Overall
Yup, got it correctly, the USSR did indeed lash out from Crimea. Nothing major, and I have moved units there to keep them at bay, but it is a concern, as those units would have been of better use elsewhere...Also a slight concern that the USSR forces 2 more retreats in my main line, destroying the forts there. Not good at all. Am now forced to deploy panzers as makeshift line-boosters until the forts have been rebuilt. A waste of tanks, but it needs to be done atm.
14 USSR attacks resulted in 8 helds, 5 retreats and 1 rout, while our 14 attacks gave 4 helds, 9 retreats and 1 rout.

Losses
USSR : ??.000 troops, ??? guns, ?? AFVs, ??? AC.
Axis : 29.000 troops, 247 guns, 33 AFVs, 14 AC.

German units disbanded
2 Luftwaffe Field Divisions.

Partisans
We took care of 7 out of the 9 that started on the map.

Never had any luck with them, and although the MP pool says 100k, that is not a "real" number as I have several understrength units.

Overall
It is now all about firefighting, and I am losing . I push one USSR attack back one turn, and two others take its place the next. Imo, this is the fun part of the Axis defensive campaign, as you still have some punches to deal out. Unfortunately, although we outdo the USSR in terms of attack successes, casualties are not proportionate since we are now fighting USSR Rifle Corps, and not divisions. Nevertheless, we will keep attacking. Virtual Adolf has promised us some new wonderweapons though (If only I could import my Panzer Corps formations)!
18 attacks by the USSR resulted in 9 helds, 1 scouted and 8 retreats. Our 16 attacks ended with 3 helds, 10 retreats and 3 routs this turn.

Losses
USSR : 60.000 troops, 883 guns, 69 AFVs, 283 AC.
Axis : 40.000 troops, 513 guns, 69 AFVs, 75 AC.

German units disbanded
None.

Partisans
11 of these buggers started on the map, only 1 remain.

USSR reserve activations
1. Have not seen a lot of these lately, probably because the USSR units are busy attacking, and hence do not have a lot of MP remaining.

Overall
The USSR mainly attacks out of Crimea, and pushes the Rumanians back. Well, that is why I placed the Rumanians in the front, to soak up USSR MPs, so their retreats is not really a major concern.
15 USSR attacks resulted in 5 helds and 10 retreats, while our 8 attacks gave 2 helds and 6 retreats.

Losses
USSR : 47.000 troops, 603 guns, 165 AFVs, 179 AC.
Axis : 37.000 troops, 432 guns, 37 AFVs, 47 AC.

Overall
More USSR attacks from the Crimea, and we chose our attacks along the frontline. The units taking a beating in the south is the Rumanians, while I keep the Germans in the rear. They counterattack, and the Rumanians move into the reoccupied hex to soak up the USSR attacks once more.
14 USSR attacks gave a result of 5 helds, 6 retreats and 3 routs, while our 10 attacks gave 2 helds, 7 retreats and 1 rout.

Nope, still using them, and tbh I am now getting to the point where I have one season worth of reinforcements in the manpower and armaments pool, so I do not see the need to do so atm. My main concern is that Sean knows perfectly well what he is doing, and that is to reduce my forts one by one so that he does not have to face them across a river after the mud is gone.
I think it will be a hectic -43, followed by a rapid decline in -44.

More of the same, the USSR make some attacks out of Crimea, and target some of my forts elsewhere. I am now waiting for mud to arrive, as that will give us a few turns of peace.
17 USSR attacks this turn, with the result of 6 helds, 9 retreats and 2 routs. We only performed 5 attacks, and scored 1 held and 4 retreats.

43 to 45 is about managing the attrition war with the axis.
you can afford to lose troops as long as you keep the soviet from advancing towards berlin. You can fight in forts while the soviets have to go out in the open to take ground. The panzers can counterattack then go back in the rear in reserve mode.

In theory, yes, however that is really not how it turns out in my experience. Forts are usually done after 3 turns at the most, and come -44 the panzers cannot really do a lot. They can push some, but compared to the USSR corps formations, they are too weak to really do anything decisive.

A very quiet turn, where all USSR attacks came out of Kerch, and my swearing is also aimed at Kerch, as the one held result I got was...hmmm....silly/idiotic/WTF/I hate dice throws. 2:1 in men and guns, 150 tanks vs none. 3:1 pre battle CV, 1.4:1 end result. These dice throws are killing me. Well, not me, but my virtual men atleast...
Anyway, 7 USSR attacks gave 1 held, 3 retreats and 3 routs (Rumanians). Our whopping 2 attacks gave 1 held and 1 retreat. Yeah, the Axis are really on a roll now

It is somewhat misleading. The problem is the low rate at which German units fill up at the front. If all my infantry divisions were to go up to 100% actual TOE, I am pretty sure the pool would be dry.
But I am creating a buffer for the upcoming USSR onslaught, and that atleast it something I suppose

Apart from the usual attacks from the Crimea, the USSR also attacks on a broad front in the centre, they trap two divisions, but as I expected the attacks to come, I already had panzers in place, so the units were freed. The entire frontline is slowly fracturing now.

164 Tigers in the pool... if they were all at the front. I don't think that production should be changeable, as this would ridicule the actual troubles encountered by the Germans over the years. But I do think that for Panzer Divisions one should be able to change the tank type.

With some decent weather, we lash out to show the USSR that given the chance we will attack. Losses report is FUBAR as usual though...
1 USSR attack resulted in a held, while our 30 attacks gave 4 helds, 24 retreats and 1 rout. Now, the rout result is not as good as you might think, as it is merely a statement of the amount of USSR units on the map. The routed units did so because they had no retreat path...

Losses
USSR : 36.000 troops (simple math showed 42k+attrition though...), 915 guns, 13 AFVs, 450 AC.

looking back over your last set of posts it does seem as if you have a decent manpower reserve.

Does that mean you can absorb the Soviet '43 offensive by giving ground rather than facing a major collapse when you simply run out of reinforcements/replacements ... or is that too optimistic a reading of your situation?
