T32, 5th of February-12th of February 1944.
The WA have switched their bombing targets and hit V Weapon launch sites in France damaging them heavily. 2 out of the 6 sites will be operational next week, the other ones will be out of action for a bit. The biggest launch site at Cherbourg has been put on priority repairs.
The enemy did not press forward in the Termoli area, due to heavy German Interdiction but chose to attack further south, near Napoli. The 5th Mountain Division, who after being bombed heavily from the air, held back 2 separate attacks by 4 divisions took the brunt of the enemys wrath. The division took heavy losses and needs to be pulled off the line for R&R, however the critical situation does not allow that. They will have to stay on the front and have been reinforced by an Ost Infantry Battalion to bolster their bayonet strength.
Northwest of this position, the Allies were more successful. An attack by the 2nd US Armored Division, the 8th Indian Infantry Division and 2 French Mountain Regiments managed to push back the 3rd Regiment of the 188th Mountain Division, inflicting heavy losses on the German defenders.
We have given ground where possible, but are determined to hold Napoli and won't give the city up without a fight. The 275th ID has arrived in the sector and should reach the front next week.
5th Mountain Division TOE:
In the Piombino sector, the defenders of the port of Civitavecchia have been reinforced by the 416th ID. We will not give up the port without a fight. The LW has flown interdiction missions in the enemy rear in order to hamper the flow of supply to their forward units, which will need good amounts of ammo in the upcoming attack.
Some of the screenshots show the maps without weather conditions so it appears as if the weather is clear. It isn't. In Italy it's rain and light mud. Soft factors have been toggled to show ammo levels.
