9.S) Return to jassy kishinev [MV] Prestige = 120100 [ +200 prestige per turn]
Core activity: Minor reoverstrengthen a couple of tanks. Repair 17cm with experienced. Repair recon rudel with free replacements.
Strategy: This is a very large map. I think this one is a prestige killer, overwhelming soviet attacks at the front and a large army behind you. Again I dont know of any tricks for this one. I will just try to slow down the juggernaut while sending a few units south to clear out behind the lines. I will have to include a king tiger south as there is at least one tiger unit behind me. I will try to catch as many as possible on the rivers. Also I will try to set up some killing fields on plain hexes in front of tigers next to bottlenecks in the terrain. you are given some aux infantry units but they dont last long.
Deployed: Softcap at 34%. Staggered deployment. 2x grenadier, para, M+3, pionere, panther, 5x T, kv85, 7x KT, recon, stug3g, jadtiger, 2x 17cm, 4x wurf, stug4, sig38, su122, 88mm, 12.8cm, mobileAA, wirbelwind. Air; 5x F, 3x TH 1x SB.
Destroyed: 67,44,7,31,21,13,0,14,4,6. Total = 207
Comments: This is a difficult scenario because of the volume of attacking units. There were three waves of air attack. I lost a few points each time. Overall the scenario was quite profitable although I took most losses on my airforce. I made the mistake of only looking at the DV conditions just before the end (RTFQ!!! moi
so left it a bit late to get a DV and also I rushed it at the end but a DV is quite doable with better timing. What I should have done is as soon as the first wave of attacks were dissapated I should have sent the extra units down south and not bothered with as much exploration above the VH line. Then it would be straigthforward. Also I dislike it so much i have no intention of doing it again, properly, just because I was rubbish. I was dissapointed with my jadtiger even taking account of its inexperience, I am actually wondering wether it is worth keeping at all.
