HUMMINGBIRD – AIR SCOUT

Hummingbird - UEF Air ScoutThe Air Scout is extremely inexpensive, and it’s this virtue that makes it useful. While an interceptor will often get farther into an enemy base, a single air scout in your build queue will let you stockpile a set of scouts that can crisscross the map looking for a lightly defended way in, and for exactly 1 mass per second.

CYCLONE – INTERCEPTOR

Cyclone - UEF InterceptorInterceptors are the bread and butter of your air defense. They’re fast, effective, and cheap, meaning you can set Engineers to build more without having to pause your other projects. I recommend having one Air Factory set to build infinite interceptors for the entire game.

SCORCHER – ATTACK BOMBER

Scorcher - UEF Attack BomberThe UEF attack bomber is just fine for what it does: create an early threat that forces the opponent to send out his interceptors. If you don’t have the breathing room to upgrade your air factory to high levels, you can produce big packs of bombers that turn a failed attack on the Commander into a success. Just make sure you’re not sending them through any kind of air defense that’s higher than T1 turrets or Cybran mobile anti-air.

C-6 COURIER – LIGHT AIR TRANSPORT

C-6 Courier - UEF Light Air TransportThe advantage of having an early air transport is twofold: you can airlift your assault bots and have a flying gunship to kill enemy T1 forces, or you can make more perilous drops of units or engineers behind enemy lines. Don’t rely on them to live beyond one drop, though; they’re mostly there to strike fear into the hearts of your enemies rather than actually deliver the victory. It transports 6 T1 units, 3 T2 units, or 1 T3 unit.
