- Kadets: 0 (-1)

- Tsarists: 3 (+1)
- NTS: 8 (+1)
- POA: 6 (-2)
The Octobrist lost their 10% edge, the loss of popularity in the center was translated in an increase in popularity for the left, with all three communist parties gaining support. Ironically the government is still fractured as the Bukharinite Radicals, although close to Communism aren't represented in the government and have now reached the 10% threshold.
On the right we have an equally distributed movement away from POA National-Socialists, towards the two less extreme right wing factions.

Overall a slight shift to the left seems like good news.
Party Organisation:
- Communist Party: 49,36 (-0,05)
- Trotskyite: 15,90 (-0,1)
- Bukharinite: 10,90 (-0,1)

- Octobrist: 11,40 (-0,1)

- Kadets: 0,03 =

- Tsarists: 2,90 (-0,08)
- POA: 0,0 =
- NTS: 0,0 =
This might be interesting to note, it seems that Party Organisation is calculated at the beginning of every month, with temporary changes occurring during the month due to spy activity. Everything is levelled again at the end of the month for a total of 100 or 99,9, here we see that due to support for the Kadets since the 1st of July the have recuperated 0,03 from 0. The Tsarists lost only the organisation gained during the month of June, the same goes for the Social-Revolutionaries . The consequence of this is that part of the gains by the Communist Party were undone at the beginning of the month(-0,11 compared to the last update and 0,06 regained since). It's the first time I've seen it happen this way...

The 15th of July 1938, Andreapol station, 10,2°C, 10am Moscow Time.

I had just enjoyed a train ride along the first new stretch of the Lovat East Bank Railroad. From the picturesque station in Andreapol straight through the Forest, loosely following the Lovat from afar up to where the track hadn't been laid yet. The ground was ready, the trees out of the way, only some track was still to be finished. When I got back to the station I was called to the Station's telephone...

Andreapol_Station.jpg

Andreapol Station (Ignore the concrete sleepers, I couldn't find a period photograph, and information on this 8.500 inhab. town is pretty scarce, especially in English)

'Tri' was on the line, he was going crazy there in Moscow:

"The Germans just took Austria today, without even firing a single shot! It seems there was a small political crisis this morning, and now there are Wehrmacht soldiers marching in the centre of Vienna! The Austrians just let it happen, even though the Fascists only had support among 23% of the population, it's crazy!"
The Anschluss of Austria has happened, Austria is no more. Most worrying is that the Wehrmacht made the trip from München to Vienna (280 km) in just 6 hours. This would indicate they have a substantial amount of Motorised forces fully ready for deployment.

The Wehrmacht in Vienna, in front of St. Stephen's Cathedral.
The 18 Infrastructure projects on which only the final touches are still to be done are the following:

-Western White Sea Coast, Archanglesk-Murmansk Railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 5' in Soroka, Sumskiy Posad, Kamenka, Nyukhcha and Kodino.

-Lovat East Bank Railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 5' in Andreapol, Toropets and Velikie Luki.

-Memel Northern Bank, Minsk-Kaunas-Memel railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 5' in Uzda.

-
Dniepr East Bank, Mariupol-Dnipopetrovsk-Kyiv-Homel railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 4' in Slavutych, Boryspil and Chernihiv. To 'Level 6' in Zaporizhzhya

-
Don East Bank, Stalingrad-Voronezh-Moskva railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 6' in Pashino, Usman, Krasnolesnyy and Davydovka.

-Southern Bug East Bank, Kyiv-Mykolaiv railroad missing link:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 5' in Arbuzynka
The same strategy has been followed to decide on the next 20 projects which will now start.

In the following 20 provinces work will begin (11) or continue (9), by adding an extra track or another hardened road.

-Western White Sea Coast, Archanglesk-Murmansk railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 6' in Kodino and Onega.

-Lovat East Bank Railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 6' in Andreapol, Toropets and Velikie Luki. And to 'Level 7' in Parfino and Marevo.
-Memel Northern Bank, Minsk-Kaunas-Memel railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 6' in Uzda

-Southern Bug East Bank, Kyiv-Mykolaiv railroad missing link:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 6' in Arbuzynka

-Dniepr East Bank, Mariupol-Dnipopetrovsk-Kyiv-Homel railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 5' in Slavutych, Boryspil and Chernihiv.
4 entirely new Projects were launched:

-Neva North Bank, Finnish border railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 7' in Osinovets.

