The Red Army in this scenario actually has something you don't see in 39: an early counterattacking ability. I wish the 39 scenario had a few high powered units like this. Because the second major problem with the 39 scenario is imo the Soviet Union is too weak. (Along with the Western Allies being too strong.)
I don't like the 30% change or the delay in mech at all. Basically the Soviet Union is nearly helpless until late in 1942 now. It really sucks and all because Alvaro wanted to make some crackbrained 1942 Barbarossa possible. This is silly, because if you are going to do the Soviet Union, you had better do it in 41. The 42 Barbarossa is not really feasible even with these changes. All they've done is make life much harder on the 1941 Soviets, as if it wasn't difficult enough already.
What to do? Just pump out infantry corps until the end of the year, 1 per turn. The rest of your production going towards replacements and upgrades. You need grunts. There is really no point in building more mech, you've got plenty of it already and indeed it is of higher experience than you are going to see for a while. I would probably disband the bombers, too, and buy an extra 3 HQs.
If the Germans decide to do Barbarossa they will be very strong in the 1940 scenario, because they can knock out France easy, already have 6 mobile corps to start with, and have a bunch more infantry than in the 39 scenario. They can easily invade early.
Make use of the new terrain. There's a whole brand new river line north of the marshes that can buy you an extra turn.
