PACT Infantry choise which is better Motostrelki / Morskaja Pechota ?
you like more the Motostrelki or the Morskaja Pechota ?

What is better for Infantry, cheap Inf but more - or more Quality but less ?

Because i speak russian i translate for you

Motostrelki: Motorized Infantry (Army)

Morskaja Pechota: Marine Infantry (Navy)

should i buy one unit Motostrelki with the BMP-1P (it has anti tank rockets, which are very usefull) for Ambushing and defence.

You should consider using VDV instead.

Quality vs quantity is kind of a subjective thing. It depends on what other units are in your deck and how you use them. Give each choice a trial run and adjust as needed.

I tend to have a mix; I tend to have all three cards of motostrelki (one veteran with the BTR for fast moving infantry at the start of a game) and possibly a card of the VDV in an attack chopper. You can get more of the motostrelki per card but more importantly you can also get them with the BMP 2. The mixture of the motostrelki squad and the BMP 2 is deadly.

The VDV I use as fast reinforcements during a push or as required on the defense, which also come with a capable, fast and survivable armour-killing troop carrier.

I personally prefer quantity for those games that may countinue till the timer ends, so I use Moto's with BMP-1D's with the gernade launcher it's very effective at taking towns. Make sure to use Sapery's too which every deck should have, which are highly effective for forests or dense towns(with support from rifle infantry).

+1 for VDV

Motostrelki if you want cheap basic line infantry. VDV are very good for buildings in a relatively open field next to a road as their long range RPG is best utilized there, while it minimizes the fact that their anti infantry ability is not on par with other 20 pt. squads. I try to have 5-7 squads of infantry in all of my non specialized decks, about 2-3 being line/anti inf infantry (one in choppers) while the others are manpads and atgm. Morskaja Pechota I find to be not worth how much they cost, but that is just me.

Marines price are too high. Use motostrelki+spetsnaz combo.
