Cybran Tech 1 Engineer

Cybran Tech 1 Engineer The basic Engineer is invaluable for early expansion, for reclaiming map features, and for setting up preliminary defenses / radar towers. If you find you just have too many guys, send some to the front lines to make another factory.

Mole – Land Scout

Mole – Land ScoutThe Cybran land scout is essentially a mobile radar facility. There’s no danger in sending one or two out with your assault force, as it cloaks, and by the same token you can put them fairly close to the enemy base without anyone noticing. Especially on small land maps, they’re invaluable.

Hunter – Light Assault Bot

Hunter – Light Assault BotThe Hunter assault bot is good for controlling the map early on: it’s accurate, fast, and cheap enough to be used in hunting packs. It folds against any sort of static defenses and it’s dangerous to put them in formation because they’ll die to mobile artillery, but don’t discount them. Plus they can fire from T1 air transports, making your harassment even easier.

Mantis – Heavy Assault Bot

Mantis – Heavy Assault BotThe Mantis does very well against any sort of T1 attack – its greater maneuverability helps it dodge attacks, while its repair function allows it to support your engineers by providing more than just warm bodies, or even repair each other. It’s more expensive than the other factions’ tanks, but also more versatile, and a key component of your arsenal once the opponent starts building forces that can take out your Hunters.

Medusa – Mobile Light Artillery

Medusa – Mobile Light ArtilleryThe Medusa light artillery is much more specialized than the other factions’ artillery units. Its stun shot just makes it more likely for the rest of the guns to hit it, but the Cybran unit with the most trouble hitting units is the Medusa itself, so its only purpose is to stun defenses briefly while your Mantises swarm by them.

Sky Slammer – Mobile Anti-Air Gun

Sky Slammer – Mobile Anti-Air GunUnlike the other T1 mobile anti-air units, the Sky Slammer’s missiles are weak but track well enough to kill slow air units like T1 bombers. Plus, once those forces are disposed of, press the Air/Land toggle to convert them into an extremely weak but not defenseless ground attacker. It doesn’t have the range advantage Total Annihilation players know and love, but it’s still worth building once you see planes flying overhead.
