Kharkov - Oh for a double-turn now... Actually there isn't a lot of depth in the Soviet forces, but that Axis line is looking like a meringue at the moment.
Dnepropetovsk - The mighty Red Army seizes its chance to start wailing on the running-dog lackeys of Fascism. Even if they are smaller and funnier-looking. Hey, that's all the reason we need.
Crimea - Sorting out the breach torn in what I laughingly refer to as the Perekop Fortified Zone.
[IRL the battle for the isthmus lasted 5 days from 24 September - not this time. No sir.]
Melitopol - After abandoning Melitopol with unseemly haste some time earlier, the Red Army cautiously creeps back, pausing every now and then to prick their ears and sniff the breeze... could it be a trap? Surely he's not relying on the Rumanians to hold the front?
Zaporozh'e - The Germans stood idly by while the brave workers of Zaporozh'e ran out of turnips and faded away before they ambled in. One of the Russian divisions pictured nobly escaped the noose at the last moment and left the town's proletariat to their fate. But now he's back, and he has friends. Crappy friends, true, but there's more behind them. With BT-7s! Wheee!
Somewhere in the Ukraine - Who needs transport planes when you can march like these guys? Yes, that's the Airborne-sans-Parachutes Division, after marching from the top corner, around the back of Kharkov, across the Donets, and off to... well, middle of nowhere really. But they're keen, and I like that in a faceless drone. Especially when they're as terribly outmatched as these guys.
What will happen to the glorious Red Army? Are they being set up for a sucker-punch before being given a right-royal panzer-truppen wedgie? Stay tuned for the next exciting installment!