-Narva East Bank railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 5' in Kingisepp.

-Volkhov East Bank railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 7' in Novaya Ladoga, Volhov, Malaja Vishera, and Proletariy.

-Vitba North Bank railroad:
Infrastructure will be upgraded to 'Level 7' in Drozdy and Dominikovo.
Once the new tracks are operational I will provide a before-after map for each Project.

Greetings,

'Odin'

Research:
The Reliability (Level 3) of our BT-5 Light Tanks has been improved thanks to the efforts of our Navy Researchers
Armoured Car Armour (Level 1) is now being looked at, as our BDRM-1's could barely be called 'Armoured', they were mostly just big cars with a lower steel sheet body instead of the normal cabin, and a very potent 12,7mm DShK Heavy Machine-gun in a turret on top.
Our Medium Tanks, the T-28's were also found to be lacking in armour, and a new 30mm steel Armour (Level 1) design is ready for implementation in both new T-28's and new Su-76 Tank Destroyers.
Research in this area continues with even better Medium Tank Armour (Level 2) to come.

Once the new tracks are operational I will provide a before-after map for each Project.

Scratch that! it's a lot more work than I thought it would be (I want to do it properly, and make it so that the scales and the framing match, I'm an Architecture student so I'm a bit obsessive that way), so I will only be doing before-after shots after several upgrades. I did do one, but it took too long, so this statement is no longer accurate. You know I also like to play the game once in a while, and do general real life stuff...

As a consolation prize, for those expecting all of them, here is the one I made:

this is what progress looks like, 3 provinces at a time... Left: Initial Situation, Right: Situation on the 1st of August.

Research:
Our team of Electronics experts finished their work on a design for an Encryption Machine (Level 1), this should prevent the enemy from getting sensitive intel when they eavesdrop on our radio communications.
They are now looking into Radar (Level 1) technology, bouncing waves off objects should help us determine their location, be it our objects, or our enemies'... The resulting Radar Stations should also be able to intercept radio communications from afar.

Research:
A design for a basic Aircraft Carrier has been delivered by our Researchers, a name for the new class of ships has not yet been agreed upon.
Bearn.jpg

The Aicraft Carrier design should look something like the French Carrier Bearn, considering our stolen French technology, and the fact that both our new design and the Bearn would be based on similar-sized Battleship Hull Designs (Normandie-Class and Gangut-Class respectively), the Bearn is still slightly more advanced though.
Half of the Carrier designers have been tasked with developing a new, more powerful Destroyer Engine (Level 3), the other half were sent away to train officers (0,4) and spies (0,1).
The Reliability (Level 2) of our T-28 Medium Tanks has been greatly improved thanks to recent design changes.
The Researchers were tasked with designing a better Gun (Level 3) for our Armoured Cars.
Ammunition & Muzzle Velocity (Level 3) of our Anti-Tank weapons have been greatly improved, the Artillery experts were sent away to train specialised officers for our growing number of Support Regiments.

Some of the brand new factories around the Urals have taken over some of the tasks formerly handled by the shipbuilders workshops in Sevastopol (mostly T-18, and SU-85 hulls and turret armour plating). This has left an opening for a new project. Chief of the Navy Mikhail V. Viktorov was happy to learn that his shipyards in Sevastopol were allowed to start building ships again... He was even happier when Stalin approved his plan to build another Aircraft Carrier:

The hull of a new Moskva-Class Escort Carrier CVL has been laid down in Sevastopol, the new ship will, ironically, be called Leningrad, (where it's sister ship, the Moskva is being built, and about halfway to commissioning).

Now, had Viktorov read the fine print of the order, he would have seen a CVL was approved for construction instead of the full CV he had asked for, which was a lot bigger, but crucially was deemed to expensive (More than twice the price of the CVL) by both the Kremlin, and the Secret Committee at this stage. I guess he will find out when the ship is built, and it's not quite as big as he had hoped.
His predecessor, now in our Committee Vladimir M. Orlov agreed with the final (CVL) plan, despite his personal preference for Cruisers, as it would be very inefficient to build small amounts of several different ship types. Better to concentrate on 1 type of Capital Ship, and 1 type of Escort, the Destroyer was selected here as our Escort's speed is key to keeping enemy gun-based ships away from our carriers, also our Destroyer technology isn't too far behind. Orlov was quick to point out the need for additional Destroyer Construction in the near future, as without the 2 CVL, our Capital/Escort ratio is only 2/1, which would be the bare minimum for our Carriers, 3/1 would be optimal for small Carrier task Forces, Orlov reckoned.

