This gives a total wipe out of the Soviets except for the 57th HQ at 3016 which was guarded but not attacked.
Time to switch sides and for you to send a German setup Vassal file. Watch out for Soviet infiltration on the first two turns.

Message from German:
Rolling for the last four axis attacks of turn 10:
5th attack is at 2801 against the 4-3-7 and 1-1-7 by the 16th Pz division (14) and the three 9-8's in 2702 (27). 41 to 4 is a 10:1 even without the armor shift.

6th attack is at 2802 against the 1-2-7 and 1-1-7 by the three 9-8's in 2703 and the 7-8 across the river in 2803. The 5th attack will advance into 2801 and cut the supply to these soviet units. 30 1/2 to 2 is a 10:1.

7th attack is at 2901 against the 4-3-7 by the 9-8 and 7-9 in 2902. Any HQ that will be displaced to 2901 will be displaced and not able to supply this hex so the defender will only be a 1 in defense. 8 to 1 is an 8:1 for this attack.

8th attack is at 2202 by the two 2-8's adjacent. 4 to 1 and I will add air support to make this a 5-1.

232 6/5/2022 9:31:00 PM Turn 9 German Message No overruns during the initial movement phase for turn 9 Axis moves. 7 combats to resolve with no air support for these.

1st attack is at 0615 against the surrounded 67th armor 4-3-11 by the 3rd Pz division and the 62nd infantry. 25 to 1 makes this a 10:1.

2nd attack is at 0617 against the unsupplied Soviet infantry 2-4-7 by the 2-12 in 0718, the 4-8 in 0717 and the 2-8 and 9-8 in 0616. 17 to 2 is an 8:1 and the armor raises this to 9:1.

3rd attack is at 0518 against the 349th Soviet infantry 3-3-7 by the 2-8 in 0417m the two 9-8's in 0519 and the 2-12 and 2-8 in 0618. 24 attack vs 3 defense doubled to 6 for woods and then halved to 3 for no supply makes 8:1 and the armor unit raises this to 9:1.

4th attack is at 1812 against the unsupplied and untried Soviet armor by the 23rd Pz division, 389th and 108 Le divisions. 31 to ? should be a 10:1. No advance here.

5th attack is at 1813 against the unsupplied and untried Soviet cavalry in the woods by the 4-7 in 1713, the stack in 1714, the 2-12 at 1814, and the 2-8 across the river in 1914. 22 to ? with a shift for armor should be at least a 6:1.

6th attack is at 1911 against the unsupplied and untried Soviet cavalry in the woods by the 22nd Pz division, 376th and 94th divisions and the 2-8 across the river. 35 to ? with a shift for armor should be 9:1 or better.

7th attack is at 2603 against the unsupplied and untried Soviet armor and cavalry by all the surrounding units. 70 1/2 vs ?? should be a 10:1.

1st attack at 0219 v 0220. Add an air point. THE air point. 12 to 9 gives 1:1. Shift 2 for air and armour, so 3:1. Die roll of 6 gives an Eng result. German 9-8 flips to a 4-8. Soviets lose 1 step (either the armor unit is eliminated of the Gds unit flips).

2nd attack. 3 adjacent hexes v 0915. A retreat with the river at their backs might help. 6 v doubled 4 gives a 1:2. Shift for armour so 1:1. German air support was added making this a 1:2. The die roll of 6 gives an Ae result which eliminates all three attacking Soviet units. I'll advance both 2-8's to 0914. The Soviet 38th HQ remains in 0814 since it did not participate in the attack.

3rd overrun attempt is at 1214: 3rd Pz vs the untried, unsupplied and surrounded Soviet infantry. 8 to ? with one column shift for armor and with +1 to the die roll for attacking across a minor river.

4th overrun is at 1907: 22nd Pz vs the 84th and 15th Soviet armor brigades. 8 to 2 (after halving for supply and rounding down) makes this a 4:1.

215 5/29/2022 9:29:00 PM Turn 8 German Message Two overruns to resolve in the first part of the Axis Mechanized movement phase:
1st: 3rd Pz will try an overrun against the untried and unsupplied Soviet infantry in 1715. The Russian is in the woods and doubled and then halved. 8 vs ?

