Ijust got the event Axis Capture Leninggrad telling me I am getting a Finnish Corps with 3 Fin divisions.
Nothing on the map, the divisions are indeed in the Map theaterbox but I am not able to do anything with them. Also no Fin corps.
I tried the next turn but still the same.

Are they arriving after a fixed number of turns after the message ?

The 3 divs should appear on the map and be usable. Although the event text talks about a finnish Corps there no such transfer set up.

Note that it's chance per turn. There is also chance to miss those arrivals.

Axis Capture Leningrad
May happen between
1 December 1941 and
1 March 1942

If the Axis player holds both Leningrad and Terijoki between these turns there
is a 5% chance each turn that a one-off transfer of the 1 Finnish Corps (with
3 Finnish Infantry divisions) will occur. Once they arrive they are treated as
German units.

If the event already fired the units should be there.
BTW the manual and the actual event should get back in sync, in GC41 event starts on December 15 1941 with a 10% chance, not December 1st with 5% chance

Ah.

But where do they arrive? I think in one of the betas they arrived in Germany which is illogical, they should arrive around Leningrad.

Do they show up on the transfers and reinforcements report? If they do that will tell you the arrival hex.

Before the event fired the 3 divisions were listed in the Commander's report with TB as FI
Now they are TB at MAP

Thanks to the suggestion of First-Contact_Gamer, I did indeed checked and yes they are in the Reinforcements and Transfers schedule.

Event fired turn 27 and they shall arrive on turn 31 so yes the event can take some time and then you have to wait another 1 month. I will let you know once I am at turn 31 if all is OK and where they arrive.

Bloody Finns they are late, I am getting my ass kicked by Ivan so it is now that I need them ... stupid Mannerheim

Well by a bit of luck I captured Leningrad on the 9th Nov and its seems I will get the 3 Finnish DIVS on the 18th Jan.

However I don't see the Finnish 1st Korps anywhere in the reinforcement schedule also since I have decided to end this game as my Army is to badly mauled.

I tried to continue but it just gets worse, I pushed them to hard and thought a static defence line would hold it didn't.

Anyway this is screen shot of the time table so they do actually appear sadly this could be the only time I see them for some time.

They appear in Rostock on the Baltic coast north of Berlin.

Which is bit amusing, since if Axis have Leningrad, they should appear there. Cannot see us shipping 3 divisions to Rostock instead of marching 30 km through Isthmus...

But it is better for AI etc. I guess.

I thought so too! Maybe it was to allow for Leningrad being recaptured in the time before they appear.

If you are using enhanced TB then you can send them right back. The ground requirements are not reduced by Leningrad falling.

worth noting that even w/out enhanced control you can send units to a theatre - just can't recover them.

at some stage the Northern Theatre events need to be revised to be a bit more conditional

Rostock ? that makes no sense, that means you have to rail them back to Leningrad using valuable freight points.

Not only that the chances of getting 3 DIVS back to Leningrad in one go is unlikely and you will probable wont have enough points to unload them either.

Indeed, they should arrive NW of Leningrad.
