Stinger soldiers are deployed at the Barracks and require DefCon 2 and a Field Hospital. They're $1200 each and very effective against aircraft and helicopters only. They can Ambush and enter buildings.
The A-10 now uses its nose-mounted Gatling gun against ground targets. It will automatically strafe the center of the target circle, inflicting medium damage in a straight line through the center of that circle. It is normally sufficient to take out infantry and light vehicles, and 3-4 Gatling strafing attacks can be enough to destroy a light structure.
The range of the MLRS systems is now vastly improved, as indicated on the green circle on the mini-map. This obviously makes the “Counter-Artillery Radar” upgrade much more powerful, as it reveals enemy artillery and allows the MLRS to fire back.
By clicking the “Fire at will” button, the MLRS will automatically open fire at all enemy targets in range and in sight.
The longer the distance to the target, the more scattered will the rockets be.
The FFG-7 OLIVER HAZARD PERRY-class frigate costs $4000 and is deployed at the Shipyard.
It detects stealth units including submarines.
It deploys one SH60B Sea Hawk helicopter which, while hovering, will suspend a Sonobouy that also gives stealth detection.
By deploying several Sonobouy (i.e. dropping it in the water), a Sea Hawk can reveal large areas of fog of war, and also giving stealth detection. A Sea Hawk can deploy one Sonobouy every 15 seconds, at no cost.
Sonobouys remain deployed for 90 seconds.
Lost Sea Hawks can be replaced at a cost of $1000.
The Oliver Hazard Perry has a powerful deck gun capable of indirect barrage fire, its main offensive weapon however is a long-range Harpoon anti-ship missile that can be launched once every ten seconds.
The Oliver Hazard Perry has a powerful autocannon as anti-aircraft defense.
