Yeesh...
I just finished WG:EE, and I've got to say, AirLand Battle is an almost entirely different animal.

Is there any way to slow down the combat speed a little bit? I just played my first mission and basically got bum rushed by the enemy within the first 15 seconds. lol

Are there any mods out there that address these kinds of issues?

I don't believe there are any ways to slow down the action but there are a few things you can do (strategy wise) that 'should' slow the enemy rush:

1 - start playing vs easy opponents...and gradually work your way higher the better you become.

2 - send out a few infantry squads and hide them in forests/cities near intersections/roads that the enemy has to go thru to get to your important/base areas. They will ambush any enemy infantry/vehicles that try rushing thru those areas.

3 - Send out a few anti-aircraft weapons and hide them in forests close enough to protect your ambush infantry, but behind the infantry so the enemy has to go thru your infantry to kill your anti-aircraft weapons. Avoid putting them in open areas since enemy tanks will just sit back and kill them with long range firepower.

4 - Join my Wargame group. I posted about it in "Newbies and Veterans welcome!" We usually play together (and learn together) while killing computer opponents.

Hope some of that helps.

Thanks! I'll give that a try.

put infantry in choppers to gain access to defensive positions around chokepoints. use the shift key to que commands so you don't have to micro as much. if you do this at the start of the match you'll give yourself some breathing room to plan your defenses. remember to keep those frontline infantry supplied, it will greatly increase their survivability.

ReturnToForever is correct. Make sure to put infantry in either dense/heavy forests or cities...helps them survive alot better, and surprise enemies alot better.
Pay attention to their weapons: If you going for Anti-Tank infantry, higher AP (Armor Piercing) damage is best...but also look for good accuracy (if they can't hit a target, high AP won't make a big difference). Same with other infantry...make sure their weapons are best you can find to hit, and kill, the enemy.
One tactic I've used before (worked well) is put special forces/elite type infantry in forests near roads (they ambush enemies travelling those roads VERY well. And put my long distance Anti-Tank infantry in forests/buildings with alot of open area around them (or between them an roads) so they are hidden until enemies travel close by.
Just little suggestions to try.
