Well, Artillery Divisions have been put to good use near Moscow and what can I say...? A big fiasco Still, I wanted to try.
The truth is their experience is still in the 20s, therefore they are a bunch of lousy novices only good to empty the weekly vodka tanks. This, I should have known.
Er, anyway (aka let's see the glass half full), if Marquo perceives I am making many attacks near Moscow that might force him to pay attention to this area aka do not divert panzer hordes to the area which really matters to me aka winter offensive area. The goal, remember: advance towards the general direction of Kursk.
And and and, the thing is I might more or less succeed! Let's see, this turn he has also withdrawn one hex minimum (as if that was going to save him!). I will push him anyway. And he is apparently keeping his armored hordes elsewhere, namely Moscow area and north of the Caucasus. And this is of course important as they would be an excellent deterrent aka I should be forced to be much more cautious. So I might gain let's say 2 hexes per turn. In 3 months I might have advanced let's say 24 hexes and thus get near Kursk. In theory...
Hmm, this is good news for me. And perhaps he is throwing overboard his excellent (and my horrible ) summer campaign. Spring will tell.
