series of screens to slow down the Nazis.
I'm going to have to rail some more people into this area before I'll be able to hold it. In other
words I'm still in pull-back-slow mode so far. Except for in the south. And up around Leningrad.
There it's going better for the Soviets. Somewhat. I'm getting creamed in the middle in other words.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/25/2011 12:42:28 AM)

I decided to evacuate the Armaments and Heavy Industry in Gomel before it gets sacked.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/25/2011 12:45:51 AM)

I had enough rail cap to move the armament point out of V-town near Leningrad ( the pink HQ unit ).

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/25/2011 12:48:32 AM)

I used the rest of the rail cap to get the Vehicles and T-50's out of Leningrad.

I'm trying to construct a layered defense with multiple lines to slow down the progress of the Axis. I think it's working so far. The
advance has seemed to slow down a lot lately. This is the moves for turn 4 by the Soviets:

I'm just doing some end-of-turn checks before I hit the "end turn" button and I found out that some of my Front HQ's are getting SU's
and shouldn't. Although the back-water Front HQ's have a fair leader in some cases I'm not sure I can get much utility out of such an
HQ. It's MP is zero and can't really be there to supply the SU's to it's subordinates so I'm thinking it shouldn't have any SU's at all. And
if it can't have any SU's what good is it to me?

Here's the Odessa area. I have more confidence in this area than I used to have. Maybe they can stand up and fight back here. We'll
see.
