the way i did this was i anaylised how the hardcore ai plays and instead like on expert if you have tanks it brings out gunships it usally starts with about 2-4 gunships depending on the maps starting units, but i made sure i had at least 1 transport on the battle field all the time. then i would use riflemen to cap uplinks and push defcon (if possible try and keep them out of the fighting for most of the battle), always push defcon, the ai only nukesw if you have 3 units in nuke range of each other, i used arty to take out the groung units but have a tank close by at the ready, keep at least 1 transport with your arty as gunships launch constant assults on you arty, gunships usally retreat when thir shield is depleated, also try to stick to conquest whenever you can as it is the most easyest game type to win.

hope this helps

I personally found it easiest regardless of faction to start with use the +dmg artillery batallion.
From there I found the assault missions easiest to complete as these simply require you to out survive the AI which can be fairly easily achieved.
The basic strategy I employ is to ensure you enginerrs have their mobility upgrade (capture and upgrade faster). then from the start start with transports and engineers. and take them to uplinks and capture. especially in conquest take the furthest away from your start position that are still closer to you start point. if there are 9 capture the 4 you are closest to and use the transports and engineers as a defensive perimeter. bring in two artilleries and a chopper to scout targets and keep everything at arms length until they exhaust all untis.

Depending on what you are allowed to start with the command vehicle should sometime be ommited from the starting lineup to allow for a quicker initial push to capture uplinks. Also keep in mind what batallion type you are fighting and try to keep one or two slots open to react to any emergency situations (WMD strikes can cause all sorts of problems if you cannot deploy anything to counter a WMD fllowed by a rush).
You will also find in some battles the Ai employs artillery, this is a bit awkward and will usually to either burn some cp to airstrike them down, or get two or 3 chopper units and zerg them altho it will usually end up costing 1 or 2 units so you need to decide if the artillery is causing enough of a problem to warrent it or if edging your own artillery into range would be better.

I tend to dashboard if i screw up rather than take a loss just to speed things along. so far US was completed in 13 turns and Russia in 11 europe i expect to be similar.

Ready for Theater of War

When I did this I was the Europe faction.
First off, NEVER defend anything, ALWAYS ATTACK.
I went to Europe with the flight battalion (mostly helicopters and riflemen) +10 to Riflemen damage, I immediately went straight for Russia, which it at first was going down and away from the capital, but when I lost I didn't immediately quit out because it changed direction towards Russia capital. Id say it got easier after Russia until you get to the American Capital. But if it was Conquest I would drop my riflemen on the Capture points( upgrade needed in barracks, only 100,000) and just keep dropping them everytime I could. They would usually move all their units away from the capture points. So then just let the 5 minutes tick down.

If it was Assault, which you have to kill every unit, I used the Defend my Artillery strategy, but when it becomes DEFCOM you must immediately spread your units or they will drop a nuke on your group (if its 3 or more units) This one was very annoying because the enemy is relentless. Once you reach the capitals you have to first play Conquest, then Assault, then seige. My tactic was the same, When it becomes Seige in Russia, just wait for them to get their reinforcements nuke the point you need to capture (A) and then drop riflemen on it and capture it. After you capture point A you must hold it for 3 minutes. After my riflemen died I just send another group to slow them down, luckily burning down the rest of the 1 minute and a half. It was very close though. When you reach the American Capital (worse than Russia capital I say) Same strategies, except for Seige, This time I took in my Command Vehicle, 4 tanks, 1 transport vehicle, 2 artillery, 2 helicopters. I actually Annihilated the enemy instead of capturing point (A). Funny thing was I failed miserably the first time, then the second time (using the units listed above) I did it in 8 minutes. I finished EUROPE in 15 turns, which was pretty good, and this 15 turns was with losing 1 right in the beginning.

A tip I would love to recommend is use the Overhead map view when playing this game by having your command Vehicle on the field and hitting the Back button. I could see all the enemies, you may need to switch every once and a while, but I felt like it was like any RTS and not TC's ENDWAR RTS.

GL, HAPPY HUNTING, LMK if you have any questions.
