Is it just me or is the infantry general over-powered. The fact that helixs come with bunkers for no extra cost. The advanced bunkers are near impossible to take down for GLA players. Attack outposts and assault troop crawlers effectivly have 2 lives, if the vehicle is destroyed the infantry inside survives and they have by far the best vehicle from the tech-tank drop. No other army has this much variety and strengths and I think this should be looked at in the new patch. What do you think?

Use your Jarmen Kell, Maurader Tanks, RPG Dudes, and Quad Cannons against those Helixes, Attack Outposts, and Assault Troop Crawlers. Use anthrax againsta Troop Crawler and Attack Outpost so once it dies, it kills all the infantry. The Infantry Gen is good for rushes, but later in the game the Infantry Gen is rather weak.

It's not overpowered... Just use the Toxin General against it :P But for the other armies, just like Napalm said, use Jarmen and Quads and Toxins, it works... For USA vs Infantry, that makes it alot tougher. Once USA has snipers the Infantry is dead... But as long as USA doesn't has em it's hard to keep em off. Only Firebases seem to work! For using China: Get a frikkin lot of Gattling Cannons and Gattling Tanks, it's both AA and Anti Infantry :D

If you got your side of the map bunkerd up enough and have 5 quads on prep ther's no way those helixes can get though undetected and unscaved :) Stinger pots with stinger missle upgrade will do much damige. Just build a few in your base

pathfinders inside a combat chinook or a humvee work uber aswell against the infantry gen. the problem is that it takes forever to get pathfinders :S

Yea, but if you wanna asure victory just try to rush the inf, most of the time they won't be ready to defend theirselves good enough...
