For v3, I tended to take armor lists. With v4, my Sov inf may see the table again. ATR's going back to being 3+ save and faster inf movement makes inf much more effective in v4 over v3.

Sov Red Banner Inf, Barbarossa, EW, 1650 pts for 2017

FT
Cmd HQ + 2 ATR.............65

Combat
FT inf 19+ 1 HMG.........305
FT inf 19.......................275

Weapons
6 45mm ATG..............260
4 76mm obr 1927.......95
4 82mm mortar.......... 80

Support, FC
4 45mm ATG..............155
1 KV1-e.......................410

Total 1645

2 Trained art templates
2 Hmg's
2 ATR
40 FT inf
10 45 mm ATG
1 KV1-e Heavy Tank

With the new rules, I think I will go inf for a bit.

I see it a bit weak on the template side if you are going to use it in V4.

Why do you take a single KV-1e?, its uber expensive and will be hard to rent on the battlefield.

At least it's mostly not conscript! The conscript nature of the AutoMotoStrelk lists makes me think thier gun units will be short lived. The 45mm ATG is great gun for EW.

Good thought on the ATRs. Having those integrated in infantry units gives them some interesting offensive options against EW AFVs. Just remember no "no mistaken targets" at under 8" from AFV fire. So get close, but not too close!

I, like SP, am not sold on the KV. Just so few shots it will get in a game, half of which will miss veterans. But it will draw a lot of attention, so if that's your intent for it. Fine I guess. I think I'd rather have a bunch of 45mm armed tanks or BA-6s myself.

The KV is strickly "becasue I can" -:) For once, the sov's get the badest tank in town. For inf support, several matilda is better cost wise than the KV, but I think it will do ok.

For EW, my main doubles list was German Gliders list with its 50pt for each inf stand supported by a pz 1 list stright out of the invasion of the Low Countries. We didnt win tourneys with them, but they are a blast to play and made even vet players sweat a bit. Same with this sov inf list.

single tank unit slow tanks move a min of 12inchs. move + 4in Follow Me. The cmd moves 4in before any dice for the rest of the command.
This give the KV a 12in tactical Move w/ Follow Me, w/ a 16" assault range. Just the thing to take out a gun team or HMG pocket.

Just leave the main gun at home eh?! :) You're just going to go play "whack a mole" with its treads!

I find it interesting that Phil made the "Follow Me" order a motivation test (that a single tank platoon essentially cannot fail), but did not allow for motivation rerolls due to the presence of the Formation Commander.