The 9th of September 1938, Moscow safe house near the Kemlin, 2,6°C, 5pm Moscow Time,

I had been pouring over the specifications of the new planes being produced by our Sukhoi, and MiG Aircraft Factories, they have just started building the planes for our Moskva-Class Carriers, we need about 100 per Carrier, this would mean that some can be cannibalized or kept in reserve on support ships during Carrier operations. Each Carrier will get about 50 modified MiG-3 Fighter-Bombers, and 50 modified Sukhoi Su-2 for naval dive bombing. Designers have also helpfully provided a spot to attach an, Air-launched Torpedo, in anticipation of the development, or theft of such Torpedoes.

Both VIktorov, and Orlov insist that these planes should be run by the Navy, as having the VVS run the planes and the Navy run the ship would slow things down on board, not to mention the additional VVS officers on board taking up valuable space. They argued that the planes are a Carrier's Guns, and should be treated as such. Yakov V. Smushkevich, ex Chief of the Air Force, agreed as he had always seen the VVS as a provider of Support to the Army, to this effect the VVS and Army chain of Command were intertwined. Adding to this role the running of Naval Aviation, especially on a Carrier run by the navy, just seemed overly complicated.

The denomination "Krylo palubnoy aviatsii" (Deck Aviation WIng, or Carrier Air Group depending on who (which website) is translating) will be used for these new Air Groups. As such the two CAG's that just entered production will bear the denominations 1. KPA and 2. KPA.

No pictures of these Aircraft are available yet. (I might take the time to Photoshop a MiG-3 onto the deck of a early WWII CV)

Now in looking over these documents, I was disturbed by the phone. It was 'Tri', again...

"The Germans are at it again, after Austria, they have now taken possession of the Sudetenland, and with it of the Czech Forts designed to stop a German Invasion! You haven't even heard the worst part yet... Chamberlain, and Sarraut (Instead of the historical Daladier), they just let it happen, Hitler had invited them to Munich, told them a story about oppressed German Minorities, and about how Germany would be prepared to go to war for the Sudetenland... The Czechs said no, of course... but then the Allies said they wouldn't declare war on Germany if it took possession of the Sudetenland... the Czechs had to fold, as they made no chance against the Germans all alone. Mussolini was there to, and he was clearly trying to gain Hitler's favour, as they have very similar fascist Ideologies. Now maybe we should look into acquiring territory like these lying Fascists, maybe Finland? I sure hope we won't go down the road of those weak Capitalists.... Chamberlain... < chuckle > ... You know what he said when he landed in London... He said there would be 'Peace in our Time" (mocking voice)... crazy man... but funny...funny...<Laughter>..."

Neville-Chamberlain-Peace-In-Our-Time.jpg

Chamberlain delivering his hilarious 'Peace in our time" speech...
At least he is giving us Russians a good laugh.
Well as you can see, 'Tri' is clearly going crazy with all these unbelievable events going on, but it is clear Hitler will not stop, and his military could pose a threat, we still have Poland though, but what could a couple of horsemen do against an Army of German Panzers, with hundreds of Luftwaffe bombers overhead... It would buy us time however. I guess we should watch Poland Carefully.

Here is a map with the agreed upon border changes of the Treaty of Munich:

Munich1.jpg

The, now German, line of Forts clearly shows where the border used to be... Now the Germans have a fortified Border with the Czechs, instead of the other way around, just by moving the border... How could the Allies possibly ignore this?
I'll leave you with this, overheard in the corridors after the meeting by one of our France-based spies:
"This is Madness!" (Attaché to the Czech Head of Government, Milan Hodza)
"This is Munich." (Aide to the German Foreign Minister, Constantin von Neurath)
Greetings,

'Odin'

If you want to improve the Navy wouldn't putting a few spies in Japan help with that?

