I need to remember to next turn give the most experienced fighter pilots the latest model aircraft. That way I can maximize the chances
of getting more kills.

I did a recon by cursor and found the Axis rail near Riga to be this:

20,000 trucks were mobilized and I got some from Lend Lease so the number of trucks finally surpasses the need for them. Whoot!

I looked at a sort of the morale of the air groups and moved the lowest of the morale dudes to the NR.

I got a look at the refit / reserve status of the units and I've found that about 60% of the force is in refit.

I did a bunch of bombing of units and got a lot of good hits. I decided to rail some stuff out of W. Moscow just for the heck of it.

Oh, yeah.......I forgot to mention that I have a unit creeping up on Warsaw and the 30 manpower points there.

Those guys still in the backfield........they're going crazy tearing up all kinds of Axis rail. Wonder how far they will get going west?

Ok. Game over, I won. My guy walked into Warsaw and the Axis sued for peace. Nah, I'm kidding. We're still at war.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/26/2011 12:47:23 AM)

I did a little recon and found most of my guys are surrounded. D'oh. Maybe that guy in Warsaw can keep going west.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/26/2011 1:22:11 AM)

I spent about 40 AP's making sure that the most experienced fighter pilots had the latest model of fighter: LAGG-3, or Yak-1, or Mig-3
in that order. Next time I get a bunch of AP's or I have some left over for some reason (?) I can make sure the experienced bomber
pilots have the IL-4's.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/26/2011 1:26:52 AM)

I have reason to believe I should put all the TB-3's back on 'auto' for upgrade flag because I just happened to be scopping out the
TB-3 and noticed that the upgrade to PE-8's is due in May of '40 and it's already July of '41 so I'm guessing that it's going to
upgrade automatically and without my having to pay 1 AP each for them. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Hi Larry.
I have followed a lot of your AAR's and have appreciated the work you have put into them.
I also understand you are working hard to improve your play as a Soviet Player.
Playing the Axis AI will not get you very far towards that goal as your occupation of Warsaw attests.
I recently completed a Fall Blau game vs the AI as Soviet and was somewhat stunned at the moves the AI makes or does not make in that one.




larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/26/2011 1:37:40 AM)

Production of the PE-8 stops in Dec. of '41 so that means when I changed the upgrade flag to Manual for all planes I should have left
the TB-3 as 'auto'. Well live and learn.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/26/2011 1:49:09 AM)

Update on Warsaw. I clicked on the city name while in normal move mode and lo and behold it's got some 29 manpower. Too bad it's
not connected to the Soviet grid. Also, the manpower is damaged. I'm thinking the Axis will damage it some more fighting to get it back
if I just sit here. I'm tempted to just sit here and let them damage it some more.

Did the AI ever create any human-like moves like create pockets? Details. And thanks for your post dude.

Here's the Soviet moves. The front line only moved in a few spots.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/26/2011 3:10:06 AM)

I decided to move everything out of N-town since it's on the front lines now.

I predicted that TB-3's would upgrade but it looks like the DB-3's have instead. Unless I'm confused.

larryfulkerson -> RE: 1.05.42 Axis AI vs fulkerson (11/26/2011 4:03:02 AM)

Here's how many of the different kinds of I-153 there are. I'd like to swap out these I-153's for Mig-3's but I want to wait until after I've
done a tour of the front lines to see who needs to be organized or who needs another SU etc. Left over AP's will be used for swapping
planes later.
