In a recent online game, I kept track of the supply level of Russian cities and towns as they were captured by my Axis forces. Here's a few of the results: Orsha 5 supply, Kiev 4 supply, Dnepropetrovsk 4 supply, Kherson 4 supply, Gomel 5 supply. I did encounter a few exceptions, Leningrad 2 supply, Moscow 3 supply. But for the most part I was barely slowed by lack of supply.
Currently, against a good player, the Russians can't survive without multiple harassing Allied attacks in 42 and a second front in 43. I think the problem is that the Germans can drive all the way to Moscow or Stalingrad without much regard to supply problems.
I know the Scorched Earth issue was addressed a few patches ago, however I think the problem still exists. Perhaps the game could be adjusted such that all Russian cities and towns are captured at 1 or 2 supply.
