Dear Mr. Wildcats:
Welcome to the Axis and Allies forums. Please allow me to explain what I believe are the keys to achieving victory for the Allies in your situation:
Russia is the most important place to hold. Buy a mix of infantry, artillery, and tanks, or just infantry and tanks. Combine your air force, tanks, and most of your infantry into one massive stack to counter German stacking. Retreat, let them extend their supply lines, and then when the time comes that they are bordering Moscow, launch your massive counterattack with infantry, mechs, tanks, and aircraft, destroying them and losing only infantry. Then, once the critical European battle has been won, buy mechs and tanks and retake your territories.
You should be making 72 IPC’s per turn: focus them all on Germany and Italy. Japan is a waste of time, money, and ships. The Allies must work together to win in Europe and ignore Japan as much as possible, like DonRay advised back in the days of the original Axis and Allies game. Buy infantry, artillery, and transports, along with a few destroyers to protect them, and land in either Rome or Western Germany, preferably Rome, so that you can knock out Italy, take its IPC’s, and push into Europe. So go Atlantic, build up infantry and artillery on protected transports, and then go to Gibraltar, then from there 3 spaces to land in Rome.
Build up planes and ships, use your planes and infantry to kill the German tanks that will cost them a huge 6 IPC’s each to replace. Help America buy doing amphibious landings, but not into Rome like America, but rather into Norway, then take Finland, then into France, then Denmark and Western Germany. Build up defenses in South Africa and don’t lose it if possible, but even if you do you your income from Norway, Finland, and others should make up for it.
Build up infantry and defend, defend, and harass the Japanese when you can, but just do not fall and defend above all. A huge infantry stack maybe with a fighter or multiple fighters and one or more artillery/tanks should be good enough to hold out and harass the Japanese.
Build transports and land in the money islands, taking them and distracting Japan. Send fighters to sink their unprotected transports and be a nuisance in general.
Build up infantry and survive as long as you can, focusing on the Burma Road.
Hold out, Russia
America needs to land in Rome
Hold out and be annoying until you can go on offense AFTER Germany and Italy are done for.
Thanks and God Bless You,
