66 6/16/2017 1:58:00 PM Summer 1941 Axis Message plus the SUa in Kolomyja

I show 3 SUa in the RB.

For Replacements, I don't think you can stack 4 units in the Chelyabinsk space. But, I could be wrong. I don't think it is a special space in that regard; only that the Germans can't enter it.
I'm OK with 4 units there if you really want that. I just don't think it would be allowed by the rules as written.

Just to check the advance at Perekop vs Nikopol:

top die is Axis at 3+1 (5 shift left for swamp and river
bottom die is Soviet at 2s
56 6/15/2017 3:08:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message You are correct that CentFr in Konotop is in full supply now.

But, on Gorki... you might have found a rule that I'm not aware of. I believe that Gorki is indeed Axis because I moved through it... even OOS. I can't find any rule that says it isn't. So, I will assume that Gorki is Axis controlled; but feel free to point out the rule.

I flip Ge16 for the loss in Kaluga
55 6/14/2017 7:37:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Allied Action Round 5

50 6/13/2017 10:00:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Thanks, but I will keep my move the same.
49 6/13/2017 12:29:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message One more comment, in case it changes your move.

I was wrong:

Kubishev and Odessa are NOT out of supply. They can trace Limited Supply via Sevastopol.

Does that change your move?
48 6/11/2017 10:39:00 PM Summer 1941 Allied Message Sorry.

Gorki: Steppe moves to Penza, Ryazan, Tula.

Mozhaisk: Reserve moves to Moscow, Yaroslavi.

11 5/29/2017 2:24:00 PM June 1941 Axis Message The situation for WestFr is as you said, but , at Kaunus, the attack only got 5, 4 for loss factors.

Thus, you only retreat 1 space, after flipping.
If you retreat to Vilna, I will have to modify my advance at B-L or Kovel in order to cut you off.
If you retreat to Dvinsk or Riga, then my advance will be modified.

I am not sure which is better for you; they both have some advantages.

I will assume you retreat to Dvinsk, but you have alternatives.

If you retreat [NWFr] to Dvinsk, my advance is:
Ge16 + Ge18 -> Kaunus
Pz3 --> Minsk
Pz4 --> Vilna
Ge4+Ge9 -> Bialystok
Pz1 + Pz2 to Lublin
Ge6 -> Kovel.

But, feel free to retreat wherever you wish (1 space) with [NWFr] and I can adjust my advance.

If you do choose Dvinsk, you can proceed with your move.
10 5/29/2017 11:15:00 AM June 1941 Allied Message Damage to allies is 5.
