I was wondering whether after reaching the Pskov-Narva line, german attack would have fared better if AGN would have shifted forces south-east and form the north edge of an thrust on Moscow.
The 2nd Panzer would still have been shifted south to assist with the Kiev pocket, but the shift of AGN means germans would still be able to push on Moscow. Now, given historical RKKA resilience, I think that the initial attack still gets stymied and germans have to stop for 3-4 weeks in late August September (and to wait for the AGS and second Panzer to finish off the Kieve pocket and move back).
But if an ATL Typhoon is started in late September from the Rzhev-Vyazma-Bryansk line (on account of the more forceful german advance in the center), would german forces be able to envelop Moscow, as they hoped to do historicaly? Would they conquer Moscow and hold it, or would their thrusts be beaten back with smash-mouth Zhukovite tactics, in a Napoleon a la allemande?
