BrianG -> t57 (4/14/2019 10:25:26 PM)

heavy Russians ground attack down south. I get pushed back near my crossing spot over the Donuts.

West of Rostov Rumanian units have been pummeled. I will try and hold on while I build armor reserve.
Please note complete lack of Russian air recon.

My reserve tank force remains unobserved for now.

BrianG -> RE: t57 (4/14/2019 10:28:30 PM)

I think I ended the last turn a few moves short and left the river unguarded.

Hyla attacks over in what looks like an attack of opportunity. I will crush the invaders and regain the river line.


RR cuts do damage as my tanks on train wanted to come this direction.

No recon. FOW indeed

BrianG -> RE: t57 (4/19/2019 10:42:02 PM)

Rundstedt's Mech rating increased to a 6. nice.

Attack near Leningrad runs into reserve activation.

BrianG -> RE: t57 (4/19/2019 10:43:38 PM)

Down south both side are countering around the port of Tarnopol.

This was a bad German loss to start the weeks activities.

Finally I open up the rr to cross the key junction with fresh reinforcements

BrianG -> RE: t57 (4/19/2019 10:48:21 PM)

This attack opened a lane where my my tanks can proceed south to try and pry something open just north of VV,

BrianG -> T58 OPEN VIEW (4/27/2019 12:56:05 PM)

Up north very light Russian activity and a major retreat. I had read this is Hyla's strategy.

It makes my situation easier as I will need less troops to man the north front in the coming months.

BrianG -> RE: T58 OPEN VIEW (4/27/2019 12:58:48 PM)

South open. Heavy pressure along the sea and around the rr junction.

Again no recon.

How long will my tank reinforcements remain hidden

You have some interesting command penalties that hurt this close battle (1.44:1).

You might want to reduce these penalties. In the 8MP AAR I will post soon that I spent a lot of admin points to focus commands to reduce penalties. I have come to learn that the 20% penalty for direct attachment to OKH is enough to provide the Soviet Union the advantage they need ...

Just a thought ..




M60A3TTS -> RE: t57 (4/27/2019 6:41:46 PM)

There may not be much point in continuing northern ops aside from finishing off Leningrad. Gaining real estate in the south is now the much more worthwhile endeavor.

AGS is overloaded. The lake shore battles are not my main concern atm and ap are needed elsewhere.




BrianG -> 58 action (4/27/2019 7:18:50 PM)

Lower Leningrad. Grateful when no reserve activations ruin these attacks

BrianG -> RE: 58 action (4/27/2019 7:20:20 PM)

somehow I forgot to move the first batch of Italians.

The follow-on troops found a very fun spot to enter the picture.

What is your main spend of points at this point in 42 - if not reassigns, is it leaders or still build ups?




BrianG -> RE: 58 action (4/27/2019 7:29:22 PM)

Down South.

I launch my second phase of the summer 42 campaign. The first phase was capture of Leningrad which is still progressing and which will succeed.

My tanks, which I have funneled into the south region, have not been spotted by Russian recon. I could allow a Russian breakthru first (they are close) and then counter attack.

I think the better risk is to launch now. There I've done it.

Thus phase 2 is launched officially!!! I intend to capture Rostov after Russians retreat against heavy flank attacks east near the Don , and then onto STALINGRAD! Or both at same time. I have given forces 3 months to succeed.

The first attack is not good. Dam reserves again.

Grab some popcorn.

BrianG -> RE: 58 action (4/27/2019 7:48:36 PM)

I send in the tanks. Mano a mano: German Tank division versus Russian Cav corp

I have OKH, ags and agc hq's nearby.

Mostly new leaders (no promotions though) and unit reassignment including moving SU to OKH from up north down to south

By SP do you mean self propelled guns? Was the point spend because you could not wait to let them to drift up and then assign down for free, or to deassign from direct assignment?

sorry I corrected it to SU.

Engineers, tanks, AT and now AA, mostly from units north, back to OKH and then following turn attached to divisions in important attacks.




BrianG -> t58 action (4/28/2019 7:14:22 PM)

I send in the Italians to handle retreat paths for russians
