162 2/28/2021 2:46:00 PM Turn 6 Germans Message Notes for PGG turn 6 German move:
Soviet interdiction at 0120 creates supply problems for the Germans. The following spaces with German units are not 20 movement points from the western map edge and will have movement cut in half for the German initial movement phase of turn 6.
1728, 1825, 2025, 1823, 1923, 2023, 2124, 2719, 3213, 3012 and 2410. Note that the road movement rate along the Orsha to Smolensk road helps many of the mechanized units still be in supply because of the 20 movement points. The Lehr unit at 3213 and the 7th Pz div at 3012 are just one movement point shy of 20 movement points using this road. This is not so generous for the infantry units as the road movement rate for them is 1 point vs point for mechanized. So the infantry at 2410 is out of supply. Also because of the lack of good roads and the rivers, many of the units South of Smolensk are also out of supply. I put these notes here because I haven't been able to copy and paste into Vassal and this is a better log anyway.
161 2/28/2021 7:28:00 AM Turn 6 Soviets Message No combats. Interdiction placed to cause 13.44 problems.
160 2/28/2021 7:27:00 AM Turn 6 Soviets Edit Notes Soviets: from to Interdiction placed once
Germans: from to
159 2/28/2021 7:09:00 AM Turn 6 Soviets Message You have broken through so much that there is no way I can put any sort of front together. However I can perhaps construct some defences around key locations and mess with your supply.

156 2/27/2021 11:46:00 AM Turn 5 Germans Message I resolved the A1 in my last move file and split the division up into 3 parts. Now we should be able to move on to turn 6 if I my last moves were OK.
155 2/26/2021 11:58:00 AM Turn 5 Soviets Message D2/A1

You need to resolve the A1 part.

My rule of thumb if you need to A1 against a known defender with a 2 or 3 piece unit is to generally:

split up into as many separate hexes as possible and

the weaker unit is on its own in the easternmost valid retreat hex.

Message from Soviets:
>Overrun against the unsupplied Soviet unit at 2116 by the 18th Pz. 8 attack vs the halved Soviet unit. D1 goes to 2016. D2 will retreat it 2117 and then 2016. I'll let you resolve this final overrun before finishing my move

2116 is a 4-5-6. 8:2 becomes 4:1.


153 2/25/2021 3:42:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message I'm attempting one final overrun mostly to reveal one of the Smolensk defenders before sending my final mech moves. Look these over and check to see if I did them correctly.
152 2/25/2021 3:22:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message The 4 roll on the 2-1 gives a D1/A1 result which finally eliminates the 258th 6-8-6 unit but retreats the 4th Pz which I will spread out.

Message from Germans:
The last overrun against the 258th failed with a 5 roll on the 1-1 so I moved the GD regiment behind and ran the 4th Pz division down to attempt a 2-1 overrun again against this strong unit. 8 attack vs 8 defense which is halved to 4 defense (halved and surrounded again) makes this a 2-1.
150 2/25/2021 3:07:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message Well, the 5 roll on the 1-1 gives an A1 and the 14th Mech division will retreat. You will want them split up and if you retreat them North and Northeast, then the 258th will have a retreat route for now.

Message from Germans:
1-1 overrun attempt roll for the 14th Mech division against the Soviet 258th isolated and surrounded in 1925. 5 attack factors vs 4 defense = 1-1.
148 2/25/2021 2:46:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message A 3 roll on the 5-1 gives a D2 result which eliminates the Soviet 1-3-6 and the 14th mechanized div continues.

Message from Germans:
Finally, in German Mech move 2 file, the 14th mechanized division moved to 1923 and attempts an overrun of the 158th Soviet inf div 1-3-6 which is unsupplied and surrounded by ZOC and halved, rounded down to 1 defense. This roll is for that 5-1 overrun.
146 2/25/2021 2:38:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message The 5 roll gives an Eng result which gives the 20th Pz a step loss and eliminates the 171st Soviet 3-8-6.

Message from Germans:
It would help if I asked for a die roll instead of just sending a message.
This roll is for that 2-1 overrun attempt against the 171st.
144 2/25/2021 2:35:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message Next, 20th Pz division moves down to 1920 and tries an overrun against the 171st Soviet infantry in 2019 which is isolated and surrounded by ZOC. 8 to 4 gives a 2-1. This roll is for that 2-1 overrun attempt.
143 2/25/2021 2:14:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message Well, the one result that I didn't want happened and we have a De/A1 and I will retreat and spread out the SS DR division for the A1. 24th Soviet army HQ is eliminated at least.

