A flak trap is not one Tunguska and one Buk...a flak trap is 4 mech strela's, 2 tunguksa, and 6 inf ingla's.
A Firefly killed Wittman...

It's a 17lbr, not a 76.2mm.

Do not group your radar SAM platforms; they're SEAD bait.

For the love of all that is good in the world, spread those aforementioned platforms out along your line and leave them in the open; they don't need to be in the forest unless danger is close (way too close), so give them a clear view of the whole sky. (Spreading them out also costs you very little time while creating a much more difficult situation for your opponent. As they watch, they'll need to recall exactly where each missile launch came from and how many there were. Messy, confusing, and highly likely their next SEAD run won't work nearly as well as it would if you just left four BUKs in a forest.)

-If one of your anti-air units get destroyed - buy two new.
-Never send your planes to help your teammate if you dont know what awaits them - its very likely that you will loose them.
-Every single forrest and city where noone of your or your teammates troops are in is an enemys stronghold: bring flammertanks/flammerinfantry/buratino/napalmbomber - the marshmallows are already there.
-Whenever you think that you just can rush trough - you cant.

Just wanted to bump this for all those who need to L2P. :mrgreen:

And i'll add another sentence as well;

Make sure your deck is diverse. If you have 3877 tanks but not much else you will lose.

If range is not your friend, smoke the enemy before you attack.

Smoke may be used to create feints.

Napalm is like smoke, but it sticks to kids kills and panics stuff.

If telling units to retreat press G so they will do so in reverse rather than present thier weak armor to the enemy.

SEAD (Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses) does not only consist of HARM (High-speed Anti-Radiation Missile), 5" zunis may also make sweef sweet love to the thin armor of AA systems.

Always have as much reconnaissance as possible; eyes on the enemy command zones, with any battlegroup, over supply lines, staging areas, enemy plane routes.

Do not be afraid to concede ground or even command zones in order to save units or create conditions to kill more enemy units.
