    I want AGN.

    While I appreciate your enthusiasm, I was wanting to do AGN alone. Its tiny and I have a very controversial plan in mind that could cause a lot of arguments with any subordinates.
    (I want to go straight for Leningrad, and take it, and probably lose contact with AGC in the process)

    BTW; AGC is un-commanded at this time, that's the biggest and most important Army and it really needs more than one guy to run it.

    Would you rather have all of AGN, or take the lead or part of another Group?

      Logistics from the Balkans is tied to the Railroads. East of Poland you have Soviet Rails set on Russian gauge tracks. They are not given a strong foundation like in Western Europe. A problem is that the infrastructure (depots, workshops, water towers, turnarounds) are set on use of the larger Soviet locomotive that goes further (more fuel, water carried). The Germans had to reset the rails (easy) and build more train depots (not planned on!). On the game map, single track rail lines have a unimproved road running alongside. Think gravel road! The double lines have an improved road alongside (think asphalt). It is possible to send some logistics by ship in the Black Sea, but first you have to take Odessa and some other ports! The game is set up to allow barge convoys in the Baltic. You can get them to Liepaja, Windau, Riga and at least Narva.

        If the Ex takes AGN, I have PG1 and 6th Army available for play.

          I can imagine the feeling!
          I already entertained similar innovative ideas on how to run a Blitzkrieg in AGN, re my remark on maritime logistics via the Baltic.
          As I understand you have older rights, I'll bow out.

              Decision #1: demand military independence. I know this won't endear Hitler to us, but OTOH it will impress our superiors in the Heer.

              Decision #2: capture the train if possible. Delaying the operation is folly, so is ignoring it.

              Decision #3: Luga. The coastal area can be supplied by sea.

              Decision #4: Smolensk - straight in.

              Decision #5: fully motorize, worth the cost if they convert the rail gauge quickly.

              ---

              That said, if AGN goes wholly to one other player, I'm fine with any other position at army group or army level.

                Decision #1: Support Hitler's Plans. I believe we will start with more PP and recieve more during the game. Hitler is going to shift objectives (or at least their value regardless of which choice we make. As long as we don't tee-off the Heer so much that it interfers with support on the first turn we should be able to smooth our relations with SOME of the additional PP's we will get.

                Decision #2: Capture train if possible. 40% chance to take train with no PP cost. Delaying offensive will still have a 20% chance of losing the train anyway and cost PP. Delaying our offensive gives the enemy a chance to begin their recovery from surprise. It is just delaying to build up fuel reserves before we even have to. Do nothing to risk delay at this point.

                Decision #3: I defer to AGN in this matter. I personally think the more easterly route (historical) would be of more benefit later in the drive on Leningrad and is more direct.

                Decision #4: The supply route to Minsk/Smolensk served us well in staff studies (last game).

                Decision #5: Motorize them. We can hope for more efficient rail repair. Will just have to watch relations in the future with those we offend.