Theoretically, that would seem like the smart thing to do. The reason my spies were initially in France was simply that they catch very few spies, so with a very small investment I can keep up a presence of 10 spies in France easily...and most of the time they are there they can concentrate on stealing technology. The UK was always a bit more aggressive in counterespionage duties, but has only recently become really effective against my spies, I guess that with their neutrality going down they could adopt better press laws for counterespionage, or they just started investing more into spy hunters (You know right after I stole UK technology for the first time). Leadership is in very high demand right now, with a low officer ratio (less than 83%), and the need to have a competitive army for Barbarossa. As my spies in the UK have to do more and more Counterespionage to stay alive, and less and less actual espionage (note the absence of any thefts of technology since the Gloster Sea Gladiator Blueprints, in the meantime we've got CVL, Naval Bombers, and CA Main Armament from the French) maybe a shift to Japan should be attempted, as they should have pretty decent Carrier Technology. I guess the Japanese couldn't be more aggressive than the UK right now.
If I want to do both, that would probably mean at least doubling my investment in spies. Do you, Eurasia, think it would be worth it cutting down even more on the Research of the new DD Engine, to get spies in Japan? or would a shift to Japan, with a temporary spy training boost do the trick? (for numbers on espionage see previous update). I might always get lucky and steal better DD Engines, but nothing is certain... . Anyway thanks for reminding me to look also to the east...

Production of Polikarpov I-16's has been halted to make space for the production of MiG-3's and Su-2's for the Navy.
Navy:
No changes in Navy numbers and leadership for the last ten days
Production has started on the Navy's first Carrier Air Groups, 1 and 2. KPA, they will consist of redesigned MiG-3's and Su-2's, purpose-built for carrier operations.
Politics / International:
No legislative changes
The Treaty of Munich was signed, handing Germany Sudetenland, without firing a single shot.
Industry:
Industry Numbers:
The 2 new Industrial Complexes in Ufa and Magnitogorsk are about halfway done gearing up, with some production already taking place.

Other: 0 / 0 / 0 / 3
Total: 20 / 1 / 1 / 3
Spy training leadership expenditure: 0,43
Reserve: 4
The KGB has temporarily stopped sending spies to the UK, for now, spending on spy training was increased, in anticipation of sending spies to Japan, following a suggestion by external Secret Committee member Eurasia. Potentially this move could increase the quality and amount of naval technology we steal for our navy. It is only logical that the increase in spy training comes out of the navy's research budget. Unless we steal foreign designs, new Destroyer Engines are now more than year away.
Research:
A new Light Tank Engine (Level 3) is ready for production, it's a surprise that it took so long to develop, as it is essentially the previous Medium Tank Engine (Level 1), the Mikulin M-17, with some minor modifications it has been called the Mikulin M-17t, and will boost the cruising speed of our BT-5's to 9,5 kph.
A new type of vehicle is now being developed, Self-Propelled Artillery will essentially be a large Artillery Gun mounted on tracks for added mobility, with some armour plating to protect it, it should be perfectly able to keep up with our Armoured Columns, and provide them with Artillery support on the offensive.

I don't think you should ever cut down on research if you can help it. That's more important than a shot-in-a-dark spying is. I say the spy training with a shift to Japan if the UK is such a problem to spy on (as you pointed out).

I had the same reflection, this shift has started but will take some time to complete.

That's more important than a shot-in-a-dark spying is.
That's a fair description of the tech espionage mechanism, although without it, you wouldn't be reading about Soviet Carriers in 1938, and it is going to be the main part of my navy research for a while... I can only justify having a partially funded Navy project going at any one time. Well until I'm confident that I can divest a bit from land doctrines, officers etc. So probably, fingers crossed, when my troops are standing in Berlin. Luckily some of the Aircraft & Air Doctrine research will strengthen my CAG's considerably.

Research:
Supply Production technology has been improved once more (Level 5) we will be able to produce more of them for less once we start producing them of course.
The team behind the new supply-producing machines has started working on a Decryption Machine (Level 1), which should help us decipher our enemy's coded radio transmissions, once we build radar stations.
Training for our FIghter Ground Crews (Level 3) has again been improved, which will mean faster repairs, and better morale for our Fighter Units, CAG's should also see a slight benefit
The Ground Crew Training team proceeds with devising better Ground Crew Training (Level 3) procedures for our CAS and Carrier Based Aircraft.
