Since I cannot seem to find "an idiots approach to Gimp", I will have to make alot of screenshots instead of one large one.
More manouvering through empty terrain, but atleast the enemy units in the rear are finally all gone. That took way too long. Next turn we MUST cross the rivers. This should be doable, but we are way behind schedule. No more than 40 attacks are made, resulting in 1 scouted (darned Fins!), 4 held (seriously Mannerhiem?!), 23 retreat, 7 rout, 1 shatter and 4 surrender.
USSR : 51.000 troops, 812 guns, 319 AFVs, 89 planes.
Axis : 22.000 troops, 87 guns, 117 AFVs, 48 planes.
Both sides captured Viborg this turn. Atleast now it is firmly in our hands.
We destroyed 1 rifle division, 2 mountain divisions, 1 NKVD border regiment and 1 fortified region this turn.
Manpower : 28.645.
Vehicle : 182.963.
Armaments : 75.295.
Hiwi : 50.145.
Lack of speed. This MIGHT turn into an advantage of I can make use of it, but I doubt it.
I suffer heavily in attempts to target USSR airfields, so I am not making alot of these at the moment.
Oloren pointed out that I have killed about 25 more units at turn 5 than he did but that I had taken less ground. He was of the oppinion (spelling???) that my approach was better, but I cannot agree as the USSR can always build new units, they cannot however increase their manpower when they lose cities. Also, lack of speed means more time for the USSR to evacuate factories. That is going to come back and bite me for sure.
