My troops swear they saw a kitchen sink thrown at them this turn.
Attacks all along the line, and a serious breakthrough. The upside however is that our corps sized units now have a better CV value than alot of those units trying to hold the Axis flanks. Unless his troops are capable of digging in really fast, things could get nasty for them the next few turns. Due to the fact that the Axis are attacking, their troops are often caught out in the open, and we launch 16 attacks this turn, scoring 7 held and 9 retreats. I guess the good thing about those held results are that our adjusted CV was higher than 1:1, so it seems our adjustments are not as severe as before.
Teh Axis launched 5 partisan attacks, all resulting in retreats. Aside this, they launched no less than 74 attacks, scoring 9 held, 47 retreats, 21 routs and 2 shatter. I really do not like to see entire divisions shatter like that, but not much I can do about it.
Losses at the end of the turn are 52.000 Axis troops to our 176.000, so the Axis still score a 3:1 here.
The only fresh unit is yet another airfield. Something I really do not need anymore as I have spare room on those I allready have. The need for mobile troops made, me in a moment of weakness, to form three new armoured corps this turn.
On the downside, we lost two rifle divisions and one artillery regiment this turn. Espesially the artillery regiment was an unnecessary loss.
Despite these losses, we recorded a net strength increase of 74.000 troops this turn.
Can I find the troops to halt the enemy breakthrough?
Also, I am lacking some info about aerial attacks it seems, so I am off to read in the manual again.
