This will be my first AAR, at least here on Matrix forum.
Marc is playing Soviet side
The ussual stuff
No HQ bombing unless stacked with combat unit
Max 3 air attacks on airfield per turn
No paradrops before Blizzard and no paradrops to break pockets
Only minor. Manstein has asked for one more motorized division and he got it(14.MD).
Grossdeutchland regiment, 255.ID and 267.ID from 2. Panzer group were diverted south to help with the Kovel pocket.
Sorry, but no screens for first 3 turns.
AGN - XXXXI Pz.Korps heading north to take Riga, Manstein crossing Dvina at Dvinsk.
AGC - Standard Brest-Litovsk pocket, 2. and 3. Panzer Group get in contact west of Minsk.
AGS - Standard Lvov pocket + bonus Kovel pocket.
AGN - Soviets are able to reestablish contact with Riga, luckily back in supply is only Riga however it effectively prohibits XXXXI Pz.Korps from any major action this turn.
Manstein with nearly no opposition reached gates of Pskov, attack is planned for next week.
AGC - Soviets have abandoned Minsk. 3. Panzer group have reached Mogilev and upper Dneper, one motorized division was able to establish little bridgehead on the east bank at Sklov.
2. Panzer group reached Mogilev from south and closed encirclement of some Soviet units defending Berezina river line.
AGS - Strong Soviet forces here, STAVKA probably didnt divert any forces to north. Could be nice pocket here but 1. Panzer Group doesnt have the needed strenght so we just headed east to the Dneper.
Decision to not try any major encirclement in previous turn was the best one we have made. We got mud in the Central Soviet zone. Basically the whole front is stuck in mud. Only in Rumanian sector is clear weather.
AGN - Manstein is sitting in front of Pskov and unable to move. Infantry is trying to catch up but it is going slowly.
AGC - Both Panzer groups are out of supply and unable to move. We had also to retreat from our Dneper bridgehead.
AGS - Soviets have managed to isolate two most exposed Panzer divisions. Due to the mud in the central zone is preventing us from attacking east, 1. Panzer group diverted its axis of advance to the south and created small pocket between Dnester and Bug.