2nd: 14th Pz moves 5 movement points and then 3 more for an overrun attempt against the untried and unsupplied Soviet stack in 1907. 8 vs ??? should be at least a 1:1.
214 5/29/2022 8:48:00 PM Turn 8 German Message Note that the advance from the 6th attack cuts off the supply and retreat of the armor unit in 2405 making this 7th attack 33 1/2 to 1 and a 10:1. No need to roll since the result will be De or D2 which will eliminate the 5th Gds.

7 Axis attacks for turn 8:

1st attack is at 0616 against the Soviet 341st infantry 5-3-7 by the units in 0716 (2-12, 2-8 and 9-8) and the units in 0717 (4-8, 9-8 and 2-12). 28 to 3 is 9-1 with one column shift for armor makes this a 10:1 attack.

2nd attack is at 1414 against the untried Soviet infantry which is in the woods but out of HQ range and halved after doubling for woods. Attackers are the 3rd Pz division and the 380th, 260th and 108 Le infantry divisions. 41 attack factors halved to 20 1/2 vs ? with one column shift for armor and one column shift for air support should be at least a 7:1.

Note that the advances of the 2nd attack may be able to cut off the retreat of the defender in the 3rd attack depending on the result and Soviet retreat (if D2).
3rd attack is at 1617 against the untried Soviet infantry which is in the woods but out of HQ range. Doubled for woods and then halved for supply. Attackers are all the units in 1618 (3-7, 9-8 and 4-8) and all the units in 1718 (7-8, 3-7 and 2-12). 28 attack factors halved to 14 vs ? with one column shift for armor and one column shift for air support should be at least a 5:1.

4th attack is at 2009 against the untried Soviet armor which is in the woods but surrounded and out of supply. Doubled for woods and then halved for supply. Attackers are the 23rd Pz (16 factors), 376th and 389th infantry 9-8's (18 factors) and the 94th infantry (4 1/2 factors). 38 1/2 vs ? should be at least a 6:1.

5th attack is at 2005 against the 218th 1-2-7 infantry by the 22nd Pz (16) and only the 111th infantry (9) in 2106. 25 to 2 is a 10:1 even before the armor shift.
If the 5th attack gets a De result, the Germans will advance at least one unit to 2105 and cut off retreat for the 3-3-11 in 2205 (the 6th attack).

6th attack is at 2205 against the 1st armor 3-3-11 by the 14th Pz (16 factors) and the 75th and 76th infantry in 2106. 34 to 3 is a 10:1.
If the 6th attack gets a De result then the Germans will move to 2305 and put the Soviet unit in 2405 out of supply (the 7th attack)

7th attack is at 2405 against the untried Soviet armor by the 16th Pz (14 factors) and the 257th and 384th infantry in 2406 (16 factors) and the 101 Le infantry in 2506 (7 factors halved to 3 1/2). 33 1/2 vs ?. Note that the Soviet armor will likely be surrounded and halved on defense by the advances from the 6th attack.
205 5/27/2022 5:10:00 PM Turn 8 Soviet Message 1. Advance.

2. Lose 2-2-8 and advance.

3. Retreat.
204 5/27/2022 3:13:00 PM Turn 8 German Message Actually, 0916 is a valid vacant hex on that 3rd attack so the 2-8 will retreat there instead of 0817.
203 5/27/2022 3:08:00 PM Turn 8 German Message Soviet attack results: Fairly good attack rolls for the Soviets. (A 6 roll on the 3rd attack would have been an Ae result but you got a 1.)

1. 2-1-11 and 10-11-7 0218 v 9-8 at 0219. is 12 to 9 and with the armor shift, this becomes a 2:1. A 2 roll gives a D1 result and the 9-8 retreats back one to 0220. You may advance 1.

2. 4-5-8, 4-3-11, [NOT 2-3-8], 2-2-8 and 3-3-7 v 9-8 at 0418. 13 to 18 due to forest. Add the air point and with the armour we have a 2:1. A 4 roll gives a D1/A1 result. The 9-8 retreats back one to 0419. You can retreat all one space or take a step loss and advance into 0418.

3. 5-3-7 and 4-3-11 v 2-8, 4-12 and 2-12 at 0816. 9 to 8 makes this a 1:1. I'll add German air support to shift one column left which makes this a 1:2. A roll of 1 gives a D1/A1 result. I'll retreat one with the 4-12 going back to 0917 and the other two going to 0817 as these are the only two vacant hexes available. You can retreat both units one space or take a step loss and advance one but you would be out of range of your HQs.

