Over at Dust War, Iron Joe Galka has posted an overview of the SSU, in which he compares the Red Machine to the other factions to see how they stack up. Topics covered include special weapons, vehicles, infantry and heroes.
Out of the three, I prefer the SSU’s mechanic to the Allied or Axis one. SSU infantry is extremely specialized as well — The Red Thunder Antitank squad isn’t going to do well against infantry for the most part and conversely the Ohotniki is not the squad you want going up against enemy armor. But when you maneuver your opponent into making the moves you want him to, the specialization pays off.
Head over and have a read, especially if you play SSU. Do you agree with the points that Joe makes? Is Winter Child really a “gimmick choice?” Start a discussion!
