ouch ouch ouch
i think it's a matter of days until the initiative changes over to the soviets.
very impressive playing Herr Krupp!
Yes it hurts him, but i am no where near getting on equal troop numbers for a long time i think I will be force to run at least another week or two in the north, I am trying to get a critical mass of troops going or starting, at the south and working north. I just want to stop breakouts to the south because if he can stretch out my front i will be in trouble.
What will be the effect on the Romanians? you have wiped out a lot of them. Will they stop sending replacements? can it also influence the reinforcement list?
Im not really sure, I would think. with the huge losses they have taken by now i think 4-5 divisions worth killed plus a headquarters, that their spirit must be low. If i remember right this means they wont get replacements, but i have no idea what the spirit level is. However looking at the reinforcements menu he has been getting large numbers of Romanian and minor ally divisions. So there are actually alot more of them despite what I have killed. This is also why his army numbers haven't dropped much, I think I have killed now 1/4 of the total German army ~1/4 of all german artillery, 1/3 all german mobile troops and 1/2 his tank force. But he has gotten alot of Romanian reinforcements so his total army is only down by 1/7 or so while mine is still down right near breaking point. But the good news is he really will have a tough time chasing me or encircling or breaking through without all those mobile units, and the minors seem pretty easy to defeat so far. So in reality his army is much weaker than the numbers show.
But the better news is according to the reinforcement schedule he will not be getting any more reinforcements for along while, while I will get a steady stream of a division or two every turn. I also now have a large amount of VP's 24 I think? I could trade in 10 of them for reinforcements, but when I think about it, I would rather have the VP's, because I have no objectives now, and I have no way of knowing If I can hold my next objective or not, so i will have to wait for stavka to issue orders before I cash those. Until then i will run where I am outnumbered, defend where I get good terrain or attack where i can get 1 to 2 losses.
