there are more than 50 different units in the game. different people care for different units because they haev certain kind of tactics that they like to use that those units are best used for. mine personaly is the united state's comanche attack helicopter. if you attack my base it is like stirring up a hornets nest because ill send most of my comanches after your units.
others prefer muscle weapons such as super weapons and tanks. the scud stormn adn the nuke have to the the most powerful weapons int he game, compared to the u.s.'s particle cannon. another strategy i have found is the stick cloaked units behind trees and other strutures. that way the unit is not out and in the open, plus if the enemy has no radar then they will never know it was there.
well thats it for now. thanks for your vote
Losers complain while winners train.
IMHO the particle cannon may not have the blast radius of the nuke or the scud storm but it IS powerful. theres no other superweapon that can wipe out GLA buildings completly in one shot (including the hole). plus its excellent for troop support and base defense.
But my favorite unit is the Pathfinder. bushes that kill...sweet :D but if it has to be one of the selections then its gotta be the Paladin. great looking tank, looks kinda like the challenger II i think, and powerful too.
I didn't make it!
I prefer the dragon tank actually, the flame wall kicks ass, and when u gather aboutn 5 to 10 of em... THEY WILL BURN!!!:cool:
the game have to many vehicles and weapons of good quality, and its depend how you use it and with what you combine the attack... i think one powerfull wepapon ( and i dont see it in the poll :mad: ) is the tomahawk, they has the most great range with the drone, and they do a lot of damage ( of course nothing compared with the chinesse artillery nuke cannon) but tomahawk are cheap and more cool :o ...
But refering to post.. my favorite weapon is paladin 1000% ... i remember a game that i win one time my oponent was USA and he almost blow me in pieces ... the last army that i can build was 18 paladins , 3 humviess with 3 pathfinders and rocket soldiers inside and my comand center generals powers... after the A-10 strike and the b52, i tried a heavy entry in his base with the paladins... the rest of history was 10 veterans paladins and 2 veterans humviess making disaster in his base! of course he spend his generals powers in destry my base and he had his base heavenly defended, the humvies erradicate the rocket soldiers(wow the fall like bugs) and the paladins get down all stationari`s defenses! i never seen before how powerfull can be a group of the same units, in veterans level 3 all... really cool :D
I like the Nuke. I usually build 3 or 4 of them and play against GLA. the combination of Nuke / Artillery will take out a scud storm easy. You can have different scenarios with Black lotus / nuke / Migs etc.
The bets part is when i play coop with my budy against 2 or 3 Hard GLAs and combine attacks with nukes and particle cannons. Fireworks!!!! :D
i find the gatling tanks most useful. when combined with tank hunters they can be very effective. i use gatling tanks more frequently than any other unit.. but since it wasnt an option i chose overlord, i think they are the best mobile unit in the game. A group of 3 Overlords upgraded with nuclear tanks, gattling cannon, bunker (with tank hunters inside), and propaganda tower (with subliminal messaging) is nearly unstoppable.
well i agree with you on the overlords and the gattling tanks. but i still think the comanche is a decent weapon against everything but air units. i usualy combine my comanches with paladins. you can target the overlord with the gattling cannon on top with the comanchies (8-10 comanches will make a burning pile of rubble out of any tank) and then take your paladins and target the overlord with the bunker on top that has the tank hunters in it. the rockets won't be of much use against the paladins because of thier lasers. and for the overlord with the propaganda tower, its as good as dead. then you can head for the base and attack the base with the paladins. while the enemy worries about the paladins you can take your comanches, sneak them in the back and take out the barracks, war factories, and power structures. once that happens, keep reinforcing you units,
I like GLA technicals, fully upgraded and Seargent ? veterancy.
