cpt flam -> FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/7/2019 5:56:58 AM)

Here we go
I will have one turn delay.
First turn has been hard.
Air losses of 2 423 for 212 claimed.
Part of them can come from mixed units where range is the longer one.

I included a picture sector of Lvov.
Part of air losses are there too.
As visible they are making the most to isolate our troopers.
As usual a lot of units are reorganizing.

What will be your strategy? Will you try to retreat as fast as possible, or try an advanced defense in some key area to slow the Axis down?




cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/9/2019 5:39:59 AM)

for the moment
a reinforced corp will fight for Minsk.
most of the Tank corps are asked to delay the invaders.
I must gain some time to form a defensive line.




cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/12/2019 4:57:03 AM)

second turn for me
I put a view over Minsk

they are actually running around us to cut our supply and isolate us
my air force is trying to recover
I must wait turn 4 to put some on air superiority
at this time air shock will become 120-80
for the moment 150-5

we begin to destroy bridge, on turn 1 i did only in view

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/15/2019 6:02:27 AM)

turn 3 and the nightmare continue

Minsk is actually supplied but this will not be for a long time
I began to put some I 153 on Air superiority
they are not the best but they are the most in number and replacement. All they can catch will be good.
Reinforcement begin to arrive.
We moved the factory from Gomel. It was the most threatened.

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/15/2019 6:06:48 AM)

In the south
their advance elements reach the Stalin line.

You can see how many of their units have been divided.
Even like that I can't push them much.

We'll see later, how this resolve.
Air losses are visible.

I sent turn 5 and show you about turn 4
in the north, Riga failed
an Axis partisan is situated in Tartu

air war is fine 32 lost vs 38
some DD made a night raid in the great north.

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/21/2019 7:24:29 AM)

southern part is a mess

last turn I moved units by rail, Gomel factory was this turn

my units in contact are literally blocked
even stacked trying to move one, result in rout or disappear sometime

part of them are begging supply, but I can't do much for them without having more isolated.

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/25/2019 6:15:15 AM)

Turn 5
all the rail capacity was used to move units
even like that many must walk toward the front line

Minsk has not been attacked yet
they must wait infantry for that

[image]local://upfiles/37270/E2963C16FF494437B3E4C8D36146ECB2.jpg[/image]




cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/25/2019 6:23:58 AM)

in the south

part of the front is isolated

air losses will be upgraded for them
I could move a flotilla and made a raid against an airfield near Bolgrad (south of Bessarabia)
a bomber group is sent to reinforcement stack

Rumania is moving to contact

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (8/31/2019 6:57:57 AM)

farther south along Dniester

12th Army is blocked by Hungary units

I made few attacks killing 3 Axis units:
1 Partisan in Tartu
a company part of the Reconnaissance unit of a Panzer division
a battalion of Rumania (Cavalry brigade divided)

better than nothing
air war continue with 44 planes for us vs 6 of them [&o]

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/4/2019 5:40:18 AM)

Turn 7
I gave them much ground from beginning and pay it now
greater shock for them this turn and some of my formations are reorganizing

they get contact with Minsk

Kiev factories are put on rail + 3 Cavalry divisions and 8 Infantry

[image]local://upfiles/37270/96AF5D3D699D427E8739EAEE7F199A32.jpg[/image]




cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/4/2019 5:46:49 AM)

greater view from the south

Zhitomir is kept by 3/79 Tank
a bit south of there, a Militia Division has been isolated

I will keep you inform from losses soon
for the moment, stock of INF replacement as not been damaged

air war is horrible


[image]local://upfiles/37270/F57C65436EC747D7BB368769B974B0D1.jpg[/image]




cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/10/2019 6:19:55 AM)

in the north
Minsk failed to the invaders, pocket is reduced
First unit lost for them is a regiment from 30th Infantry near Pskov, trying an assault.

My lost are visible for Infantry, Cavalry and some support.
Majority of them were in border troops, some Mechanized corps and Cavalry divisions.

Air losses can be seen too.

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/10/2019 6:26:47 AM)

southern part of the front
I'm trying to recover part of 6th and 12th Armies

a lot of adversary engineers are on the front line, this way not much bridges are repaired.
this must hinder part of their supply.

Air war cost much for our fighters as you can see.
Only Lagg units have not yet suffered.
I get a problem with some groups which stay disorganized in occupied territory.

Cfant -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/10/2019 7:29:38 AM)

Thanks for this AAR [:)] Soviet losses don't look harsh to me. But the fast german advance is concerning.




StuccoFresco -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/10/2019 2:00:28 PM)

The Minsk pocket is really big...




cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/11/2019 6:24:31 AM)

Minsk was defended by about 2 Rifle divisions and support
another one has been blocked when I tried to give them some space.

Cfant, I'm concerned as you but it's a bit late now to change this.
First wave of reinforcement is diluting but I begin to receive units reform (killed before).




Cfant -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/11/2019 7:30:05 AM)

Minsk is ok. The longer it holds, the longer the germans can't repair the rail.




cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/18/2019 7:25:37 AM)

Turn 9
in the north sector Pskov- Nevel

they bombard Pskov, but no attack yet
Red units are Forts and NKVD (divisions and border regiments)

I choose to reorganize Artillery, this remove AT brigade (there was few remaining) to form regiment at Army level.
Artillery at corp level will be removed to form other units.

I have option to disband Mechanized corps too, this will be for later as I need them for the moment.

extreme south
Odessa is supplied by rail (for the moment)

the red cross is where Brandeburg battalion is buried

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/28/2019 6:35:09 AM)

Turn 11 is there
they didn't attack Pskov and won't get bonus on turn 13.

a new threat come as a division has been partly repulsed
hopefully 10th Mechanized corp was on way to reinforce this place

I try to keep mini-map about sector and air losses visible

cpt flam -> RE: FITE2- Lobster Axis, Cpt Flam Soviet (9/28/2019 6:42:56 AM)

in the center
Skeleton of the 2 divisions are always in Minsk
can't remember if they are form (OOB) in old style.
If this is true, they will need 18 turns to reform after they disappear.

13th Army is keeping Mogilev.

As you can see, some German units begin to suffer.
Infantry regiment going from 15-24 to 9-13 (60%).
