Normal Development

Total Threat Level: 5

Musical Theme Inspiration: The Song of the Volga Boatmen (collected by Mily Balakirev)

Although not officially classified as expansionistic, Stalin grows his nation extremely quickly, and his early militaristic aggression makes him a tremendous threat throughout the game.

If he has access to resources and land, you will find he produces vast waves of military units, especially catapults, and later armor units.

On Earth, his civilization will usually conquer Eurasian rivals very quickly, as his starting position among forests and rivers is very conducive towards building units quickly. On large land masses he is as dangerous as any leader out there.
