A territory for the Germans impossible to control. The land is too big.

You're welcome Fredrik.

As to what the line represents, it was the intended target of operation Barbarossa... to reach the line Arkhangelsk-Astrakhan ! Wildly optomistic, obviously.

The Germans intended the Arkangelsk-Astrakhan line to be the border of Europa (which were considered into European Russia) and Asia and i believe, if the war had gone the Germans way, they would erect the Ostwall at this line

From what I understand this line was indeed to be reached in 1941. Hitler however talked about extending the line further on to the Ural mountains at a later point. In his table talk Hitler supposedly says that the final line would be 200 to 300 kilometers east of the Urals. That was to be the place where the great east wall was to be built to guard the frontier of the Great Germanic empire.
