First, thanks for all the tips & the greetings!
I finally could get around to playing. Luckily, a third AI at war with both me and Emperor Purple popped up, and this opened new possibilities. But they're so far away... So here's the quiet situation in the east:
Yeah you got to take on that other AI first, this purple one is a tough nut to crack for the moment. Terrain is difficult (hills forests and rivers = trouble) and he outnumbers you. I do notice a weak spot in his line though. To the upper left of that lone amoured car in the forest, you can just see the sea there, break through there and you'll have cut off the line of supply to the rest of his forces in the wooded area. Notice how the majority of his forces are near your besieged town? That's because his capitol is somewhere there too although it's still shrouded.
The moment that purple AI declares war on you (DOW) it will probably attack your city there where your MG unit is 365 points. Be sure to not overstack that hex with more than 100 points (that's 100 soldiers, each counts as 1, same with MG's and Mortars they count as 1 too, AT guns count as 5 and tanks as 10). Use MG's and AT guns, like 20 MG's and 5-10 AT's and the rest Inf. MG's and AT's are very very efficient when it comes to defending.
When and if that AI DOW's you he will most likely swing around your 316 MG unit to the hex with open ground.... that's your killing field, have some tanks and arty ready and blast away. Have HQ ready to get them some HQ bonus.
