Strength of character, and inner fortitude, are decisive factors"

During Wehrmacht World War II he attained the rank of Field Marshal ( ) and was held in high esteem by his fellow officers as one of the Wehrmacht's best military minds. Generalfeldmarschall
He was the initiator and one of the planners of the Ardennes Offensive alternative in the invasion of France in 1940. He received acclaim from the Nazi-German leadership for the victorious battles of Perekop Isthmus, Kerch, Sevastopol and Kharkov. He commanded the failed relief effort at Stalingrad and the Cherkassy pocket evacuation. He was dismissed from service by Adolf Hitler in March 1944, due to his frequent clashes with Hitler over military strategy. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

V Weapons | Germany | Manstein AXIS and ALLIES RTS
V Weapons - One of the most powerful special ops in the game. Sends a rocket strike to target location, resulting in massive damage. Smaller area of effect than a carpet, and only half as much damage versus buildings, but has 50% more explosive damage, which has a much better result versus armor. A "Double V" or "Kami-V" will destroy just about everything when used correctly. [ compare all the special op bombs]
The Double Bomb - The most important aspect in online multiplayer is to coordinate the use of the V Weapon with the other "bombs" your allies may (or may not) have. The "double bomb" can have devastating effects on enemy forces when used correctly. When you have acquired enough experience for your V Weapon, let your allies know, and if someone else has one, hold onto yours until you can "double". [ more info]
The Single Bomb - Occasionally there are circumstances where you may need to use a single bomb to defend a base, or to prevent your forces from being " ". Once again, communicated with your allies, ask them if they have anything to counter the threat, and if not, go ahead and single bomb. pinched
If you have the only bomb on your team you have a little more freedom about when and where to use it. However, with freedom comes some responsibilty, so keep an eye on battlefield conditions, and if your allies need it more than you do, help them out.
The Front Lines - Another important aspect of using any bomb type special op, is to use them where you have nearby forces. Not only can you chase down wounded/routed regiments and "finish them off", but you can also use this as an opportunity to "push" (advance) the front lines, as enemy forces will be retreating to heal.
Charging Your Bomb - You also have a responsibilty to your allies to try to "charge" your bomb quickly by gaining as much experience as possible. That may mean you focus a little less on your economy, and a little more on making regiments and getting them into battle. The more troops you have fighting the quicker you will gain exp for your bomb!
Propaganda War | Germany | Manstein AXIS and ALLIES RTS
Propaganda War - Saps enemy units of their will to fight, decreasing morale, defense value, and max speed. Usually best to save it for later in the game, but can be used if you are pushing close to an enemy base, or in emergency situations. Keep in mind the 800 experience cost will set you back quiet awhile on your V-Weapon, if you use it early. Combine with the other special ops of your allies (or your V-Weapon) for maximum effect.
Espionage | Germany | Manstein AXIS and ALLIES RTS
Espionage - Targets an enemy building to reveal the enemy’s current economic status and steal money.. If the enemy target doesn't have $50 you don't get it (so target the eco whores). The 400 EXP is somewhat expensive for the effect of this special op, netting you only $50 and some limited intel on the economy of the target. Probably best to save your EXP for your V-Weapon.
Corp Reorganization AXIS and ALLIES RTS
Corp Reorganization - Everyone has to deploy a new corp hq from time to time. Don't be hasty about placing that second corp (this special op can only be used once per hour). Make sure you have resolved the situation that caused you to lose your first one! You can always ask your allies if the have a safe place, their base defenses may be better than yours.
If there is no safe place wait until there is one! Move your technology buildings in the meantime, as they may be subject to attack following the fall of your corp hq (losing those buildings too will limit the regiments you can produce).
Keep in mind your second Corp HQ will become a "high priority" target for your enemies. If they can destroy your second corp, and your technology buildings, you will be stuck making only light tanks or halftracks (depending on the tents you have left), which really can't compete in the later stages of the game (or any stage of the game for that matter).
