What I think is that you have discovered my new secret Soviet strategy. This is exactly what I plan on doing. Pre war Cavalry spam. You have to wait until after Finland to do this. And you may as well disband most of the rifle corps, too, save whatever is necessary to guard the Crimea and caucus coastlines.
Build these at AT. With 1940 tech and 35% experience, they come in as strength 4 units. And they are dirt cheap. You could literally build dozens of these things up to the end of 1940, at which point you need to switch to upgrades and replacements for the armor on map. By May of 1941 it will all be up to speed, except for perhaps some air units.
But it is untested and I don't know how well it will perform in PBEM. It works like a charm against the AI, but that is no proper test.
I hate giving this away, but there you go. If it ends up being a total flop in PBEM, well, you have been warned.
This makes sense Flav, but why upgrade the prewar tank (and are you also saying mech?) units? They have low exp, and seem better disbanded and rebuilt at 50%?
re: disbanding rifle corp, I guess you have to be careful not to go over 100% manpower as you do this - right? That would be inefficient since one of the basic goals here is to maximize manpower which is a Soviet weak point in this game (kinda silly that the game models it this way when manpower was actually a Soviet strength).
When is winter war script triggered in game?
