Digital Adolf has informed us that the USSR have massed hordes of military units on our border, and we had to act fast, so a DoW has been issued on the USSR!!!
Generals have been told to drive deep, however some units have been told that they are not needed on full strength anymore. Surely some of this must be mere confusion. We are certain however that the situation will grow clearer in a few months...
So, pockets in place, but how people manage to get the MP to take Riga on Turn 1 is beyond me. Atleast now, I think that doing the turn after a hard work week might not be the best option, but it could get interesting I guess.
Neither am I certain as to how many planes I should kill, but I feel ok with what we got.
Since turn 1 (atleast for me) is more a turn of manouvering, we only made 46 attacks this turn, and scored the following;
No holds this time, which is nice, although I had hoped some of the retreats should be routs. Oh well.
USSR : 70.000 troops, 1.767 guns, 499 AFVs, 2.764 AC.
Axis : 3.000 troops, 82 guns, 16 AFVs, 137 AC.
USSR troops destroyed
13 fortified zones, 1 sapper battalion, 1 AA battalion, 3 NKVD border regiments, 1 PVO AA regiment, 1 BM howitzer regiment, 3 corps artillery regiments, 1 howitzer regiment and 1 Rifle Division.
USSR units in pockets
124 units are inside pockets, this does however include HQs/Airfields
Manpower : 0
Vehicles : 250.169
Armaments : 100.000 hey hey!!
Hiwi : 0
Not sure all the pockets will hold, in fact I severly doubt it to be honest.
Find the "re-combine" button to get those two divisions fixed again.
All heavy artillery units are set to 50% TOE, so is the bicycle unit which I was not allowed to disband this turn. AA guns are set to 75%, not sure if I should keep them at 100 or drop them to 50, so went in between...
Well since Gimp and I still do not see eye to eye, I'll keep using Paint, so a few screenshots this time around.
