Just an Idea, perhaps there should be an event where Soviet mothball Baltic Fleet
[From a comment Larry's current D21 AAR, but I didn't want to impinge on his thread.]
It's a sore topic for me, as a scenario designer, how to handle the 'on paper formidable' Soviet Navy. Having just gone thru all the testing and changes for the newer version, the Soviet Naval units were a nuisance, and I still couldn't come to a comfortable answer.
If Leningrad/Kronstadt falls, the Soviet Baltic Fleet would have been scuttled to prevent Jerry from using them. We can't argue that, can we ?
The Soviet Navy was not going to do any serious 'navying'. See Albert Seaton's book 'Russo-German War' for a nice unbiased rundown of the Red Navy's capabilities.
I thought we had put Withdrawal Events in D21 to get those units out of our hair under the right conditions, maybe I mis-remember. But I have put such events into this later version.
