I send enough units to take WRus with enough to defend it, and I send in enough units to Ukraine to kill everything but the fighter. I dont like taking it, because that involves leaving armor on the front without any fodder.
I just started my first game online and am playing as the allies. I ended up taking West Russia with 7 Inf, 1 Art, 1 Arm and ended up taking Ukraine with 3 Arm because I was set on destroying that fighter. I don’t really know how to strafe properly but I will try beating up on Ukraine next time instead of taking it and see what happens. I also bought 3 Inf and 3 Arm for a little more firepower.
So yeah, on Germany 1 I am sure he will roll right over my 3 Arm I have sitting in Ukraine. Didn’t really think about strafing because I gained 3 IPC and he lost a valuable fighter. Plus I got a big stack in West Russia and 3 more Arm in Russia to head right back into Ukraine on Russia 2.
What can I say, I’m a noob!
