I just returned from the southwest tourny where I played a russian tank army. It is a very good army if you are rolling the dice well. I took second in the tourny, lost to US Mech, which I think is the best force out there right now. If my air in one game hadn't knocked out 2 panthers, I am sure I wouldn't have finished so high. Limitations, Hens and chicks, Russian tanks can only move 6 inches if they still wish to fire. Must be within 2 inches of each other, very close for air attack or artillery strike. They are conscripts, that means everything hits them, start at a 2 plus on a 6 sided dice. I used BA10s in a Kursk Battle we did before the tourny. The 45mm gun is nice, but they are classed wheeled, so off road they move very slow. There are not many roads in russia. The 152s, only get 1 shot. So if you are dueling Tigers, you have one turn to hit because the next turn you are dead. Russians are good, you just need to understand there limitations. Write if you have any other questions. Terry

Mech armies seem to be pretty nice, you have mobility, firepower, etc. But from what i know, some mech armies dont pack enough antitank, or to much anti tank. Now a tank force is fast, hard hitting, but with my german army. I also added infantry to dig in at an objective with a tiger atatched to their platoon so tanks cant get to close to mow them down. I also have a small artillery battery for various reasons. But I have only played one game, but have done a lot of research. The best person to talk to is deather glory otherwise known as terry.

You ever want to have a game, just let me know. The new rules V2, as they are calling it, is a different game. You will find artillery can kill any tank out there so you can't just sit back and allow continual artillery fire to fall on your armor. Terry
