Description

The Charon is the basic air transport. It is ideal to ferry units to the front or make a drop deep behind enemy lines, but should not be used to land in areas with any kind of AA cover. It can only transport 'Light' or 'Medium' units, that is, units that cost 1000 metal or less.

Tactics and Strategy[edit]

The Charon can be used offensively by manually loading an enemy worker while they build, then flying them to allies to destroy or dropping them into an area that could damage them or leave them useless.
