A Russia who builds exclusively Infantry and Artillery will have more land units than Germany will by G5.
I would absolutely LOVE it if I as Germany faced a Russia with lots of units on the front lines! It would make it easy to carve up Russia's army piecemeal.
Russia should buy Inf/Artillery and mass into a couple big armies... constantly giving up ground for time. When opportunity arises, counter attack those German tank stacks and you will blunt the German spear.
how's that possible?
every round germany has more money than russia, and a lot more starting troosp aswell
so how can USSR have more land units than germany? not even mentioning attacking the german stack...
I haven't crunched the numbers myself, but this could be possible if Russia buys Cheaper units an Germany buys expensive tanks.
Sorry Zooooma, I got this a bit off topic.
No problem - tangents happen. I found the initial responses quite helpful; besides which I'd planned to start a new thread as soon as I've devised a more concrete plan anyway.
As for sending Russian units eastward. The best they can do is go all the way East, above Manchuria/Korea, because unless Japan and Russia engage each other, they are not at war. The rules specify that Russia cannot send units into China unless Russia is at war with Japan.
But you can simply declare war against Japan and then move into China. Really there's zero
drawback in declaring war. You don't lose a thing, and Japan doesn't gain.
