North to Central Russia Before.

The last two Russian armour present tempting targets and I have a fresh paratrooper (off map) in range to cut retreat.

SEPTEMBER 12, 1941

0 MS sunk and I take 2 U-Boat hits.

In Libya the British launch an attack on my Mechanized. But this leaves them weak for a counter attack. The plan is to attack the British Mechanized SE of my Mechanized to cause it to retreat. This will leave the Corps SE of Tobruk no place to retreat.

But that British Mechanized was a stubborn foe and refused to retreat even at 6:1 odds. It finally retreated at 11:1 odds. The Infantry Corps was dispatched and I had enough OPs for one final attack on the Mechanized. Surely it would shatter this time; but no, even at 14:1 odds it retreats again. Give all those men medals.

Unfortunately, I stupidly forgot to take any After screenshots of Russia. Suffice to say that Leningrad fell and the surrounded armour was destroyed. Otherwise, the Russians retreated just about everywhere and I chased them.

SEPTEMBER 26, 1941

My stupidity last turn of forgetting to take Russian screenshots was nothing compared to my stupidity this turn. I opened the turn to discover that the Russians had made a further large retreat. This time they even evacuated Moscow which was sitting open with no Russian units near. However, I was late for work so didn't have time to take my turn (other than chasing the Russian Fleet). So I saved the game. Except I didn't "save" the game, I ended my turn. Now hitting the "End Turn" button by mistake rather than the "Save" button my be excusable; but following that up by Confirming" the end of the turn is not. Of course, as soon as I "confirmed" I realized my error, but by then it was too late.

Oh well, other than chasing the Russians there wasn't much I planned on doing anyway.

OCTOBER 10, 1941

The Gods were with me; after my screwup last turn they saw fit to give me clear weather in the Arctic zone. So I was able to occupy Moscow after all.

0 MS sunk as my U-Boats are repositioning. Nothing happening in Libya.

Cold in the Arctic zone. I forgot to take after screenshots in Russia, but this is the Northern Map before my moves. I just advanced towards the Russians.

NOVEMBER 7, 1941

11 MS and an escort sunk; but I take 6 U-Boat hits. Hadros now has over 200 British MS; so there is no chance that I will reduce him below his critical level. Again no action in Libya. It has turned into a staring contest.

Cold weather in the Arctic zone In Russia. I concentrate on one small section of the Russian line East of Moscow and punch a hole while destroying 4 Russian Armies.

I need to figure out how to keep my armor as fresh as yours by this time. Normally I don't have many if any at or above 14...unless they were new.

Looks bad for Russia...and you are still holding in Libya...

One thing my normal opponent likes to do when Russia gets tight is invade Vichy NA or Portugal...but the Allies are all in in Libya...so that is not possible at the moment.

Another option...as you stated you will not sink enough MS to effect the UK...

You could sortie the Kriegsmarine surface fleet...

Start building one supply oiler every 4 turns and they can travel indefinitely.

IT is a little late though with the US about to join...and I do not know where the UK fleet is now.
But I have seen them sink 18 MS in one turn in a single lane. If multiple convoys could be heavier.


You do need some rain to get them out to sea and the UK fleet to be occupied with Uboats.


Randomly if a small carrier force is following them and you have Uboats nearby change them to fleet mode and fall behind the surface fleet. When he moves to attack you might get a lucky shot.


If you have plans for the surface fleet in the future then this is not the route to go...

I on the other hand can never understand why my opponent's armour is often so worn out by Late August or September 1941. I used to use a lot of supply trucks, but obviously don't anymore. Otherwise I assume everyone is doing the same as me which is:

1. Except in exceptional circumstances (such as the turn I encircled the large group of Russian units) always end your turn with all your armour within 5 hexes of an HQ.

2. Don't move or attack with your armour without a clear purpose. I don't hesitate to use armour to attack to punch a hole through enemy lines or in situations where I can surround and destroy enemy units. But generally speaking I don't waste my armour just to push back a strong enemy line a hex or two. Better to rest your armour, move your infantry up to the line; and then next turn use your infantry to make the first attacks and then your armour to punch through. There are exceptions such as certain situations in France and where the only way to capture an important objective (Leningrad or Moscow) requires it.

3. Set all your armour to priority replacements.

4. Set Reinforce/Upgrade to a high level to ensure that all of your armour get full replacements every turn and are upgraded to the highest possible tech level. If you find yourself starting a turn with several of your armour with less than 30 strength or less than the maximum tech level, than you are doing something wrong.

5. Use truck supply. Not a lot obviously, but I was using up an average of 18 trucks per turn on 3 of my armour every turn.

6. If a particular armour unit is getting worn, than rest it for a turn. Preferably on a rail line with a 9 supply level.

I think it looks bad for Russia too. But he is building back some of his strength. 1942 should be interesting.

I think the reason it is impossible is because Hadros does not have any Landing Ships. In our mirror game I (as the UK) have built 9 Landing Ships which I have used to invade Norway and Vichy North Africa. But with the shipyards I used to build those Landing Ships I could have built an extra 22.5 MS. I am glad I did as I did. But the loss of those MS is costing the UK about 30 production a turn.

I used to sortie with the German Fleet every game. But since the Rule change my experience is that the RN finds and sinks a high proportion of them within 1 to 4 turns. I usually limp home with half the fleet sunk and the other half damaged. I would rather keep the fleet in being as a threat.

NOVEMBER 21, 1941

10 MS sunk and no hits on my U-Boats as there are no escorts in the Pan Atlantic or African Coast where they are operating.

Libya is still quiet.

North Russia.
