Description

The Swift can hit both land and air. It is effective against air units with its guided missiles and lasers, but enemy AA and air superiority fighters will kill it quickly.

In numbers, it can harass land units and is suitable for raiding.

Swifts are equipped with afterburner jets which are activated by pressing D on the keyboard. These give the Swift a massive speed boost, allowing them to execute incredible combat and evasive maneuvers.


Tactics and Strategy[edit]

The Swift is useful for scouting enemy bases using its speed boost. It can fly over an enemy base and find out what buildings are there, with its speed boost allowing it to outrun missiles and other anti-air weaponry.
