WotY Attempt #1

Post by larryfulkerson »

Here's the face of war in the Kiev area currently. I have flown in alotta bombers
and I'm assigning them direct CS attacks on the largest Soviet stacks, especially
the red ones, and I'm bombarding the Kiev defenders for a couple of times before
any attacks go in and usually the target retreats and I gain another hex. It's
slow work and I don't want to take shortcuts because that means more losses.

I just now did a saved game and I thought I'd share what I have with you guys so
you can check stuff out, the dialogs and the reports etc. It's my T20 mid-turn
save game file. There's no password.

Here's what happens when you leave an HQ unit on the front lines. As long as he
leaves it there the more damage it's going to take if I have anything to do with it.

Here's an element of the 318th Security Regiment making their way to their next
assembly point where they will screen one flank of a search and destroy mission
near Smolensk. They have been taking 5 minute breaks every hour or so and nobody
is falling behind and they have another hour and a half to go.

Here's a report on the 318th Regiment, the unit that had the element in the above
image. It's had a hard knock and needs some rest and refit. I'll have to find
someone to occupy it's hex(es) and move it to the rear to a good supply area. I
need to set up a supply / rest camp for all the tired front line units, with a
dedicated HQ unit and everything.

Larry's challenge in this scenario in order to become Wargamer of the Year is to make it to 1943 in better shape than the Germans [did] historically. This version should have all kinks worked out and be a real challenge which Larry has assured me he is up for.
That sounds like a challenge. WotY is pretty up there. Wow. Practice makes perfect I guess. I'll give it the old industrial college try.

Well that's one way to try and keep you from chronically restarting around the 1st winter every time.

I forced a river crossing into the Crimea. Now I need to drive to the other crossings
and clear them so the follow on forces can follow on. I'm going to use all the Rumanians
in the Crimea and I'm going to assault Sevastopol with the 11th Army's units.

Here's the northern front lines currently. I sank the Soviet BB's and their escorts.
Now I'm trying to conter all the Soviet aircraft units near the Leningrad area and
there's a lot of them. I'm going to have to fly some more fighters up here because
this area is lousy with Soviet fighters. The supply level in the north is still okie
dokie and operations can continue for now. The German ships are going to Helsinki to
refuel and refit. I'm debating with myself whether or not to let the ships repair a
bit before I tackle the CD guns near Leningrad itself. I need the support of the ships
to take the city, I'm fairly convinced, so I'll have to deal with the CD guns. Maybe
if I bombard them from the air several turns it'll soften them up a tad bit.

Here's what it looks like around Smolensk and I've just captured the supply point at
Smolensk so it looks like there's two more further to the east that I'll need to grab.
I'm fortunate that the railroad has been advancing almost fast enough in this area.
As soon as the rail is up to the front line I'm going to see if I can't get a line
heading south from Smolensk somewhere.

This is the south currently and the supply level could be better but it's good enough
for reduced tempo operations. Pretty soon we'll be up against both rivers and it'll
be time to fight over the river crossings again. About 30% of what the Axis is doing
is fighting over river crossings. Shoot, move, and communicate...that's what they are
busy doing all over the map.

The railhead is almost at Kiev already and I'm going to start repairing south from there.
See if I can't get some supply to these folks near D-town.

Here's a zoom-out of the front lines in T21 before I have moved anybody. I'll post
a bigger one on the next post below.

Here's a spot where the Soviets are slowly gaining the upper hand and unless I do
something about it there's going to be a hole in my front lines before too long.

Here's a small element of the 126th Infantry Division making their way to
the CP which has been moved into a small Soviet office just down the street.
They have converted a Soviet resturant into a chow hall and these men are
going to have a hot meal soon. It's overcast and may start raining later in
the afternoon. It's August 31, 1941 and that means it's humid and hot.

Here's the northern front lines currently. I'm using Helsinki to refuel and
refit the ships and now that the Soviet ships are gone I have redistributed
the Ju-87 squadrons throughout the northern half of the map because they are
really effective on tanks and mechanized or motorized units and if I can get
the Stukas to support the attacks on stacks that have tanks in them maybe I
will make better progress faster. Which is not to say that there's no Soviet
tanks in the south half of the map, I'm just concentrating on the road to
Moscow right now.

I posted that bad boy in the wrong thread, sorry for the confusion.
On the other hand it could just be some psyops program running.
