You know how we always ask which army is best. Well I was going through the Flames of War site last night and saw this same question. It went back and forth until a Player "TEMPLAR" put it into mathmatical terms. He broke down the odds on hits, prices on supports etc. Here is his best list. It does not take in generalship!!!!
1. US Infantry Company
2. Hungarian Infantry Company
3. Irish First British Army Infantry Company
4. German Motorized Panzergrenadiers
5. Romanian Infantry Company
6. Italian Alpini Company
7. Russian Strelkovy Battalion
8. US Armored Infantry Company
9. US Armored Recon
10. British First Army Infantry Company
11. Australian Divisional Cavalry Company
12. German Grenadier Company
13. Guards Strelkovy Battalion
14. South African Infantry Company
15. British Guards Infantry Company
16. Canadian Infantry Company
17. German Armored Panzergrenadiers
18. US Nisei Infantry Company
19. New Zealand Infantry Company
20. German Motorized Recon Company

As you can see, he broke down infantry companies. It points out some things I agree with. First, US are a good buy, 3 of the top 10 are US. Second, Germans are in the lower 10 for the most part,to expensive. Third conscript really hurts the russian player. You will notice several lists you have never seen before. They are on the web site.
I thought it was fun just to see from a stats point of view what came out the best.
Hey, Sean C., look where he put motorized recon!! See it doesn't take into account brillant generalship!! Terry

I must admit that german recon is hard to play, but US infantry and Hungarians are the easiest to defeat. I have 3 years experience at this game now and have played or played against most of these forces.

In the top I would place:
Soviet Strelkovy
Italian Alpini or Italian Bersaglieri
US Armoured Infantry
German Grenadier
Fallschirmjager
US Tank

In the middle I would place
German motorized Panzergrenadier
Finland
German Armoured Panzergrenadier
Romanian Infantry
German Motorized recon company
US Paratroop
German Tank
Soviet Tank
British Tank

In last I would place:
US Infantry
Hungarian Infantry
British recon
US Recon
British first army infantry

I don’t have enough experience with these companies to make any determination
German Pioneers – probably middle of the road
Irish infantry – might be good, possibly overpowered?
Australian Cav - ?
Guards Strelkovy – probably pretty good
South African – probably suck
British Guards
Canadian
US Nisei – What is this?
New Zealand – might be overpowered?

Well, you've played the old Hungarians (Conscript, trained , vet)
The new list is quite a bit better. (IMHO) The old list was basically sucky Luftwaffe field Kompanie.

Not sure why Romanians rank so high. Having Reluctant platoons really sucks. Not knowing which ones are Reluctant until the game starts sucks even more. People look at all the platoons as marvel at them. Just pin them. They'll never unpin (Even Confident Cavalry Very Happy )

I would actually place Soviets up near the top. If you have decent armour, who cares if you're hit. And if your infantry gets hit, you still get a 3+ save.
(Hide your ATRs in the infantry platoon)

Shermans (IMO) are probably the most underrated tanks. (No more Ronson)

And Sean, you shouldn't be able to win with AufKlarung. Remember that.
