"Blizzard is treated as Snow for the Soviets and for the Azul Division".

Does this mean it has no effect on them (as with normal Snow weather) or do they gain the penalties the Germans get in Snow?

Thanks,
Simo

I would just read "blizzard" as "snow"for those units.

In Blizzard, I think Soviets and Azul gain the penalties the Germans get in Snow, because "Azul does not suffer any penalty in Snow (and it is only halved if attacking in Blizzard)" (OR 14.7)
But I'm not completely sure... Emanuele, please could you clarify Blizzard effects for Soviets and Azul? whistle

Yes Oscar,

that's correct.

The Germans are halved when attacking in snow (not the Azul).

Blizzard.
The Germans are quartered when attacking, halved when defending.
The Soviets and the Azul are halved when attacking, no penalty when defending.

Thank you, Emanuele.

So, are Soviet HQs ranges halved in Blizzard? (like German HQs ranges in Snow)

Oscar,

thanks for underlyining this and sorry for the confusion.

The Soviets do no suffer any kind of penalty in snowy/blizzard.

The Azul is not halved for attacking in snow, nor for defending in blizzard. However it is halved if attacking in Blizzard.

Make sense?

In short...

Snow:
- Germans are halved when attacking.
- German HQs range is halved.
- The Soviets and Azul don't suffer any kind of penalty.
Blizzard:
- Germans are quartered when attacking.
- Germans are halved when defending.
- German HQs range is halved.
- Soviets and Azul are halved when attacking.
- Soviet HQs range doesn't suffer any kind of penalty.

Right?

Almost, except that:

- Soviets and Azul are halved when attacking
is not correct.

The following is correct:

- The Azul is halved when attacking.

So, Soviets don't suffer any kind of penalty in Blizzard... I think I finally understood Snow and Blizzard. Thanks for your patience, Emanuele.

Last try:

Snow:
- Germans are halved when attacking.
- German HQs range is halved.
- Soviets and Azul don't suffer any kind of penalty.
Blizzard:
- Germans are quartered when attacking.
- Germans are halved when defending.
- German HQs range is halved.
- Azul is halved when attacking.
- Soviets don't suffer any kind of penalty.

Right?

That's perfect Oscar.

Sorry if I have confused things.

Your clarifications will help a lot in the new Leningrad '41 rules manual.
