Not for certain but did the Germans make some really good progress? I haven't played RB in over a decade. They seem to have penetrated along the rail line a great deal.

Thanks for posting, always like to see how others approach a game.

I would say for a 6 Turns RB CG scenario the German achievements are average both in regards to perimeter and losses for both sides.

Hmmm det där tre-hex-huset uppe i nordöstr hörnet W10 X9 X10 

Det känns oerhört viktigt i spelet, är det någon som vet lite mer om det huset ... ?

 

Stod ingenting eller extremt lite i "island of fire" men det verkar lite bortglömt.

 

Som sagt i spelet känns det som om det är avgörande för försvaret i nordöst, vilket jag brukar tycka då jag försöker befästa det från dag 1 o framåt

Noterar att du har börjat använda tändsticksaskar som mellanförvaring. Verkar smart.

:)

 

’Började’ använda dem på 90-talet, mer än 25 år sedan. Här ser du alla 6-askarna, det var då jag spelade 3 kampanjer samtidigt. Har mellan askarna förstärkt upp med tjock-ark och fräschar ibland upp fram och bak ytorna med nyklistrat tjock-ark, använder nuförtiden original-mini-kart-arken, eller utslitna IFT tabeller, etc.
Bra förbättring är även att förd
ela upp några askar med två fack i samma tändsticksask.

Används även när andra kampanjer spelas, den som spelar engländare eller jänkare, brukar den ryska förvaringen.

AFTERMATH (7 Game Turns): A Bloodbath occurred in an inferno of blazing buildings. Stuka bombers struck Russian Assault Engineers in a roofless factory and killed 35 elite soldiers at the opening stages of the battle and destroyed their 3 LMG and their Leader in the two direct hits conducted by two Stukas. A Russian Btln MTR directed by an Offb´d Observer bombed the German troops in the factory complex (6B/2R, Black, Red, Black, Red). Three buildings were Rubbled along the front by Russian Set DCs and a half Coy of German soldiers perished, and simultaneously a German placed DC, rubbled a hex with 30 soldiers led by a Commissar. There were no stops to the casulties taken place and corpses piled up, along the street, ditches, and indoors, and mild breeze started a smoke screen and luckily for the Russians blinded the German all out assault against the last big factory in Russian Control, they tried to attack regardless of the smoke, but the Russian SMG squads repulsed German assault troops entering the factory in bloody hand to hand combat and point-blank fire stopped any further attempts.

At the Bread factory area the German attack went better and managed to break the Russian defense line with the help of two panzer platoons, the Russian were forced into a rout and conducted a slow bloody fighting withdrawal with the German companies in pursuit, backed up by their panzer, blasting the Russian positions into submission and also supported by a German Btln MTR directed by an Offb´d Observer (8B/3R, Red, Red, Black, Red, Black, Red).

In the Volga sector the Germans planned no attack and only tried to hold their gains, but a Russian medium artillery 120+mm started to blast Germans positions with pre-registered fire (6B/2R pulled Black, Black, Black, Black, Black, Red, Red), and conducted first a probing attack vs Gerrman positions under the effective artillery that never ceased to pound the Germans to death and in the middle of the battle an all out assualt were conducted and German immediately sent reinforcements from the central factory sector and the Stuka started to get very active in the area as many Russian troops soldiers were seen crossing relative open ground despite losses inflicted by the Stuka planes that to a great extent managed to save many German soldiers from being annihilated and also from reaching the big factory halls.
