Oberkommando Versus USF 1v1

Long time lurker, first time poster with a question about fighting the USF as OKW.

To give an indication of skill level I'm usually ranked around Level 7 or 8 with UKF, SOV, OST and USF 1v1, so not amazing but not beyond terrible either. Before the 21st June patch I didn't play OKW automatch because I didn't find massed Volks fun to play and they struggled doing anything else.

Since the patch I've been playing OKW a lot trying to get it up with the rest of the factions but I keep running into a wall. Against UKF and SOV I can usually hold midgame with T2, MG34s and good use of cover long enough for me to get to late game armour and push back. Against USF however I struggle immensely. I do okay at the start by beating riflemen with superior positioning but mid-game I rapidly end up forced onto the defensive and losing the resource war, something OKW can't really afford to do given the price of their armour. I'm doing something wrong but I'm not sure what.

So my question is this: what approach in terms of commander, build and tactics do you take against the USF as OKW?

The Stuart I can usually deal with, the mortar usually poses much more of problem by shutting down machine guns and bleeding my manpower which means I can't stop them from blobbing. Their infantry superiority means I usually can't flank and kill it effectively.

Rushing him with 2x sturms and a kubel and gaining an early game fuel advantage should help you getting a luchs out and forcing him to react.

If facing 2x packs then you definitely need to build a walking stuka.
