I'm a caucious type so I would be thinking seriously about backing out of that salient if I was Pelton.
A good question, what will Pelton do?
My guess is that he will stay put during mud and then analyze on the first snow turn, what he can do before the blizzard.
1) Encircle Moscow and all the troops there. That would be a disaster for the Soviets, but it doesn't seem likely Pelton will be able to do this.
2) Cut the railroad. Still a possibility, especially as the Soviets do not have a +1 Attack modifier. If he can cut the line, he can spend the next few turns watching the Soviets spending a lot of trucks resupplying the divisions at Moscow, while he himself pulls the panzers back to safety.
3) Pull back his Panzers. If he can not take offensive action, he can start pulling back his panzers without to much risk.
Against me (and a +1 Attack option) he did leave his Panzers at the front outside Voronezh (probably hoping to take the city). When on the first snow turn he realized my defenses were to strong, he started pulling out the Panzers.
My fingers are crossed for you Stelteck. Keep going.
We need only to kick in the door, and the whole rotten structure will come crashing down.
