Kamil -> RE: ZA RODINU! (Kamil vs Mike) (11/27/2012 11:40:01 PM)

T26 centre (German)


My priority for blizzard operations was to hold the centre and and keep the front-line as close to Moscow as possible. High density of troops plus 2 mountain divisions were considered enough guarantee of holding to Vyazma and Bryansk.

It turned out, that Mike assembled here his best troops too. I was really terrified when I saw stacks 20 CV strong plus 2 tank divisions. Wow.

My nerves were further tested by failed deliberate attack on one of them. Surprisingly following hasty attack by same unit was successful.


I did not plan to use mountain divisions to strengthen defensive line, they will be used as a counter-attacking force enabling me extraction of endangered units. I will try to keep them in close distance to each other, to increase their impact and assure their safety.

T26 centre/south (German)


I am very weak here and in few turns time there won't be any mobile units left here to patch up the line, so only option is running west as fast as is possible.

T26 south (German)


Romanian mountain troops will be moved further south a bit more, panzers will launch counter-attacks from Stalino region urban areas. I hope it will be enough to get me through December and January. This is second crucial location for me and I will fight to hold it.

T26 production (German)


Manpower and armament reserves look good. Since T1 majority of artillery is set to 50% TOE (I somehow forgotten to apply changes to rocket units), moreover during November I reduced max TOE of front-line infantry to 75% and only formations left in refit mode are mountain troops.


Obviously I won't be able to rebuild pre-blizzard strength of all my units, but at the moment it looks like it should be enough to recreate decent strike force. Obviously if I get overwhelmed and loose considerable amount of divisions it might not happen.

Pelton -> RE: ZA RODINU! (Kamil vs Mike) (11/28/2012 1:16:46 AM)

Doesn't look good. I don't think you be holding anything other then Minsk if your lucky.

Lol 750,000 in losses for GHC?

1st GHC major mistake was lowering toe to 75% 2nd thinking you can hold anything.

Do not counter attack RUN!!!

Kamil -> RE: ZA RODINU! (Kamil vs Mike) (11/29/2012 9:08:37 PM)

I think there is a lot of charm in January and February turns. To certain extend they become test of determination and nerves.


I really like it. Germans lack strength and Soviets mobility so it is perfect recipe for weird front-line shape and semi-encirlced strong point defences.




Mike29 -> RE: ZA RODINU! (Kamil vs Mike) (11/29/2012 9:29:28 PM)

100% you mean Belgorod-Kharkov hasher. [:)] Nervous situation there, isn't it?




Mike29 -> RE: ZA RODINU! (Kamil vs Mike) (11/29/2012 9:30:48 PM)

Guys who experienced playing 42 for Soviet, do you build light guns and light howitzers brigades in early 42?

Advice from opponent [;)]


In my opinion they are both crap, save AP You want to spend on artillery divisions.

I built them (a dozen) but I'm pretty certain they were totally useless. Suffice to say that they saw no action at all [:D]

I don't think they make a lot of sense when you are on the run (as I was). Now let's take for example Michael's game vs Pelton (a Soviet player not on the run). These bdes (weak or not) might give him an extra punch if he decides to attack the German positions. So in this case they might be useful.

So it depends. Will you be on the run or have the upper hand? That's the whole difference I guess [:)]




randallw -> RE: ZA RODINU! (Kamil vs Mike) (11/30/2012 8:57:17 AM)

Those hasty attacks are a bad idea; Soviet Army in late 1941 or early 1942 not good enough for those attacks to go well.




Mike29 -> RE: ZA RODINU! (Kamil vs Mike) (11/30/2012 2:06:01 PM)

Thanks for advices!




Kamil -> RE: ZA RODINU! (Kamil vs Mike) (11/30/2012 4:53:18 PM)

T29 centre (German)

Situation in crucial areas from my perspective.


Finally January has come so I decide to make a stand. I need to stabilise front for a moment to get opportunity to build-up fortifications.

I plan to achieve it using panzers deployed from winter quarters, withdrawal on flanks, counter-attacking using mountain divisions supported by mobile units and holding Vyazma - as long as I have corridor to city my situation is ok - I care to keep my panzers there with tanks full of petrol.


As soon as crisis is over I will try to move best units back to safety.

T29 south (German)


My forces here are not numerous enough to prevent encirclement of Stalino region. I will delay as long as I can and then retreat west.

T29 Crimea (German)


There is no danger here, but unfortunately Mike's raid prevented me from using Romaninan diggers elsewhere.
