-What should I do with those tank brigades? I'm just dispersing them around hoping they'll do something in reserve mode. But each has 6-8 tanks, so it seems just a tremendous waste.
I would put them to good use. According to my nasty war philosophy all my pixel-truppen must earn their weekly vodka or drop dead...
But anyway, I tend to mass the rifle divisions (I want Guards DIVISIONS, that's the top priority), so it's all about free space: is there any room for an extra unit (let's say a tank brigade) at the massed frontline?
If you have let's say in some places a 2-units stacks (instead of the ideal 3-unit), you might want to add a tank brigade. The rifle divisions will do the real job, and if successful, your tank brigade (involved in the attack) will be closer to Guards status
Finally a Soviet player called TDV used the tank brigades - cavalry units combo to literally annihilate enemy units... He succeeded. Not sure it's 100% fair but it's more than possible
