The unique thing about this unit is its ability to heal infantry and provide AOE damage to the enemies. You can trap down the enemies using the infantry section before using the Mortar team.

The Platoon Command Post unit is all about bringing chaos to the enemies. You can demolish their tanks, infantry, and resource by using the different units in this group.

If you remove infantry and vehicles from the enemies, their mobility is close to zero. They will not advance, giving you the time to set up strong forces before unleashing aggressive strategy.

You need to tow heavy weapons and provide them to your infantry. This is done using the Trucks available in this unit. All these units ensure you get the upper hand during the war.

This unit cuts off the supply line of enemies and stops them in their tracks. Their mobility is completely shattered, and enemies are forced to take a defensive stance.

You can bring your aggressive units and attack the enemies while making sneaky plays. Stopping enemy aggression means taking their comfort away from them and putting them on the back foot.