Message from Germans:
Beginning the German mechanized movement of turn 5. The 18th motorized division ran around the East part of Smolensk and surrounded the 24th Soviet army HQ and the 171st rifle division. Then I am activating the SS DR division to attack the now isolated 24th army HQ in 1921. This will be an 8-1 attack which will remove the 24th HQ but may give an A1 result on a roll of 3. This roll is for that overrun attack.
141 2/25/2021 9:28:00 AM Turn 5 Germans Message Finally taking the 5 VP credit for Mogilev.

139 2/25/2021 8:46:00 AM Turn 5 Germans Message The retreat from 1822: The first hex must be 1923 and the second hex will be 2023.
138 2/25/2021 3:31:00 AM Turn 5 Soviets Message First hex of D2 has to be 1922 but you need to specify the 2nd.

Message from Soviets:
D1/A1 and Eng. I have left it to you to make the Eng German removal.

>9th combat will be against the untried Soviet infantry in 1822 by the 14th motorized divison (10 factors) and the GD motorized regiment (4 factors) which also negates the river defense bonus. A total of 14 factors vs ? The soviet unit may be unsupplied if the 8th attack retreats the 24th army HQ.

1822 is a 2-3-6. OOS as Zoc in 1922 blocs line of communications. 14:1 puts on the rightmost column again.

Message from Soviets:
>7th combat will be against the untried Soviet infantry in 1824 by the 10th motorized division. 12 factors vs the soviet which is out of range of Soviet leaders and halved. On that 7th combat, D1 retreats to 1925, D2 to 1926. You can specify A1 and A2 retreats.

1824 is a 6-8-6 so 12:4 is 3:1


>8th combat will be against the untried Soviet infantry and 24th army Hq in 1821 by the SS DR division (18 factors) and the 29/12 and 5/12 (6 more factors) for a total of 24 attack factors. Both Soviet units are supplied and full strength but this should be at least a 2-1. D1 will retreat to 2020, D2 retreats to 2121.

1921 actually is a 1-3-6 plus the (2) leader makes the calculation 24:5, so 4:1

Message from Soviets:
Again both cleared.

>5th combat will be against the untried and isolated Soviet infantry in 2615 by the 19th Pz division (14 factors) and the 18th motorized division (12 factors) for a total of 26 factors vs ?

2615 is a phantom 0-0-6

>6th combat will be against the untried and isolated Soviet stack in 1718 by the 20th Pz division (16), 5th, 35th and 161st infantry divisons (9 factors each) and 3rd Pz divison (14 factors) for a total of 57 factors vs ?

1718 is a 3-4-6 and a 3-5-6. Just one roll needed. Well not exactly needed, but I'm typing into a die roll box. 57:4 is again on the 10:1 column.

Message from Soviets:
I think it is best to assume that until we possibly get to slugging it out over VP cities, I assume you will always take A1 and A2 as retreats unless you state otherwise.

>3rd combat will be against the untried and isolated and surrounded Soviet infantry unit in 2409 by the 26th infantry division and the 7th armor division for 25 factors vs ? halved and then doubled for woods.

2409 is a 2-4-6. 25: 4 becomes 6:1.

>4th combat will be against the untried and isolated Soviet infantry in 2212 by the 18th Pz division, 90/20, 29/17 and 63/17 units for 25 factors vs ?

2212 is another 2-4-6 so 25:2 becomes a roll on the 10:1 column.
133 2/25/2021 3:03:00 AM Turn 5 Soviets Message That clears both but you have an A1 on the first.

Message from Soviets:
I'll batch these in pairs.

>1st Combat will be at 0426. Attacking units: 10th Pz (14 factors), 1st Cav (4 factors), 23rd Infantry (9 factors) for a total of 27 factors against the untried Soviet infantry which is halved for being isolated and doubled in the woods. This should be 3-1 or better.

0426 is a 4-4-6 so 27: 4 becomes 6:1

>2nd combat will be the 137th infantry, 263rd infantry, 15/29 (which negates the river bonus) and the 71/29 for a total of 24 factors against the untried and isolated Soviet unit in 0425. This should be at least a 6-1.

0425 is a 3-4-6 so 24:2 puts it on the 10:1 column

131 2/23/2021 6:01:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message I'm sending the turn 5 finishing initial moves and the 9 combats of the German combat phase. I have broken thru North of Smolensk but the South line held me back for this initial movement phase.
130 2/23/2021 2:12:00 PM Turn 5 Soviets Message D1 eliminates the defender.

