A delightful turn-based but high-speed wargame, with more than a few shades of Advance Wars to it, but a more grounded approach.

MEet your army



Infantry are the basic troops forming the backbone of any fighting force. 

+ Versatile.



The Marksman excels at picking off targets beyond their counter attack distance. Once inside counter attack range, they become very vulnerable!

+ Longest range direct attack.

- Extremely vulnerable to counter attack.


Machine Gunner

While the Machine Gun can't move and attack in the same turn, it compensates by dealing both suppression and regular damage.

+ Deals bonus suppression when attacking.

- Can't move and attack in same turn.



Artillery has the longest range of any unit in the game - perfect for laying down suppression from afar. Just don't let it get flanked!

+ Longest range indirect attack.

- Very vulnerable to direct attack.
- Slow.
- Can't move and attack in same turn.


Combat Car

Fast and lightly armoured, the Combat Car is great for flanking, scouting, and attacking support units.

+ Fastest armoured unit.

- Vulnerable to anti-armour.


Heavy Tank

The Heavy Tank's thick armour and large bore cannon make it a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

+ Armour-piercing.
+ Excellent survivability.

- Slow.
- Expensive.


Shock Troops

Shock Troops fight with devastating determination and firepower. No matter how much damage they have taken, they still fight at full capacity. They specialise in close-quarters encounters.

+ Always attacks at full strength.

- Short range.
- Still vulnerable to suppression.



Cavalry are fast moving, and best used to flank units. They are particularly useful against support units.

+ Fastest non-motorized unit.
+ Always attacks indirect fire units at full fighting strength, ignoring wounds.

- Short range.



Cheaper and faster than Artillery, the Mortar supresses enemies from a decent distance.

+ Long range indirect attack.

- Vulnerable to direct attack.
- Can't move and attack in same turn.


AT Gun

The long-range AT Gun has the best armour penetration on the battlefield. However, it is very slow and vulnerable to direct attack!

+ Long-range direct attack.
+ Armour-piercing.

- Weak against unarmoured units.
- Slow.
- Can't move and attack in same turn.


Light Tank

Decent armour protects the Light Tank from small arms fire. Its small bore cannon blasts through other light armour.

+ Fast.
+ Armour-piercing.

- Vulnerable to anti-armour.
