Clearly he has been facing german Sec brigades (the 3 defeats come when he faced Sec divisions instead)

No those were honest victories vs regular German infantry. I don't micromanage my leaders as much as some other players do, and I also love to role play with them, I put a guy in charge because I love his name or his face or his personal history. I have sweet spot for weird looking guys or colorful characters like Semyon Budjoni even though their stats are less than stellar (one front command is reserved for him). Krivoshein, an Armenian who participated in German victory parade in Poland is also a personal favorite, this guy as well, and I don't need to mention the true Soviet stars (the guys with actual good stats).

So in my Soviet armies you can find all sorts of oddities. Stepan Akimov died in aircraft accident unrelated to combat in Oct 41, so his gaming alter ego outlives him in most games.

HAHAHA Hitler's face is priceless!

It's curious. The company which owned the rights of that movie had said (one year ago) that they would be asking Youtube to remove all the videos And then somehow they changed their mind. They let people make parodies.

Yeah, all Armenian generals are my favorites too!

I assumed you are Armenian based on your name. Best Armenian general in game is Ivan (Hovhannes) Bagramyan. He actually has very good stats too.
