Terek is HARD!
I've only beaten it in 8 turns, and only once. Anyone have some good strategies for making it in 7?

I usually have two tanks run down the west side, cross the river and open up the western bridge and try to take the city and victory point. I'll use a tank in the east to cross the river, build a bridge, and try hammering away at that city. Troops are mainly used to protect supply and try to hookup the supply lines. Blah I've had dozens of restarts on this one.

Don't worry about the cities that aren't objectives. Bypass them.

Have your tanks push south towards the first objective. Taking that objective can cut off supply to any Russains on the west flank. Use your infantry units to prevent the Russians on the west from crossing over and disrupting your supply lines.

When moving towards the eastern objective use your troops to block the ZOC of the unit holding Grozny allowing you to charge your tanks towards the eastern objective without wasting time attacking Grozny.

I'll have to examine the map after work again, but my first reaction is that I need to take the cities because they lie along the supply route. I could see skipping the second city as you mentioned, but I'd have to take the final objective in one turn. Seems like bad weather or anything not perfect means a restart. Thanks.

I thought I understoof ZOCs well, but this AM I watched the AI walk several hexes between and then past two fully active units?! What am I missing there. Full steps, only a one hex gap existed.

The first city does lie across the supply line but with the six hexes worth of supplies you won't run out of supply until just after Grozny.

Then you push your tanks out towards the objective and take it. You'll have two turns of attacks in which to take it.

I'm not a ZOC expert. I just lost a brilliant victory on one of the Russian scenarios because I thought I had blocked the path for a lone German unit. I hadn't. It retook an objective. Much sadness.

Yeah, I have to say that I got too hung up on trying to capture the cities to maintain railway supply. As Talan, wrote, it isn't necessary. My first try while avoiding the cities nabbed me a decisive victory.
