Ready to discuss offensive approach both on strategic and tactical level?

Start preparing force allocation in the war theater. Using balanced mix of frontline units (infantry, mechanized and armor) and sufficient number of support formations (Artillery, Air Defense and Logistics)

Then on operation level could use “shock” formations for quick penetrations. Typical one would include mix and Armor and Mechanized unit for recon and spearhead assaults. This would be accompanied by second line of self-propelled artillery batteries.  When on offensive you would need mobile support formation to keep up with the advance. Mobile Air Defense is also necessity for most major engagements.  CAS used extensively when available. Watch out, suppress or avoid enemy SAMs when using air assets.

What would be you tactics and force composition when you want to achieve quick breakthrough?

Would you share your preferred equipment for the mission?
