South front

news from isolated units in their rear become scarce.

some units are leaved to keep the front (sometimes with no choice).
others keep moving to form a new defensive line.

factories from Dnepropetrovsk are moved to the east.
as I received less reinforcement, i could railed some NKVD and Fortress units reformed.

Hi. I know you have masses of troops sitting behind the front lines with nothing to do. In my game as the Soviets I too have the same thing. There is no way Moscow will ever be threatened. This scenario is seriously flawed. What do I mean by that?

The Soviets are receiving Rifle Divisions four to five turns earlier than they arrived historically. Some even a month early. For instance the 293 Rifle Division didn't even start forming until 10 July. You receive it 9 July. Before it even started forming. It wasn't even combat ready until 29 August. Not only do you get it over a month early, you get it at full strength. Before it even started forming. There are many, many examples of this throughout this scenario's OOB.

The Soviet Rifle Divisions get squads with two Dual Purpose LMG in June 1941. They didn't even appear on the battlefield until December 1942. In July 1941 Soviet Rifle Platoons had two squads with one LMG and two squads with no LMG. This didn't change until December 1941 when they had Rifle Platoons of three squads with one LMG and one squad with no LMG. On top of this Rifle Divisions are reconstituted in a very short time. So the Soviet player gets Rifle Divisions far too early. Far too strong. And the destroyed ones come back far too early. So the Soviet player has masses of units. So many that they sit behind the front lines with nothing to do just as I have in my scenario where I play as the Soviet. If you want to know when units really began forming, when they were assigned and where they were assigned look at Sharp's Soviet Order of Battle World War II. The TOE are in them also.

1941 is critical for the Axis. To intentionally make it this bad for them is a knife in the heart for the Axis side. To go on with this scenario is a waste of your time and a waste of my time. I found out what I needed to know. Until/unless it is fixed there is no point in playing it. So you are declared the winner by default. YAY!!!!

BTW, just got a look at your AAR. Good job on that.