I'll wait until you reveal and roll this before continuing with the Mech move. Hopefully, this unit will be out of the way for more overruns.

186 5/15/2022 2:46:00 PM Turn 7 German Message Bad news: You need some changes on the last 3 Axis attacks.
Good news: The odds were actually lower on the 5th and 6th attacks and both of those units survive with a D2's. When halving for supply you first modify for terrain and divisional integrity and then half for supply. See 11.43.
On the 5th attack, your 5-3-11 is doubled to 6 defense for woods and then halved down to 3 for supply. This makes this 20 to 3 and a 6:1 attack. With the 3 roll you get a D2 and not a De.
On the 6th attack, your 3-3-11 is doubled to 6 defense for woods and then halved down to 3 for supply. 19 to 3 is 6:1 and then the air support makes it 7:1. With a 3 roll again you get a D2 and not a De.
On the 7th attack you got the lucky D2 but your first retreat hex cannot be 2703 because of the German ZOC there. They will need to retreat through 2802 and then to 2702 (instead of 2602). Not much changed here. Normally you retreat back to a vacant hex but in this game (unlike others in this series like Cobra) the ZOC extends across major rivers.

6th attack at 2408 against the 3-3-11 Soviet armor brigade in the woods but unsupplied (beyond the HQ range) by the 16th Pz division and three German infantry division 9-8's. 19 attack factors after halving for the major river vs 2 so 9:1 and then I will add my last air support for a column shift to 10:1.


7th attack at 2803 against the 1-2-7 supplied Soviet infantry and displaced 37th HQ by the 14th Pz division and four German 9-8 infantry divisions (all the adjacent divisions). 52 to 2 with one column shift for armor should make this a 10:1.

170 5/11/2022 8:54:00 AM Turn 7 German Message If you want, I can roll this one overrun since I know the Soviet unit and the odds.
169 5/9/2022 5:16:00 PM Turn 7 German Message TN 7:
Overrun attempt against 1921 by the 22nd Pz division. 16 attack factors halved to 8 for the overrun vs 4 defense halved to 2 for out of supply and with 1 column shift for armor makes this a 5:1.

Side note:
Armour is the British English spelling of the same word. It can be used in all the same contexts as armor. While, armor is the preferred spelling among American audiences, armour is the preferred spelling among British audiences.
168 5/9/2022 10:31:00 AM Turn 7 Soviet Message Yes all good. Supply line overstretch can't be helped.
167 5/8/2022 1:40:00 PM Turn 7 German Message On the Soviet attacks on Turn 7:
1st attack at 1015 was a 6:1 and with a 1 roll gets a De/A1 result. The German 2-8 regiment is eliminated and per your instructions the 1-1-11 armor is eliminated and the Gds 11-7-7 advances into 1015. This cuts supply and retreat for the German division in attack #3.

2nd attack at 0716 was a 2:1 and with a 4 roll this gives a D1/A1 result. Both the German 9-8 and 2-8 will retreat 1 back to 0816 (the only hex available). The Soviets will either lose the 3-2-11 and then can advance or they may retreat 1.

3rd attack at 0915 was 6 to 4 and with an armor shift and both sides using air support which cancel made this a 2:1 attack. With a 5 roll the result is Eng. The German 297th 4-8 takes a step loss down to a 2-8 xxx and the Soviet 1-2-7 296th is eliminated for their step loss.

Let me know your decision on the 2nd attack and then I will go into the Axis part of turn 7. I'll assume that you take the loss from the 3-2-11 and advance both remaining units and I'll send a Vassal file to that effect but you can change your mind if you want.

Message from German:
Soviet attacks on Turn 7:
1. 11-7-7 and 1-1-11 at 1014 v 2-8 at 1015. 12 to 2 is 6:1. Shift one right for armor to 7:1. Germans add an air point to make the final attack 6:1.

Both units will advance if possible with the 1-1-11 taking any loss.

2. 5-3-7 at 0615, 4-3-11 and 3-2-11 at 0715 v 9-8 and 2-8 at 0716. 12 to 11 with one column shift for armor makes this a 2:1 attack.

