I've just discovered to my horror that there are several models of aircraft that I'm no longer building. And some of them are down to their last dozen or so aircraft in the unit. The Soviets are coming at me 50+ at a time so these bad boys wouldn't last long in that environment so I think I'll let them do CAP's at the rest area's and important river crossings and places where the supply line is traced down a rail that crosses the river, etc. Also, alas, I'm having a lot of my fighters being transfered to the Western Front. They are needed for defense against the British and American bombers. The British concentrate on night bombing and the USAAF attacks during daylight hours so that Germany is getting hit day and night. The German planes are badly outnumbered on the Western Front and badly need a hand. Higher command thinks things are going rather well on this front and all those planes will not be missed ALL THAT MUCH. But I on the other hand, think that all that equipment is going to create a dip in the force I can project and it's going to give aerial superiority to the Soviets all that much sooner. Lately the Soviets have been doing airfield strikes on my fields and I find that I need more AAA assets on those fields than currently exists. Also, the Soviets are counterattacking with fury and making holes in my lines already and that's getting annoying. The fact is that the Soviets have gathered so many troops together finally, that they now outnumber my troops in more spots than before. I'm running into having to use light shields instead of front lines more and more often. I need a reserve more than ever now. Still trying to shuttle the Panzer units to the reserve areas behind the lines but most of them are still fully employed.

Want to know how to make an anthropologist mad? Just hand him a used tampon and ask him what period it came from. Paleolithic, Precambrian, etc.
