Nice to see the USSR winning.

Not seen this since the patch.


Looks to be bad for the Axis losing so many armor.


Yes, and the destruction continues this turn.

AUGUST 28, 1942

7 MS and an escort sunk along with 6 U-Boat hits. I gained 20 UK MS this turn, so now have 127. I gain another 30 over the next 2 turns. But then I won't gain anymore for several months.

In Italy I forgot to take an After Screenshot (though I could have sworn I did). So the black lines show my movements. I attacked the German Armour once at 2:1 odds and of course it held.

I counterattacked a Mechanized unit with by now predictable results. With each attack I prayed that the stupid unit would save itself and retreat; but of course it didn't.

A Miracle happens in Italy. A German Armour survives not just one, but two possible Shatters.

SEPTEMBER 25, 1942

8 MS and an escort sunk. But the RN sinks its second U-Boat and inflicts 2 additional hits.

Meanwhile, the US maritime patrol bomber locates its first U-Boat pack after several turns of fruitless searching and scores.... 0 hits. Never Again will I build one of these.

As the summer winds down the Russians finally launch a limited offensive. But I forgot to take any screenshots.

In Italy, more German mobile forces make an appearance and push back the British Mechanized unit which luckily escapes Shattering.

On my turn I destroyed the Italian unit on the Mountain on the hex on the East end of the line (but again forgot to take a screenshot).

October 9, 1942

Cold/Clear weather on most of the Russian Front and Russian mobile units finally attaining 7 OPs, means that the Russians launch an offensive near Voronezh and SW of Moscow. Nothing significant, but a few Axis units are pushed back or reduced.

The North Part of the Russian Front after my Moves.

In the BOA, 5 MS and an escort are sunk, but so is a U-Boat (#3 for those who are counting).

Rain in Italy means no attacks for either side. But take notice of the Axis units adjacent to my British Corps on the West side of Italy. My British unit is in the mountains, but I expect it might be attacked next turn. I have an American TAc bomber and a British Medium bomber (off map) ready to support if it is attacked.

OCTOBER 23, 1942

7 MS sunk and 6 U-Boat hits.

My British Corps is attacked, a total of 8 times. My recollection is that the first attack was at 2-1 odds and all subsequent attacks were at least as good or better. Yet my unit only took a total of something like 6 hits and refused to retreat, even though not set to hold. the screenshot below is a bit confusing as I didn't think to take it until after I moved my British corps out and replaced it with a fresh one.

The German 7 strength armour will obviously be the initial target of my counter attack.

As you can see below my attacks are far more successful than my opponents. But I really don't know why. The naval bombardment was obviously a big factor in all the hits scored in the last 2 attacks. But why did my initial 4:1 attack on his armour score more hits in 1 attack than his 8 attacks did on my infantry. And why did I not take a single hit in any of the last 3 combats? Perhaps Leadership and air power are more important than I thought. I really don't know. Does any one?

NOVEMBER 6, 1942

9 MS sunk and only 1 U-Boat hit scored.

Rain in Italy halts the Allied offensive.

NOVEMBER 20, 1942

All U-Boats are in port, so no MS sunk. Hurrah!

Rain in Italy means our units sit again. However, during the Axis turn the Italian air force sinks the Canadian DD in harbour. The surprising thing is that the air unit that intercepted the Italians for their first 2 attacks was my US escort fighter based in Malta (off screen). The RAF fighter did not intercept any of the attacks even though it was set to auto and in range. I have seen something similar happen numerous times. In this case no big deal as all the remaining Italian attacks missed the mark. But at times this can be very frustrating.

In Russia cold weather means the Russians again go on the attack. This time the plan is to retreat the 2 indicated units leaving the German Infantry corps with nowhere to retreat

The Plan works. But at least this time the German infantry corps made me work for it rather than Shattering on the first attack.

The second stage of the offensive is to retreat the 2 units circled in purple so that the two Axis units circled in Green will have no place to retreat.

The Plan works and the German Panzer is Shattered. But again at least it was more difficult than previously.

DECEMBER 4, 1942

8 MS and an escort sunk, but 12 U-Boat hits are scored. I counted 9 operational U-Boats this turn, so since I sunk 3 that means Hadros built at least 9 (to go with the 3 he starts with).

Snow in Russia, so no attacks.

But Clear weather in Italy means the Allies again resume their march up the Italian boot. I was tempted to attack Naples, but my initial attack odds were only 1-2. So instead I attacked towards Taranto. Taranto is generally easier than Naples because it can be invaded from 2 hexes (of course I will have to wait until Spring) and the defensive multiplier is not as large.

Well looking bad for the Axis...not sure what they have left in Russia...probably a decent force that will be okay come spring to at least put up a fight...
But Italy will fall very soon and that make is really rough.

A few observations...fighter wise...and I don't think this would have been it but was the American fighter better in efficiency?
Escort is close to Intercept early on...Al said that the system checks all fighters and picks the strongest one. Though I could swear I have seen the issue you are showing displaying in the past also...wondering why fighter A flew now fighter B...

You appear to be about a year ahead in your attacks in the Med and Russia...I could be off a bit in Russia...
Do you see this as a game problem? I see Russia as okay...but being able to invade Italy a year early seems off...NOT saying you did anything wrong but gamewise.
I know you don't like to invade Portugal...I opted to invade Spain which is actually tougher and left Portugal neutral. To me that seems a bit more "fair".
Then again I did paradrop into Milan and the Italians surrendered then. But Russia was lost at the time. I need more experience in Russia to at least last into 43 in a decent position. But as you know it takes a lot of turns to get there.

Russia wise you have a LOT of tanks. Not sure how to afforded them. I normally can barely keep enough money for an infantry a turn which is pretty much required in 41/42...to just stay ahead. Did you save up a ton of PP and then buy tanks as 41 ended so that you would have them for 42? I normally built them at the beginning of the war but they are so expensive for a weak unit initially and repairing is just not on the Russian monetary track.

The new shatter rules might be huge for Germany...a lot of the units you killed would be coming back for Spring...which is something that the Germans really need in the game you are playing. Will be interesting to see if that causes any new long term issues.

It wasn't just that the escort fighter was used for the first two interception attempts, but that the RAF interceptor did not intercept at all.

Do you mean in terms of the game being unbalanced? If so, then no I don't. It is not unbalanced because I am winning this game as the Allies and it is not unbalanced because I won the other game as the Axis. I think what it shows is an imbalance in the skills of the two players. Hadros is a good player, but I think I am the better player. To be fair I think I have also been the luckier player, at least in these two games.

I was able to invade Italy a year early because Hadros, IMHO, did not defend Libya with as much Force as he should have and he did not defend FNA at all. He tried the ALL-IN on Russia strategy. This is not necessarily wrong, but one of the consequences is that the Allies will be invading somewhere in 42.

The Russians start with 3 armour corps and I built 3 more as my very first builds on the first turn of the game. The Russians then receive 1 more with the Siberian Reinforcements. I have played the whole game so far with these 7 armour. If you upgrade them to 41 tech and buff them with elite status they will have strengths in the 9 to 12 range or so in 1941.

You are absolutely right. It will be interesting to see what effect this has.

I agree, the same happened to me with latest official patch. I will report the landing ships for mechanized units. This also helps the Allies to be in Italy faster.

Nice AAR I enjoy the reading.
