humvee's filled with rangers armed with flashbangs or filled with pathfinders. pathfinders are crucial if you want to beat the infantry general. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT USE COMANCHEES! they fall out of the skies like flies... armed to the teeth, armored with plastic...:)

Well if you must use air units, then i suggest you use king Raptors. Scelect every raptor under a hotkey and set them on guard in your base, ready for attack.

Then when 3 or more troop crawlers come in rush in with the raptors all together distroy the crawlers, this will take the troopers a few seconds to recover. They will be helpless to snipers once in the open.

I don't know if stealth fighters will work on these guys, with the tunnel bombardment, JP?

As a last resort you could use hummers with rocket infantery, but you'd better get them in and out quick before they get killed.

It's all about micromanagemend, if you got that under controll then you can win!

ok, i'll keep that in mind thx but another thing. What should i do if i want to attack the infantry gen. and he has a lot of assault troop crawlers in his base? i mean, if i gone in there with my airplanes he'll shoot every one of them down. should i use huvees with pathfinders and missile defenders?

Flash bangs work well, Toxic tanks, Flame thrower tanks , Or gatling tanks... Also NUKE shells are cool..

well, only thing that will work then is tommahawks and lots of pathfinders, o and make sure to bring the ocasional avenger for a higher fireing rate. and yes, try and use you airforce in the best possible way you can, with precision bombing. just build an airforce with about 12 king raptors and about 8-10 aurora's. fully upgrade them and be sure to use bombardment or hold the line (bombardment is prolly better) and let the king raptors attack the troopcrawlers, 1 king raptor should be enough to take out one crawler. next let your aurora's destroy the power supplies and/or the warfactories/barracks. then whipe out the main defenses with your humvee's and missile defenders since the power should be offline (be sure to target the gat cannons) let your stealthbombers with bunkerbusters take care of the bunkers (2 per bunker should be enough to kill all the men inside the bunker), then send in a few squads of pathfinders with humvee support past their former defenses and start to flood their base, be sure to bring Burton, he's vital in situations like this. not just for blowing up buildings but more because he can take out about 5 minigunners in less than 5 seconds. if you're lucky, they won't use helix's, if they do, be sure to send your avengers/humvee's to the front to take care of them. by now most defenses and minigunners should be gone and your airforce should be ready for a second strike. now just send in everything u got, including generals powers. destroy anything of any strategic value and sweep the base clean of those damn minigunners with your pathfinders. by now most of his army and base is screwed, and he'll prolly surrender... or u'll have to play a terrible game of hide and seek:p @ Chevalrich, no, the stealth bomber doesn't wreck the troop crawler in one attack. and if it does (it does when it's promoted) the infantry inside just fly around but don't die:uhm:

ok, that aurora bombing sounds very helpful...odd that i didn't realize that by myself either way..i used 6 humvess filled each with 2 pathfinders and 3 missile defenders and the infantry gen. got so owned. His Troop crawlers were destroyed every one of them...not to mention the minigunners. But'll mix these tactics with your and i'm sure that it will solve the problem. One thing that i completely forgot was that the choosen strategy is very important..i always used to play with the hold the line strategy, but i'll try this one out now. Another thing..if you apply bombardment strategy and use a king raptor on a gattling tank or quad cannon..will it you destroy it??

A King Raptor usually distroys a quad cannon or gatling tank even without bombard strategy if you ask me :)

what? no, not promoted ....i've tried that myself without success. A not promoted do not destroy a quad cannon.. I can guarantee that to you..It does damage it to minimal health but it does not destroy it.
