IRONCROM -> RE: Soviet Build Up (3/23/2008 11:59:52 PM)


ORIGINAL: bwheatley

OK i'm going to redo my whole supply chain so i have strictly supply cities and strictly unit cities unit cities will goto the front supply cities will goto OKW.

How would you guys recommend which city to use as supply cities etc?

I don't think that matters too much. Of course you want Munich as a unit production city...Some guys do prefer to use there high production cities to produce units. Kinda sucks if you have to wait 2 turns for a low production city to produce one tank.

bwheatley -> RE: Soviet Build Up (3/24/2008 12:15:32 AM)

Lucky me i upped my garrison again and the Soviet garrison dropped a little bit and i have some breathing room now. I was very worried the Soviets would go higher and then i'd be at war on their terms!


bwheatley -> Pickle in the Balkins (3/24/2008 12:48:07 AM)

I seemed to have gotten myself back into a pickle in the balkins/Greece. Out of nowhere 4 divisions appear to surround my spearhead. This spearhead has been around since the attack on France. I hope we don't lose it!


bwheatley -> RE: Pickle in the Balkins (3/24/2008 12:50:03 AM)

It seems at least in North Africa we had a good turn after that encirclement. We took out their team in the city and are facing the HQ now!


bwheatley -> RE: Pickle in the Balkins (3/24/2008 12:59:21 AM)

I just built a new AK Divison with 52 RIF 2's and 2 INF Guns. It's been sea lifted to Alexandria. I think taking Malta was the best thing icould have done along with using my italian fleet to batter the Allied navy. I haven't seen their navy since. I have my sub and bb fleet blockading the med at gibraltor now too. Hopefully that will help my cause there.

bwheatley -> RE: Pickle in the Balkins (3/24/2008 1:01:56 AM)

I just researched Infantry 3 now as well. That will be a supply hog but at least we'll have better fighting troops coming off the line for the soviets.

bwheatley -> RE: Pickle in the Balkins (3/24/2008 1:16:29 AM)

This turn my GE garrison is 6046 to SU 5180.

Looks like i just my be able to hold this baby off for a few more turns. It certainly helps my PP when i am sending my units to the front from AG N/C/S instead of from OKW. Thanks for the tips fellas!

bwheatley -> RE: Pickle in the Balkins (3/24/2008 1:16:54 AM)

Also upgrading my infantry to type 3 helped a lot it looks like!

bwheatley -> Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:18:17 AM)

Allies landed in western front..i'm fubared it appears. This AAR might end sooner then later if i can't close this hole off.


bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:23:51 AM)

Well in the balkins i am making progress on the east with my AC unit. But i have those tanks and inf cut off i thinkg this is their last turn alive. Even my other 2nd SS Panzer unit has lost all its SS panzers and it only has 2 Med Tanks left. Along with not knowing where my units will come from for western front invasion repulsion


bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:24:20 AM)

In africa we just took out Wavel HQ. I need some engineers though to break down that river barrier.

bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:26:31 AM)

I'm transferring everything i have in AG South HQ 60 Rif and a couple tanks to a new division that will be strat moved. Hopefully i can use the tanks to encircle and cut them off. Since AG South is already in the balkins it's not counting against my Russia Border PP count yet so this could work. Wish me luck. Thats what i get for using AI++ :)

bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:28:57 AM)

I also moved some of the divisions guarding france and moved my subs over there.

Will having my subs there at least cut off a lot of their supply?


bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:37:31 AM)

I did a little revamping of my Production i dropped my PP production down to 47.6 from 70. My supplies went up to 20k since i was constantly needing 24k worth and only making 15k.

This should help. One question I have 15998 IN for OKW then only 13850 OUT. why?

bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:54:14 AM)

Loses this turn


bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:55:19 AM)

This turns GE Garrison 6244 to 5317. So my luck holds on the east front at least for another turn at december 1941 i have to declare war or i'll be at war in Jan 1942.

bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:56:04 AM)

My pocket in the balkins was battered but it still holds....

bwheatley -> RE: Sh!t (3/24/2008 1:59:34 AM)

I managed to temporarily open up a path for the beleguarded units to pull out. I hope i can keep all these eggs in line for when i have to goto war against USSR. I might have to cut out more PP production so that i can get war units into the mix.


bwheatley -> Risky Attack (3/24/2008 2:04:47 AM)

This is going to be a risky attack but the unit looks like it doesn't have good readiness so this is an all or nothing thing to hopefully stop the probing.


bwheatley -> RE: Risky Attack (3/24/2008 2:05:57 AM)

Here is the result of the attack not as good as i had hoped!


bwheatley -> RE: Risky Attack (3/24/2008 2:17:33 AM)

Ok i have reworked my production again

Supply production: 22142.5
PP down to 7.2
Engineers upto 12
Trucks at 3
Cargoships at .8
MG's 1.8
Bazookas 1.8
Staff 18
Rifle III 236
Fighter III 3
Med Tank III 3.2
Sub II 3.2
Divebomber 1
88 1.1
Trains 4

bwheatley -> RE: Risky Attack (3/24/2008 2:18:53 AM)

Next turn is december 1941 and its do or die. We're going to launch the attack in the peak of winter unless my odds go way up this turn with the increased production. I figure an attack into Russia in mid winter with a readiness penalty for the soviets is still better then them declaring war on me later with no readiness penalty!

Wish me luck fellas.

bwheatley -> Flak 88 are golden! (3/24/2008 2:35:30 AM)

The 88's did their job and blew those 2 tank destroyers to hell. This helped keep the allied perimeter from expanding. Hopefully in a turn or two we can push back and destroy them.


bwheatley -> barbarossa (3/24/2008 2:55:06 AM)

Barbarossa has begun! If the germans have to go down we are going to go down fighting hard. As you can see we've only advanced a few hexes but thats mostly becuase of the crappy weather.

This turn hasn't been so great as for combat.
We've destroyed 438 Infantry Units and about 10 AFV's. In return we've lost 201 Riflemen and 5 AFV's.

This is going to be a tough war. Hopefully i can push back the westerners and finish taking out the balkins so i can focus 100% on russia. I fear it is already lost though.


bwheatley -> RE: barbarossa (3/24/2008 3:11:52 AM)

Here is my losses report for beginning 1942.


bwheatley -> RE: barbarossa (3/24/2008 3:26:07 AM)

After some back and forth here is the new line. My kills have been way under though. I've killed about 100 Enemy infantry and 5 AFV's. In return i've lost 110 Infantry and lost 4 medium tanks.

With the situation in the west on hold while i try to build up strength its not looking positive but we're hoping summer offensive will be good for us.


bwheatley -> RE: barbarossa (3/24/2008 3:27:14 AM)

In good news we just pushed across the suez canal! At least something in the german empire is working how it should!


bwheatley -> RE: barbarossa (3/24/2008 3:49:43 AM)

Well this first turn of feb 1942 warms me seeing that i've given better then i've taken with 240 kill sto their 133 kills.


bwheatley -> RE: barbarossa (3/24/2008 3:52:01 AM)

It appears i have at least kept the two allied paths seperate. But it looks like i'm goign to have to keep these cities very garrisons if i want to have any chance of winning. I need to take those cities back ASAP. But the winter is really f'in me.


bwheatley -> RE: barbarossa (3/24/2008 4:08:10 AM)

This isn't going well at all. Perhaps it was foolish of me to think i could take everything on with AI++ & advanced production for everyone else in the world but myself.

If i can manage to pull this out once winter thaws i need to go have a pint. One benefit has been that while the russians got a supply bonus their readiness was still crap.

At least Africa Korps is doing splendidly!
