Okay change the active card to 9a - Molotov Diplomacy. Figure it's okay to just post since it's the active card and not pending.

Seasonal Phase

TK - Add one RUS infantry step to Minsk.

DS - Add one KAN 1-1-1 Exp infantry step to Yenan (5021).

I'll resolve the rest after the TK card political roll.

IT IS SAID THE TEARS OF THE BWEENIX CAN HEAL ALL WOUNDS



So, ignorant viewer question on unit strengths. Are there much stronger units later, once the big guns start coming out? Or are units generally pretty small/weak and combat just has smaller numbers (doesn't matter w.r.t. crt of course)? I'm just asking based on, oh, mostly seeing 3/4, or 6/6, or units like that, whereas here I'm seeing a lot of 1/1, 1/2, etc.

Units in DS tend to be pretty weak overall. Germans get the best units eventually, with the panzer armies usually being the best.

For Japan and China, what you see is about it. The Soviets will get several two-step units with 5 and 4 values in Europe, the West will get three-steppers with 6 and 7 values in both theaters, and the Germans will get 6-6-3 and 8-6-4 three-steppers. Incidentally, the best unit in the game is the US army commanded by Patton, which is a 9-7-3.
