Progress is slow but it's progressing to the east. The Soviet units are split between the attack from the west and at the stop line above Leningrad and are therefore sparce on their lines. I've got plans to try to trap all the Leningrad area defenders and destroy them before they can escape to the east, deeper into Russia. I've got plans to strip off the Panzer divisions up here and send them south into the better terrain, the more open terrain. I may have to replace them if they are on the front line and I have no idea where the replacement division will come from. I would guess that at least 85% of the Infantry Divisions are employed at the front and the rest of them are moving that way. I've got lots of gaps in my front line and that's unsettling. As soon as they get caught up in converting hexes in my backfield, I'm going to use the small AT, MP, etc. units to construct a light screen at the very least. And I've got to do something about establishing some local reserves every 10 hexes or so along the front lines. I'd like to be able to use the Panzer divisions as the strategic reserve. This is round 7 of T13 and about half of the bombers are yellow/resting. I've lost 11.8K German Heavy Rifle Squads so far, I have 32.3K still assigned and 1.6K on hand so losses are light and the force is still in a go for for the gold state.
