What looked like being on the verge of breakthrough before recon and movement turns out to be his main line of resistance. The most direct route towards the rear of Moscow is blocked by 30+CV stacks. The only weakspot is a hex I can attack from 3 directions and to do so I must put almost all of the available offensive strength of Volkhov and Kalinin Fronts into it.
4th Shock is railed in as planned and from the looks of it just in time!
Farther West, I score 4 retreats and one held against his left flank, but if he can hold me at his Rzhev line, this won't matter that much. It will simply take to long to get the results I want from that direction. I must punch through at Rzhev or East of it to force him to give up Moscow. There is good news though, Kalinin is back on the rail net and I'm already taking of depleted divisions for some refit. On the down side, he is really close to his supply lines (green arrow), giving him all the advantages that that entails.
South of Moscow I score some good results with the Bryansk Front, now mostly refitted and ready to cause trouble, with some Western Front divisions helping out.
Overall, a slow turn.