>18th Motorized division moves to 1915 and attempts an overrun against the unsupplied Soviet infantry unit in 2014. 6 attack factors doubled and then halved back to 6 vs the soviet unit which is halved.

2014 contains a 4-5-6, so that halves to 2. 6:2 becomes 3:1.
128 2/22/2021 9:36:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message I am sending a move file that will attempt one more overun. This may be about the last overrun - maybe one more this movement phase.

Message from Germans:
Continuing the German movement of turn 5, the Lehr unit moves around to 2512 behind the 30th HQ unit. Next two units of the 17th Pz (39/17 4-10 and the 40/17 2-10) move from 2010 to 2311 and conduct an overrun of the 30th HQ unit in 2411. 8 movement factors counting the 3 to overrun. 6 attack factors halved to 3 vs 3 defense which is now surrounded and out of supply and halved rounded down to 1 defense makes this a 3-1 attack. This roll is for that attack.
126 2/22/2021 8:36:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message And the 4th Pz will retreat to 1819 as a whole as it is the only retreat path.
125 2/22/2021 5:53:00 PM Turn 5 Soviets Message A1. Haven't moved your unit but I think 1819 still stacked together is the only retreat destination.

THE DIE ROLL IS FOR 2nd OVERRUN:

>4th Pz moves to 1920, 5 movement points + 3 to attempt an overrun against the untried Soviet unit in 2019. 8 attack factors vs ?. This time the Soviet unit is a full strength as it is supplied.

2019 is a 3-8-6. Sturdy unit? *:8 so 1:1
123 2/22/2021 5:40:00 PM Turn 5 Soviets Message For some reason I put Remezov on the 6 slot for reinforcements not 5.
122 2/21/2021 3:01:00 PM Turn 5 Germans Message Good moves on your turn 5 reinforcements.
Two small items:
1. I list only 4 rifle divisions and one armor entering on turn 5 at X. If this is correct, you need to put one of the rifle divisions at 5508 back and leave only 2 there.
2. You evacuated Remezov the 13th army HQ 4-10 unit on turn 4 so he could enter on turn 5 at X and could rail free to Vyazma or you could put him anywhere else he could get to or even enter him later if you want.
I'm sending the first part of my turn 5 German movement and will attempt two overruns initially.

Message from Soviets:
>12th Pz will attempt an overrun of the unit in 1715. 9 movement points to get to the overrun. If successful, he will move to 1815 after the automatic advance. If an A1 result, you can retreat him. Consider the 20th Pz move to occur before this overrun.

1715 holds a 1-1-6. 8:1 odds.
116 2/19/2021 10:50:00 AM Turn 4 Germans Message I sent the final movement for the TN4 German mechanized movement. Note that several German units used the road movement rate to get into their positions. There is one more overrun attempt against the unit at 1715. Also note that several of your units are out of supply for being out of range of HQ units like the two armor units at 1727 and 1730 as well as many infantry across the board and their movement points are halved. Also note that I will leave the German air interdiction markers where they are to slow the incoming army as they can't do much against the units already at Vyazma.
115 2/19/2021 3:29:00 AM Turn 4 Soviets Message That's a DE so everything successful but one A1 result.

2110 contains a strong one: 5-8-6. Halved then doubled to stay at 8. 1:1


>19th Pz continues his move into 1515 and conducts another overrun attempt against the unit in 1614. 7 attack factors vs the halved untried Soviet infantry unit.

1614 contains a 3-3-6. 7:1


111 2/18/2021 3:15:00 PM Turn 4 Germans Message 3 more overrun attempts in this 3rd Mech movement phase for you to resolve against untried Soviet units and then there will probably be one more.
110 2/18/2021 2:52:00 PM Turn 4 Germans Message This results in a D2 which eliminates the 143rd Soviet infantry and the 19th Pz continues his move.

Message from Germans:
In the middle of German Mech movement turn 4 part 3, the 19th Pz division will attempt an overrun of the 143 Soviet infantry in 1414 from 1415 since I know it is a 1-3-6. The 90/20 Mech unit moved to 1413 to cut off its retreat. The 3 defense is halved and rounded down to 1 so this is a 7-1 attack.
108 2/18/2021 2:07:00 PM Turn 4 Soviets Message I think this works well in this format. More thought goes in to moves than face to face play and the interrupts for combat and overrun are reasonable, especially if taken in batches of resolutions that are essentially independent of each other.
107 2/18/2021 2:06:00 PM Turn 4 Soviets Message D2 for all of them.

