92 2/26/2021 7:55:00 AM Fall 1941 Allied Message OK (SUa) in Dnepr to EB.

GE6 to Dnepr.

PZc flipped in Kharkov .

Axis control marker placed in Voronezh.

PZ2 ends up in Elets with supply via Voronezh and Kursk.
91 2/26/2021 6:20:00 AM Fall 1941 Axis Message I missed the river for the Dnep attack and thought the elim of the SUa was automatic on a 4L v 2S combat.

I would have used the PZc for the Dnep attack so ensure the elim of the SUa. PZc not needed in Voronezh attack.

So, if it's ok, the GE6 is now on Dneprop and the PZ(c) on Kharkov. The purpose in moving the PZc to Kharkov was to allow the 2PZA to be in supply once it reached Elets. Having the PZc on Kharkov guarantees supply.


90 2/25/2021 9:50:00 PM Fall 1941 Allied Message Oh, wait, my 2 LF would have flipped the PZc. I can see why you wouldn't use it.

Do you want to flip the PZc and take Dnepr or leave the GE6 in Kharkov with no loss?

You can readjust your advances since Dnepr happened before Voronezh.
89 2/25/2021 9:48:00 PM Fall 1941 Allied Message You didn't need the PZc in the attack on Voronezh as 4L was sufficient anyway. I'll assume you use the PZc on Dnepr to make it AV so GE6 advances in as you planned.
88 2/25/2021 9:45:00 PM Fall 1941 Allied Message 1/2

71 2/25/2021 5:58:00 AM Summer 1941 Axis Message A bit of a spluttering German assault on Russia, partly due to a limited hand and your leaving the SW on Lwow. That certainly focussed attention on making sure there was no escape route for the SW to use.

Holding Nordlicht ensured I had to treat Leningrad as the primary objective.

Soviets look quite solid now, and Moscow seems safe for Stalin to remain. One plus for the Axis is no Ind Evac yet.

Move Gomel: SU Central to Poltava joining SUa already there.

Move Chernigov: SUa to Konotop.

Move Kremenchug: SUa to Dnepr.

No stacked Germans in the Soviet Union. Good for Winter, but for Fall still to come, very inefficient operation wise.

It is painful to watch the SU SW Mech rot OOS, but occupying Lwow the second turn does bottle up the Axis operations. It is a tough trade off. Sometimes I save it, sometimes I do not. Depends on the cards and circumstances.
