Re the 1 art 4 tank purchase on R1, it looks really unbalanced. But, if you move the inf in Eve+Kaz+Nov west on your first turn, you basically get 6 inf free, so it becomes a 6 inf 1 art 4 tanks purchase, which doesn’t look quite as unreasonable. I still gravitate toward either 4 inf 3 art or 3 inf 3 tanks, but I wouldn’t rule out 1 art 4 tanks.
Kind of my thoughts. I just wondered if anyone did it?
I think if you were ultra conservative with Russia and only attacked W. Russia with everything you had, you might be able to pull of this buy. It would result in more cash going to Germany on G1, but that could be survivable I think.
