Bad goes to worse. There is not other way to describe this turn. In fact it turns so bad that a new defensive doctrine has to be used. It is also clear that Leningrad will fall sooner rather than later. Our airforce continues to be a non-factor. When ordered to bomb a unit, they send in the planes 1 by 1, doing no damage or being shot down.
Due to the threat to Leningrad, all our rail capacity this turn is used to extract factories from here. All that remains are the HI factories, some BT factories and a few KV1 factories. If the rail network is open next turn, the last of the industry here will be extracted, but that might be hoping for too much, we will see.
Some new units arrive in the east, but we cannot get them west this turn due to the heavy use of our rails by the leningrad factories.
All over the place...
The north is more or less gone, and it now seems very likely that the USSR will not survive this ordeal. King Winter is still far away, and we are being forced back on almost every front.
Our 1CV units have nothing to say against the excellent defensive values of the Wehrmacht, so when they pierce a line we are unable to turn them back.
The defense around Leningrad is crumbling away, and I doubt it will stand for long. As you can see, the line defense is no longer an option, so a delaying defense is all we can do for now. We need more mountains, marshes and big rivers!
