Another quiet turn. We tried something different with our airforce this turn, in that we targeted the BF109 airfields instead of the bomber airfields. I do not think I will do that again. Also it seems that adding more fighters to the attack only increases my losses, so it seems better to fly with a 1:1 ratio between fighters and bombers than a 2 or 3:1. Bomber losses are the same no matter which setup I chose, but the more fighters, the more fighters I lose.
No attacks by us, and the Axis only attacked two partisan units causingthem both to retreat. Losses are reported at 2.000 Axis to our 58.000, so guess that is another turn where something is askew with the losses screen.
Good thing is that our fuel is back up to 9526 this turn, the numbers looked scary, but I also noted that all refinery are working at 100%, and that we do in fact have excess oil, so not much I can do to bolster that number it seems.
We create 3 armoured corps this turn, increasing the grand total to twelve. No units arrive, nor do we create anyone this turn. 199.000 men arrive, but the casualties of 58.000 leaves us with a net gain of 141.000 troops this turn.
I also took a look at what our units are short on, and the list is long. Support, light flak, AT guns, mortars, light mortars, machineguns, infantry-AT, rifle squads, smg squads, engineer squads, artillery, aamg, sp flak are those usually lacking in our units. Well, we have quite a lot of those in stock, it just seems we are not able to get them to our units fast enough.
The only thing I am lacking, is for my armoured corps, and that is the scout vehicles, this is most likely due to the somewhat low ammounts of factories we were able to evacuate, I only hope they will expand as I was told.
Well, to be honest it does not really matter anyway as even with a 100% TOE our units hardly shows higher CV values than 2 (in good weather conditions, in mud they are almost all at 1). That is why I will order some brigades to cover the front lines, since these are low on everything anyway. This is due to only my corps and divisions being set to refit, while my brigades are left on ready.
I might have overdone the creation of armoured brigades it seems. I still have 18 stacks to convert to armoured corps, or 6 turns worth of CPs.
