Yeah, but crunch time is coming. Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhye take several turns to evacuate and you are knocking at the door. I'm not sure he can get the stuff out of there in time, and there's a lot of it.
I wish that was the case, but Dnepropetrovsk is empty and Zaporozhye only has some HI left. Bryansk and Ordzhonikidzegrad are full and within reach next turn, but he will be able to evacuate both those and Zaporozhye I think. No, I don't see any easy pickings the next few turns unfortunately.
I cannot use HQ buildup (20-25) MP from railhead, but that is not the real limitation, a HQ buildup is wasted if there is no infantry to create a hole. So, no sudden breakthroughs that can snatch a city or two either, at least not for a couple of turns.
Leningrad is so well fortified I am not sure I will be able to take it, or at least it will take lots of time. The rest of the front, I will just have to close up on his line with the infantry and hope I can do a buildup and blast a hole for some pockets and catch some industry around turn 9 or 10. Not trying to sound gloomy here, but Q-Balls defense is working really well, and I can't see anything I could have done much differently that would have changed things.
Edit: This shot is from a mid turn save, I did not leave that HQ like that (I hope ).
