There are no early victories in A&A revised. Plan on winning the long game. Buy lots of infantry and find a way to equalize the IPC production. The best way to do this is take Africa, but Northern Russia and Caucasus are another way to do this.
I do disagree.
Rare it may be, but there’s at least one way for Germany to try to finish Russia as quickly as possible on Revised - with a 8/9 bid place 1 inf/art on Belorussia and 1 armor in E. Europe and pray that the Russians have at least average losses while attacking West Russia and any other territories. On G1 buy 8 armor and hit the Russian stack on West Russia with everything that can hit it and send everything towards Russia (including the inf and armor on Libya to Ukraine). Afterwards pray for decent dice and that the UK/US doesn’t land too soon in Europe.
