Sure the war against Austria and Turkey will strengthen France. But remember that France is last in VP, has used her two levée en masse and is reduced to home nation + Flanders with Baden as a free state. In two years, France as rebuild her corps and has more than one leader but is not yet an invincible opponent. On the other side, Austria is leading the game in VP and PP; has all her corps on map since a long time and is just filling home nation with full strength garrisons; and control all of Italy except Naples/Sicily with the Kingdom of Italy created and control half of the German nations. Last Austria is allied with Prussia and Turkey making life of Russia difficult. Only good point is Charles not yet available.
GB as Russia ally is probably enjoying taking PP over Turkey, while Spain is a Russian UMP this year ... after a year of control by Austria.
Lastly, your comment about Austria were straight to the point, and a good hindsight as the next months were already played. Unfortunately AAustria followed those little late.
Back to the AAR :
Austria began it's January 1795 turn by counterattacking with Mack and four corps the four Russian corps lead by Fersen besieging the East Galicia Capital. The battle took part in the forest area, while the starving garrison received order not to exit the city. Fersen knowing he had a tactical disadvantage and that his army has more militia than Austrian one, took some risk and place the four corps he had in a cordon stance.
Luck reward him for a time cause Mack ordered on the other side an Echelon attack. Whatever, the -1 on Russian die (tactical mod) and the +1 on Austrian die for cavalry superiority see both side finish unbroken the first day of combat, with nearly equal loses in men.
It was then that luck left poor Fersen, as he was the last casualty of his side when ordering the retreat toward West Galicia capital during the night. Doctors are predicting a two months convalescence.
February started by GB disembarking a corp in each of Cyrenaica and Tripolitain and later breaking trough the little garrison to conquer the two capitals.
Russia regroup and counterattacked the exposed force of Mack that just rebuild there loses by incorporating most of the city garrison. She move eight corps and Suvarov in the wood area while the three last corps in the area (one infantry (but what infantry...), one cavalry and a last just created from militia of Brest-Litovsk) move to the west of west Galicia keeping the newly depot just left by the last able Russian leader.
This time it was Mack that took some risk counterattacking against the Russian probe. But now Austria with the tactical inferiority and no more cavalry superiority saw here casualties growth against a opponent slightly helped by luck (Austria rolled 5, 3 and 1 with table becoming more and more lethal while Russia rolled 1, 5 and 5 with the same increase on the table). At the end of the day, both side left the battlefield broken, Suvarov going back from where he came still wondering how he forgot to take the guard corps with him in this battle and leaving 1000 cossacks and 5000 militia dead on the battlefield while Mack disband a corps at the end of the day losing more than 10 000 trained soldiers and had count on the sacrifice of 2000 guard grenadiers to save the day.
To finish, the heroic 6 000 men of the 1st Russian corps breached the Austrian wall and killed the 2 000 defenders of C...Witz.
So the bloodbath had continued, at the joy of Russia knowing than in the current strategical state, it was intolerable for Austria. Austria licking her wound retreated in the Hungarian mountains, leaving alone the 16 factors without a leader build around the Russian guard in the forest of West Galicia.
Turkish corps in the meantime walked back from where they came, while cossacks left Turkey.
March saw like the last month, intense diplomacy, but with few result to French request on Prussia or Turkish hopes to surrender conditionally to GB.
Russian troops took control of capital of East Galicia when after breaching the walls, the 2 000 defenders surrendered. Suvarov move to the step of Hungary while the returning Fersen missed the siege of the last East Galicia city.
Austrian Move still to be complete.
