Tanks! With a healthy dose of Artillery and ATGMs. Infantry to hold objectives.

Forget air assets. The Ruskies can fill the air with bullets and rockets for just a few points. And by not purchasing air assets, the points are wasted!
On the other hand, the Gepard is always a wise purchase as it can shred their infantry.
Your tanks are expensive but great. Do not put in terrain where you have to make a bog check. No sense in disabling your own tanks like my opponent did last game…
Get as many Pz Grenadiers as possible. You can also get a small unit of Gepard guard troops for addition AAA (can't remember their name).
115 is a lot of points. We usually play with 100. It's like a free Leo 2.
Good luck, you're gonna need it.

The AAA extras are 'fliegerfausts'

Honestly, Shilkas are never wasted… they are dual purpose – Gaskins and Gophers may be wasted, but Shilkas are an absolute staple.

That being said, I'd bring a lot of Leopard 1s and Panzergrenadiers with Milans… Maybe one unit of Leopard 2s at that level to act as a Fire Brigade – you're going to want to keep all of your tanks moving.

I've used Shilkas on light vehicles,if the dice are with you,they can take care of any IFVs or APCs.
