Effective use of assault grens for a T2 rush

Hello fellow commanders. So I've been trying out the T2 rush playstyle/build, and since this strat is so heavy on assault grens, I was looking for ways to exploit my monstrous early game power. As of current I send one assault gren with an MG-42 and they try to attack where I know my enemy is in force, while the other 2 and the pios are capping/attacking other parts of the map. So far it has been working fine, but I don't have too many games with this style under my belt and I could just be getting lucky.

So I'm curious should I not be splitting up my forces like this, and keep my troops closer together/more directly supporting each other like traditional wher should? Or am I supposed to spread out and abuse the superiority of my individual units?

Furthermore if I force a unit to make a soft retreat should I pursue to force a full retreat/mp bleed, or just go back and cap?

I can't really make assault grens work. I just feel they eat wa too much lead until they can close the distance. Even when I can make a squad retreat, I do have to retreat shortly after. And in the late game they kinda suck.

For me, they work well when they're close to the MG, because they can destroy flanking enemies.

I am also torn on whether I should get 2 or 3 squads.

put 2 ass grens in a 251.
send them into enemy and unload
reinforce and heal them in the 251

could work

I wouldn't go T2 with Assault Grenadiers, unless you're using Strategic Reserves as commander.

Pairing up your units in the early game is a very good way to play.

If your mg and Assgrens go to the middle of the map though they risk running into the entire enemy army.

Many games will begin in earnest with the first 2 assgrens and mg converging to make an aggressive play.

I would try to time the use of your sprint such that soft retreats are not viable options. Sprinting into a unit that is suppressed at max range by an mg or from around corner is a great way to maximize value
