RE: Axis And Allies D-Day units
Soviets- I personally like both New soviet united Hero of the Soviet Union is a reasonable Soldier and the Su76M will come in handy. (Course that’s coming from 1) a Communist and 2) A guy who plays with a Soviet Army)
U.K- Paratroopers are always useful, Churchill AVRE (especially when your enemy has spent a bunch of points of mine field :|),
U.S- M16 Half track can come in handy, and the 81mm mortar is always good (A mortar in an army is always useful)
Canada- Canadians are cool, so I have a friend who uses them as part of the british army. The units are all very basic. I like the infantrymen.
French- um…French + war = :?..massacre don’t use them
Germany- Germany always seems to throw out maybe not the best but very basic balanced units. Aircraft I would avoid since practically anything can blow it up. The MG-42 sand bagged team is fun, and 88mm flak is put into a good defensive position will cause pain to the enemy. Grizzled Veterans (german hero) very good units. In reality you could build a very stable german army using the D-day set.
Italy- received one unit, the L3/35, it’s reasonable.
Japan- Honor Bound Hero, like many Japanese units if you can get it in close enough to do some hand-to-hand combat it’s a 10 (I think) Like italy they only got one unit but it’s useful to the Japanese Army.