3. 3-2-7 at 0814, 2-2-11 and 1-2-7 at 0914 v 4-8 at 0915. The 4-8 is probably OOS but there is a forest doubling. Shift one right for armor and another for the Soviet air point. The Germans will add an air point to shift one left. 6 to 4 (and possibly 8 if the first attack only gets a D1) with a net of 1 shifts makes this a 2:1 (or possibly a 1:1).

1-2-7 takes any loss. All surviving Sov units would advance.
165 5/8/2022 1:15:00 PM Turn 7 German Edit Air Points available/used German: from 3 to 1

164 5/8/2022 1:15:00 PM Turn 7 German Message I'll use German air for a column shift on the 1st and 3rd Soviet attacks. That will leave only 1 air point for the Axis part of the turn.
163 5/8/2022 2:06:00 AM Turn 7 Soviet Message Good Sov unit for a change. 4-3-11. So no air point at attack 2. Any A loss at combat 2 comes from the 3-2-11 and if A2, the 5-3-7.
162 5/8/2022 2:04:00 AM Turn 7 Soviet Message T7 Soviet combat.

1. 11-7-7 and 1-1-11 at 1014 v 2-8 at 1015. 12 to 2 is 6:1. Shift one right for armour to 7:1. You might add an air point.

Both units will advance if possible with the 1-1-11 taking any loss.

2. Risky attack. 5-3-7 at 0615, U-11 and 3-2-11 at 0715 v 9-8 and 2-8 at 0716. If the U-11 is not at least 3 attack factors the Sov air point will be used.

3. 3-2-7 at 0814, 2-2-11 and 1-2-7 at 0914 v 4-8 at 0915. The 4-8 is probably OOS but there is a forest doubling. Shift one right for armour and possibly another for the Soviet air point if not used for combat 2. 6 to 4 with 1/2 shifts?

1-2-7 takes any loss. All surviving Sov units would advance.

Message from German:
Soviet overrun against German 2-8 in 1014 by the stack of 1-1-7, 1-2-7 and 2-2-11 units. I was puzzled why the Soviets were halved until it hit me that this was an overrun. After the armor shift this is a 1:1 overrun attempt.
158 5/4/2022 2:40:00 AM Turn 7 Soviet Message No it is even worse. The Soviets are halved, so after shifting for armour it is a 1:1.

153 4/30/2022 8:52:00 AM Turn 6 German Message I listed the correct unit for the overrun as the 23rd armor but listed his location as 1921 instead of 1820. To make the 8:1 required his defense to be a 1. If I had attacked the infantry in 1921 it would only have been a 5:1 (2 defense + 1 shift for armor) and he would have had an escape route. Sorry for my error in listing the wrong hex. I am sending a file showing the retreat of the Pz units. This should complete turn 6.

Message from Soviet:
>the 23rd Pz will attempt a couple of overruns. It moves 4 to 1920 and then attempts to overrun the 23rd Soviet armor in 1921 using 3 more movement points. 8 to 1 defense (halved from 2 since out of supply) makes this an 8:1.

Roll for fate of Russian unit at 1921

150 4/27/2022 3:05:00 PM Turn 6 German Message Two of the units revealed in the combat phase had a different value in my counter mix. In the 8th attack, the 81st rifle division is a 7-11-7 two step unit instead of a 5-4-7 which makes that attack a 3:1 instead of a 9:1. Fortunately, the die roll was a 1 and that gives a D2 result which will eliminate him anyway. However, we need to remember this for the next game.
On the 10th attack the 124th rifle division is a 6-8-7 in my counter mix instead of a 3-4-7 which again is a 2 step unit. 18 to 4 makes this attack a 4:1 instead of a 9:1 which with the 5 die roll gives an A1/D1 result. So the Soviet unit will take 1 step loss at 3004 and the Soviet HQ will stay there and the two German 9-8 infantry divisions will retreat 1. There is a 3-4-7 for the replacement counters so I put that unit back at 3004. I hope that is OK. Again, we need to remember this for our next game.

1st and only overrun for the TN 6 German Mech Move:
23rd Pz moves 4 to 1920 and then attempts to overrun the 23rd Soviet armor in 1921 using 3 more movement points. 8 to 1 defense (halved from 2 since out of supply) makes this an 8:1. If successful, the 23rd will advance into 1820 and stop. If the die roll is a 3 and there is an A1 the 23rd Pz will retreat back to 1919 and 2019.
