Second game against Bonners, this time with me as axis. Case blue long with free air setup and no advance in the north.
I start of with some reorganization, Mackensen -> 4pza, von Arnim -> XXXX (4 command 30% combat, why haven't I noted this guy in previous games?), Hoth -> LVII (40% combat means he is wasted in army command), Raus -> XVII, and lots of units transferred from army to corps command.
Overall loses for first turn is 27k for 3.5k, not good but I'm more aiming to encircle units at the moment. Air loses is 70 fighters for 55 which will be rather catastrophic in the long run. I played a fighter card (seem like you get one extra turn of prestige from free setup) but only got 20 extra.
Sevastopol is proceeding as usual, took one hex. Rest of the front at the end of the turn