Message from Soviets:
>10th Mech division will attempt an overrun against the untried Soviet unit a 0524. 12 attack factors halved to 6 vs the unsupplied Soviet unit at 0524. 10th Mech division spent 3 movement points to cross the river and 3 more for the overrun attempt.

0524 contains a 1-1-6 so we are on 6:1 odds.


>18th Mechanized division will move to 1813 and attempt an overrun of the Soviet armor/mech untried unit in 1713. This will be 6 movement factors so far for the 18th. 6 attack factors vs untried Soviet which is out of supply and halved.

1713 contains a 3-10. Halved to 1 so we have 6:1 odds again.

>Next the 18th Pz division will attempt an overrun against the untried Soviet infantry unit in 1615. 3 movement points to cross the river to 1016, then 2 more movement factors along the road to 1416, then 2 move off the road to 1616 and 3 to overrun is 10 movement points. The Soviet unit is just outside the range of the Soviet command units and is halved. So 8 attack vs at most 4 defense. D1 / D2 will retreat this unit to 1515 / 1414.

1615 contains a 1-3-6 so halved to 1. 8:1 odds.
105 2/18/2021 1:54:00 PM Turn 4 Soviets Message I have forwarded what I think is that first file. Take care with it if it arrives. Whether it is or isn't the right one, tell me if anything is outstanding.
104 2/17/2021 9:03:00 PM Turn 4 Germans Message I will await your resolution of the next 3 overrun attempts before moving further. I sent a move file to specify these overruns and moved a few more units.
103 2/17/2021 12:09:00 AM Turn 4 Germans Message I will be trying a couple more overruns but they will be against untried units.
102 2/17/2021 12:07:00 AM Turn 4 Germans Message Well, that was not the low numbers that I was wanting. The 6 roll on the 4-1 gives an Eng result and both sides take a step loss.
On the 1-1 the 4 roll also gives an Eng result and the 3rd Pz takes a step loss but at least the 9-8-6 is removed. This halts movement for both Panzer divisions and they don't advance.

Rolling for the first two overruns of the Turn 4 German Mechanized movement since I know the value of the defenders.
1st roll is using 10th Pz division vs the 73rd Soviet infantry in 0623. 8 attack factors to 4 defense halved to 2 gives 4-1 for this attack.
2nd roll is using 3rd Pz division vs the 9-8-6 in 1116. 8 attack factors vs 8 defense halved for out of supply doubled to 8 for a 1-1 attack.
100 2/16/2021 8:38:00 PM Turn 4 Germans Message I didn't get the first file but I can assume the result except I didn't know which Soviet unit in particular was eliminated. Also, on the 3rd attack where I got the D2/A1 result against the stack at 0917, I will take a step loss to stay and advance and also block the retreat from the unit at 0816. I'll show this in my first file along with the advances after combat.

Reveal 3-5-6 and 5-8-6 so OOS reduces to 6, forest doubles to 12. 64:12 gives us 5:1 odds.

1-1-6 revealed. With leader reduces to 1 due to OOS we have a strength of 2 doubled to 4 due to the forest. 10:1 odds.


>2nd combat at 1116 vs Soviet 16th army HQ and untried Soviet unit. 50 attack factors vs ?

9-8-6 so halved to 4 as OOS and leader is a 1 for this. Doubling due to the forest gives us a defence strength of 10. 5:1 odds.
92 2/15/2021 12:34:00 AM Turn 4 Germans Message On the attack at 0424, the defender would retreat to 0524 on D1 and 0623 on D2.

TOP ROLL

>the DR division spends movement points 7-9 to attempt an overrun of the armor unit in 1325

3-10 revealed. OOS so just a 1. 9:1 odds role.


BOTTOM ROLL

> the 7th Pz division will attempt an overrun of the untried and now out of supply unit in 1611. 8 attack factors vs ?

6-5-6 revealed. OOS and in forest so becomes a 4. 8:4 becomes a 2:1 roll.
88 2/14/2021 4:42:00 PM Turn 4 Soviets Message >You also didn't move the units at 1611, 1810 and 2110.

Deliberate. One is a forlorn hope.
87 2/14/2021 7:45:00 AM Turn 4 Soviets Message Am a bit slow as getting ready for more house viewings
86 2/13/2021 8:05:00 PM Turn 4 Germans Message The SS DR division gets a D1 result eliminating the surrounded 155th division as it is surrounded by German Zones of control. I'll send the 2nd part of this movement phase but I don't have many more overruns coming as many of the Panzers get dispersed.

