OK guys, here we go.
I will first produce several pictures to show you the overall situation at the starting date (1943/2/25) and then go to the hotpots where the main action is. in case I get a remarkable result, I will post the specific battle report and at the end I will post the casualties and the OOB. So have fun.
Basically the standard move. Captured Leningrad, activated the finish army and manned the west river bank of the river Wolchow:
Here is where Piotrmx decided to attack. You see a lot of guards corps full stacks. I moved 1 SS tank corps and 1 regular tank corps here to help with the defense. Also, the corps HQ's are packed with artillery, AA and each INF corps has at least 1 SPG unit:
A close look at the Moscow area:
The biggest Battle around Moscow. I wonder how long it will take for his La-5 units to wipe out my fighter force.:)
Now that's another hot spot. After capturing 350k red army soldiers near Tula in early summer, I decided to relocate the Schwerpunkt to Rostov, cross the Don and attack the Caucasus. I was not able to capture Baku because it was too late and because my opponent brought in powerful corps size units and blocked my attack.
But I guess it was not a complete failure because I got some industry, damaged his oil production and captured some manpower centers.
So in the winter I began to retreat my mountain, infantry and tank units from there while 1.5 tank army covered the left flank near Stalingrad.
So now you got an overview over the strategic situation.
Here are the loses. I think as long as I keep them at 3:1 in my favor, i still have a chance.
The Air lose screen. The Luftwaffe fighter units are still superior and I tend to have all LW AA units in corps HQ's while the SPG AA units are assigned to Tank corps HQ's.
The OOB. The red army is pretty strong for 1943 but I guess my 7200 tanks are also not too bad.
My best unit:
