Could you post your Losses and Expenditures?  Also, did the air battle just melt away, with no more pushes from the Soviets and Finns?

Excroat, unfortunately I didn't save my game any time after the Annapolis started its attack run, so I can't give you a losses expenditures roll-up for the end of the scenario.

About the air battle, yes, it melted away because of a glitch (which Gunner has now fixed) that made the air battle very easy for NATO. Basically, none of the large Soviet support aircraft (tankers, AWACS, transports) were taking off due to a mistake with the airfields and the fighters that were attacking were simply flying straight and level as targets for my missiles without fighting back, making the A2A battle very one-sided. Gunner has put out an updated version that deals with these issues, but I was already too far into my game and this AAR to go back and start from the beginning, so I just ended up ignoring the air fight, which is unfortunate because this scenario is meant to be focused on the air battle while the next one (Trondheim Express) focuses on the battle around the amphib group. I'm replaying the updated air battle now before I move on to NF5.5.

Your entire series has been great, AR, but for some reason this one seemed particularly epic!

Thanks mirth! Incidentally, you're in luck, since the next scenario (NF 5.5 Trondheim Express) starts on the assumption that the amphibious group survived my early attacks and is continuing south, opposed by STANAVFORLANT and anything else NATO can throw in its way. I plan to start a new AAR for this one.

Truly the mark of great writing, AR.  You took something I have no interest in and made it interesting.  Thanks for the AAR and can't wait for the next one :)

IMHO you should seriously consider selling this as an e-book. This is too good.

Thanks for the kind word, Dimitris! I can't take credit. I'm experiencing the story Gunner is telling through his battle set and just putting it down in words.
