In my opinion (sorry for english, hope it will be clear):
Strategic Bombing in first turns: risk a useful bomber for some IPC…. I SBR only if not AA against japs or if a power is in a very bad economic situation
1. Attack Manchuria
Russia will loose fast the asian front because of powerful Japan counter. Russian inf is more useful late in the game against japs. And can retraeat if things in Germany are going very bad.
Russian fighter cannot defend Karelia if attack Manchuria. That can be a disater if you loose other fight in baltic.
1. Attack Egypt
Why give the uk an easy counter from India?
2. Not to attack every uk ship
That force uk to spend a lot in rebuild his fleet (that is a problem if uk cant count on africa and india IPC) and prevent a debarkment in africa on uk 1
