Logical focuses for war are your weak southern neighbors; especially one mainland state Ecuador(South Colombia) and Peru. Venezuela is the next target later on, as they are simply East Colombia and must be reincorporated. Another set of possible targets that have little unlocked slots but major aluminum resources are the Guyanas, from west to east [[colony|colonies]] of {{flag|United Kingdom}} (British Guyana), {{flag|Netherlands}} (Suriname) and {{flag|France}} (French Guiana). While they are fighting with the Axis in Europe and Africa, their colonies are sparsely occupied by minor troops and can be easily taken with [[Naval Invasion]]s, just as Jamaica, Trinidad and Belize (British Mexico). Your northwestern neighbor Panama is split into two parts with the US occupied but very important Panama Canal in between, a good strategy for the longer term. Because of this barrier, you need Naval Invasions for the northern part of Panama. There are only three US divisions stationed at the crucial Panama Canal, but they are extremely strong in Attack ([[Land units#Combat|Soft]] and [[Land units#Combat|Hard]]) and Defense and trying to conquer the Canal brings you into war with the far superior United States. To get to conquer the Panama Canal you also need a lot of naval and air superiority.

Because of the terrain (mountainous) and weather (jungle, hot, storm), the attrition is very high and armor (tanks) is not very effective. Better to focus on a lot of Infantry, armed with Artillery, to succeed in the Andes and surrounding jungles. Air superiority is not a major problem; your neighbours have small Airforces. After you turned Fascist (or Communist), the access for your Navy through the Panama Canal is blocked, but you can build a Naval Base at the Pacific coast in Cundinamarca (or western La Libertad) to maintain access to both sea regions.
