I would very happy if experienced soviet players answer some of questions

Is HQ buildup is a offensive in Nature or is it both offensive and defensive in Nature.For Soviets.
Does Soviets should/Must use HQBup regularly.

To boost the defenses in 1941 July-November period.
Or Rather it is a must in 1941 Blizzard offensive.
What about 1942 defense.
Is it wise to accumulate AP for offensive use or use defensively.will it provide big benefits on defense in critical sectors.

And finally what is the trade of between Unit creation and HQ buildup .It should be balanced between two or Soviets should try to survive without HQ Buildup and focus on unit creation.

I find in 1941 that I never have enough AP to do an HQBU. You are always using your AP to preserve integrity of combat formations, move depleted units to rear area formations for refit, build new air regiments, build fortified zones, replace incompetent generals, and the like. You might think about one HQBU in the winter for your shock armies. In 1942, your AP will go to create corps units. I think maybe you start using HQBU more intensively in 1943, though I haven't gotten there in a game against a live opponent yet.

I have only used HQBUs in offensives. After all, the biggest boost of a HQBU is the MPs you get.

With the soviets I never used them in 1941 or 1942. I see no point at all. There are more pressing things to spend APs and it wouldnt make much difference to make a HQBU with your cavalry corps. When, in 1943, you start going away from your rails, it has a point.
