Safe Russia strategy



  • Well adding 2 airbases also gets the US fighters there 3 turns from when US gets at war and while they are there they defend destroyers put in the med to screw with Italian NO.
    This means less can opening for italy because less money.
    And anything floating in the med is also subject to air attack of fighters moving towards russia.

    So your fighters suddenly have 3 uses.
    1 defend UK ships in the med
    2 Attack italian ships in the med and by proxy defend afrika
    3 Flying to russia.

    And it saves 1/2 carriers for the allied to defend against the german airforce near gibraltar.

    Wish us luck and no trash talk to ShadowHAwk for taking on the challenge. He deserves only repect for this hard mission. At the end of the day, he might even win. Pay attention guys (and girls if any)!



  • I attack the second term with my main attack in the south as the Germans.  my third term I have tanks in position to hit at Leningrad and Ukraine which I can grab by turn four.  As the Russian player,  I usually wont build anything for Russia until the 3rd turn or attacked.  I grab Iraq when at war or on my fourth, I usually invite USA player over to East to bomb japan for their so what about lend lead money if you can keep them out keeping you focused on Germany which should be Russia’s main goal.  If not attacked by Germany by the fourth I try to grab Romania and upgrade the Ukraine factories for tank and mechanized infantry to drive into Balkans.

    Not sure if i get you but your saying you are not building anything untill round 3 with russia, so your saving money with them?

    That doesn’t seem right unless they are playing unlimited production or some other weird rule.

    @oysteilo:

    how are you getting UK fighters to moscow end of UK3 or UK4? Are you taking out italian navy or not?

    Speaking with only movement potential being considered (and not with the impact of taking these units from other duties):

    • 3 ANZAC fighters can make it to Russia on A4, assuming that Japan does nothing to impede them on J1/2.

    • UK India can build four mechanized infantry on UK1, which make it to Russia on UK5.

    • UK planes (3 fighters and two tactical bombers) can make it to Russia on UK3 if the UK activated Persia on UK1.

    • An MIC build in Persia on UK2 can land three fighters in Russia on UK4 (built them turn 3, fly them on turn 4).

    • An MIC build in Egypt on UK1 can land three fighters in Russia on UK4 (build turn 2, land Persia turn 3, land Russia turn 4

    That is more than enough firepower to stop a G6 attack on Moscow, if Russia is prudent and builds nothing but infantry and pulls the Siberian forces towards Moscow.

    One of the Anzac fighters can reach by turn 3: Shan State->E Persia->Moscow. All can reach with a neutral crush.

    Siberian troops can’t reach before a G6 attack though.



  • The allies can get plenty of stuff there if they want to. Persia factory can be used to create mechs and air. Mechs are nice to clear out small pockets of german forces ( ukrain factory for instance ) to slow down german reinforcements while the air at least gets to shoot while flying to moscow.

    Doing taranto depending on how things went you have 1-2 fighters and 1 tactical on malta, these can all be on russia areas round 2 and be in moscow round 3 easy.

    But why round 3? Germany isnt going to be near moscow round 3 even with a G1 they will he hard pressed to get there and will most likely not be in reach of moscow untill G5
