The anti-German coalition at the start of the war consisted of France, Poland and the United Kingdom, soon to be joined by the British dominions. After 1941, the leaders of the United States, the British Commonwealth, and the Soviet Union known as the "Big Three", held leadership of the allied powers.
Notable Member CountriesEdit
- United States: The U.S. military has units for every purpose on the battlefield. They have an average array of both advanced and light units with a massive productivity rate enabling them to produce high amounts of units on the battlefield quickly, so strength in numbers is preferable. However, thanks to major advancements late in the war the U.S. is right behind Germany in terms of technology allowing for a similar strategy, because the US advanced units are still fairly cheap and easy to produce they can be used en masse as spearheads for large assaults for offensives. The U.S. also has the most mobile armored force in game due to their artillery being mobile, quick mobile AA packing a powerful punch and tanks that are fast and also has firepower that has equal terms to the Germans.
- Soviet Union: Russia fields powerful units that pack a punch as well as the strongest artillery. The Soviets have the best infantry in game, the advanced Gvardiya, trained at an incredible speed and very low costs. Tanks are researched early at a high price, but the tanks themselves are cheap, being used to constantly harass the enemy to prevent damage to the backlines. The U.S.S.R. also have the most varied artillery force in the game. The artillery is already researched and ready to be fielded. With the Katyusha, the infamous Stalin Organ, confusion is spread on a wide scale with maximum ranges far behind enemy front lines. The Soviet Air Force is also quite effective against ground targets, although it needs protection against enemy planes. Russia's AA only works well when spread in massive numbers with a mix of AA guns and fighters.
- United Kingdom: The UK has the best overall air force in game. Powerful Spitfire class planes can shoot down most planes with ease, Hurricanes and Typhoons are the best tank killers in the game and the Lancaster bomber has equal firepower as that of the B-17G heavy bomber. Paratroopers do not need research to be fielded and they have an advanced artillery force but with the 2nd lowest useful tank force (just above Italy).
- Free France: The French rely on superior defense in order to win. Their Maginot bunker is capable of putting a stop of an armored and infantry assault in seconds while their fortified position can take on aircraft daring enough to pass through their airspace. They also have an "elite" moniker infantry, the Legionnaires to come out of their barracks. French tanks are useful at the beginning of game and their super heavy tanks is powerful on end game. The French are therefore the most effective way to counter a rush by Italy or by the USA.
