Don’t know whether it has been posted or not, but here is MY opening. I buy 2 inf 2 art 2 arm.

3 inf Kar to Bel

3 inf Arc to Bel

2 inf 1 fig Cau to Ukr

1 bom Rus to Ukr

1 inf 1 art 1 arm Cau to Euk

3 inf 1 art 2 arm Rus to Euk

If I have a bid greater than 5, I throw 1 inf Egy, and 1 inf (or more) into either Cau or Rus. Those units attack Euk as well. I place 2 inf 2 arm in Cau, 2 art in Rus, with 2 inf Nov coming into Russia. Bomber and Fighter of Ukr for Cau.
