Their armor plating and treads allow them to fight in a number of environments with protection against a wide variety of weaponry. These generalized units must commit to an engagement for victory. Coalition vehicles are not as fast and are designed for general purpose, not a specialized role. Coalition have several methods to take and image09secure map control from their opponents. Their gameplay is inspired by Cold War period vehicle tactics and Greek phalanx forces – both of which rely on committing completely to the battlefield.
