Smolensk was captured by panzer2's and paratroopers. 2 MG batallions and 1 infantry outside city were softened by artillery and killed by Partroopers and SS.

Roads were bombed by Moscow, Novogorad and Kiev.
Desperate German paratroopers decide to abandon their airbase in the middle east. The weakened units attacked the Russian stack of units South of Erzurum. Germany lost a paratrooper to the anti-air unit. The anti-air unit retreated during the next attack. 4 T-26 tanks were killed after that. The brave paratroopers are digging in for an expected assault by British forces in the vicinity. The German airforce also made a tactical retreat.
GPS to Drendor. Sorry for the delay in the report.
First of all: Nice move Sparta, capturing Smolensk wich I thought was safe from attack.
You managed to build a new road on hills near Minsk in 1 turn or did I miss to bomb that one?

As you can see, I have been rather busy...
Sounds like Russia had a great turn. The loss of my airforce, an army and some transport units in Pihkova will be a big setback!
Good work there and in the Middle East too!
Sorry for the hold up, will play today.
- Three planes and three mortars attacked the Russian units near Odessa, but only managed two damage.
- Mortared the British infantry for one damage. An AT infantry did another two damage. Two SS units attacked, both lost, one did two damage, the other none! An Italian infantry attacked and wiped out one of the British infantry. A third SS attacked and, you guessed it, got wiped out.
I think the 25% SS cap will be irrelevant soon, as they are starting to suck!
Polish airforce continued the harassment of the citizens of Kristiansand!
Botman: I guess I was rather lucky in Greece.
Nice pictures from Japan. I´m intrested in japanese history, especially the Sengoku jidai period. I will try to visit that fascinating country in the future.

All in all the russian situation seems hopeless. It´s almost impossible to defend our cities against the axis blitzkrieg. I think freighters shouldnt have been allowed to transport heavy equipment and tanks. And lorries should have been more expensive. The axis attack speed is simply too fast. As soon as 1 city falls and enables road network the rest of the front falls with it. We are only in turn 18 and France has fallen and Russia is being steamrolled.
I will continue though until we know that Allied and Rusia have lost for sure.
Bombarded almost every single city at the french coast.
German marine in Dunkirk killed by british marine army.
Navy cut roads in denmark
2 defenders in Cherbourg killed by tank and marine.
PanzerIV bombed in France. Those monsters are insane!
Navy redline defenders in Athens. 2 defenders destroyed in assault.
Catalina sunk trs in Dunkirk.
RAF destroyed 2 planes in Patras.
The only reason I can afford to be here is because I'm staying with my brother. It makes a huge difference when you don't need to worry about accommodation!
But yeah, the history (and culture) is pretty darn cool. Hope you make it some time.
Re: the Russian situation. I did think until last turn that perhaps the scenario was too unbalanced, but suddenly you hit back in a few places so I'm no longer sure (and slightly worried)! Russian infantry appear to be incredibly cheap to produce, perhaps it's a case of sheer quantity of units?
I agree that the tide seems to be turning against Russia. Blitzkrieg is the German way but I've accomplished this more with troop transports and units that can be carried in them than in building tanks. I think I have 18 troop transports which means I can chain them to send troops right across my territory and still attack on the same turn. I also have a lot of workers and slaves on the front lines so that I can rebuild roads immediately as I attack. They can be carried in the transports if necessary as well. This makes it possible to exploit deep into enemy territory in a single turn. I also build radar towers before attacking which helps a lot too. I've got a couple troop transport planes which are also useful as they can fortify newly captured cities with fresh troops that can attack if necessary.
I'm hoping to capture Moscow within the next couple turns. If I take away all the wonders in it, this should destroy the Russians will to fight.
I don't necessarily think the scenario is unbalanced, because the tactics I've used are available to all civs. I wouldn't mind playing Russia with the same rules as I think it has the potential to give Germany a very good fight. As Botman says, with its cheap units, it should be able to eventually outproduce Germany and win the battle of attrition. There are a lot of technologies and units that have the potential to give Russia and the allies an advantage.
I was curious to see if anything happened to my Scharfschutze unit that took the airfield by Moscow. I get one of them autoproduced every 13 turns. The stats say it is invisible so I was wondering if you could see it in order to know to attack it.
