I tried to reorganize the front line a bit.
I have some issue with the fuel supply going to the PZDs.

Question: Is there a way to know where is the supply coming from?
The town providing supply is mentioned but good luck to find it!

Anyway, here we are at the end of turn 5. I feel a bit behind.

Hit h on your keyboard and a search screen will come up - select city and type the name and it will take you there.

Turn 6.

Supplies are slowly making their way to the combat units.
PZDs are moving forward, slowly this time, and reach the subburbs of Leningrad.
Lot of digging was made on the soviet side, time to bring the IDs forward.

IDs are still moving eastward, no major issue there.

Situation at the end of the turn:

Knows and is scripted for it

Are you familiar with HQ Buildups? - it is the most important tool to keep your motorised full of movement.

Turn 7.

Very slow progress towards Leningrad.
GAIA is moving some units in the vicinity of Novgorod. I will have to be careful there.

Finnish army reached it's limit line. How frustrating...
Here we are:

20.6 - which sounds deceptively obscure. In fact until v1.11.00 most Axis players spent every turn trying to do as many HQ buildups as possible - it was virtually the number one thing. The costs have gone up in v1.11.01. But it is still a very important part of your supply toolkit.

Congrats.

Scenario completed.

It's been a tough fight in Leningrad.
Soviet units moved from the NE corner and from the SE/S corners (let's say from Moscow) in order to take some important VP locations back.

I had to reorganize a bit my units to fight the NE corner push. Recon flights spotted a lot of SU units, I mean a lot!

Basically 2 battles were fought. One in the Leningrad suburbs, and the second one along a front running north/south and west/east.
Both fronts saw bitter fighting. German forces stopped the Soviet push and forced them slowly backward while the battle for Leningrad was turning into a blood bath.

Below the screenshots of turns 11 - 17.

Turn 11.
Soviet units came form the NE corner and formed a north/south front line.

Axis major victory. VP advantage 4.8 to 1.

Great scenario, really liked it.
I was not expecting the SU units push from Moscow area, luckily I left some units to secure the VP locations.
I was also not expecting the SU forces to be so numerous and to try to isolate the GE units near Leningrad.

Tons of fun (and a bit of swearing!).
