Here's what the Bryansk area looks like right now. I have a task force heading east and they have captured Bryansk and are now fighting to get into the more favorable terrain to the east. My motorized units can really shine in the clear terrain. I'm expecting to run into a lot more Soviet units to the east however so I'm going to have to bolster the task force with some Panzer divisions. Orel lies just off the edge of this image and I'm going to have to capture the road that leads there. And the rails. Supply levels are in the high teens which is enough to keep going a little further.

Here's what the Crimea looks like right now. I have forced my way through the bottleneck on the left and am rolling units directly south, converting the terrain and dealing with the Soviet units that have taken up blocking positions to delay the inevitable. I'm optimistic that I can take down the port city by 04Dec41. Successfully doing that will release the Bulgarians for operations and I could really use those troops in the south. Note the high level of supply at the tip end of the spear leading south.

I've pushed east far enough to get the front lines and Moscow in the same image. The supply level gets down to the high 20's at the front but it's mostly outstanding everywhere else. The rails are repaired up to the front lines at Vyazma so I've sent the RR engineers to go to the south to get the rails caught up to the front lines and set off to the east toward Stalingrad.

Here's what's going on in the middle of nowhere far east of Kiev near Kharkov. We're fighting over it because of all the rails that run through there. I need those rails. And it's got some convient airfields clustered there. About 1/3 of the planes are yellow and resting, and there's about 30K German Heavy Rifle Squads assigned to the force. Rather than hollow out my units I'm going to taper back on the attacks to try to maintain a level of about 30K HRS's assigned. I'll need about that many to hold the Soviets back when they launch their Soviet Winter Offensive.

T17, Kiev
Here's what's going on in Kiev right now. I have pretty much surrounded the Soviet units near the riverbank and now I'm liquidating them a few at a time. There's quite a few Soviet divisions in the catch and maybe a motorized unit or two. The advance has pushed on to the east and all the German units in this area doing mop up will eventually catch up to the front. The repaired rail travels south past Kiev down to D-town where it branches to the east and south. The Romanians are clearing the Crimea and are marching toward Sevastopol and the Kertch Straits. The terrain near Leningrad is forested and motorized operations in that kind of terrain is countraindicated. So I'm thinking of moving the Panzers down south to the kind of terrain that will show how they can shine. I'm dreaming of leaps forward of hundreds of kilometers per turn. To surround and isolate Soviet units arriving at the front by going around them.

T18, Kharkov
I have reached Kharkov and I'm trying to surround the enemy units and destroy them in place. The AS levels are 41 Axis and 31 Soviet. The Soviets are fielding more and more aircraft and the losses this turn so far are 7 Axis and 130 Soviet. I'm considering putting my fighters on a 2-dot stance rather than ignore losses since the air shock difference isn't that great any longer: 120% Axis and 75% Soviet. The bombers have been on 2-dots since the beginning of the game. There is plenty of enemy hexes in my backfield and I really do need to convert all of them so there's no possibility of Soviet units spawning in my backfield. The railroad is right up at the front so the supply levels are pretty good. There are some pretty large gaps in my front lines because of the presence of the river. I'm bringing up some engineers to help my troops leap over it. Progress is being made in this AO.

Here's what's happening just north of Sevastopol and shows how the Germans and Romanians are approaching the port city and are running into really stiff opposition. My troops have come into range of the CD guns north of the city and losses from bombardments are mounting. I think I need to surround the entire city before I get serious about attacking enmasse. If I had any capital ships I would use them now. I'm hoping my Stukas can sink the Soviet ships to prevent any raids on my airfields close to the coast. I'm going to fly all the Romanian aircraft into this area and adjust their range so that they are committed to this fight alone.

T19, Moscow
Here's a view of what's happening in the middle of the map. I'm sneaking up on Moscow slowly. I'm expecting a lot more Soviet units the closer I get to the city. I'm trying to surround a few of them at a time and destroy them. Elmer usually fills up the gap with more units and rinse and repeat. The supply levels are great so far and the air war is heating up since the Soviets have fielded a lot more fighters and their AS level has risen. I've changed my fighters from three-dots to a two-dot stance. Once I capture the city I'm going to build a big beautiful wall around it and I'm going to make the Mexicans pay for the wall. It's only late August and I'm almost at the surburbs of the city again. I think the scenario may still be unbalanced ( pro Axis ) so I'm thinking of taking the RR engineers from the divisional HQ's and just leave them in the Corps HQ units and see how that plays.
