From: STAVKA

To: All Front Commanders

Orders:
The invading German forces have displayed unimaginable speed in their advance. We must therefore postpone our plans for attack and focus on defending our country first and foremost.

To this end, the following actions should be taken:

Commander of North and Northwestern fronts:
The Valdai hills are the key to the defence of Leningrad. Your defensive efforts should focus on holding the Germans at the foot of these hills, and make them pay dearly for any advance in this area. 24th and 22nd Armies are put at your disposal along with 7th Mechanized Corps.

Prepare to defend the Valdai hills, and make sure the approaches to Leningrad is garrisoned properly.

Commander of Western Front:
Prepare to defend Moscow. This is the most, and only objective for the forces under your command. You are given command of 20th army (minus 7th Mechanized Corps), 16th Army, 20th Rifle Corps, 63rd Rifle Corps and 66th Rifle Corps.


Commander of Southern and Southwestern Fronts:
Set up defensive positions on the Dnepr and prepare to hold the eastern banks until ordered otherwise. Kiev must also be held. You are authorized to give up all ground west of the Dnepr. You are also authorized to use as much rail capacity as you need to save as many troops as possible from the southern sectors of the front.

Turn done. I hope that his Panzers are low on fuel, if not I lose an army at Pskov.

@Sardaukar: There is the possibility that the Germans push on the northern bank of the Daugava or to Velikie Lukij. If this happens, the defense at Smolensk is probably off balance. We will have to work together to stop this.

Comrades, Southern Front managed to establish a troop concentration at Kamenets-Podolsky. The Coastal Army moves backwards to the Dnestr. Unfortunatelly we didn't get contact to the encircled divisions at Brody. On the other hand we were able to cut of the eastern spearhead of the german advance.

I think it will be good to have a screenshot of the end of the turn as well so people can see what happened what happened during the Soviet turn?

Bombing Berlin: For psychological and historical reasons we should do at least one bombing run on Berlin with a few long range bombers, though it will hurt us more than the Germans.

From: STAVKA

To: All Front Commanders

Orders:
The Fascist invaders are pushing east despite your efforts. In order to secure our armaments production, a relocation of certain strategic production elements has begun. Kiev and Mogliev have been evacuated.

To ensure the defence of Moscow, STAVKA has taken control over three armies. They have been color coded to make sure you do not touch them. The red and black armies are now under special STAVKA orders and you are not to interfere with these units for any reason whatsoever.

All airborne troops are to disengage from frontline fighting, and are to move to MOSCOW as soon as possible.

To Commander of Northern Front:
You are to take control of all units north of the Dvina, and any units that are under the command of your fronts. STAVKA has assigned some units to your Fronts and these are yours to control. Previous orders remain in effect. Withdrawal from the Pskov-region is encouraged, in order to mount a more effective defence elsewhere.

To Commander of Western Front:
STAVKA has assigned additional forces to your command, mostly units from the Southwestern front. These units are yours to use. You are to continue fightning a delaying action in the direction of VYAZMA. You are NOT authorized to retreat east of the line VYAZMA-RZHEV.

To Commander of Southern Front:
You are to continue fighting a delaying action. Avoid losing troops at any cost. You must hold KHARKOV until end of July and you should hold SEVASTOPOL into the winter. You are allowed to retreat east to VORONEZH and ROSTOV. But further withdrawal than that must be authorized by STAVKA.

I was able to open my the pocket in the North once again and ZOC locked the movement supply path to the panzers. Gradual witdrawal to Pskov while using the terrain for defense. Was displaced an enemy infantry HQ hehe. Digging at Leningrad begins. Requesting a lot of sapper regiments for fort construction and an all out bombing of the German Panzer spearheads. They are vulnerable in the open.

Edit: Important message to the commander of the central front: I don't need 4 of my divisions this turn respectively they are too far away to be of some use for me: Two divisions assigend to the 61st rifle corps and the 18th and 73rd rifle division and Smolensk. As you are too short of units to defend the land bridge at Smolensk, I allow you to use them this turn. Be nice to them and keep them alive until next turn, I might need them then.

Western Front troops are preparing to fight behind upper Dnepr-River, with 3 possible defensive positions (as in picture).

I like the second line though. A mighty pencil-stroke on a map. That'll show them

Oops....was bit confused...Siberian logging camp for me.

Well...I will probably have to withdraw behind Dnepr soon. Thus the second line.

You should place NKVD border regiments on the HQs and assign political commissars to insure execution of orders. The northern front uses the airforce without permission (it had my colour!!!) and does foreign policy by bombing the Fins.
Now the central front steals an entire army from the STAVKA.
What will the southern front do? Will it take the STAVKA HQ and use it as a front command or kidnap the best leaders with the airborne units and force them to command its units?

Yes, good idea - you want me to hijack my favorite commanders :) But take your staff for yourself... I don't want that Stavka Bureaucrats near my command!

Ok, let's see - I think I can open Frontlines to let the Fascist Hordes move on - if I'm lucky they will be that fast, they can Smash their own rear guard :D

Today in the evening my Actions will be done.

To all front commanders:
Recently mobilized divisions have been assigned to your fronts. Do not interfere with STAVKA units (white, red or black)



Northern Front:
The line JANISJARVI-SORTAVALA is to be held at any cost. To this end, six recently mobilized divisions have been transferred to the 7th Independent Army. 7th Independent army units on the finnish border must buy time for these fresh divisions to be able to prepare good defensive positions

Western Front:
No change since last turn. Keep up a fighting withdrawal towards the VYAZMA-line.

Southern Front:
The rate of advance is surprisingly slow. Prepare defensive lines on the DNEPR and see if you can hold them there.

SITREP: Western Front

I have tried not to make counter-attacks but instead preserving troops and fighting defensively to slow down enemy. Also trying to slow down AGC by imposing as much ZOC I can.

We'll have to stand in front of Moscow.

Can STAVKA HQ colour troops that I can command with something, so I do not accidentally poach troops from STAVKA? It was honest misunderstandment (said Front Commander in Ljubjanka cellars...)

All your avaliable units are now colored. I have noticed that you have an army down at Kiev. Which is weird. You can use the units attached to Orel MD, Western Front and Moscow MD. But not the Moscow MD units that are red or the western front units that are black.

If memory serves me right, I railed in a fresh army for you and assigned it to the Western Front. They are on rail a bit southeast of Smolensk. These you can use however you wish.

The north is finished.
I messed up at Pskov and will lose even more divisions there. Gulag comes closer, need a major victory. Maybe against the fins?
Request a more active Red airforce. I am in need of sapper regiments.

Your requests have been recieved comrade. The red airforce is currently unavaliable for attack missions, but they will soon take control over the skies. Sapper regiments will be formed and assigned to your front headquarters. How many do you need?

2 per army would be good. If there arent enough 1 for standard armies and two for important important armies. Sappers help the units building fortifications + help in combat so they are very useful, not even three per army are too many.

Center done, file in Dropbox.

SITREP:

We have 3...ok...call it 2 and half defensive lines in front of Moscow. I could do with some artillery and sappers too, if you can spare some. I'd even take sapper battalions. But most should go to STAVKA defensive lines in front of Moscow.

I am also trying to save airbourne brigades, since AFAIK they can be made to guards divisions/corps later.

This is how I want Moscow defended. Outside the first line of defence is just a bonus. But no units should be committed to defence there because it is too easy to get surrounded by a HQBU. Now, I have been monitoring the German rail-progress, and we are not in danger of one just yet. But soon, we will need to defend only inside these three lines.

Also note the border with Northwestern Front.
