New moves from Jonathan, it's T6 and this is what Riga looks like now. As soon as I capture Riga I'm going to build a beautiful concrete wall around it and I'm going to make Mexico pay for it. The rail isn't quite at Riga yet but the supply levels are fantastic and I'm moving more RR engineers up here to try to catch up to the front lines. I need Riga because of the confluence of railroads that pass through there. Plus, any LCU's that I need to move from east Germany can go by ship to the port at Riga and save the rail cap for another formation. There's not a lot of rail cap to go around: 6,000 of 6,000 is what it is right now. When I get a set of new moves, the first thing to do is hold down the "period" key and unembark all the units on the rail. Then re-embark the priority units, if any, and take a look at the aircraft, give each aircraft a mission appropriate to that aircraft type, unless you need to use a fighter as a bomber in a specific situation, temporarily and then I start at the head of the OOB and move the units, one formation at a time. I try to keep the formations together if possible. I'm having a blast with this scenario.
