July mud is now forecast for middle region.

This is not good news for the russian units about to be cut off and then chopped up.

I spotted an Artilary division, or brigade, and had to attack.

More reasons to not attack

This was my 3rd attack in my attempts to surround major Russian contingent.


This whole breakthru was done based on opportunity imo.

He pushed aside 1 or 2 weak units and some Rumanians and walla he had a big whole.

North final.

Next turn is clear.
Area around Leningrad will be mud if the forecast holds.

I think you're missing a lot of breakthrough potential with that many panzer divisions in the north in bad terrain. I guess the reasoning for the huge Leningrad operation is to capture the closest hexes to Berlin?

I thought you'd have diverted most of the panzers south after Volkhov river was crossed, but seems like you're really intent on taking Leningrad quickly and for good :)

I was making sure that Leningrad will be cut from supply for Good! Plus RR capacity is clearly not enough to move all these tanks. Some at a time. Tank units after cut will be shipped south asap.

Cavalry to the front. Looks like a Budyonny special. The Russian had a flash back to his Civil War days.

It was a very nice WW1 advance. Alas, we are in WW2.

Russians make good attempt to breakthrough to trapped units. I think these Guard Cav divisions came from a split up guards corp.

And in Leningrad we find 4 trapped Army hq's. I will bomb and try and kill generals.

61 23 and 2 others. One I think is a shell hq.

My Airlanding divisions departs with the following record. I always seem to underutilize this unit.

This attack freed up my infantry so that they may go north and clear out the Russian fort line which is holding up my Fins advance.

It was at this moment that the thinking cap came on.

Possibilities.

1 Continue smashing East.

2 Do a reasonable encirclement in this area.

3 Start sending tanks south.

4. Smash south east toward northern Moscow area.

I decide to smash east. At the same time I will start sending tanks south.
Can't move them all at once and I want to keep HYLA troops up here if Possible.

In next few turns I will soon stop my march east, do a move south east as a feint, and keep sending tanks south.

the feint is to keep Russians troops in theatre plus cant move my tanks all in same turn.

THIS IS NOT TANK TERRITORY!

Moscow area. I actually had thoughts that maybe I could advance on Moscow.

Lots of industry is just waiting to be devoured.

Down south

Notice the mud area.

Far south is clear and attempt made to clear river line of enemy.
Rumanians do a good effort
