I mean there aren't really many tricks or ways to level them up faster. It's all about maximizing score so the better you play in matches the quicker it will go. I suppose playing in matches that are mostly AI where you'll probably get more kills and subsequently a higher score could help it for faster but I wouldn't recommend that. Paying attention to the balance in game could also be helpful as the score penalty for playing on an unbalanced team can be very harsh.

As for the squads themselves, Alpenjager, Higherlanders, Chasseurs, and maybe Senegalese.

In coop, have a player using NCO that is actually issuing the attack command and that covers you with his aura, you get a quantity of bonus points. Remember to stay in the specific area and have all players in it, especially who uses the machine gun.
Recon squads are the worst by far, at least in coop. I haven't played multiplayer in a long while. I don't know why Soviet Partisan would recommend them. They lack MG, grenades, good support ability and have poor weapon variety. I would say avoid recon and go for whatever squad you like, especially ones with machine guns or gas support. Engineer squads are good but smoke is only useful in multiplayer. Personally, I like the Canadians.

I would say just keep playing and eventually your squad levels in every squad will level up. If you want to power level, I would go for the central squads because they have 5 squads for 5 types while in entente, you have duplicates assuming you will spend half of the time on central powers. Though honestly there isn't that much difference between low squad levels vs high squad levels

I don't play coop as It's extremely boring and lame.

In frontlines MG's are unimportant, Grenades are unimportant, Recon plane is the most useful ability, and weapon variety doesn't matter when you have access to all that matters which would be SMLEs and K98s.

Of course in squad defense which is nothing more than mindlessly mowing down hoards of AI that run in a straight line recon is not the best squad. Although squad defense is a sideshow which is not what the vast majority of people play.

Following my personal preference: Canadians, Schützen, Belgians, Hairy, Doughboys, Alpenjäger, Chasseurs.
I forgot to mention that I recommend Coop mode because you're pretty much guaranteed to get a quantity of points even if you're not yet familiar with all game mechanics.

Both MG and grenades are very useful assets if you know how to use them correctly.
What matters is the fun you have, since this is a videogame and not a chore. SMLE and Kar98 AZ are pretty much the best rifles in the game but tend to get very boring very quickly.
There's a few threads about how people find recon ability underpowered if not useless altogether.

MG's are worthless against competent players. They're static targets that are quickly killed when they play against anybody who's not terrible.

If you want to talk about playing for fun that's cool, but fun isn't relevant to the conversation of what are the best squads in the game.

The threads calling the recon plane "underpowered" tend to have a common theme, they're made by players 10-20 hours who have no clue what they're talking about. I had this conversation with somebody else in another thread actually. Of course to a newer player recon will seem bad. Lacking MG's, grenades, and having a limited range of weapons to many new players they will appear as weak or underpowered. Although once you develop an understanding of how the game works you come to understand how worthless MG's really are, how fruitless having a couple grenades is, the importance of forward spawning and just how powerful the recon plane is.

Recon squads are not easy to use but in the right hands they are easily the best squad.
