Russia’s abilities in AAR seem to have been a mistake (IMHO) by the creator. Back in the day, I had some pretty neat games where the United States mostly ignored Europe while Russia beat the ever livvin snot out of the Germans virtually single handedly. (You did need the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy to generate threat and reinforce of course.)
Talk to me about the Russian triple one day. I am not on that computer or I would repost it…won more games with that then any other version of Axis and Allies ever!
