I'm a bit late with my deployments in the West, but I don't think a defence is possible anyway, especially aginst 28 aircraft of the W-Allies. Makes no sense to leave weak units as sparring dummies to train the enemy imho.
One of the reasons for the delay was some bad luck regarding the conquer of Casablanca. I knew of the can. corps ready to occupy the town and placed the mar. bomber in southern France to destroy it in the turn of the DoW, but the weather turned bad and I didn't want to wait any longer in early sept. 42. Took another 7 turns to reach the goal.
Cutting the railway to Voronesh didn't work for unknown reason, KZ. Also there was no blocking unit in the Netherlands, both may be bugs.
The previous turn I destroyed all 4 of the russian heavy tanks and 12 units alltogether, this turn another 8 units iirc, leaving just 2 surviving tanks to attack with. North of Moskau Vologda is occupied to cut off the railway, also Borisoglebsk and Astara (Caucasus); Veshniye Baskunchak east of Stalingrad is reduced by a german strat. bomber to 0, hopefully leaving the russian main front in less favorable supply. German and italian income is above 1500 MPPs combined.
