during G3 i would buy infantry and place in karelia and Poland. They get to Russia at about the same time as if i bought them in G1. The infantry in Polandand karelia are closer know and can be used as fodder and defense sooner then if I moved them from Germany.

RE: Anyone tried KIF (Kill Italy First)
The best thing I have found that keeps Japan in check is having the US Build a factory in Alaska and place navy armada in seazone 64.
This does a couple of things:
Bombers placed in Alaska can strategic bomb Japan.
The US can threaten to invade Japan during the next turn.
The US can land units in Russia and threaten Japans Asia control.
Most importantly it forces Japan to keep buying a navy instead of ground units in order
to protect Japan.
Germany and Factories
I am just gonna through this strategy out there and see what people think. I am new to this board so I am not sure if it has been discussed before so I apologize in advance.
Germany’s main problem (in my opinion) against Russia is the lack of infantry and amount of territories between G Factory and the Russian front. Germany players I have played against rarely buy infantry mainly because it takes to long to get them in the battle against Russia. My strategy is as follows. G1 might be familiar but, Ill find out soon.
G1 buys 3 tanks and one bomber. Save 4 dollars for R&D next turn.
Germany’s major goal is to take Karelia. To do this use 2 infantry from Finland, 3 fighter, 1 bomber, ((1 infantry from Germany, 1 tank from Poland) Transport) Germany has an 89% of winning.
Other territories to take are Baltic States and East Poland. Use Chech tanks for Baltic and Poland units for East Poland.
Sea Battles: Use 2 subs and 1 fighter against British battleship and transport. (might get away with 2 subs but this is a must win battle) Cruiser and sub in SeaZone 5 to take out British cruiser.
Other: If you feel your artillery can take out E Poland then send extra tank to Ukraine and capture it.
If all above was successful you should have 35 ipc (37 w/Ukraine). Purchase 4 tanks and one factory. with saved money and 2 ipc from Urkraine but R&D or an extra tank.
If Karelia was lost to Russia focus on taking that back again by using transport if it survived.
By this time I either start strategic bombing UK or use bombers to help take out Egypt.
land fighters in Poland and make sure it is protected during Russia’s turn (possible from British transport).
What this does is that it allows Germany to place infantry and or tanks closer the Russian front. With Poland and Karelia pumping out units it is easier to defend and launch attack from.
Also Germany should constantly strategic bomb Russia (Britain only if Japan is having a tough time). Germany’s units should be focused on Russia. The defence of France should be left to Italy.
Eager to hear any thoughts on this approach.
