Congratulations Michael, and thanks again for your support! :)

Funny to see that this AAR is relatively similar to the other one... but just in the south


Leningrad is now called St. Peterburg again.


Heeresgruppe Mitte is awaiting the Russian Winter Offensive... defenses are set up, and the troops are in good shape.


The Battle of Rostow has ended with high casualties on both sides, but the winner is Germany. Most of the remaining soviet units are badly damaged and barely avoided destruction. Red arrows mark units which escaped from the battefield with just a fraction of their original strength.


Very similar as well!

St. Petersburg is now completely under Axis control. Army Group North is heading to the east.


A German counteroffensive drives the Russian attackers back. The Winter Offensive does not have much effect.


Army Group South launches a surprise attack after Recon flights found a couple of unoccupied Russian cities.

The Russian Winter Offensive has ended... the enemy is starting a drawback. No objectives have been reached, not a single German unit has been destroyed.


Army Group South is close to conquer Kropotkin. This would leave the Russian forces at Maikop without supply.

Apart from this: in Kerch, three Russian units are trapped.

German Tanks conquer the City of Vologda. Moscow is no longer connected to the Russian Railway Network.


German troops advance in the West...


... and in the East of Moscow. The Red Army looses another two Tanks Corps, all others are heavily damaged.


The Russian offensive at the Gates of Stalingrad is halted, and the enemy force is cut off from supply.

Moscow is completely cut off from the rest of the country. Currently 31 enemy units are trapped in one of the biggest cauldrons of Military history. Although these Soviet troops are still a dangerous enemy, their fate is sealed.


At the gates of Stalingrad, nothing will happen for quite a long time.


The situation at the River Terek is quite similar, both sides cannot defeat the enemy without further troops.

The Russian Battleship Marat is sunk by German StuKas.


The Russians loose 70% of their remaining Tanks. One Tank Corps destroyed, two crippled.


Stalingrad and Grosny is quiet.


In the past weeks I have received Heavy Tanks 2, Infantry Weapons 2, Advanced Aircraft 2, Industry 1 and Ground Attack Aircraft 1. Helps a lot.
