Monthly fun with numbers time (December)  OOB figures  Axis (not counting Axis minors) Axis overall strength has dropped by 402,650 and effective strength has dropped by 554,747 men. Axis have 3922 less guns total and have 3759 less guns operational. Axis have 119 less tanks total and 99 less tanks operational. (Axis tank strength picked up last turn, reinforcement?) Axis have GAINED 169 aircraft and have 18 MORE aircraft operational. (??) Soviet Soviet overall strength has INCREASED by 145,931 and effective strength has INCREASED by 95,304 men. Soviets have 6903 MORE guns total and have 5735 MORE guns operational. Soviets have 289 MORE tanks total and 96 MORE tanks operational. Soviets have GAINED 685 aircraft and have 419 MORE aircraft operational.  Losses  And now the weird part Axis losses (including minors as there's no way to differentiate) total 265,980 men, with only 28,535 permanent losses (killed and captured) and 237,445 men disabled. Soviet losses total 221,075 men, with 137,975 permanent losses and 83,100 men disabled. Axis losses do not match up to the OOB reduction over the same period. Either this is the losses screen being wonky (probably) or a massive off map of Axis divisions (which I don't recall happening during the winter crisis). Superiority figures (inc. minors) Soviets have a 1.113:1 numerical superiority in manpower. Axis have a 1.079:1 numerical superiority in guns Soviets have 1.592:1 numerical superiority in tanks Soviets have 1.897:1 numerical superiority in aircraft Equipment comparisons (on paper) Germany has 1 gun per 95 men on the front Rumania has 1 gun per 116 men on the front Hungary has 1 gun per 131 men on the front Italy has 1 gun per 151 men on the front Finland has 1 gun per 94 men on the front Slovakia has 1 gun per 202 men on the front Soviet Union has 1 gun per 114 men on the front This really shows just how horribly ill equipped the Italians are for war in the eastern front and conversely how well equipped Finland's troop are (best on the Eastern Front!). The Soviet Union already has a heavy weapon shortage, and this will only worsen as we prioritize the construction of Rifle squads over guns. There are 4 000 more rifle squads on the front then when December began, and this is the consequence of it. Hope you enjoyed this rather large and cumbersome post.