Message from Germans:
I have sent the first part of the Turn 4 German movement phase and stopped to do the overrun by the DR SS division in 0924 against the 155th Soviet in 1024. 9 attack factors vs 3 defense = 3-1 combat odds. This roll is for that attack. I'm hoping for a 1-3 so that division can continue.
84 2/13/2021 12:05:00 PM Turn 4 Germans Message By the way, my Vassal module wasn't working this morning. I had to download the game module again before it would play.
83 2/13/2021 12:04:00 PM Turn 4 Germans Message I looked over your moves and that is a lot to move. One minor item is that you moved 4 untried units by rail with the 28th army at Vyazma which is one too many and creates an overstack there. There should be one moved back joining the unit that marched in at 5508. You also didn't move the units at 1611, 1810 and 2110. They look like they are in good defensive positions in the woods but if you want to move them you may. The one at 1611 could be surrounded easily.
82 2/13/2021 3:18:00 AM Turn 4 Soviets Message Remezov, 0524, will be the first Soviet leaver evacuation. I think the Germans do have an easier time in the game than initially envisaged, but the leader evacuation is in my mind a better minor corrective than shifting all the VP levels by 1.
81 2/13/2021 3:15:00 AM Turn 4 Soviets Edit VPs Soviets: from 0 to 0
Germans: from 17 to 18

77 2/13/2021 3:10:00 AM Turn 3 Soviets Message A1 for the 1024 attempt.

D1/A1 for the other.

Retreating on A losses does compromise overrun ability next turn, but the alternative sees the Panzers degrades.

TOP ROLL

>and the other against the untried unit at 1509 and this should be at least a 2-1. In both cases, I will retreat on A1 or A2 results.

BOTTOM ROLL

2-6-6 revealed. Halved as OOS. 8:3 gives the 2:1.
75 2/11/2021 9:24:00 PM Turn 3 Germans Message I also sent the air interdiction move file.
74 2/11/2021 9:16:00 PM Turn 3 Germans Message I sent the final German mechanized movement vlog file for turn 3. There are two more overrun attempts and since one of them is against an untried unit I will let you resolve both. This concludes the German Mechanized movement of turn 3 and we go to turn 4.
73 2/11/2021 6:50:00 PM Turn 3 Soviets Message D1 clears the defender.

D1/A1 takes out the weaker unit and the A1 spreads out the panzers as they retreat.

Message from Soviets:
Two more overruns against untried units.

>20th Pz moves into 0914 and attempts to overrun the untried Soviet unit in 0814. I'll do a few move overrun attempts to try and speed up things while waiting for this resolution.

I think it's fine to get on with actions that are independent of one that is paused for resolution.

4-5-6 at 0814. Halved to 2 as OOS. 20Pz is an 8 so 8:2 is 4:1

>3rd Pz will attempt to overrun the two Soviet units in 1024 (probably not a good idea but maybe I'll get lucky. 8 attack factors against the surrounded and unsupplied units should be at least a 1-1.

7-7-6 and 3-4-6 at 1024. Halved to a joint 5. 8:5 does give a 1:1.

Message from Germans:
20th Pz is attempting an overrun of the surrounded 4-4-6 in 1013. 8 attack factors vs 2 defense = 4-1 attack. Since I know this unit, I'll do the roll and see what happens.

TOP: DR SS division will attempt an overrun of the untried isolated unit in 0721. 9 attack factors vs ? and their movement will continue if successful.

1-3-6 revealed. Halved to 1, doubled for forest. 9:2 becomes 4:1.

BOTTOM: 10th Pz will attempt an overrun of the untried isolated unit in 0422. 8 attack factors vs ?

7-6-6 revealed. Due to forest it defends as a 6. 8:6 is 1:1.

Message from Soviets:
TOP: 7th Pz division will attempt an overrun of the unit in 1411. 8 attack factors vs 1 defense = 8-1 odds.



BOTTOM: 12th Pz will attempt to overrun the untried unit in 1314 which is halved since out of supply at the moment of combat. If successful, both of these Pz divisions will continue movement but I'm combing them here in the interest of time.

Reveal a 2-5-6. 8:2 so 4:1.
63 2/9/2021 5:10:00 PM Turn 3 Germans Message I sent two files. One was the advance after combat moves and the 2nd was the first part of the mechanized movement phase of turn 3 with several overrun attempts. The first overrun would be an 8-1 against the disrupted unit in 1411 which I could have resolved but I wanted you to look these over to see if I did anything wrong.
