When I look at the attack and defense values of a Russian army compared to a Russian Shock army they are the same except the Shock army has one more action point. The Shock army costs 250 production points which is more then double the cost of an army.

My question then is, why build Shock armies?

Shock Armies demoralise at 20% per attack, Armies 10% - that can make a big difference.

De-moralization is a big difference.

In addition Shock Armies upgrade with Infantry Weapons much faster. A level 3 Army attributes (Attack/Def Soft/Hard - 8/6, 7/5) are for the most part equivalent to a level 2 Shock (8/6, 7/4). The exception is hard defense where the Army lv2 is 4 lv3 5 and the Shock lv 2 is 4. The tank defense numbers are better for the shock (lv2 vs lv2) tho.

Obviously this makes the Shock superior from '41 - '43.

At level 3 is where the corp actually have some attack value past de-entrench.
