SR90 BLACKBIRD – SPY PLANE

SR90 Blackbird - UEF Spy PlaneThe Spy Plane takes a while to build, but it’s still very inexpensive. You’ll only really need one spy plane, because its sight range allows you to see the edges of the enemy base without being shot down. Unless they have T3 air defenses, you should be able to make it all the way through the enemy base before they catch up to you. On patrol, I’d rather have interceptors, but for simply keeping you up to date, a spy plane is more cost-effective than sending your interceptors on a death mission.

WASP – AIR SUPERIORITY FIGHTER

Wasp - UEF Air Superiority FighterThe Wasp is a very expensive anti-air unit, so you should only build it if you think you’re going to need to kill enemy air units on a regular basis. They fly so fast that they won’t provide proper cover for a bombing run, but they can come in and ambush the enemy interceptor force, and they are the best way to deal with experimental air units.

AMBASSADOR – STRATEGIC BOMBER

Ambassador - UEF Strategic BomberStrategic bombers build so slowly that they require a big group of Engineers. The word “strategic” there shouldn’t be taken lightly: they can actually kill interceptors with their anti-air guns, they fly high enough that it takes a SAM site a while to kill them, and of course their bomb is fearsome. These things are wasted on enemy land forces, as their inaccuracy makes them just as likely to take out your guys as theirs; instead, stockpile them together with an enormous force of other aircraft to distract enemy air defenses and use them for a surgical strike on an ACU, artillery piece or nuke missile defense.

BROADSWORD – HEAVY GUNSHIP

Broadsword - UEF Heavy GunshipThe UEF’s unique unit, the Heavy Gunship’s main virtue is its heavy armor. It’s a gunship, so it’s vulnerable to attacks from other gunships as well as T2 flak anti-air, but the sheer amount of firepower it can dish out makes it a formidable weapon. A heavy gunship strike can eat up an attacking ground force for breakfast, then retreat to an Air Staging Facility while the enemy fighters run into your wall of air defense.
