Back to the game....
M60, why do you not have units on the hills west of Saratov? Or any units in that area whatsoever?
Can't see the whole front, but looks like Western and Bryansk fronts are stacked 5 units-deep, 2 up front, 3 in the rear. Are you expecting an attack in this sector? I think Pelton is all-in where he is at. Why are you keeping units up there? I would bet the collective farm that sector is safe, and you can go 2-deep, freeing up hordes of Rifle units where you really need them.
....because you are choosing NOT to defend the very places Pelton is attacking. He is presenting you an opportunity here by really overextending, but you are not in a position to take advantage of it. In fact, you are at risk of have a catastrophic pocket, because you have lots of mobile units stuck near Borisogobelsk, and nothing to the east of there, where Pelton is attacking you. Unless you count those Mech Bdes as Mobile units, but those are just nicer Tank Bdes.
Anyway, I bet you have 350 divisions. And you are defending the Panzer swarm with about 10 of them right now.
Saratov is important but not critical part of the front at this time.
Way back when the Pelton's attacks in the Ivanovo sector came to an end, there were elements of Leningrad, Northwest, Kalinin, Western and Bryansk Fronts along with STAVKA armies all bunched up there. Quite a number of turns later, the Bryansk and Western Fronts have managed to work their way south while maintaining the current front lines. The goal is to have the same area of the Ivanovo sector under the control of Northwest and Kalinin Fronts only. This does take time to do.
No doubt Pelton sees what you do, the chance to land the fatal blow to the Red Army.
But along the Medveditsa River, a tributary of the Don, this man has a date with destiny at the quiet town of Krasny Yar.
