Very Hard AI: PACT
Very Hard AI have the same decks that Hard AIs do but have more deployment points
Tips & Other Stuff
  • All AI love to use Air support and Artillery/Mortar support extensivlly, but some decks with low range AA can be exploited to use bombers to take out artillery/mortars, especially when they are firing from a deployment route.

  • Be weary that when facing the 510th, 75th, 129th, 131th and 134th motorized/tank regiments that the AI will have an abundence of either T-80Bs or T-80BVs, sometimes even both, so you might have to use heavier armor, or extensive use of powerful air support to counter this.

  • If you are having a hard time catching the AIs Bombers, keep an Air Superiority Fighter circling around in freindly airspace that is protected by AA and wait for the AI to send out its bombers and intercept them.

  • Keep in mind that these do not actually show the actual # of units/veterancy and other stuff since AI can have diffrent amount of veteranized units, for example: It can have more T-80Bs that are all rookies which gives the AI more tanks when you really can't have Rookie T-80Bs.

  • Some updates have changed certain units in AI decks, so this might change over time. Plus some decks are not the most accuarate when it comes to Air support, because some of the Easy AIs don't deploy air support until late game, so I don't have a chance to copy it.

Currently, it's the 3rd Commando Brigade, and the 75th Gds. Tank Regiment, but some keep reappering/disappearing on refreshes.

Somehow, they've rebroken

useful, thx!

Not really, the decks in teh Campaign have diffrent amount of support units, for example: the 227th Guards tank Regiment in Campaign has alot more support avalible compared to the amount of support the AI uses in Skirmish. Iv'e watched the AI in Skirmish as my ally, and write down what ever he delpoys, and he dosent deploy 2S-3 Akastiyas or BM-21s.

Did you know that the decks are the same ones as the ones from campaign? You could just take screenshots of the stats from the campaign screen.
