Here's the southern half of the front lines and I must state here for the record that there's a lot of German units that aren't showing up on this map image. My theater recon value is very low and I can't spot very far unfortunately. So the German units can actually sneak up on me. If it weren't for the border between our units I wouldn't know where they are. Oh wait, we're playing with "NO Borders" and that means I can't rely on the borders to tell me where his units are. D'oh. So it appears that neither of us knows where they are right now. We can see the crust of the Axis cake.

I've moved quite a few units and the front lines are changing. I'm building multiple screens because Patrick has a nack of overrunning what screens I do put out. So I need more than just one. I'm hoping to soon have enough troops to form a proper front line and stop the German advance. The AS balance is not as bad as it once was but my planes are still falling out of the air. I'll have to look into the losses so far.

That is a huge map. One could lost just in the Crimea portion.

New moves from Patrick and I watched the combat replay for about 15 minutes and then went to get another Dr. Pepper, my 7th so far today and when I got back I noticed that there were more than 12K events. No wonder it took so long. It just occured to me that you guys might like to see the playback too so I'll zip it up and post it on the next post below.

The Axis forces did another turn of pushing the Soviet units back, surrounding them and destroying them. The Axis advance is moving quickly to the east in many local sectors and has come to a complete halt in other sections. The Soviets are desperately trying to get some MLR's started. MLR's strong enough to hold back German Panzers.

Replacements are arriving by the boat-load, always out of supply and only a skeleton staff for equipment. They need about four turns to fill up with authorized equipment and gather their supply.

My aircraft are falling out of the sky but the Axis losses are trending upward. I've adopted a war of attrition since that's the policy forced upon me by circumstances. I'm not, of course, trying to lose units as fast as possible. The carnage is a result of my defending forward, using weak, slow units. Units easy to overtake and surround. I predict that the Axis advance will approach Moscow really closely.

I started checking out the battles and I came to this airfield attack and I'm not real sure who is attacking who here. I'm guessing it's an Axis attack on a Russian airfield just because of where it's located....far to the east. I especially noticed the minor nations aircraft also participated and I suppose there's no way to control which battle they take part in if the are given a generic AS mission. But there is a house rule about the separate minor nations units taking part in the same battle, it's forbidden. But in this case there's no way to prevent it. So I have no problem with it happening by accident.

This is the northern half of the front lines in T22 before I've started moving any units. You can see where I'm trying to build another defensive line behind the existing ones because if the Axis forces haven't already broken through this turn they soon will. I'm slowly waking up to the fact that I need more arty in the backfield before my troops can stand up to the Germans. I'll take a look in the OOB and see if I can't find all the unemployed arty tubes on the map and give them something to do. Right....like there's any unemployed arty tubes. Maybe I should do a rough and dirty survey of where all the independent arty units are and spread them out better....or maybe it's best to concentrate some in the most important spots? I guess it all depends on how many arty units there are. I'll have to throw together a quick and dirty map of some kind to tell me where everybody is, especially the Panzer units. Stay tuned for another post about an hour from now.

AGC

some progress is made

the picture is there to show supply state and keep some secret

as you can see, HQ are just behind the front to support it
I'm not sure, but some of them must not use all their support
from memory, many got 105 with range of 2 and I don't see much with range different of 3

rail line are far behind as in the south

Okay, here's where the fun starts. Patrick has fractured my front line into multiple pieces and will soon have all those units surrounded and the follow on forces will babysit and the recon units will continue eastward. The hole will get bigger over time and the Soviet units north and south of the hole will be forced to pull back or get killed. There will be no pause from the Germans and they will drive on Moscow and before the dozen divisions I have resting and refitting are fully baked I'll have to committ them to the fight while they are still red. It's starting to get exciting.

that's better than we done last turns

New moves from Patrick and this is the front lines up north on T24 and my defending forward has slowed down the Axis advance a lot and with any luck at all I just might be able to hold what I've got, maybe a little less. I've been railing fresh units to the front lines to take up the position of a man that's fallen. Losses have been horrific....I'll post something about that. As you can see from the air losses meter in the bottom left of this image that my planes are still falling out of the sky. At least I'm making a dent in the Axis air force. I'm making more fighters than he is so I'm pretty sure I can afford the losses. There's been a lot of Axis furballs since I've deployed the aircraft to the action. Whole squadrons evaporating and then showing up about 4 or 5 turns later at Gorky near the Urals. Most of the new aircraft squadrons are "untried" and low on supply. So I usually rest them until they get above 50% readiness and then fling them into the battle. I'm going through a lot of pilots and that's because of the very low hours of training these guys have. Some of them have just gotten out of flight school and you really feel guilty about sending them out into the carnage. Most pilots last about two missions. So if they fly a third mission you can usually quit worrying about them. They have what it takes to survive.

far south

I find a crossing which was not protected
this give us possibility to surround Nova Odessa and his attached defenders

after a probe against Kiev, we now can tell that 23 regiment and 11 HQ are there + 2 Fort
on the entire front, we consider that 81 regiment with 24 HQ are out of supply

we hope to recover some strength during mud period
Rumania will soon have converted units guarding against Bulgaria

Here is about half of the inventory & losses report and I plan to post the other half on a subsequent post. I've annotated it to point out the key numbers.

There will come a time when Axis Allies are Soviet Allies? So maybe that's why the equipment you question.

When you open the unit display and you see the list of equipment there may be some lines that are included that says you don't have any of that item but you may get some in the future, but you're not told when in the future you can expect to start receiving some of it. Sometimes it's important to know that and you have to go look in the inventory and losses dialog for each piece of equipment that you're wondering about. It takes considerable time to do that when if it was on the unit display, readily available as it were, you wouldn't have to do that. I'm just saying.....

Some of you may want to see about the game up close and you'd need a copy of the current game to do that, so I'm attaching here below a copy of the current game. I'm not sure you'll need it but my password is "password" without the quotes.

I've found another example of where information is needed but missing. When a Soviet unit is killed it usually respawns somewhere and if it's going to respawn I'd like to know when and where so I can move it's sister units to that hex to wait it's missing piece. It would save a lot of time. As it is now I have to wait until a future turn until it's listed.

thank you Larry, they are good suggestions to improve FITE.

btw would it be possible to get the German armies in different colors as the Russian army are? It would be helpful and immersive. It would be a real German OOB. Just separating by colors AGC, AGN, AGS is not enough.

A unit does not reconstitute in a set manner. It's variable. So when it respawns is not even known by the game until it actually happens. However, the where is known. So yeah, where it's going to be respawned is possible.
