19 6/27/2022 11:55:00 AM Turn 1 Soviet Message German combat results:

1st attack. 4-12 1613 and 9-8 1612 v U-7 Inf at 1713. Reveal shows a 4-4-7. 13 to 4 with a 1 right shift makes this a 4-1. The die roll of 1 gives a D2 result. I will retreat to 1814 to stay in supply. You may advance if you want to.

2nd attack. All 4 units adjacent to 1312 v your U-7 Inf there. Reveal shows a 3-2-7 rifle division which is out of range of the HQ. 4-12 + 2-8 + 2-12 + 2-12 = 10 v 1 and a shift right for armour makes this a 10:1. The die roll of 5 gives a De result and the 3-2-7 333rd rifle becomes the first Soviet casualty. You may advance 2 with 1312 being the first hex. This was a really good attack on your part.

3rd attack: The two 2-8s in 1822 v the U-8 Cav in 1922. Reveal shows a 2-2-8 which is in supply and I added air support. 4 to 2 with air support makes this a 1:1 attack. The 6 roll gives an A2 result and the two 2-8's must retreat 2. I will advance the 2-2-8 along one of the retreat paths.

German attacks for turn 1:

1st roll. 4-12 1613 and 9-8 1612 v U-7 Inf at 1713. Reveal shows a 4-4-7. 13 to 4 with a 1 right shift makes this a 4-1.

2nd roll. All 4 units adjacent to 1312 v your U-7 Inf there. Reveal shows a 3-2-7 rifle division which is out of range of the HQ. 4-12 + 2-8 + 2-12 + 2-12 = 10 v 1 and a shift right for armour makes this a 10:1.

3rd roll: The two 2-8s in 1822 v the U-8 Cav in 1922. Reveal shows a 2-2-8 which is in supply and I added air support. 4 to 2 with air support makes this a 1:1 attack.
17 6/27/2022 11:32:00 AM Turn 1 Soviet Message In my explanation, I got the 1st and 2nd combats reversed. 2nd combat is at 1322 and may be a high odds attack.
16 6/27/2022 11:27:00 AM Turn 1 Soviet Message I'll commit the air defense the 3rd attack on the cavalry unit in 1922. This might give a 1-2 attack and the possibility of an Ae result if this is a strong unit. I thought about the using it for the 1st attack but since that infantry is out of supply (out of range) the defense would only be a 1 if it's defense is a 1, 2 or 3 (which is the majority of the infantry units) and the air wouldn't make any difference as this would still be a 10:1 attack with the 1 column shift for armor. If the defense is a 4 or more then the first attack would be 6-1 or less and it could retreat. The 2nd attack is against a supplied unit so a 2 defense or more would be at 6:1 or less and it will probably survive. So, I'll use the air support on the 3rd attack at 1922.
15 6/27/2022 5:05:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Not sending a file as it would not show any changes in location or strength. Those two retreats from overruns were fine.

German combats:

1. 4-12 1613 and 9-8 1612 v U-7 Inf at 1713. 13 to ?? with a 1 right shift. With all these it is quite an unknown as you might throw in the air unit and then there's the unknown strength.

2. All 4 units adjacent to 1312 v your U-7 Inf there. 4-12 + 2-8 + 2-12 + 2-12 = 10 v ?? and a shift right for armour.

3. The two 2-8s in 1822 v the U-8 Cav in 1922. This is the one that might especially get me retreating. 4 to ??

Am pondering your impending breakthrough and thinking we might be seeing the intrinsic garrisons being used soon.


14 6/21/2022 7:38:00 AM Turn 1 Soviet Message Both of the first two overruns get A1/D1 results. (I was hoping for the 6 roll and an Ae result on the first one but you got a 1 roll.) I'm sending a file showing the Russian retreats and likely German retreats but you can change if you want.

Message from Soviet:
Initial German overruns:
Note that both Soviet units are in supply.
1st roll. 9-8 at 0716 v the U-7 in 0715. Reveal shows a 4-5-7 Rifle which makes this German 4 to 5 and a 1:2.

