Soviet Evacuations - 5/20/2012 3:04:07 AM

I think I know the answer to this, but just wanted to get the community's input - is there any advantage to evacuating more than 1 of a weapons (i.e. tanks, planes, etc.) factory? I have a vague recollection that if you can evacuate more you may be able to produce more at the end of the day, but when you are under heavy pressure is there really any valid reason to evac more than 1 of a weapons factory?

Input appreciated...

I will do that if I am under really heavy pressure. Otherwise it depends on the type of item being produced. I try to save all veichle production and a majority of tank production. Aircraft i try for half but will settle for less.

Even though they will eventually grow back, the more you get out the more production you will get the sooner.

Look at the dates they come on line too.

For example, I only move two of the IL-10 factories (two locatons of 23 each) as they don't start until 1945.

They'll be back to 23 each long before then.

Isn't vehicle production a "unit" exercise like arm points? I just moved half of the vehicle points out of a city, and the other half still seem to be there.

Well, still, aircraft starting to produce in 1945 doesn't seem like the first priority in 1941...

@76mm Yes you are right, veichle is same as ARM. What I meant is I try to bring all of them out, as trucks will be a limiting factor in driving the Germans back in 42 and 43.

They are just like any other factory, so they do.

I was about to post this same question...so I take it the conclusion of the group is that evacuating more than 1 is nice if you have the luxury, but not something to agonize over? In other words, if you are stretched and every +1 you evacuate over the minimum limits your ability to evac armament points, you do the minimum?

And yes, vehicles are like armaments and like Tarhunnas I always try to get all of them out given the late war truck shortage.

Also - is there a post on the forum somewhere about factories you definitely should not waste time/rail evaccing? I know BA-10s and MiG-3s are not necessary, and that Heavy Industry should only go to the extent you have a major rail surplus...anything else?

I'm not sure it I'd put it like that... Personally, for anything worth evacuating, I try to evacuate at least 50%, if you only evac 1 unit, it might not reach full production for a long long time. Unless I'd already lost lots of arm points, I'd sacrifice a few of those to get out more tank factory units.

While getting out 1 unit is far better than getting out nothing, I would try very hard to get out more than that (here I'm especially talking about the tank factories).

Saratov: Lagg 3 (shut down 7/42)

+1. And many factories are much cheaper in terms of rail capacity than ARM.

I thought that the T70 factories upgraded to T34 or SU76 & with some of those factories (i.e. Gorky) if they need to be evacuated then you are in serious trouble

If the enemy gets to Gorky in 1941, you are indeed in serious trouble!

The T-40 --->T-60--->SU-76---> SU-76M.

The T-50--->T-34 M1942---->T-34/85 M1944.

The T-70 factories don't upgrade.

I sense another list coming...:)
