BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/21/2018 8:45:51 PM)

Open Leningrad offensive.

Uh, sort of on historical pace?

Nothing surrounded. that's nice.

BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/21/2018 8:47:46 PM)

Open middle. Gomel in sight and maybe send some tanks north of Kiev to cross river thru swamps. maybe

BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/21/2018 8:49:34 PM)

Middle action.

as in crossing major river.

Tank fuel level horrible

BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/21/2018 8:51:08 PM)

North action

Again just terrible German moves.

New leadership up here is in big need. Tried not to move all my armor.

Now worried more tanks might get cut off

BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/21/2018 8:52:40 PM)

Final Gomel. made it half way.

I assume most of HYLA good troops are further north near Leningrad. Where I am clearly not near.

BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/21/2018 8:53:36 PM)

I had bad fuel near Kiev north. Thus barely made any advance.

BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/21/2018 8:54:41 PM)

final south

I cut off land access to Odessa and get near lower bug river. And try and conserve fuel.

BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/21/2018 8:55:50 PM)

Fins are on the march. I usually try and hold the far north river line as Russians. Here its been left wide open.

Gamer64 -> RE: turn 5 (9/22/2018 12:51:43 PM)

I'm not clear why the Germans quit, it doesn't look too bad to me. What am I missing?

Gamer




BrianG -> RE: turn 5 (9/22/2018 1:09:45 PM)

vacation delayed




MarauderPL -> RE: turn 5 (9/22/2018 2:27:21 PM)

I think that was meant to be posted under EvK vs ST thread [:D]




EwaldvonKleist -> RE: turn 5 (9/22/2018 10:51:31 PM)

Thanks for sharing your game in detail Brian.

I think you need to focus more on encirclement and destruction of Soviet forces. Hardly any unit is too small to be worth pocketing. Routing out instead of surrounding, and aiming for breakthroughs instead of pockets only plays in the hand of an aggressive forward defence. The units you pushed aside walk to the next line and everything repeats, but with more Soviets each time.

Crossing the Dnepr with Panzers South of Mogilev is questionable, as logistics there are bad, even if the railroad is repaired from Minsk.

The Panzers are spread in groups of nor more than two corps over the front, it forces the Soviet player to spread his forces thin but means you remain below the critical mass that allows bigger pockets as an be seen at Velikei Lukie at T5.

All shall be revealed in due time. And did you happen to notice that my tanks have been consistently cut off.

My resupply fuel trucks ( oh sorry, mule horses), have union rules about not galaping through enemy lines.

btw i have no idea what to do with german SU.

Mine are a mess. I have no clue where and which flak should go to whom.




BrianG -> turn 6 open (9/27/2018 10:46:46 PM)

I have located Zhukov.

In charge of 31st Army.

How below rank shall we go.[:D]

BrianG -> turn 6 mid operations (9/27/2018 10:58:15 PM)

Zhadov will be know throughout Russia as the General who lost Gomel. The shame.

Hasty attack here beginning process to corral unit just to the left.

[image]local://upfiles/41373/8878F06B4E0D461AB3E79B46AAE64B9F.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 6 mid operations (9/27/2018 11:01:53 PM)

and over the river.

I want to connect up with my southern troops so I can get my blue armor units, which are just north of Kiev, back north where they belong.

BrianG -> RE: turn 6 mid operations (9/27/2018 11:03:06 PM)

Guderian left the southern area to return north the prior turn and took the long way around.

BrianG -> RE: turn 6 mid operations (9/27/2018 11:06:21 PM)

Final Gomel. I am over the river and will not be knocked backwards. Fuel horrible. Very far from any rr

[image]local://upfiles/41373/B10AA4D9A9904297B22633E6FDA4E5F2.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 6 mid operations (9/27/2018 11:09:58 PM)

Final Smolensk.

I push north of Vitensk and have flank on Smolensk. Otherwise bad supply meant fixing lines and refueling

Any leaving no chance for counterattack.

I have lost a few hasty battles here and there giving Russia some wins

[image]local://upfiles/41373/748569EA9A80488C958685F9428DF370.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 6 mid operations (9/27/2018 11:12:12 PM)

south final

Odessa surrounded and retreat hex left open.

Otherwise rivers crossed. I try to not leave any counterattack chances

[image]local://upfiles/41373/069AEE574A9D4CBC9434B060B8A33282.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 6 mid operations (9/27/2018 11:14:06 PM)

final north. The Fins are thinking " uh the Germans better not leave us out in the wind up here all alone"

[image]local://upfiles/41373/3520C0C49C5848A4AA5CED47A4715162.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> turn 7 (10/4/2018 3:03:19 AM)

Russians flee Odessa.

I attack the retreating cowards on land and on the sea.

ground interdiction also stepped up

[image]local://upfiles/41373/C87159004D394EBB903429DA31B516E4.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 7 (10/4/2018 3:06:01 AM)

I get over the Devina and again attack Zuchov

[image]local://upfiles/41373/4DA40DF2B82F407BA9B1DB558B4EE1FB.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 7 (10/4/2018 3:06:44 AM)

Down south a hasty tank attack gets me to the rivers edge

[image]local://upfiles/41373/C7BB1F302C42477B97817FD678F1C6D7.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 7 (10/4/2018 3:08:08 AM)

North final

I find a pesky cav unit cutting off my supply route. I try and surround.

[image]local://upfiles/41373/9B442F2197034DB08DDB41DE7FF73A24.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 7 (10/4/2018 3:10:37 AM)

final Moscow approach. Fuel still not great but best to take new river for next turn.

I leave 2 mot div unmoved

[image]local://upfiles/41373/EDA44658529C44B1B244EEACE8024D0E.jpg[/image]




BrianG -> RE: turn 7 (10/4/2018 3:12:43 AM)

Middle final. I finally get my blue tank troops back north near their compadres.

Fuel bad though and supply rr still not close. Next turn must rest them or move them closer to rr.
