This is a completely new deck that I have not yet played with. I got all my favourite tank units but at much worse veterancy and in return I get better infantry, better helicopters and slightly improved air defense.
The general ideas is that LSTR, Formoza and the Polish Berets give me superiority in forests/flanking engagements while the Wachtregiment with their submachine guns and 15 HP should be extremely powerful in city fighting. I do however feel that the infantry tab is overly biased towards expensive units and would also like to get some proper artillery into the deck. Infantry in a helicopter gunship is also lacking.
I have played a lot with general EB deck so here my 2 cents:
LOG: I don't think you need a second truck; keep 30 pts one and get a FOB especially if you are looking for some arty.
INF: Niebirskie is not cost effective, there are very few 15 men squads who can be called cost effective so I'd drop them. Wachtregiment may be fine in a moto decks but in a general deck its AT weapon is just too weak to be able to deal with enemy armor;
I'd pick: Konkurs-M/Vydra II or Mi-17, MotSchutzen 90s/ BMP-2, MotSchutzen 90s/MT-LB, LStR / SPW-80 and last card can be:
MotSchutzen in BMP-1 SP-1
Granatomers (excellent fire support infantry) /Vydra II
Motostrelci/ BVP-2 vz.86 for the IFV if you like to support your tanks with it.
SUP: if you look for long range accurate howitzers for counter arty than Ondava should do the trick as it's one of the best in game howitzers. If you're after rocket arty use MFRW RM-70. It's 7HE, good ammo storage and can also smoke.
I'd stay with TOR ( a versatile system) instead of Tunguska and with Sopel in Strop 2's place. This last one is good and fast but you have LStR in wheels for fast openings. OSA-AKM is a fast versatile AA and many players use it as the backbone of their ADN as it can be pushed relatively fast near the frontline.
TNK: Dyna doesn't work outside armored deck at best veterancy because of accuracy.
T-72M1M could be used as a deterrent but accuracy is still bad
Usually the like of tanks for Moderna, Twardy, Wilk II, Wilk I and Merida I know, you seem to feel the lack of GLATGMs but this can be covered by Konkurs-M, Konkurs-M IFV and PRAM-S Konkurs-M; plenty of rockets I think, even if you decide eventually not to pick Motostrelci
REC: Pruzkumnci in truck -> 25 pts! It's a must have and it is an unit easily spreadable across the map. I like to have Specialny and Formoza together. Both come in ground transports as I feel the choppers they have as options don't add much to the deck. I like Formoza in SPW-40 which is a recon vehicle which I use it for passive spotting after unloading. Actually I think you can get Specialny in Mi-17 as that is a good chopper. Salamandra is okaish but kind of costly so for small pts game look at AHs Mi-3.
VEH: PRAM-S is a nice tool to support armor as it can hit directly infantry with its 120 mm weapon and have Konkurs-M. Cheap and versatile fire support but keep it protected at range. ZSU-57-2, SPW-152E, ASU-85 could be good spammable low cost FSV. I don't like ASU-85 but I've seen it recommended by many so maybe they know something. See what works for you.
HELO: DHS M24P is probably your best helo but use it with caution, I am picking it as a flank guard and a sweeper but most of the time I pick W-3W Sokol for this role and also as an escort for my opening. Mi-35 and Mi-24P are the next choices.
AIR: Plenty of options...I see you like Su-25 but there are other options you could look at
You have interesting SEAD options. Polish SU-22 one have ripple fire capability and is a better killer of AA RAD platforms while German one have also AA missiles and I use it sometimes to pick helos which venture too far and escaped of my AA net. Usually I take the Polish one in big games and DDR one in small games.
For ASF you have to pick between East German one which many say is the meta, it's a good dogfighter also or Polish one which have longer range missiles but you have to have it aiming at the target during the flight of missiles. I prefer the former to pick enemy bombers; I usually take two ASFs if I don't have much AA so I pick between Lazur (excellent dogfighter which can mop up behind you main ASFs , pick helos or could be sent in front as a bait) or Czechoslovak MIG-23s at maximum veterancy.
As bombers, I usually pick between Czechoslovak MIG-29 with napalm bombs or East German MIG-25 with iron bombs. It's a matter of preference in the end. For low points games Su-7BM could be an option as bomber ; L-39 ZA also could be useful for low points game as can pick infantry with bombs or helos with AA missiles; MIG-21M could be useful in openings with napalm bombs to temporarily block roads and have great speed which may give it a chance of survival; MIG-21ML is a cheap multirole which can take soft targets with rockets or helos/bombers with missiles.
I hope it helps and I am looking forward to play again!
