INFANTRY: Infantry of WW2 

A&A Infantry
Infantry can play a key role to your early game success in Axis and Allies online play. Vital in many ways, such as to capture and hold cities early, preventing your enemies from "Eco Whoring", gaining experience for your special ops, as well as defending your own base, or outright defeating your enemies. To be victorious you must learn the stats, matchups, builds, and more.

INFANTRY: Japanese Mortars or Heavy Airborne? 
Japanese Mortars or Heavy Airborne?
Japan has many options when it comes to Infantry, and good upgrades as well, such as Special Forces, Improved Mortars, Foraging, Plentiful Ammunition, and more.. While Commandos certainly have their place in the game, many experienced players can't seem to agree on which in better, Japanese Mortar Infantry or Heavy Airborne. So we thought we would take a moment to profile these two commonly seen regiments, and maybe you can decide for yourself..
First, let's take a look at the regimental level, with the most obvious differences being that the Mortar Infantry regiment has [2] Mortar Infantry Units and [1] MG Unit, while the Heavy Airborne regiment has exactly the opposite. The Mortar Infantry regiment costs a little less at $65, and of course these these two regiments are deployed from different HQ's. There are differences between airborne and infantry units as well, but we will cover those in a moment.

Mortar Infantry Regiment $65


Japan has the strongest Mortar Infantry Units in the game, offering the best blast damage [+35] and morale loss effect [1.00], which makes both the Mortar Infantry and Heavy Airborne regiments quite popular.


Heavy Airborne Regiment $75


Japan enjoys the benefit of being the only country capable of earning +$30 from all their HQ's (after military surplus upgrade), so their economy isn't harmed by deploying Airborne HQ's as it would be with other countries. Japan is also the only country that can purchase the Heavy Airborne regiment for $75, all others cost $100 (ground deployed version)

zling wrote: First of all, as the article says, this is a question mainly for Japan. other countries will be better off with different units, well Germany, especially with Kesselring can also put both mortars and heavy airbornes to pretty good use.
Imho the question boils down to the following: are you facing enemy infantry(SAS, Snipers, Commandos, etc) or early mechs. if facing infantry than the additional mortar troop per regiment is more valuable than the overall increased strength per soldier of the heavy airbornes. however when facing mechs the heavy airbornes shine, being the strongest infantry/airborne regiment available, and that the mortar itself doesn't do that much damage against mechs, as opposed to other infantries.

another thing to note is that mortars are a lot easier to spam, being produced from a 5 unit tent(infantry) as opposed to a 3 unit tent(airborne), so in any type of fast build mortars are superior.

INFANTRY: MG42 - Maschinengewehr 42 
MG-42 (Maschinengewehr 42)

MG-42 (Maschinengewehr 42) - The MG42 (shortened from German: Maschinengewehr 42, or "Machine Rifle 42") was a machine gun that was developed for and entered service with Nazi Germany in 1942, during World War II. The 7.92 mm rifle caliber weapon was developed from, and was intended to supplant the MG34 machine gun, though both would continue to be used and manufactured until the end of that war.

Hitler's Germany entered the World War 2 with the MG-34 as a major multipurpose machine gun, but it soon was discovered that MG-34 was less than suitable for high volume wartime production, being too time and resource consuming in manufacture and also somewhat sensitive to fouling and mud. The search for newer, better universal machine gun began in 1939, and in 1942 the final design, developed by the German company Metall und Lackierwarenfabrik Johannes Grossfuss AG, was adopted as a MG-42.

INFANTRY: The Browning M1919 
Browning M1919

The Browning M1919 was a .30 caliber light machine gun family widely used during the 20th century. It was used as a light infantry, coaxial, mounted, aircraft, and anti-aircraft machine gun by the U.S. and many other countries, especially during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Although it began to be superseded by newer designs in the later half of the century (such as by the M60 machine gun), it remained in use in many NATO countries and elsewhere for much longer.

The M-1919 evolved from the Browning model M-1917 water-cooled machine gun. The M-1919 series .30 cal. machine gun was replaced by the M-60 7.62mm machine gun in the mid-1950s, but continued to be used into the Vietnam War. M-1919A4 was used as both a company level flexible light machine gun on the M-2 tripod mount and as a fixed machine gun on armored vehicles. The M-1919A4 had a heavier barrel with a ventilated barrel jacket, but developed a slower rate of fire (400-550 cpm) than the water-cooled gun. The M-1919 series fired the Army's standard .30-06 round in fabric or metal link belts.
