Frame start 2030hrs EST, Sunday 30 January 2022
Log in early!
GENSIT: Axis troops are rapidly retreating towards Stevastopol with Soviet Armoured columns close on their heels. The Gneisnenau Line was a hastily thrown-up defensive position centred on the road and rails lines running through Simferopol and extending to the sea. As rapidly as it was occupied by the Axis, it was abandoned for the stronger defences at Stevastopol. A few axis troops and armour were left behind in a delaying action. The Luftwaffe has abandoned almost all its forward airfields and is operating from within the Stevastopol perimeter (F28). Airfield 256 is available for aircraft to land and re-arm, but pilots may not start the frame there. On the VVS side, the Soviet ground advance was too fast to allow the VVS to operate from recently captured axis fields. Airstrip 213 is open, but flight is not enabled there.
Axis(LW) – Gold
Allied (VVS) - Red
Side assignments (see series info post). 13 VRAF should remain on the Soviet side. Depending on 352nd turnout, RCAF may join the axis for side balancing.
