What Units do you consider essential when playing UK?

What Units do you consider essential when playing the UK?

So what units seem to creep into all your British armies? They do not have to be your favorites, they might just have a cool paint job or be a well done sculpt. List any number of units and I will compile a list with rankings in this post periodically. In the end I hope to determine what the most played units are.

We will examine all the Major nations.

M3 Stuart. this one has been in every battle my friends and i have fought. who can resist all guns blazing and 5 speed?

Firefly. even if you lose, you'll look good doing it. a very classy tank.

I hate the M3 Stuart, precisely for your reasons above: I had a friend who always wanted to be the UK and always brought Stuarts. They're such a pain to fight! :maw:

The M3 Stuart is probably the most points-efficient unit in the game.

I have to agree with that.

6 in a 100 point game are a pain, but not unbeatable Germany with Pz IIIs usually wins because of better guns. But the Stuart is better overall as it has better AI values.
