I will need a good general for 23rd Army if I am to conduct the previously agreed-upon offensive in my sector.

Supreme leader, remember when we discussed that all 20% ToE rifle divisions west of the Volga and all future shell divisions should remains at 20%?
this is to make sure we stockpile supplies and manpower for the winter offensive. its best to leaves these units East of the Volga and not waste rail capacity. I still need to evac the 15 armaments at Rostov just to be safe, its becoming clear manpower will be the Bottleneck, not armaments.



Last I heard from the Supremo was that those divisions around Vologda belonged to me and I could reset them to 70%. I am planning to strike out from Leningrad Front's positions towards the rail junctions east of the Volkhov with the goal of restoring rail links to NW Front's AO. If you want to take those divisions back, fine, but let me know. I have pulled good divisions off the line already and assigned them to 23rd and 8th Armies, to be replaced by the newcomers, so if they are going to remain at 20% TOE I need to know. Wouldn't want to put some 20% guy in the front line by mistake.

I can give you General Major Moskalenko or General Major Katukov who are both able to do their jobs.

Also, Mamluke said West of the VOLGA, and not Vologda ;)

I mean East of the Volga, those units close to the front lines might as well be active.

Just did a mini turn to make my moves in the Crimea.

So you can assign Rokossovsky to your new army and then I'll switch out a commander in my turn. Just keep 15 AP or so for me.

They've been attacking on my front, can I have some rail capacity to move 8th and 23rd Armies up to the Finnish front? I think I can punish them with some counter-attacks, especially given the poor supply situation of the Finnish divisions in particular. I'll need about 25k rail capacity to move two armies. I need the snow turns to attack the Finns since starting with Blizzard they will be buffed (though still low on supplies).

We have turn 22!
Supreme leader, can you let me do like a 1st turn of Cavalry management as well as letting me organize all shell formations (20% ToE rifle divisions) East of the Volga? ho and let the 1st Guards rifle division stay at the Volga and let it train, think of it as a late winter reinforcement.
All those units that are full ToE are of course yours to move, I will mark the GOOD rifle divisions with red color if there are no objections, Sir.

are you sure it's wise to commit your best armies against the Fins? the Fins will NOT suffer any penalties in the Winter, the Germans will.
its not easy disengage an army from the front in winter because of bad mobility.

Doctor King,

the 1st Shock Army (under Central Front command) is moving units to the west of Rybinsk Lake in preparation for the winter offensive, some of them are moving directly, some of them are using the rails where most Northern Front reserve units arrive. All these units are RED in color, so should be easy to distinguish. If you could please just leave them where they are that would be appreciated. : )

Thanks

Sorry, I stole one red guy. I'll send a good division back your way next turn.

My intent is to have 8th and 23rd hit the Finns for the next two turns, then slip left to push along the rail line towards Volkhov. The rail line marks the division between the Finnish and German sectors on my front. Hoping to advance at least ten hexes in that area by the end of December. Then we'll turn south and support First Shock by attacking west of the Rybinsk Reservoir in January. Hoping also to have the rail line connecting to the southern end of my front repaired by that point.

I'm assuming you are intending to attack east of the Rybinsk Reservoir as indicated on your map. West is my side and I will be picking up there in five turns or so. Right now, I'm pushing some newly-arrived recruit divisions down there as the Germans have been attacking. I don't expect them to make much progress as those units were in poor supply status during the mud turns.

Comrades, I want to propose that at the beginning of turn 23, we reset all refit status to normal, and deliberate what should get refit and what shouldn't get it.

I know this a micro intensive, but it can pay nice dividends for turn 25.

What I had in mind was:

Highest priority:

Any Guards units; all good and decent(experience = or » 30) rifle divisions.

Priority: 3 armies worth in the Center

low priority: 1 armies worth in North; South.

if the Center only needs 2 armies worth or less in refit, then North and South can get 2 army refits each.

what do you guys think?

I'm going to be fighting by that point anyway. I've pushed my better corps forward as the Axis are attacking in my sector.

Doctor King,

the 1st Shock Army will be attacking west of the reservoir and pushing south along Volga river, as ordered by Comrade Stalin. It's not my decision, unless there is some misunderstanding on my part.

As in regards to your suggestion Mamluke, I'll go along with whatever Neo decides.

Yes, Darojax, and I will send you one good division next turn by rail to make up for the one I stole last turn. Sorry, I didn't get the memo until later. As regards the Rybinsk Reservoir situation, do you want me to attack down there in support of your operations immediately? I'm not set up for it but there are a couple of weak spots I think I could threaten. In my turn, I did attack a couple of regiments and threaten to cut off a division. Maybe that will cause him to detach some troops from your front and sent them my way. He attacked just west of the reservoir and I retreated a hex. Maybe he will push forward and put his head into a noose? Probably too much to hope for, but our new Axis opponent on the northern front does seem aggressive.

By all means go ahead. Your intent sounds good!

Always a good idea to push at the boundary between two jurisdictions so as to confuse the enemy's response.

Marshal Dr. King, you were given General Krivoshein instead of Moskalenko. He his better in every way.


Special Hoorah to the 2/69 IAP, who successfully destroyed 29 German airplanes.

Cool thanks.

Oh, I talked to SparkleyTits (Axis northern front in this game) and he told me that their front boundary is Moscow. So our push should fall along their jurisdictional boundary. I didn't make any revelations to him.

Order of battle info: he is extremely aggressive and very willing to sacrifice troops for time. I have been able to punish him effectively in our two-player game when he gets too far out in front. So bait some traps for him that will draw him forward.
