Description

The Hercules can haul any land unit in the game. Its twin laser guns and automated cargo ejection system make it ideal for drops into hot LZs.

Tactics And Strategy[edit]

Heavy enemy units can be disabled using Shockley missiles, Gnats or other EMP units, leaving them defenseless. A Hercules then can then fly in and manually load it, leaving it disabled while carried and able to be moved to any location, continuing to take damage in the air.

A Hercules can also pickup any stationary unit and destroy them using their lasers or dropping them from a large height or out of bounds.
