Russian Mobilization

Recommended Posts

- It's more a reminder that you have to prepare for Barbarossa than anything else. You'll need at least two units (Koenigsberg and Warsaw) after conquering Poland and some more around after that. No worry, Stalin won't declare war on you just next turn unless you're already at 90% mobilization for USSR.

But Russian mobilization will continue to increase no matter what at some point.

- Events that push USSR mob % up:

* No units in Manchuria for Japan.

* Non respect of the Molotov Pact (eastern Poland, Baltic States...)

* Lack of units in Poland after the message you got.

* Invasion of countries like England or Yugoslavia

* Some other things you'll ahev to discover by yourself ;)

I am actually trying to mass my forces to invade Russia without causing the massing of troops to increase the Russian mobilization. I think that too many troops does increase the Russian mobilization and was wondering what triggers the increase in mob.

- Not sure about that, never had a message saying I've too much units on the eastern front. I can only say that USSR mob % will increase in 1941 no matter what you do (script) so the German player have to do something about it and can't just ignore Stalin ^^ .

- You can try to delay USSR war entry by diplomacy but it's costly and dangerous. Losing the usually 4 good blitzing summer turns of 1941 is a gamble.

It does, if you have 6-8 units in or adjacent to Warsaw, or 5-6 units in or adjacent to Konigsberg then Soviet mobilization has a 50% chance per turn of increasing, by 5-10% each time.

Therefore it's best to hold forces back from the frontier until just before you launch Barbarossa. Otherwise Stalin is alerted and there is a chance that he will actually believe the reports he is receiving (unlike in the spring of 1941 when he ignored every report of an invasion build up).

However, don't hold too much back, just keep it below those numbers because if you have no troops near either Warsaw or Konigsberg then that could wake up Stalin's dormant ambitions.
