The Luftwaffe met the elite guard yak squadrons of the red air force this week. What should have been a business as usual air supply mission for our elite:) Rumanian comrades heading for Stalingrad turned to a massacre. Our fighters were on the outside of their range when hundreds of yaks attacked. Our slightly inexperienced fw's were overmatched and the ju's massacred. Losing total air suppriority for the winter would be real nice:(

We suspect great soviet offense near Tula where 5 soviet shock armies are massed. They were bombed as hard as we could. We dont think they noticed it:(

p.s: I did not play for a long time... Something came to my mind just I saw the blizzard. How was that with the blizzard bug? High readiness shatters as well? If that is the case I'm doomed as my line is over 80 readiness on most places, dug in real deep. Is my line dead?

Tom1939, you are narrating an interesting story my friend, keep up the good work. Why isn't TDV adding any narrative? Give some balance to the story. (aka, counter Goebbels propaganda...lol)

Sorry, my English isn't so good. I doubt my stories would be a fun for readers.
My key mistake in this game I was sure that the single PanzerCorps can't come through a full size Shock Army with good entrenchment level (4) in September 1941.
(Shock Army - 1 Tank dision (800 strenght, experience 45-47), 7 Rifle divisions (size - 280-310, experience 40-45).
Leadership - Vasilevskii (8), OP=60.

After that I got a huge encirclement and lost about 18000 squads.

Now the balance in losses is 5000(German side)/50000 (Russian side).
Not to bad for me. At least I have enough full size divisions for the first line Armies.

p.s.1: TDV your english is not bad at all, it would be fun if you would write down your side of the war

p.s.2: the blizzard bug is still around, my high readiness units showed up in much smaller numbers to combat then slightly lower readiness units I think (the one that got shattered was a full stacked 90+ readiness, entrenched fortress...)

I am playing a solo game right now that is almost exactly pacing the posts you guys are making. So it's very interesting for me too see.

I got 3 weeks of blizzard in December and somehow you guys are getting rain ? Sheesh.

This Galland guy jumping in for Goering is very agressive. He isnsists on first destroying the best yak units of the enemy. It will be easy after that he keeps sayin, we will destroy other air concentrations with our battle hardened fw's much easier after that. Well it is a bloody massacre right now:(

Rain

Seeing that our lines are broken through at will by the reds the Fuhrer got a nervous breakdown. Manstein took over and ordered immidiate retreat on all fronts. Our losses are too devastating to stay. New lines are prepared near Minsk. The secret weapons of germany work on to create more rain...

As peace loving folks, we offered peace to the soviets through the Swedish embasy if they openly apologize for the agression against germany, they hand Ukraine, Belourus, the baltic states to germany, and agree to have an army of maximum 400.000 man with max 20.0000 kg tanks (max 300), and max 76mm artillery (max 500). Hopefully they see how favourable this terms are to them we can stop this mindless killing.

Germans are retreating very fast. We couldn't catch them this week. Orel, Bryansk, Smolensk, Velikie Luki, Demyansk, Voronezh, Rostov are liberated.

Soviet airforces tried to get a local air superiority at the North. No luck. We lost 555 planes, the German losses are 256 BF-109f

2 weeks ago the red air force somewhat weakened some mixed fighters. 2 squadrons of bf's were a bit more though:) The red air force keeps itself away from the fw's massed in the centre. But not far enough. The fw's broke through the air defence 3 times to bomb a soviet airfield but the bombers must had snow blindness as very few planes were destroyed on the ground.

Goebbels announced total war this week. Our new panzers will get back everything with intrest after this horrible winter.

Pravda was speaking about total running after that. Now we understand jokes. We just dont like them:(

This mild weather is very nice, our rainmakin wonder weapon works fine. The front could be taken back not only on rail without losses.

Soviet airfields were hit again in the centre with better results this time. In the centre we slowly regain total air control as the red's are focused on the destruction of our northern air foce.

Somwhere between the empty corpses with only few guns the panzers are hiding and waiting on the lucky combination of snow and too brave red armies.

The middle of January.

Vitebsk and Stalino are liberated.

The Red Army still didn't have two consecutive weeks of the blizzard.
Soviet troops are tired to offence in the mud. Readyness are low. Stalin afraid the German counterattacks: German Corps after the rest have a good chance to shatter tired advancing Soviet Armies during the snow. The snow is exactly what we will have next week.

p.s: in reality nothing happened, I'm just joking with TDV to wake him up from boredom. His troops are still to far away from my second line. I did the same to him in my mail:) Real losses are 27 planes for germany and 249 squads, 36 afv's, 120 guns, and 12 planes for the soviets.

The German defence line is located at Leningrad-Pskov-Daugavpils-Minsk.
This is far away from the line of my initial offence (Kalinin-Rzhev-Tula)

The German propaganda is provoking us to march faster. In this case fresh German Corps will catch tired Soviet troops and will shatter it.

No ground battles this turn, the big air battle was over the North. 414 german fighters were destroyed, our losses are 444 planes.

Hitler has gotten over his depression and ordered Pskov to be held all costs. Manstein assured him that he wants to hold it as well to keep Lenningrad in supply. The soviets seemingly show no intrest in taking back Lenningrad in a frontal assault against mixed finnish german units. 5 rested panzer korpses await snow just behind the lines in the Pskov area, one more coming in each week. 1500 more rested and trained are fw's are sent in the area to have the air filled with german bombers only. Pskov will be a big garveyard of the red army or the werhmacht depending on the weather. Will the red's take their chance and assault?

Blizzard

Last week the soviets launched 2 massive attacks against the Pskov line. One of them were stopped at the last line of defence, fortifications are gone. The german soldaten are crying for panzer support (which they saw behind the lines). The panzer commanders want to go for it, they are nearly rebbelling against orders to stay back. But we will not waste valuable panzers in the blizzard. Sadly blood is cheaper. All we need is one turn of snow to unleash hell on the reds, until that only the Luftwaffe (which dominates the skies in the most important Pskov area) helps out the poor souls defending by bombing the soviet armies assaulting.

Hopefully the big blizzards have ended. Now we prepare our revenge for the many lost men and land.

Hitler has opened a new fw 190a factory this week, and promised much more weapons for the front as the total war gets more steam. A new panzer division is ready as well with new panzers nearly equal to the t34.

Snow

In the Pskov area the panzers were let loose to help out the infantry. In a massive counterstrike involving 6 full strength panzer korpses the situation changed somewhat. 5 attacking soviet armies (including 4 shock) are now encircled. The route to the east is closed, they have to break through for their freedom. Infantry units are ordered to prepare for the revengfull extermination of the kessel next week. A late blizzard next week would change back everything...

Russians are in danger now.
However we restored the supply line to our three encircled armies.
Two other ones couldn't break through.
In Zhukov opinion, Germans jumped out of defence a bit early because the weather is not stable and only snow would be OK for Germans.
Next turn will be blizzard

In Manstein opinion rain would have been fine as well. The soviet lines had big holes, we could have made a new encirclement for 3 shock and 1 normal armies without combat. In rain that would have been unbreakable.

But blizzard is disaster. Our gamble backfired big time. With an all out desparation attack we forced 2 shock armies to surrender. But 2 other armies encircled held out our assaults.

Now the red army can destroy the exhasusted panzers with an all out attack. We can only hope that Zhukov will be overly cautious.

Four German Corps have been shattered: one full sized Panzer Corps, one full sized Inf. Corps, and two fake Corps.
One more Panzer Corps was forced to retreat with big losses.
Over 700 german tanks have been destroyed.

Next turn will be snow and Zhukov expects a German revenge.
