Hey you guys! I haven’t posted for a long long time, but I’ve found myself checking this forum daily, so I figured I’d join back into the fray that is AA. I’ve built a clone of Younggrasshopper’s table for my basement and am looking forward to finding players and getting back into playing this awesome game.
Anyway, the last two weeks while at work, I’ve utilized down time and found myself often wondering: what is the optimal purchases for the Soviet Union? I’ve parsed through YG’s videos, and every time I run through a Triplea game myself, I cringe when I buy a tactical bomber. I wondered if maybe the best bang for your buck would simply be infantry and artillery. 7 infantry and 4 artillery is 37, gives an equal defense (11 units defending at 2), and at the end of a few rouunds there’s many units and fodder. Another buy I’m fond of is 5 infantry, 4 artillery, and a tank.
I guess I’ve just been fascinated with trying to defend the onslaught of the Germans into the USSR with the least amount of help from outside sources (fighters flown to Moscow from the UK and USA), and I Guess It Gets Incredibly more difficult if the Japanese invade the east, but that’s another story. Which leads to another question. When the time comes that the USSR attacks the german main army stack in a major showdown, it always seems that the battle is barely won, or won with minimal troops left over, what is the best solution to this? After that, should the soviets go on the offensive, or turtle in Moscow?
Anyways, thanks for reading my post! If any of you think ive left something obvious out, please point it oit to me. I love this forum and look forward to further participation!
