High Command has reported that due to logistics issues (I'm not familiar enough with germany yet) we will most likely not be able to implement Operation RustyHammer.

Start Maps
North

It looks like the russian bear woke up with a hangover when he saw 2.5 of his armies in the center completely trapped and sealed away on the west side of the oskol. It appears he has cut his loses and run. (Which is probably what i should be doing in my game with him as russia..but screw that we fight!)


Center


South
The hills are going to be a tough nut to crack but we have no choice. OKH has told us to get to our objectives and we must obey. It is the prussian way.


Sevastopol
It appears there is a rescure force coming. We need to push hard to get this city and all its defenders.

Casualties at the start of the turn



By the end of the turn we killed many soviets. And it wasn't even the ones hidden away.

It appears sevastopol will fall tomorrow but he will probably be able to escape with all his left over forces to fight again another day.

In the south Rostov has impressive forts along both edges so we've decided for the standard left hook.

Sevastopol has fallen.

We are still contemplating Operation RustyHammer. The advance sub scouts were destroyed but in retaliation we sunk a fleet of russian subs marked by the 'X'. We also sank half a patrol of some torpedo boats. The Soviet force to the farthest right is most likely the transports under cover of cruisers and destroyers. We did not risk a one-sided engagement.

The whole axis fleet is now in sevastopol. We have several divisions that we could pick up and attempt to take the east banks of the kerch. But we are still unsure if we will be able to hold off the soviet fleet long enough to land. Rostov looks like the soviets have pulled significant forces from the caucasus so an invasion might help us in that regard.

Interesting to see how you use your 1 PK. I have allways move them up north in the direction of Lititchank.
How is the supply of your Wiking and 13th panzer ? To you plan to push forward with them the next days ?

Yea i was giving it some thought and i haven't really played many games as germany so it could be a rookie mistake. I thought with 2PzK going through the center 1PzK could provide more push in the center.

And it appears it was a mistake we intercepted a message from Stavka(ara)

it's bad for your 16th and 60 Mot
cut off and hopefully destroyed next turn.


Though it turns out my bombing campaign as annoyed ara's reinforcements a bit. Since you have to be rail connected to a city not just road connected. So no reinforcements to the northern objective for a few turns until he repairs the bridges. Might give us the boost we need to hold onto it.

Stavka is spreading misinformation, after all your mobile units flanks are well protected by the legions of Mussolini.

Wow yea it's bad. :) I guess payback fro my soviet game killing 29MotD. And yes having ities guarding my flank was a terrible idea. Apparently i didn't do enough recon to see swarms of soviets.

I really like your bridge bombing, that is something my opponent has neglected. I feel like if he had bombed some bridges behind my retreat he could have prevented my rails, forced my engineers back to repair so they couldn't blow bridges in his way and trapped a lot of my units.

Also careful leaving your navy in open waters, I think you should keep them in port and only move them out to move ports or scout half thier distance so they can get pack to port at end turn. Also be really careful using them to engage soviet navy, if he has any ships left after an attack in range it could result in complete destruction, it might be possible to gang up on a small unit and get back to port in time becasue naval combat doesn't seem to use much ap if you will win.
