Hey Golden dude: You're making good progress but on the other hand I see that a LOT of your units are cherry red so you must be pushing them hard. Do you have a supply level target for when to rest them? Maybe a better question would be: do you ever rest them at all?
Essentially the answer is no. So far I'm not overextended- it's at that point that I start to slow down and become more cautious. My view is while it's not ideal to be on low supply, it's even worse to be out of supply- so if I can push my units harder and cut off more Soviet pieces then I will.
Because I more or less only fight when the enemy is cut off and I have a flank bonus and buckets of artillery, my losses are actually pretty low- those red health units are low on supply but largely full in terms of equipment.
Are you concentrating your aircraft around the highest priority areas, those areas where your advance has the higher priority?
Up to this point it hasn't really been necessary to concentrate air, but that's changing and as Soviet air resistance concentrates around my drive to Moscow I start to draw fighters off from other fronts to there. Because most Luftwaffe bomber units have good range, it's not really necessary to redeploy them, but new units that come in mostly go towards AGC.
I'd like to see a zoomed out view of the front lines from time to time to get a gauge of the general progress overall, if you would be so kind. What is the general overall condition of your aircraft? What would you characterize your losses so far?
I'll try to add some more screenshots to cover these generalities. In general losses are manageable, see the detail given at turn 8. I normally rest my air units when they get to orange throughout the turn, but at this stage it's not necessary to rest more than about half of my bombers on any given turn.
I like the way you play and I appreciate the map graphics you're using. I'm using the "boardgame pastels" and my map looks appreciably different but your graphics seems to emphasize the terrain to a higher degree and that adds to the immersion. I like that. Keep up the good work.
Thanks. I'm pretty sure these are the TOAW IV defaults, haven't yet figured out if I can restore the classic TOAW graphics as I prefer those.
