T2 UEF ENGINEER

The T2 Engineer represents a very worthwhile increase in performance and build capability over T1 Engineers. You’ll want them for T2 power generators as well as their vast array of defensive options. They build twice as fast, and although their armor is still low, it’s enough so that a couple patrolling T1 units won’t kill it if it keeps moving.

PILLAR – HEAVY TANK

The Pillar is a perfectly serviceable heavy tank, and the backbone of your T2 land forces. Its chief virtue is its high health, and its ballistic cannon can catch more units with its area of effect than it looks. They’ll still die to T3 assault bots, but they can push back enemy forces until then.

SKY BOXER – MOBILE AA FLAK ARTILLERY

Mobile flak guns are a good precaution if you suspect your enemy of having gunships and you’re not confident in your ability to win an interceptor battle. You don’t need a whole lot of them, as their very presence will make bombers obsolete, but they remain useful as support for T3 units.

FLAPJACK – MOBILE MISSILE LAUNCHER

Unlike other factions, the UEF’s mobile missile launcher is mainly an artillery piece: a pack of them can lay waste to even shielded defenses because they have a big payload in a single rocket. Don’t expect them to win land battles alone, though, as they have paper armor. They have the same range as your T2 Point Defenses, so they can usually engage point defenses without losing too many comrades to the adjacent defenses.

RIPTIDE – AMPHIBIOUS TANK

The Riptide does a lot of damage and it’s very fast, but its range is its undoing. They build very slowly, they can’t go head-to-head with other T2 units or even a large mob of T1 ground units, and they can’t defeat land defenses at all. So use them as surprise attackers, coming in from behind and destroying mass extractors and stray engineers. A huge amphibious assault is difficult to stop, especially if the enemy has focused on subs instead of frigates.

PARASHIELD – MOBILE SHIELD GENERATOR

The UEF’s mobile shield generator is awkward and a big energy hog, but it really helps against opposing land forces or defenses. The shield will buy you time, and that’s what you need – have one for each set of real land units. While they can still help at T3, they’re mostly there to protect your more vulnerable units like artillery and mobile flak guns.
