Roll three dice. The Russian transfers a leader plus Units equal to the least of the three rolls to this Foreign War card. Another Unit draft is rolled and filled from the Turn's Reinforcements - or elsewhere - in each Interphase until the War ends. Void if Turkey is Client of Russian Camp.

Message from France:
assuming a resource roll is due here is the roll
701 10/5/2017 9:30:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message the actual loss numbers are 3/2 v 2/0 so a rout occurs and the number of losses exceed the number of Br SPs and leader so I get a free flag. However the language of 11.5 is a bit unclear as the question of whether I get to roll for a resource is unclear. I will defer to Pleva for his opinion on this as to the definition of casualty in regards to the below:

11.5 ROUT
A victor inflicting at least three more casualties than he suffered (regardless of the Round(s) in which they were inflicted), causes a rout. All routed disrupted Units/leaders are eliminated. If the
routed Formation was an Army or Army Group the victor rolls a die. If the die roll is less than or equal to the printed Battle Rating of the routed Commander the victor gains a Resource (16). Note that elimination of the opposing Army/Army Group in itself is insufficient to allow a possible Resource gain; a Rout must occur. A routed Army/Army Group cannot generate more than one
Resource gain per Impulse.

And
11.3 CASUALTY RESOLUTION
Losses are simultaneous. Each 6 die roll kills an
enemy Unit instantly. Each 5 die roll disrupts one
for the duration of the battle. Kill results take priority over disrupts if there are insufficient Units/leaders to absorb all hits. Record casualties by moving the Camp dice markers along the Casualty Display on the Battleground Chart.

All may chip in here
700 10/5/2017 9:19:00 AM 1809-1810 France Message sorry its Davout - I always send Soult to Spain in other games but here he moved to the East and Davout magically reappeared in Paris so he went instead. Habit overcomes reality.
699 10/5/2017 9:16:00 AM 1809-1810 Britain Message French/Spanish lose 2
Brits lose 4.

BTW. Is it Soult or Davout?

A leader of your choice is affect by this die roll: 1-2: lose one battle die for this Impulse, 3-5: void Battle Rating for this Impulse, 6: leader eliminated. The affected leader cannot be replaced in a current battle by a subordinate. Already rolled battle-dice cannot be lost. An Army/Army Group whose Commander has lost his Battle Rating can still intercept/evade, but must do so without his leadership modifier.

If Napoleon is present, you may commit the Imperial Guard after seeing all other battle dice. Roll four more battle dice. Besides inflicting hits, rally a disrupted French Unit for each "4" rolled by the extra dice. Only Napoleon's presence at some point during the battle is required, not his well-being. RESERVE

I don't see enough value to taking another card. It will just let Pete do the same. Or play his home card next and still get last play.

628 9/19/2017 10:12:00 PM 1807-1808 Russia Message My gut says to not draw a card. However, I just got a card from Britain so I would draw a card if you guys felt it was important to do so...
627 9/19/2017 9:11:00 PM 1807-1808 Austria Message If you draw Pete will still get the last play

If you dont he gets one more play (with a + if he likes)

Depends on what damage you think he can do with one more play. If you think you will need to respond (or if you expect an opportunity to develop) then draw. If you think you can weather one play with minimal damage then pass.
I dont think he can take Vienna. With a little luck I can stop him in Budapest so the eastern keys are safe.
Depends on what you see around Zurich/Munich I think.
