BrianG -> BrianG v. HYLA (no hard luck) (8/26/2018 10:18:32 PM)

This is my 5th or 6th game as the Germans.

Should be difficult.

Here are my meager air kills. I fail to select German airgroups for each mission unlike how I play when Russian.


I went after the good planes and recon.

Riga falls to hasty. I fail to give retreat route. Thus they rout.

Key point down south must be annihilated.

That's what they kept saying in the preattack meetings.

BrianG -> RE: BrianG v. HYLA (no hard luck) (8/26/2018 10:28:05 PM)

Swamp final positions. I cut east west transverse swamp rr lines.

Kovel is Open but troops will never get out.

BrianG -> RE: BrianG v. HYLA (no hard luck) (8/26/2018 10:32:16 PM)

I think the pocket will hold. To many hexes to convert for russians

Well given the loss the rout isn't much different from surrender.

Btw I've always used one panzer to take Riga and has never failed. But looking at CV numbers here, even two divisions were barely enough. Maybe it's safer to use two panzers here because as Axis you really can't afford not taking Riga on T1.




MarauderPL -> RE: BrianG v. HYLA (no hard luck) (8/28/2018 10:33:37 AM)

You can try with one PzDiv, if that fails, attack again with two.




BrianG -> RE: BrianG v. HYLA (no hard luck) (8/28/2018 12:08:04 PM)

if you use 2, they still have 1 hex mp range to move. one into riga and other to the east




BrianG -> turn 2 (9/6/2018 2:05:59 AM)

German counter moves in the middle

BrianG -> RE: turn 2 (9/6/2018 2:12:13 AM)

lots of Russian bombings.

BrianG -> RE: turn 2 (9/6/2018 2:14:10 AM)

I attempt to form new pocket. This is one of the possible avenues of advance. East over river then due south

BrianG -> RE: turn 2 (9/6/2018 2:17:44 AM)

This was a key point that needed to be moved

BrianG -> RE: turn 2 (9/6/2018 2:18:34 AM)
