Leningrad again

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: The German-Soviet War 1941-1945 is a turn-based World War II strategy game stretching across the entire Eastern Front. Gamers can engage in an epic campaign, including division-sized battles with realistic and historical terrain, weather, orders of battle, logistics and combat results.

The critically and fan-acclaimed Eastern Front mega-game Gary Grigsby’s War in the East just got bigger and better with Gary Grigsby’s War in the East: Don to the Danube! This expansion to the award-winning War in the East comes with a wide array of later war scenarios ranging from short but intense 6 turn bouts like the Battle for Kharkov (1942) to immense 37-turn engagements taking place across multiple nations like Drama on the Danube (Summer 1944 – Spring 1945).

Leningrad again

Post by JeremyB »

I'm a bit of a beginner so this might sound silly but

is there anything that prevents the German from simply bombing the port of Osinovets untill it reaches 100% damage and then simply ag the isolated units in Leningrad instead of bashing its way through the major river? I cannot see the Soviet airforce preventing this...
Did I miss something?

No, it's pretty simple to do. I had FTF opponents taking Leningrad on turns 4 or 5 basically using this method. It's gotten harder to achieve that early since the HQBU rules were changed but it does still seem to be the way that a lot of German players that I play against on the server take Leningrad fairly easily. I'm surprised it's not discussed more on the forums.

Okay...

Is there any coutermeasure? Attaching AA units to Osinovets? How does one do that? The rules say it's feasile but I haven't figured out how to do it...
