I did a 25-turn '41 test and the Germans were happy with just pushing the Soviets back (getting a lot of routs, but no encirclements). The AI knows how to maintain a front-line, but I'm afraid proper encirclements are out of it's reach (except when terrain and forts will help to funnel advances in proper direction).
AI is capable of pocketing but it needs "percentage boost" in order to be bold and function properly (as told here numerous times by Joel and me)!
