Gather around, commanders, I have some crucial information to share with you. Knowing how to use your vehicles can be of key importance to win the battle, even for infantry heavy factions as the Latin Junta. I suspect that most of you already knew this; however, I have gathered some tips to get the most out of your vehicles.
Also you might want to check out the store this weekend for some awesome deals on vehicles! But back to business – how do you use vehicles?
The most common denominator of all vehicles is that they don’t lose attack power as they get damaged, contrary to infantry squads. A vehicle that has only 10% health left, deals as much damage as one with 100%. Focussing fire on one vehicle and destroying it in one round is a very valid strategy to deal with this. Alternately when it concerns your own vehicles, make sure to position your vehicles in such a way that your opponent can’t reach them with enough firepower to destroy them.
A tricky aspect that is unique to vehicles is the critical hit. Most Anti-Armor attacks have a chance of immobilizing their target which stops a vehicle from being able to move for one turn, or a chance to disable a weapon which prevents your units from attacking for one turn. The critical hit chance is noted on the attack, and can either be a Low (10%), Average (20%), or High (40%) chance. Obviously, scoring a critical against your opponents top tier units is like hitting the jackpot.
While vehicles can’t capture points, they are essential for blocking the enemy from capturing points hence preventing them from getting resources and deploying more units. The big vehicles effectively block a lot of movement on and around the capture point, while the small 2x2 vehicles have the same manoeuvrability as infantry and can reach nearly any place on the map with relative ease. Especially early in the game when your opponent hasn’t had the chance to deploy a lot of vehicles, the cheaper small vehicles with Anti-Personnel or Rending damage can be an effective counter to infantry as they tend to have decent defences against infantry.
