As Austria what do you do to survive? Your armies are too weak, you have too less units, the Russians and Serbs are stronger, do you retreat or attack or counter-attack or just keep quiet?

Finish up the Serbs as quickly as possible while delaying the advance of Russia.
Germany may protect the western part of Austria.

Serbs are quite tough, i once got Belgrade in a game vs Computer but in my 2 MPs so far, have never got it and lost a lot of MPP for trying.
Also, Krakow, Prezmysl, Lemberg and the Oil Fields are all close to the border, only 2 are forts, the other 2 are very vulnerable.

You can get Belgrade in the first turn 80% of the time if you do it properly.
Krakow shoud be guarded by the Germans the other targets will get lost, but it will
take russia some time and casualties.
The Austrians entrech in the mountains where Russia has low supply.
Once the front in the west is stuck Germany will attack Russia in the east and throw them out of Austria.

Works at least in my games ;-)

First move the HQ so you can connect HQ supply to all units.
Then move the units one step after one so you will see the units behind Belgrad.
Now start attacking Belgrad with the weakest units to de-entrech the defender.
Using all 4 units works 80% to destroy the unit in Belgrad.

I can attest that holding Cracow with a KuK cavalry unit and not moving a German Corps in there quickly isn't the best way to do things when facing Fafnir's Russian steamroller.

I lost Krakow held by a lone cavalry and lost units trying to hold those blasted oil fields. I will try to retreat henceforth.

But doesn't loss of NM hurt the Austrians?

Yes, it hurts Austria losing Galicia, but it hurts even worse losing half your army defending that indefensible real estate at the beginning of the fandango with The Bear.
