So, after having played nothing but Allies for... ever. I had considered getting the SSU, just for a big change of pace. This was one of a few variants of lists I was going to put together, but funding just isn't there. I figured I might as well post it for posterity, though, in case I do ever have the means.

The idea here is just to overwhelm the enemy with stuff, while giving yourself a toolbox. It has the Yakstar - or Yakov, a Badass Commissar, and two Grizzled Fakyeli squads. This is a ruinous deathstar unit that really will take a beating and, provided it gets within range, will do some hefty damage to just about anything and everything (except aircraft).

It also has the Nikolai, Commissar, and Sniper combo that uses Unleash Hell in mean and unpleasant ways. You give them Unleash Hell in the Command Phase and Nikolai allows the two Snipers to make a Sustained Attack on Blanks, then you have a Badass Commissar to help compensate for the Suppression, if Nik doesn't shake it all off. Thus, you can make another attack in the Unit Phase. Gross. Plus, Rat Fights in case they need to re-position. Plus, being a Hero, you can give him Orders anywhere.

The Red Thunder and Red Command are just staples. They give the list a bit of anti-tank heft and they are more than capable of putting down Soldier units. Rat Fights for maximum mobility. The Nina is there to fend off Air Drop Fireballs and to crush enemy heavies elsewhere. Nikolai can jump in, if you don't feel the Unleash Hell combo is worthwhile (or you want to use your Commissar to combine the Thunders).

The Natasha is just a nasty beast. Auto-suppressing 24" guns with All-in-One. Nik can jump in this, too, depending on your need. Both Walkers would most likely need to be mingled with the Soldier units for maximum mutual support.

The Red Fury are your anti-air for long-range Suppression dealers. At 4/1 a pop, they aren't instant death to aircraft, but two with solid Sustained attacks (or double taps) can do some hurt. They sit in the backfield, hiding in Hard Cover. Not that it will stop Sniper rounds, but c'est la vie.

Anyhow, that is the list. Maybe, just maybe, I can borrow my friend's SSU and give it a roll someday.
