By flexible, I mean any build that’s not all-in, like major IC or huge ground force off the bat. In this case (practice game against myself), I built 1AC/2TT, which I (perhaps wrongly) consider flexible in that it doesn’t hurt too bad to switch to full ground G2/onwards.
Excellent point on Italians preventing the deadzone–thanks for that! Couple of followup questions though: What is the difference to Russian responses for Yugo capture/strafe (assuming no Japan invasion T1)? Is the AC/2TT considered an optimal flexible buy? Is G6 or G7 a better goal for capturing Moscow?
