In the series of screenshots above, I noticed a pocket of Volkhov Front mobile units behind a line of Northwest Front infantry. Are those there as reserves, and, if so, does the chain of command issue hurt reserve activation?
Hmm, yes, I see the units you are talking about. If they had to fight, yes, there would be command penalties. Anyway, er, this "alcoholic mob" (as I had accurately described them), is not supposed to see any fight
Cavarly divisions and tank brigades that is. I had pulled them back in spring 42 IIRC. I was supposed to form cavalry and tank corps with them... But, I did not have APs left: I had to rebuild the Red Army. And now I am trying to upgrade to the v 2.0.
When I sent them there they were supposed to attract Marquo's attention, which I doubt they did by the way But in any case they would be doing something "useful", instead of sitting idle.
In the end it's the attack up north against the Finns that has finally attracted Marquo's hordes, so fair enough. And by the way, when I started trashing them Finns I was not thinking about that at all. I simply er, wanted to have a good laugh, that's all
In any case, sooner or later I will merge these alcoholic bast*rds and thus form some more cavarly and tank corps. On the next months I guess.
