Tactics and Strategy

Thresher shines when the enemy is attacking you with such large groups of aircraft, that other AA defenses are overwhelmed by their sheer numbers. As Thresher possesses significant AoE, it doesn't have that problem, and it has enough health to endure, at least temporarily, the enemy's attempts to quickly neutralize it. It works better against gunships, as bombers tend to space themselves out more when attacking in groups.
