Strategies and guides[edit | edit source]

Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Venezuela. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

Venezuela starts in a very weak position in 1936, but the advantage that it has compared to its neighbours, is that is fascist and can justify wargoals against the countries that hold the lands of the former gran colombia without any restrictions. Venezuela has a very weak army but it can compensate this via use of paratroopers, which will ease the conquering of the colombian countries. It is highly recommendable to send attaches to the spanish civil war, which will help you develop army doctrines and edition of templates. It is advised to not join any faction before conquering all of Gran Colombia's territories because the other countries will more likely join a faction and more troops will fill the frontlines. Try to befriend the fascist powers of El Salvador, The Dominican Republic and the major fascist countries. If allied with Peru, you can easily take over Brazil.
