In the North I go for Archangelsk to stop lendlease. I am not sure if it is enough to cut the rail anyone know?
And another question. Shouldnt Leningrad be out of supply? It is not a 10 production city?

My BoA is almost over. Lost 2 subunits in 2 turns. But here at least a lucky strike sinking a CV.

There are some allied ships on the seas and given the propensity of my opponent to invade we will see if something happens this summer.

June 19 1942

And the invasion comes it is pretty big like 10 allied corps and divisions. Not sure how so much was possible but well done. I had foreseen this so I was getting ready but I was not completely ready but after my turn I have 13 corps in the area of which 6 are arm/mech. Total strength Italy Germany higher then all the allies together and I will send more units so I think there is hope to throw this back.

Havent learnt the mine rule so Allied access to the Baltic sucks as well as there seems to be something going on in the Med as well so exciting times ahead.

He didn't send much lend lease to the Sovs I am guessing.

Since the East Front is falling apart on him you can easily squash this with plenty to spare in the East. This game is pretty much over, imo. Your other match is another story, and will go the distance.

Well now there is 150 resources per turn but as will be seen the Archangel railroad is cut so there will be no more lendlease. But yes during 41 the subs were doing well so there was not that much to send I think. I managed like 20-40 in our other game. Most of the summer of 42 I havent sent any.

Yes this game looks difficult for the allies but they can rebuild and come back a couple of times maybe.

Other game way more exciting for sure.

In the North the railroad from Archangelsk is cut so I think there will be no more lendlease.

Still no one knows why Leningrad seems to be in supply? Should I post it as a possible bug? Or am I missing some kind of rule here?

And in the west the Empire strikes back (cue Star Wars music) and 2 allied corps march into captivity.

With more to come I am pretty sure. So given the situation I think the Axis can send way too much to the west so this invasion will fail andd would most likely lead to Eisenhower being fired. But given a more normal game with the east front in play this invasion could have been devastating so I need to look at my invasion defenses in the future.

July 17 1942

Another nice turn in the west with 6 allied corps leaving the map. Calais is retaken and it is looking mostly good. In Russia the Soviets try to infiltrate the lines here and there so I run around and try to chase them down but basically fighting in the east is now over. I will not go for full conquest happy just defending. Summer of 43 my only objective will be to capture Leningrad otherwise it is all about defense now.

Another turn more invasions now in France. But we have the units ready and it is no problem. Another round of crazy allied losses and icing on the cake the Ranger US CV is sunk 2 out of 5 are gone not totally hopeless .

Another turn more prisoners. My units are getting tired and there are some losses but I think I will be able to kick them all out just in time for the bad weather. Denmark will be the exception of course. Will have to try and deal with that in 1943.
I looks like I even eliminate the Supply trucks. Never seen anything like it before.

Argh I lost a mech corps and the turn before an arm corps. As said it has not been for free but I eliminate 5-6 units per turn and even if allied production is big it is not that big. Amsterdam falls as well so thats that. One corps left to destroy. Then rest and 1943 try to get Denmark back.

Here situation eastern front and forces per 31/7 1942.

Both on land and air the Axis are quite a bit stronger than the allies combined.

I use 4 mech units to round up the occasional Soviet army that advances too far.

Just wondering, what are your techs at?

I'm thinking port supply. They have stolen the research of the Philadelphia experiment and now can render their transports invisible.

October 9 1942

The Allies leave Copenhagen without a fight.

Attach tech as asked for. I dont any longer pursue the submarine war as long as they live they will sail but I dont care much.

Hmm maybe some bug. I think I recall Leningrad being out of supply before. Obviously the idea that supply ships sail all the way from Archangelsk which itself is cut off from the rail net seems a bit silly. I thought the road on the water was there to give Leningrad supply. If Leningrad is supposed to be constantly in supply it must be easier to make it a supply source?

THanks MM for the tech info.

Could be a bug, or just the way it was designed.

My 0.78 cents worth:
Ports are independent of each other. Capturing Archangelsk won't impact the port beside Leningrad.

"Ports generate 20 port supply stockpiles for every point of capacity they have.(p.47)" from the manual. Generate implies that there really isn't a delivery. Port interdiction with air and Naval units are the only way of reducing the theoretical delivery of a port supply source with a small chance of sinking a Merchant ship.

Mm I guess you are right. And the winter road was there for the Blizzard then maybe. I will have to see this winter if there are any signs of Leningrad defenders getting a bit tired.

Yes, because port supply stops when the port is frozen.

January 1 1943

In the east there is now a frontline. But I am behind the Volga it is mostly inf armies and yes I think they will have an hard time doing any serious damage.

My plan is still not to go on the offensive in 43 I probably just defend.

Leningrad still not showing any sign of being in any kind of supply problems. Port frozen and no friendly units nearby I dont quite understand it.

In Italy the defenses are being built up.

Axis forces still stronger than allied combined.

Leningrad is never going to go out of supply. You have to storm it. 3 mobile corps and as much air as you can spare to attack it on 3 sides. You should be able to do this in your situation. This is probably something that needs to be changed but so long as they have that port they cannot go out of supply.

February 26 1943

Not that much going on for the moment but suddenly the British decided to abandon the whole middle east so Germans and Italians start to divide the spoils.

On the forces can be seen even my 6 subs are gnawing away on the escorts. I dont think the allies are building any for the moment.
German army strength not far from 2000. USSR army strength also increasing but I am guess it is mostly inf armies and there is no air support and it is a long way from Kazan to Berlin so I am not that worried yet.

A frozen Port does not provide supply. With Leningrad the road of life kicks in. However, if you have it surrounded and the road cut off, then units cannot get supply. Because its on rail, its supply level is 9, and Russia being winterized, it doesn't receive the weather penalty. So it will have a minor increase in effectiveness.

But with road of life in German hands and the railroad not going anywhere isnt this something to be fixed? Have to be sure before pestering Alvaro again enough for today with the escorts debate

I'm Sorry, you've lost me. What needs to be fixed?

I should add to the pic above that the two units above are getting basic supply with no reinforcements. Also their effectiveness is not increasing. The inf unit had a 1% increase but I think that's because it's on rail and you have some decimal calculation being done.

Sorry I was maybe unclear, I mean I feel with the Baltic frozen and Road of life in German hands the troops should starve but it seems they do not. But ok if they are on Basic supply and dont recieve any reinforcements then that might be good enough

March 1943

In a cold turn I manage to get rid of a thorn in my side. After 10 grounstrikes and 12 landattacks Leningrad is mine.

That is very good as it frees up 5 air and 7 corps and a HQ for the summer.
