You are overwhelmingly outnumbered. All the Russians have to do is stack up a wall of units against your advance, which they can do, endlessly. You can win any individual battle, but you inevitably lose the war of attrition. And then the rain just fucks you in the ass.
I watched two separate playthroughs that were uploaded here and they were surreal. Every axis strike destroyed a Russian unit, with no damage to the Germans. To say the least, that does NOT happen when I play.
Well three things:
1. Relocate engineers from your infantry to the armour and motorized divisions (on turn 2 or 3 - once you have broken through the first two lines).
2. A brilliant victory is probably only possible about 80% of the time here due to weather.
3. Speaking of which: You do know that you don't need to capture objectives within the set turn limits? As long as you capture all objectives before the final turn you still get a victory. The turn limit for each objective is what is required for a brilliant victory. There are three outcomes to a scenario: Brilliant Victory, Decisive Victory, Victory and Defeat. In the campaign you are sometimes required to achieve a certain level of victory to advance to the next scenario. Brilliant victories are designed to be hard to achieve and they usually require slightly better performance than what happened in history. Anyway - for playing through single scenarios the level of victory is irrelevant as you can always jump to the next scenario regardless.
