Thank you for responding. You make a good point about the strategy and tips forum possibly being a better venue for the question. I thought of that thread about hammer overflow, and looked at it before posting my question, however there is no information in there about the Kremlin. I'll test production-rushing in my game since now it's effectively a won game anyway; then if I still have questions I can post again, maybe in Strategy and Tips. Of course if anyone has answers to my questions above about the Kremlin, please feel free to post.
