At the beginning of turn 10 now. I tightened my hold on Kiev and have units moving south along the Dniepr, in order to capture the few bridges down to Dniepropetrovsk.
I'm starting to move panzers and arty away from Kiev to strengthen the central sector, of which I show a screenie
I entered Smolensk but a Soviet tank unit promptly pushed my guys out. No worries as I've already have units moving to the Moscow highway from the north behind the city
The Red airforce attempts sporadic attacks but pose no problem for the Luftwaffe. I activated some Romanian air units to provide assistance in the upcoming assault on Odessa

Watch out those 'few bridges' have some immoble Soviet arty watching over them. I've had to assault from both sides to avoid high losses. Attacking with tanks / mech units is better than the foot dudes because of the lower losses I think.

My guys indeed encountered those fixed arty sites... an unpleasant surprise. They have to be eliminated

We're still making progress but are starting to encounter more structured Soviet opposition.

I'll post more details and data later on... For now here's the animation from turns 7 till 12

Before starting turn 13 I'll post some situation maps.

Let's start off with Armee Gruppe Nord.
The units assigned to clear the Baltic countries did so with only the bare minimum of resources. Riga and Pskov required some effort and Tallinn is put under siege.
But the commander in the northernmost sector reports that he had to deal with a Soviet counter attack. Although he can hold his current positions fairly well he asks for extra troops in order to push towards Narva.
His problem may be solved by the Waffen-SS units coming out off Pskov.
The other cities along the proposed winter stop line are in sight. Luga Novgorod and Staraya Russa will surely be contested but can be taken. Then the AG Nord guys will start to dig in.

Armee Gruppe Mitte will attempt to lure a great amount of Soviet troops in a pocket between
Vyazma and Mozhaysk. Let's wait and see how many units Elmer will move forward.
I think I have enough time before the final push towards Moscow. I know that the Soviets are becoming stronger, but destroying a huge Kessel can pay off.

Here I fear I may get in trouble. The south flank of AG Mitte's advance to Moscow is only thinly screened.
Panzer and Mot troops used to advance to Kiev are starting to make their way to AG Mitte

It's freewheeling in the Ukraine for now.
Odessa is under siege, mainly by Rumanian units. We're racing towards the Dniepr bend, where heavy resistance can be expected at Dniepropetrovsk.

It's nice to see my troops and Moscow on the screen without zooming out too much.
I'm considering some routes of attack once my infantry has caught up... In the north I may have to cross the canal and attack from behind
Note that the idea of a central pocket is still present

Rzhev needs to be taken in order to protect the northern flank of the Moscow spearhead

A bit further to the south, the defense of Bryansk is the toughest I have encountered so far since I invaded. I see opportunities to bypass them though

My plan to take Narva succeeded

Less jolly are the Soviet counter attacks out of Staraya Russa. The road to Pskov is undefended as I 'm still struggling to eliminate a stubborn Soviet Mot Division west of that city

In the Ukraine I had freedom of movement... Being able to cross the lower Dniepr east of Kherson without significant opposition was a pleasant surprise
Seems I'll be able to seal off the Crimean as planned
Dniepropetrovsk and Zaporozhe promise to be a tough contest, and I like to get as far as Melitopol

Let's briefly mention actions on the Finnish front
Here everything seems to be going according to plan, with Viipuri and Petrozavodsk surrounded.

Starting turn 16 the front looks like this. Noteworthy is the lunge towards Moscow

Before taking a look at the main sector, some annoying news from a side show.
The Soviets are taking on the Finns with some bravado

In the Ukraine, Elmer carries out some nuiscance raids... A lone border guard unit is sent on a suicide mission... There's a continuous arrival of Soviet units being spotted on the east bank of the Dniepr

AG Mitte!!
This situation gives me an adrenaline rush.
Moscow is in sight and I don't think I'll ever get a better chance of taking it
The approaches north and south are being secured but I'm gonna have my infantry to perform forced marshes and exposure to paperthin flanks. I wanna conduct a credible assault before the Soviets pour in more units.

I like the picture(s) but those in motion....is there some way you can speed up the motion? It's kinda painful to watch when it's so slow. my $0.02

The animations are set at 250 ... I'll speed them up

My last turn was very useful in disrupting Soviet production

quote:

August 13th, 1941
Axis units capture Nikolayev.
Axis units capture Kherson.
Axis units capture Viipuri.
Axis units capture *ODESSA*.
Axis units capture *BRYANSK*.
German Forces Destroy Industry In Bryansk.
German Forces Destroy Industry In Kalinin.
German Forces Level Odessa Industrial Area.

The positions of advanced Wehrmacht units near Moscow at the start of turn 17
It seems that the Red Army didn't have much time to prepare impressive defenses

Where can I obtain a copy of this modded D21?

I followed the prior AAR between Desert and Larry each day (whew) and I would like to give the modded version a try.

Thanks,

Randy

Positions around Moscow on 19 August 1941
I've observed Soviet units streaming in.
That northern corridor is an extremely risky move.
I'm gonna abandon my plan for a Mozhaysk kessel.. I would waste valuable time if I did attempt that

As stated this is a personal mod due to the fact that D21 is a work in progress and I want to leave the honors to Steve and Rick.

I decided to go for it! Assault Moscow before the Soviets get the chance to move in more reinforcements
Here's a shot of the advance in progress before most of the combat has been set up

Exiting stuff. Not much of a defence left for your opponent, then again I notice a lot of red dots on your counters... and you still have these pesky pockets to clean up. I don't know, if he's able to send in reinforcements fast enough you're done for I fear.

I think you might stall in the suburbs yet, you could have use for one or two infantry corps more to take Moskau. Could you have four transferred inf divs up front in three turns?
