23rd July 1946
That fucking idiot Lopatin has sent my boys in AGAIN against Helsinki in broad fucking daylight, (not that there's anything else at the moment). We're losing bombers to AAA, to enemy fighters, who contrary to what we were briefed by STAVKA, can fly, and fly damn well. We're having to build composite crews, who to their credit are working well together, well they're all veterans now. I wouldn't mind but the Finns have more planes than we thought they could, and a total bastard mix of them too, FW190s, ME109s - the latest models too, plus Mig3s, Yak9s and some of the American P39s, and that's just the fighters. They have pretty much all of our bombers as well on top of the left over Nazi planes they had already.
Our Sturmoviks are doing well but are wasted - the Finns have no tanks, no hard points, but our planes have no way to talk to the ground and the soldiers have no way to talk to the planes, until that happens there's probably no point in us being with this front at all.
Now I'm hearing back from the boys that the Swedes are flying against us now as well, So I have to add them into the mix. This is going to be crazy. I will ask Lopatin to get this army reinforced. I'd love to see how that goes.
