The Russian last stand during the german half turn has clearly caused issues sealing the lower cut off Russians.

With another heavy week of bombing and new tank and cav corp, the Russian make successful rescue via attacks over river. Well done by the reds.

No comment about the shear number of Russian bombing attacks. Were a little dazed.

Russian launch air attacks against the Fins


and


attacks out of the Leningrad kessel. Hoping to cut German supply lines? Or desperation?

How are losses from sov bombing this turn (losses during Soviet turn)?
How far (how much damage done) are you with the Leningrad port bombing?

my fighters are not in good shape.

I think he is trying to knock out my fighter coverage.

I do believe he might be succeeding

port damage is in low digits. My campaign to destroy the port is not all out.

It's no matter as I have to cut off the whole lake anyhow.

2 more rivers.

Thank you.
I am in doubt if you can take the ports vs. a determined Soviet resistance with rifle corps, given the bad terrain. Maybe it can work if the Soviets distract themselves with something else. Anyway, cutting off the land connection is at least a partial victory, as the Soviets need to keep a minimum force in Leningrad which is stronger than the minimum hold-the-line force for you and you have the inner lines=positional advantage.

Your fighter fatigue is way too high, over 20% and they drop from the sky like flies. Not because of combat, but of op losses.
You need to rest them in the rear with range=1 hex only (airfield defence) until their fatigue is below 5 and then transfer them back to the front. In their current shape, the air force gives nearly zero results for massive losses.
What do you use your fighters for? Given the current numbers, they should be tasked with no more than escort for manual (selected) ground bombing and airfield defence.

What EvK said. The Soviets have obviously been pursuing an air superiority strategy and they have been successful. You need to pull your air force off the front lines and let them incorporate new aircraft and lower their fatigue before going back into the fray. BTW, make sure that your guys are back far enough that Soviet fighters can't reach their air bases or they will just bomb your bases to keep your fatigue up.

20-22 hexes from the nearest airbase should be enough, unless HLYA has a reserve task force of P40B, they can go up to 33 hexes. Hurricanes also go 21 hexes and are availabe in greater numbers if you spare them from weekly action, I've tried to use the P40 and Hurricanes as my long distance escorts when possible.
