Generally speaking the question "Quantity or quality" is a question of choice. In our game Soviet were seeking forward defense. As a result of this was intensive fight during 41 and 42 and many experienced units with good morale. The other side of medal is heavy losses and many units lost in pockets. The situation was worsened in 42 because I invested nearly all my AP to expensive in 42 infanrty corps and good leaders. But that's not all. During the peak of Orel battle I convert many units, including mech and tanks into static mode willing to receive another AP to create some more corps. You may still see them around Moscow. Summarising, I met with huge infrastructural problems that I was triyng to solve during winter. In fact, I found that I can not advance when and where I want, but only when and where Kamil allow me.
At the present moment as were marked in comments, my army has elite units and unexperienced cannon fodder. I don't have "golden mean" - infantry with CV 3 or 4 eing able to hold line. As result I have to engage my elite forces with secondary objectives and can not offence effectivly. Otherwise, may be its too early yet. As you see I still dont have "second line" army and I amnot sure I will be able to create it. Now I still consentrated on building infatry corps and I build some art. divisions and some infantry brigades. I dont think I ever have 9 mln.
I think I agree, yes morale is a king of this game, but I am not sure that army of 7,5 mln can take Berlin. May be will see, thanks Kamil he play this.
