Not much seem to have change in the east, Russia and China continue the fights in this area, without any of them getting a clear advantage.
To the east, Kazakhstan and China are also at combat, but again here, it doesn't seem to have change much since the beginning of our war.
After some thoughts, the best option for us seems to continue our offensive to the west along the south road of the Gobi desert (show as a big arrow in the screenshot).
As a green Y is marked the city of Yinchuan, recently conquered by us. Our first objective would be the area around Lanzhou, a big city of 1.7 mill people, marked with the number 2. Once this keypoint is taken, we will advance along the road towards the northwest to the actual Kazakhstan border. It its a very long trip from over two thousand kilometers, just to get a reference on how big this country is.

The area marked with a 3 belongs to the more mountanous regions and will be included as an objective of the offensive depending on how strong the chinese defenses and counter offensives result. In case it can't be taken at the same time as the main offensive area (number 2), it should be attacked just after arriving at the Kazakhstan border. South of area 3 chinese and indian forces fight all over these gigantic himalayan area.
Well, this is our plan. We have even a name for the next mission. Everything seems ready, everything but our military.
Again we suffer under almost no manpower reserves. Our actual 14 mill people are still not enough, though our economic data are slighly better (41% inflation, 1,2% unemployment).

This means that our offensive will be slow. We will continuily have to wait to our manpower to fill the casualties ranks, as well as to man the new produced units. It makes no sense yet to construct more military facilities. Population is still our most valuable and scarce resource, good that China has enough to spend some to us. We must move, as fast as we can, but still, it will be a slow advance.
Oh well, so are things and delaying our offensive will not make things better. Lets go west. Let our second offensive begin.
