Ah there you are,

For this guide you are required to have Soviet Industry Tactics.

Comrade! Use the power of our mighty tanks which comes from the Urals! Do not underestimate the power of Russian Tanks. Do not underestimate Russia itself! I shall show you how to get tanks by 10 Minutes!

Marshal Zhukov shall lead you to victory today!

Starting Your Game
Ok, so you have understood the basics for my guide. Now, when you start your game you would want to bulid,
x2 Conscripts
x1 Engineers

and cap fuel points or if not, cap regular points and and make fuel caches, makes diffucult for enemy to cap zone.

Dont buy ANY upgrades for conscripts.

So this is how you do it.

Send an Engineer to Cap the closest point to you and bulid a fuel cache while you bulid Conscripts.
After that, *skip tier 1 comrade, you dont want penals and capitalist M3's in your armies. And snipers too remember white death* bulid tier 2.

By the time you finish,

Impressive! Once your engineers come back you immediately start bulidling Tier 2.

Yay! Now you get to bulid MG's and mortars. They are your greatest asset. Wait, what about AT gun? Yes comrade, we will get to that later.
Let's get into it
Ok comrade, by now i can confirm that you have tier 2, da?

Next you would want to get this,

x2 MG
x1 Mortar
x1 Zis 3 AT

So this is how it goes,

The reason why you got x2 Conscript squads is because you want they to be bait and cap points. For example, before putting your MG in a position you would want to send in your Conscripts first, that way you can see though the fog of war and position your MG accordingly. I am sure you get what i mean. *enemy at the gates*

After that pull your conscripts back, retreat if you must Order 227. DO NOT LET THEM DIE COMRADE! So after setting up your MG, the second MG is to protect the flank of the First MG. Since our glorious Maxim MG has a limited firing range.

Set up your PM41 Mortar in a position somewhere inbetween MG no.1 & no.2 so that it can be able to hit units while your Maxim's are supressing them.

Ok, once you have done that your AT gun comes handy. It will be able to hold off German Fasict light vehicles and probably the Panzer 4 at most. By now it has been 7 miuntes into this game and we should be able to hold off until around 15 minutes, thats where the Panzer 4's come.

Place it in right where the first MG is pointing at, most likly the enemy will come right though there.

Next my friend, come the T34's.
Going onto Mid-Game
Tier 3 is now up, but since the December update you will not be able to get T34's anymore. You'll have to wait till Tier 4, that again, later.

But it is not completely useless. It has the M5 Halftrack, which is able to re-enforce your MG's and your conscripts while fighting.

Once that happens you should be able to hold of Fasict infantry effectively. Now we are moving to Tanks, where we get out glorious T34 to kill Hitler's Tanks.

Now you need to get 80 fuel points to bulid a T34 and even though it might be little, you'll want this boost. You must have already 4 Command Points and by then, it enables you to call in an airdrop, which you trade 100 Munitions for 50 fuel. Since you didn't upgrade the concripts you'll save all that munitions.

Stalin sent you a present!

Then soon after, you can bulid your T34!

Tanks Galore!
By now you should have your T34.

T34's are good against German light vehicles, e.g Puma's, Sdkfz.222 Scout Cars, Sdfkz.222 Halftracks, Panzer II L & Ostwinds.

You should get

x2 T34/76
x1 BM 13 Kaytusha

I got my T34 by 11 Minutes!!!

Now, you need to repair the tank after battle right? It's ok, all you need is the repair station in which you should get by then. It costs 75 munitions and by then you should have at least 100 munitions since the last airdrop. It repairs faster then engineers and makes your life so much eaiser in tank peservation.

It also makes your engineers more productive, e.g, planting mines, buliding base bulidings.

If you want to be a good player too, allow your other friendly commanders to use it too! Teamwork to victory comrade!

Why get a Katyusha? Because getting it will make you be able to grind Command Points to get KV 2 which is 14 CP and it's difficult to get. Fire your rockets on a OKW base truck, Kill a bunker or a blob on infantry. It's up to you to decide. It can also destroy British enplacements like Bofors and QF 17 Pounders effectively.

You can skip buying a KV8 to get a katyusha. Stalin's Organ

Heavy Tanks
Finally the last part of this guide, where you get the KV 2 and KV 8 tanks. These super tanks really kill. KV2 has a 152mm Howitzer Gun which decimates everything! While KV8 has a ATO-8 flamethrower, which gives you one of the worse ways to die, burning to death.

We will go though about the KV 2 first, then on to the KV 8.

The size of the KV 2 is just lovely!

Now, since you have 2 T34's and a KV 2 let's pound the enemy's base.
Ok, you would want to make sure your KV 2 is always safe. You can only have one of it at a given point of time in any game. So, T34's are cheap? Yes! Use them as cannon fodder.

It should be something like that.

The T34's will always advance first before the KV 2 so it can scout and the KV 2 can then, flank the enemy positions/tanks.

After that, you have reached your goal! Berlin!. The enemy base.
This is what the KV 2 is meant to do.

This is it comrade!

And this is the outcome

The moment you were waiting for!
I hope my guide has made you understand the basis of this doctorine and use it to your advantage. All the best!

Hopefully by next week, I will make a video on using Soviet Industry Tactics on my youtube channel. I will also be adding my KV 8 and final touch ups before this guide is completely finished.

Thanks Comrades! All the best on the front.

If you want to beat Expert CPU, cheese them with tank traps and barbed wire. It's very easy to do.
Bortolo Mar 30, 2016 @ 10:09am 
Against standard cpu?? Really? Do yu try against real players (decent ones)?
At min 15 expect a panther, not a pz4...

@General Disarray

The reason why i didnt use su85 is because the amount of fuel needed is alot, thus delaying the KV2's arrival
General Disarray Mar 18, 2016 @ 2:19am 
No SU-85 tips? You can use them to spot territory if they on attack tanks.

So was George S. Patton, Erwin Rommel, Julis Caesar, Napolean Bonaparte, and Tanaka. What's your point

Zhukov was an evil war criminal