2nd roll. 9-8 at 1720 v the U-7 in 1820. Reveal shows a 1-2-7 which makes this German 4 v 2 and a 2:1.
12 6/21/2022 4:49:00 AM Turn 1 German Message German lead off overruns. No file sent. I'll let you roll these out before seeing what else might happen in the movement phase.

1. 9-8 at 0716 v the U-7 in 0715. German 4 to ??

2. 9-8 at 1720 v the U-7 in 1820. German 4 v ??
11 6/18/2022 12:51:00 PM Turn 1 Soviet Message The four Soviet units that will come up as lower valued units are:
The 81st and 124th infantry and the 5th and 6th Gds armor 7-11-7, 6-8-7 and 5-6-11 and 6-6-11.
They will have the same division designation when they appear but should start with these higher values and all four of these units will be 2 step units.
10 6/18/2022 12:41:00 PM Turn 1 Soviet Message Both attacks get a De result and the two 2-8's are eliminated. The 3-2-11 tank on the first attack advances into 0416. On the 2nd attack I will show advances in the Vassal file. Then it will be the Axis part of turn 1. Note that the German units cannot disengage on turn 1.

Message from Soviet:
Morale shift rolls for the following Soviet attacks for turn 1 in order:
1st attack at 0416
2nd attack at 0415
7 6/18/2022 2:49:00 AM Turn 1 German Message I'll let you roll these out as am heading off for a drive to the overnight ferry soon (historic stops along the way - Moseley Old Hall and Chirk).

0416: if retreat possible, go to 0417 then 0518.
6 6/18/2022 2:41:00 AM Turn 1 German Message > I am planning on replacing these units on my map as they come up if that is OK but I'm not sure I can find the units in our Vassal module. What do you think?

Put the location/strength of any of these units in the Notes section here as a reminder when they come up?
5 6/16/2022 12:06:00 PM Turn 1 Soviet Message Reveals on the first attack show 3-2-11 adding to the 11-7-7 makes the first attack 14 to 2 with armor shift and ? shifts for Soviet morale bonus should be a 9:1 or 10:1. I incorrectly flipped the Gds unit in my first reveal file but fixed that in the 2nd reveals file.

Reveals on the 2nd attack show a 6-5-7, 5-3-7 and 2-1-11 for 13 attack factors against the 2-8 which will be unsupplied and surrounded by the 1st attack and this is a 10:1 before the armor shift and morale bonus. I little overkill here but when you are dealing with untried units....
4 6/16/2022 11:49:00 AM Turn 1 Soviet Message Only 2 Soviet attacks for turn 1: Your defense in the center was just too good but I think I found a weakness in the North. Mostly, I'm trying to pin German units this turn in the center and try some breakout movement.

1st attack is at 0416 against the 2-8 by the Gds rifle and the untried tank unit in 0516 (but not the rifle unit there). 11 + tank vs 2 with one shift for armor and ? shifts for Soviet morale bonus. I will advance the armor if possible into 0416 but not the Gds rifle.

2nd attack is at 0415 against the 2-8 which should be out of supply following the first attack. Attackers: the untried rifle in 0315, the untried rifle in 0516 and the untried tank in 0515. ? to 1 with one shift for armor and ? shifts for Soviet morale bonus.
3 6/15/2022 11:28:00 AM Turn 1 Soviet Message There were two infantry and two armor units that were higher strength than the random units that came up last game that have a 6 defense and have 2 steps per 9.53. I identified the two infantry units and replaced them with the higher units but didn't think about the armor units and didn't replace them last game. These are the 81st and 124th infantry and the 5th and 6th Gds armor 7-11-7, 6-8-7 and 5-6-11 and 6-6-11. I am planning on replacing these units on my map as they come up if that is OK but I'm not sure I can find the units in our Vassal module. What do you think?
2 6/15/2022 3:24:00 AM Turn 1 German Message Two setup files sent. There are deliberate areas of strength and weakness.
1 6/13/2022 3:14:00 AM Turn 1 German Edit Air Points Left German: from 0 to 0
Soviet: from 0 to 1
