This is my 5th or 6th game as the Germans.

Should be difficult.

Here are my meager air kills. I fail to select German airgroups for each mission unlike how I play when Russian.


I went after the good planes and recon.

Riga falls to hasty. I fail to give retreat route. Thus they rout.

Key point down south must be annihilated.

That's what they kept saying in the preattack meetings.

Swamp final positions. I cut east west transverse swamp rr lines.

Kovel is Open but troops will never get out.

Well given the loss the rout isn't much different from surrender.

Btw I've always used one panzer to take Riga and has never failed. But looking at CV numbers here, even two divisions were barely enough. Maybe it's safer to use two panzers here because as Axis you really can't afford not taking Riga on T1.

You can try with one PzDiv, if that fails, attack again with two.

Final north.

I form pocket around useless airborne and security units.

better off if I had routed the lot of them.

Party time in Leningrad.
