minor on egypt rest infantry to defend UK. shut italy down in sz 9 with convoy disruption. usa just needs to get 2 subs for normandy/south france.
What usa does depends on japan at this point, but round 1, I recommend 2 carriers destroyer couple subs for usa. atlantic side you just have to bring the convoy disruption and a destroyer for any lurking subs.
Give brazil to UK if he has a starting transport remaining.
if UK pac is not being threatened because japan is doing some ruskie/china play… get mechanized infantry with UK PAC you can assist russia’s belly. uk can fly his air into russia
thing is both UK and UK pac will be side by side if UK pac lives. USA can fly air from japan’s sea zone to suiyuan to russia. so you will get air reinforcements into russia one way or another.
The USA supply train to russia going full pacific is pretty simple. west USA flies to japan’s seazone from japan sea zone you fly to suiyuan then you fly to russia.
USA could also provide the destroyer/carriers for uk to disrupt 97, if you do this it would have to be early on in round 1.
usually uk is in the belly (medit sea) because he pulls the pacific stuff he has over and a minor in egypt pretty much shuts down italy from any hope of africa play. also the drops there as much better because they are away from factories when you hit greece for example and you threaten rome directly.
if you do split income, just provide uk with fleet so he can do drops off UK as well. or you can just get bombers for the atlantic side and clear pockets out. land in russia after archangel is gone. bomb minors if they dont have enough interceptors, hit small pockets of units, and if he attacks russia, bombers may roll at 1 only but they are still cannon fodder, I might not lose them on the first round if the fight looks about even… but it is nice to have extra fodder.
Remember the key is getting russia tobruk and libya and somalia (russia will only have 1 or 2 mech/tank units down there so you have to protect it with uk / usa. ethiopia too if it works out that way… you need to stall germany. come round 5 you need units in range of russia at least… depends on how mechanized germany is which determines when you start flying air into russia.
All mech germany = start flying stuff into russia sooner. watch for a late game middle east / egypt rush with mech.
I like my russia with 2 inf 1 artillery ratio for this reason or 1.5 inf : 1 artillery. I can push out and blow up if he leaves.
