Why can’t Russia buy inf round 1? Do they already have 20 inf? Why is China neutral when it was the first allied nation at war?
Russia starts with all twenty infantry on the board. This is actually less than they start with in MB’s 2nd edition.
As for China, it was neutral but pro U.S. - a mechanic which was dropped from A&A. I can’t say why, you’d have to ask Larry.
