July 6, 1941
Eastern Ladoga ports didn’t get any supplies again. Need to submit a bug report, but this week many other sites should be near full, so I’m interested to see if they’re ignored again.
Build 3 forts to help secure the Leningrad perimeter.
28th Tank Div is pulled to re-org and will return in 28 weeks as 28th TD.
Another Tank Division in the Courland pocket is destroyed, but 2 rifle divisions, 1 mech division, and a security regiment are flushed from the pocket to Estonia with the two Corps HQ that had been in the Courland pocket.
Axis must isolate the port to prevent this escape.
6th Pzr Div is relieved by an infantry division, with 3/8th Pzr Rgt looping around to isolate 182nd Rifle Div.
1st Pzr Div break down to cover left flank of the Motorized salient.
182nd Rifle Div and 83rd NKVD security regiment link up to cut off the German mechanized salient again.
3rd Motorized Bde snips the last avenue and it looks like all the German mech is without resupply again this week. :)
Russian infantry under 27th Army cross the Velikaya and descend upon 3/1st Pzr Rgt, forcing a retreat.
They pull back to cover the hills west of Velikaya, and resume positions on the river line in place of the tank divisions that take up spots in the light woods east of the river line.
8th, 11th, 22nd, and 27th Army are now each at 21 Command Points, with the corps HQs under them still being heavily utilized.
Militia raised at Leningrad are moved to cover the ground in front of Novgorod and assigned to Luga Army to continue refit.
8th Army assumes command of the units that routed from Courland and they take up positions in Parnu and Tallinn to refit. The security screen is pulled back a little bit, but we don’t expect much movement this direction with the mechanized units isolated and Riga still in Soviet hands.
