Yes this game is done, the snowball effect has already started. I have no more enough land units. I have build too much air units pre-war.
I should have build land units... Lessons learned.
It looks like to me the Germans have not suffered during summer and winter 1941.
They are fresh for a 1942 summer campaign on the whole front.
I am fighting in North Africa with UK and in the Atlantic. But, I am not in position to perform an invasion of Italy or anything else to distract the Germans.
And with the changes going into Beta 9U7, the Allies should not be in position to perform early Europe invasions now.
Germans must be strong in summer, I have no problem with this. The thing is I do not see the Russians strong in winter to fight.
Right now, even a Russian local counter attack on an exposed Pz corps reduces Red army effectiveness to the point that the front line is exploded the next turn.
In fact, the solution is not to fight at all, just withdraw. So, the Red army gains few experience in summer 1941 to counter a strong 1942 summer offensive.
I do not even speak of winter 1941 to gain experience since all attacks are doomed by the bad odds even for winterized countries.
I will continue to fight but I am quite pessimistic
