Has anyone else noticed this guy?

Many games ago while filtering leaders by qualities in the CR, I was exited to find a new 9 morale Russian general. Deflation followed quickly, however, as I noted his other spectacularly bad attributes. I declined to offer him a command.

Subsequently, it occured that his abnormally high morale might compensate for other deficiencies and in my current game, I gave him a cavalry corps (mech 2) with Southern Front. His first attack was a success. What might he achieve with infantry (inf 3)? With a division under his wing another victory followed and he was promoted.

After eventual defeat at Odessa and a rest, I thought I'd try him with an an army on a not too important sector. Now a general-leytenant he was cheap to assign. With very limited resources, he's actually done quite well. As of the end of December 1941, his tally is 8 victories and 13 defeats.

I'm pleased I took the risk of using him and am curious to see how his 'career' develops. Imagine what he could achieve with an initiative rating of..... 4?

Muaha ha ha

Why have you posted a picture of Mike Myers?

He is quite charming. Maybe best recruiting special forces than in the front lines.

Morale rating should have been a 5; I submitted a request for it to be changed.

No surprises there and in my future games, off to the swamp of the unused he will go. Interesting though, for me and anyone else that might pay too much attention to mech/inf ratings. A high morale factor will apply to both types and offset other combat disadvantages as well as rallying broken units.
