The second item is the point for constructing a fort region. I know this used to be a great deal higher in 1.11.0 and before (I think 8). So on turn 3 this cost is 4!!!! Boy, I love this as the Soviet player & is a big plus IMHO for the Soviets. But I could be wrong on this and always like that. So I need a Soviet expert to confirm or deny this.
HO Dam right it's a big plus for the Soviets!
my favorite strategy for Building forts in 1941:
step 1- during turn 1 and 2, bring all sapper regiments to the Volga M.D HQ (even with Stavka at support level 9, engineers seam to go where ever the f## they want).
step 2- at turn 3, choose well where to build the forts, Priority should go to the Neva river, especially the Right most hex.
step 3- put the Fort under the Volga M.D and attach 3 sapper regiments, they are over sized and experienced in 1941, we are talking like 10-13 construction value PER sapper regiment! meaning that building level 3 forts in a 1 to 2 months is possible!
step (optional)- you can also build a fort in Osivinovets( Ladoga port) to build up to level 4 (or 5) as a fall back! never make it easy for the Germans, but perhaps using the sappers in Moscow and other is more wise.
