      So I am new to this game, and I was pondering the viability of a WW2-ish force. As I am playing as Soviet Russia, for this build in particular, I was wondering if it would be beneficial to utilize a mix of:

      Medium Tanks
      Artillery Pieces
      Infantry of a wide variety (not militia, IK)
      Interceptors and tactical bombers
      SPAAG and anti aircraft in general

      While on the Naval aspect I just hear "DD spam!!!" and pretty much nothing else.

      1. Medium tanks - use them.
      2. Artillery - don't use them except in large numbers, and definitely not in 'hand-to-hand' combat. Use them to bombard units but don't use them to fight.
      3. I'd say use normal infantry, and later on motorised.
      4. Yes, use interceptors and TBs.
      5. Yes, but don't make too many AAs and SPAAGs. One per 15-20 units (in a stack) is enough.
      6. Whoever said "DD Spam" is stupid. If you start with a large surface fleet (aka not subs), build more surface ships. If you don't start with a big one, build subs.

      Yes, before a single sub could wipe out an infinite (literally) number of units in convoys. Now they can only kill about 50 :D So use them.

    • Ahh..


      well, USSR

      marine wise
      decide if you want to invest in
      1. Full navy
      2. Operational navy
      3. Strike force
      I usually go by these.. full navy includes carriers, and a carrier group
      Operational navy, simply just make destroyers and battleships
      Strike force, get a bunch of subs, stacks in 7-8s ( kinda less useful now, they ruined submarines)
      Id recommend just working on a strike force if even.. really its not even needed a good army, and you can take all of europe, then worry about USA and Canada

      Id abandon the standard Art ideas.
      stick to Light and medium tanks
      and Have SP AA, and SP Art
      reason being, might be hard to cover every square of USSR with aircraft, so a few SP AA, will be useful

      USSR, is vast and hard to maintain a air network
      But if you plan on going ahead with the air force, make sure you can fly your TB from the top to bottom


      if you are new, and I can be of help, message me, and I can offer some tips and maybe if you want we can have a private game, and I will show you some tactics and strategies

      I am not clueless. It obviously depends of the level your sub is.

    • 1) Medium tanks are not really worthwhile compared to Light Tanks in great numbers
      2) Artillery (both types) can be extremely useful, especially in "slow conquers" and against an enemy without planes.
      3) Infantry is fine. Motor infs aren't really worth the research either, but can be good against some types of armor and of course, other infantry types.
      4) Yes, use planes.
      5) One AA pr 15-20 units is not enough.
      6) DDs are great especially with battleships
      7) One sub cannot kill 50 units in a convoy. It would get killed fast.
