The infantry start mopping up the pockets that was made on turn 1, and the panzers/mechanized keep pushing. The attacks out of Rumania are a disappointment, but I guess it will be better next turn when deliberate attacks can be made from the east side of the riverline. It also seems the USSR are attempting to make a line far to the west, this I think I like, as the smaller rivers are easier to breach.
I still make too many hasty attacks, I think I need to write "few hasty attacks" on a Post-it and stick it to my screen.
We make 136 attacks, resulting in 2 scouted, 23 held, 59 retreat, 7 rout, 1 shatter and 44 surrenders.
USSR : 369.000 troops, 5.130 guns, 3.029 AFVs and 380 planes.
Axis : 31.000 troops, 245 guns, 140 AFVs and 44 planes.
Lvov, Brest-Litovsk, Vilnius, Minsk and Riga are all captured. Riga was evacuated, as was most of the river line close to the city, so we simply moved in.
8 armored divisions, 4 motorized divisions, 24 rifle divisions, 4 AT artillery regiments, 2 corps artillery regiments, 6 PVO AA regiments, 5 NKVD border regiments and 4 fortified regions.
As in the previous AAR, all numbers are from the "active" pool.
Manpower : 14.204.
Vehicle : 209.819.
Armaments : 90.069.
Hiwi : 5.279.
Plan for next turn
1. Mop up the remaining enemy units that are trapped.
2. Bring up the infantry to assault the enemy positions.
3. Keep encircling enemy units with our panzer/mechanized divisions.
4. Keep pushing east with the Rumanian forces.
5. Keep pushing towards Leningrad with AGN.
