Sorry my post was confusing. I don’t think the Yugo strafe is a good idea unless it is part of a plan to take Moscow on G5. In that case, I would probably take in enough force to average 3 hits (18 punch), so as to avoid getting 5 hits if possible.
If G bought art/inf, there would be little benefit to strafing, since the art/inf on Germany plus the Bulgarian inf can’t reach Moscow till G6.
This strategy has potential in low luck (where you can get exactly 4 hits) but is probably too dicey for dice. It’s just an idea and I don’t have concrete experience with it.
In practice, I almost never strafe Yugo in a dice game, since I don’t aim for G5 Moscow. It’s better for Germany to have that money. There are also good reasons for Germany to get Southern France and Greece, though G can’t expect to get them every game.
