M26 Super Pershing
Panzer V Panther
Panzer VI Tiger
Panzer VII King Tiger
Panzer VIII Maus
Well yah I won't build all of those at once, I don't need Panzer 3's and I won't build an armor base just for them. Usually I just build an airfield, to begin with in 1939 France cannot get its advanced fighters, and they don't get their fighter bombers, thus their air is really weak (even with the adv fighters it's still the weakest vs. other air in the game), their fighters will get eaten alive by the German ones which again if you do go fighters won't leave you enough money to do much of an armor rush. From there stuka's and some ground recon perhaps depending on the situation, French tanks are slow thus not very strong in rushing and then with air dominance I can reach all over the map. Sure you can go AA, but that severely limits your offensive capabilities and eventually the amount of money you'd be spending on AA will limit all your other projects.
As for getting bombers to counter Siegfrieds? You're joking right? France cannot hope to beat Germany in the air long enough to get bombers up, you're much better going light artillery, which for the French is really powerful.
If anything Germany is the best in 39, France is pretty good in that era as well because everyone else is weakened, but Germany is for one the only nation with a full no research for F-FB-B airfield, their infantry are just amazing for that era, they get stugs etc. Sure they don't get Panzer 4's in that era but they are strong regardless.

who voted for the Maus 0.o
people come on the super purshing is good but its not the best. And come on the panzerIII and the stewert almost every tank is better than them. the two best tank are the mause and the fcm and the tiger and king tiger are not bad there awsome same with the pershing and thats my statement
u think italy come on all u half to do is build a army of shermans and there dead price is not everything
ok first of all the mause is good and second you defend with it not attack. The mause is like the japese advanced tank destroyer and rushing is for noods no won wonts to be rushed
I've always hated the Maus. It's without question, the most powerful tank in the game but it's slow, expensive, and takes forever to aim at enemies. It's more vulnerable to fighter bombers than any other tank and it's too much to invest in. I much rather build advanced heavy tanks and use them to rush an enemy than any super heavy. If the advanced heavy tank has 500meter range, then it could out gun super heavy tanks worth the same amount of money. For example, 6 Super Pershings cost the same as 4 Maus's. Those Super Pershings can easily outgun the Maus's because they can position themselves faster and rotate their turret faster. On paper, I'm sure the Maus's outgun them, but the Super Pershing would beat them every time. Man it's been a while since I've used this forum.
The Italian Carro M13 is an excellent raiding tank. It costs $15 and requires no research so you get get a few out really fast. It can outgun other light tanks because of it's thicker armor but it's still very fast. My new favorite "light" tank if you can call it that.
