I mean, two battleships, one cruiser, two fortresses, several heavy arty? You know that support units get destroyed easily by artillery fire. I suggest adding a lot of bunkers with tons of experience and AT into Leningrad to make it a siege situation. But remove the battleships or reduce them to destroyers or something.
Tried inching closer, impossible. I can deal with the Russian tanks outnumbering me 4:1 or the Red Airforce throwing tons of inexperienced planes at me doing quite a lot of damage to my fivestar fighters. (BTW, with OoB's air mechanics working the way they are, the Red Airforce is slightly too powerful. I mean, I can handle it, but always need to fly back, land, repair and attack again.) But the siege arty points are too close to that massive wall of concentrated heavy arty fire. And with Luftwaffe's strat bombers never making a dent in a battleship, this is not working. Go for bunkers, AT, AA and some destroyers as the Leningrad garrison, then this mission might work out.
Also, the trigger "dont lose any siege arty" is not working. They are still there, but the counter is down to 6/7 somehow.
And again, there is not enough supply to deploy everything I want in the starting area. Light infantry, light AT and light arty without transport is kind of the only thing helping me beat those masses of Russian armor. I let them attack my infantry and the light AT behind it deals the damage. Next round is the counterpunch, knockout. Cant do that with just Panzer IIIs. I doubt that any other Army composition (mine is fairly balanced) allows you to beat these missions as fast as this one with as few reinforcements necessary. 88AT is too slow and cumbersome, heavyinf expensive, slow, useless without transport.
