Tactical Analysis Edit

  • Pointed upwards: The Tracer is at first glance, unimpressive and weak. However, underneath its shell is a powerful anti aircraft cannon that excels at its sole task, that of ensuring clear skies overhead.
  • One vision, one purpose: As a unit dedicated exclusively to the task of air defence, the Tracer little more than a gun on legs. It is next to blind, hideously slow, and completely helpless against anything not above it.
  • Appearances can be unassuming: The unassuming appearance of the Tracer also allows it to retract into its shell, hiding it from aircraft. While it must remain immobile the entire time and remains painfully obvious to anyone on the ground, it can be quite a nasty surprise for a pilot passing overhead...
  • Numberless: The advantage of this extreme overspecialisation is that the Tracer is incredibly cheap, and can be built in vast numbers. Like other Protectorate units, its weapon varies depending on the module equipped.
