Fortress defense myth. Fortresses were defended by elements of the 6th and 42nd Rifle Division. But only the elements.The rest of both divisions withdrew to the east. The fight for the fortress involved one German division and the fighting did not affect the movement on a nearby road.
Historical Barbarossa set up - 1st Guard Corps? Really? Certainly no guard units defended themselves here because the first guard units were not created until September 1941.
Soviet Display - As I wrote, the first divisions of the guard were named so on September 18, 1941. So they cannot enter the game in July.
Problem with the arrangement of Soviet units in the Barbarossa scenario.In fact, they were cast a little deeper.As it is shown on the historical map.
Another problem is the moral decay of ground units and aviation, described by Sołonin.Real fights began only at the turn of June and July.Until then, large Soviet units either disappeared or fled in panic. The rules for Barbarossa are too weak here. The speed of the German units' movement shows that there was no resistance and the Germans were traveling at normal speeds along the roads.
The result of the fight EX.As someone raised it is generally too frequent for good advantages.But in June 1941 there is another aspect.German units did not suffer significant losses.At all.Because ... there were practically no serious fights. Of course, in the lying Soviet reports cited in the literature, the Soviet army defended itself bravely. Sołonin and Bieszanow deal with these lies.
These are just a few historical remarks.I understand the balance of the game, but the war with the Soviets looked special in the initial period.The long-standing Soviet and now Russian propaganda lies in the fact of panic, breakdown and anti-communism.The disintegration of divisions taken over entirely from the Baltic States by the Soviets is hidden.The desertion of Polish, Ukrainian and Romanian conscripts was also huge.The Soviets only began to defend themselves on their old border.This is a big problem how to show it without creating specific recipes.But portraying Barbarossa as a normal clash of two armies, except that one did not have HQ and supply, does not convey the truth.This army did not defend itself in June.And in July in a counterattack near Jelnia, she took the area ... just abandoned by the Germans at the cost of terrible losses (oh this Zhukov, he always could).
I don't complain either, but I throw in a complicated topic.If this is how it should be as it is OK.
