As for the replays, they are available only after the game is finished.
But with so many units, they don't work well.
Yeah, I also tried saving a replay of the full 99 turn scenario once and when replaying it, it stopped around turn 43 or so... it just ended there, not sure why... maybe because of the file size or the total number of actions/moves, no idea why? :cry:

Norway
A cell of the Norwegian resistance came in contact with us.
The only thing they managed to send to us: 'Tirpitz in Trondheim. Damaged submarine repaired in Namos.'
After that, the connection with them broke.
The Command believes that they were forced to dissolve themselves so as not to reveal themselves to the enemy.

The Command decided to continue the operation against Tirpitz.
And if it is possible to additionally destroy the submarine in Namos.
All our people in Norway are engaged in controlling the movement of German forces off the coast of Norway.

Torch
The landing of American troops began on the northern coast of Africa.
We called this operation Torch. The new theater of war will have the same name.
The goal of the operation is the seizure of Tunisia and the continuation of the landing forces on Sicily and Italy.
As well as dragging off Axis forces from the Eastern Front and possibly Syria.
An enemy submarine has been spotted in Gibraltar(!)

In the central sector of the front, fighting continues.
This is the most dramatic moment in the game since its beginning.
The enemy went to the left bank of the Volga River to the North of Moscow.

In the area of ​​Tula, the enemy's forces exhausted and were encircled by our troops.
This is the first encircle of Axis troops.
By the next turn, these weakened units will be destroyed.

Although the loss ratio is still very large, especially in tanks and fighters. The trend is to reduce the gap.
And in bombers the ratio is even good.

The change in trend is associated with the intensified battle for Moscow as well as with operations off the coast of Norway.

Well, as for Syria, the fighting for it was 16 turns.
For a long time, neither side had a decisive advantage.
As a result, the Axis was able to concentrate its forces and capture the VP one after another.
Also played a major role Luftwaffe aircraft.
The Axis also continued to transfer reinforcements to the region of Egypt, which means that she plans further advancement in the Middle East.

Of course, based on current knowledge, it will not be difficult to develop a defense plan that will not lead to defeat in Syria.

As for the overall situation.
That the Allies do not yet have special strategic plans. There are only tactical operations.
Basically a reaction to the actions of the Axis. As well as operations that are predetermined by the scenario, for example Torch.
The main tasks now to hold Moscow.

I also wanted to summarize the results of 1942, on the 40th turn, for both sides.
