As everyone knows, the campaign with MT came to an abrupt and disappointing end. I've continued along with another game started around the same time with a fellow who goes by the name of Gadjan. We are about to start turn 23. Like MT's game, it's server based so I don't have much in the way of screenshots.
To date, in the north Leningrad fell, and the German forces are attempting to link up with the Finns east of the Volkhov. It doesn't seem likely given the current battle lines and only two weeks of snow left, but we will see.
In the center, the fighting is going back and forth to the east of Smolensk, and at Bryansk. Moscow is quite safe from capture now, and the Western Front is supported by a full strength STAVKA army of cavalry as well as an army half full with tank brigades. The cavalry army is already over half way to guards status itself. I've swapped out lower morale units of Western Front and replaced them with units of higher morale. I'm also starting drop a few FZs in place to build the Spring '42 line.
To the south, Kharkov, Stalino, Rostov and the Crimea remain in Soviet hands. I've taken a little bit of a chance by leaving the T-34 factories in Kharkov all this time, but like Moscow it looks safe from capture with the blizzard coming soon.
Gadjan has been very much the anti-MT with little pocketing but a lot of grinding. The Red Army has taken about 3 million losses so far, but I've also been able to grind some German divisions down in turn. The fighting that has gone back and forth created quite a few guards divisions, both rifle and cavalry. I'm now comitting a few tank brigades to start their march towards guards status.
Air forces were pulled back on the first mud turn proper and units reassigned based on where vet experienced units were needed most.
