Malta
The names of theaters of war cannot always correspond to the real. But it is convenient for me to give the same name for these.

In the Mediterranean is a fight.
But It seems one of our battleship fell into the trap and underwent attacks from air, submarines and enemy ships.
The aircraft carrier could not break through to Malta and deliver the fighters and retreat to Gibraltar.
The operation to break the blockade of Malta failed.

Command of the contingent of British troops in Africa,
decided to turn the tide and take the risk of applying сontrolled сhaos tactics.
It was decided to go into an unexpected attack in the area of ​​Tobruk.
Assuming there is enough time for reinforcements from Egypt to arrive.

Tactics of controlled chaos - when we try to seize the initiative or impose our actions on the opponent by overloading the opponent with multiple actions

I like this, I was actually wondering about it in the previous post already when I saw several fairly unprotected Axis artillery units...

Wow, the south looks very different from your other AAR, now where are all his remaining Axis forces?
To me, this could already be a first turning point in the strategies of these two AARs, maybe at least... :D :mrgreen:

I think that 7 turn was a turning point when the first results of both strategies became visible.
As I said, I concentrated all the available troops in the east in my Axis game; this is visible on the strategic map. Europe is empty.

Looking at the strategic map, there are really not that many Allied/Soviet units available at the start... and I am also still wondering what he is doing with his remaining Axis forces: I am sure there are more than you can see at the moment!

I was faster in the East and maybe also McGuba planned the Sea Lion, but changed the plans.

Centre
We are starting to receive reinforcements and we are exerting all the forces in Moscow.
In the area of ​​Yaroslavl is our Northern air base.
There have already arrived British fighter Harrier. Received by Land Lease.

We also have a Central air base in Moscow.
But above it, the planes are more endangered because they are in the range of Messerschmidts.
German fighters are essentially superior to ours in quality.
And we now have no means to deal with them.

There is also a Southern air base in the Tula region, but in this version of the mod it is not functioning yet.
Even further south, the base near Lipetsk, it also does not work yet.

In the rear near Gorky, we have our main rear air base. Through which most airplanes pass.
We still have an auxiliary air base near Vologda further north.

The Germans destroyed the defenders of Mozhaisk.
And they approached the last line of defense around Moscow.
And we are trying to take out from under the strike and save our T-34. Who has run out of fuel.
Also, all our troops are sent to the last line of Moscow defense.

We could not destroy a single Axis infantry.
But there is little success in the destruction of bombers.
But we have big losses in the ships. Mainly due to Mediterranean operations.

It is very interesting to see that you have higher Allied losses than McGuba has (as Allies) while on the other AAR you (as Axis) have captured more territory already (than he has reached here as Axis)...

So as a consequence (and if I am not mistaken), until now you have protected (slightly) more Russian soil but also lost some more men... well, not sure about the longer term consequences of this yet... if any of course!

Very exciting, thanks again for doing this AAR! :mrgreen:
