When I get tired I take a nap, when I get hungry I eat something and
the rest of the time I'm at my computer churning out the good news.
I've got a PBEM++ game going with Brian ( World at War 1939-1845 )
and I'm doing this workshop for B41
and I'm playing William in a PBEM++ of Campaign for South Vietnam
and I was playing Thomas H. in a PBEM++ of Pacific at War v.3.63
And I'm doing a workshop on D21
and in my spare time I read the postings on the forum and answer questions.
It's a life.

So um....I got bored one night and added a second objective track to the mod, track 2, so you can have a much different
game than you've been having or if you like track 1 then you can choose that one.

Plus, I added a secondary icon or some kind of arty to the Axis engineer units so now they have a range and can use
their arty offensively. The engineers just got more dangerous.

So I thought I'd do a restart and test it here in the workshop.

So for my first trick I used the special forces units, broken down into three separate pieces each, spread out and got
into the Soviet backfield and were then anvil when I destroyed some Soviet defenders and blew a hole in the Soviet
lines. Then I moved a division through the hole and there's more troops to move yet. This could develop into a bulge
or maybe I can roll up the Soviet lines in each direction.

I blocked the retreat route of the Soviet defender on the road and then with a little cooperation from a nearby Panzer
unit I took out the Soviet defender. Now the way looks to be clear on the road for a little ways.

I moved the entire first formation in the OOB, the 1st Infantry Corps with three divisions pre-positioned to take out
the Soviet defender on the west side. I've almost got him surrounded and that's the next step before I take him out
too.

And the next formation to move was the 38th Infantry Corps and they had some bicycle infantry so I ran them up there to
the last open hex, then brought in the same Panzer unit to kill the Soviet unit. He did and now the next task is to
surround and destroy that Soviet group in the road to Riga.

Everything north of the selected unit has moved to the extent that it's movement points will allow. So the remaining
formations will take up the open spot to the direct east.

So I moved everything up north and now the action has moved a little further south to the next formation to move.
I've infiltrated an AA unit into the Soviet backfield trapping a Soviet defender. I'll take him out now.

I expected the Soviet defender to evaporate but he didn't. He's holding out so I scheduled some attacks to take him down
and will move on to the next formation to move.

I'm going to use the Panzers to take out another little Soviet defender. He's in the way and I need that road.

I'm going to step out on a limb here and send the 39th Corps to Wilno and see if they can't capture the road crossing and
the airfield there.

I've moved the 39th Corps to their new positions and they look kind of exposed in their rear by that huge stack of Soviet
stuff a tiny bit northwest that isn't quite isolated yet. Hopefully there will be enough follow on forces to stand in
the gaps.

And I moved another couple of formations and the rear of the 39th Corps is covered a little bit better. So it looks like
we've made a tiny advance to the east. The next major target to get is Minsk and it's production centers there. It will
drop the Soviet production about 10% when I capture that. It's worth getting early in the game.

I found a place where I can bring to bear about 4 German divisions and a lot of arty against two Soviet divisions and
an arty unit. I don't need a fair fight right now. I'm thinking the attack will push the stack backward into the
range of some more of the Axis infantry.

The combat planner says that the chances of the Soviets vacating the hex are good.

The Soviets had a light screen in front of their main line of resistance and I brushed those aside easy enough. Now there
is going to be some pushing and shoving and assignment of attacks and the front lines will change.

I did some pushing and shoving and had a lot of RBC's and swept aside the light screen the Soviets had and rushed into
positions partially surrounding the Soviet line. This is a very good thing. I might be able to disappear some of
those Soviet units this turn.

I used a Panzer unit with tanks to force the Soviet defenders out of the crossroads of the rails and then some Axis
infantry cleared the road to Baranowitze which is one of my short term goals. I'd like to get there this turn.
Also, I'd like to start clearing the path to Minsk.

I've moved a few more formations and I'm spreading out and flowing like water into the path of least resistance and
surrounding Soviet stuff and moving the units forward that aren't employed.

The 24th Panzer Corps made it to B-town and that's about it. They found some Soviet engineers guarding the road and
airfield there. I've got enough MP's to attack the S. engineers but not the airfield. Go figure.

And my recon assets found another Soviet stack near the airfield, to the NW and so I sent a Panzer unit to protect the
recon asset and found yet another Soviet stack and then and then had to send more tanks yet for parity with the Soviets.
Pretty soon there's a whole line of Soviet equipment aligned in my path to Minsk. I need to surround them first of all
to cut off their supply and bring in some arty to bombard them for a turn or two and take them down one stack at a time.

And the next formation in the OOB order is the 17th Infantry Corps a little further south of all the action going on
up north.

Just one hex to the NE of one of my German engineers is the 14th NKVD Brigade and I think the engineers can brush them
aside now that they have an arty capability. I'll see if I can get that little boy to vacate his hex on the river.

Worked like a charmed unit, now my troops have some minor ferry to help them across the minor river under the engr's.

There's been a lot of pushing and shoving and some RBC's and the front lines have changed. The next formation is a
little south still.

I've been moving units and there's been a lot of pushing and shoving and a lot of RBC's and the face of the front lines
is changing again. I've surrounded one unit and I'm trying for more of them.

I've been moving units and several formations later the hole in the Soviet lines got bigger and I'm driving units into
it. I think I'm going to try to roll up the Soviet lines in both directions at the same time.
