- SA-7 Missile
Because the SA-7 has no other weapons, you have to protect him from enemy infantry, but if the SA-7 is in groups or in buildings, he can be deadly to flying targets, especially planes.
The SA-7 is CST’s perfect counter to TFT's aircraft, however only a semi-counter to their V-44 transport. To ensure a hit on the V-44s, place them in ambush mode or in a building. Having groups of these will likely send any TFT aircraft running.
The 9K32 “Strela-2” (Russian 9К32 “Cтрела-2” — arrow; NATO reporting name SA-7 Grail) is a man-portable, shoulder-fired, low-altitude surface-to-air missile system with a high explosive warhead and passive infrared homing guidance. Broadly comparable to the US Army FIM-43 Redeye, it was the first generation of Soviet man-portable SAMs, entering service in 1968, with series production starting in 1970.
Described by one expert as being "the premier Russian export line", the Strela and its variants have seen widespread use in nearly every regional conflict since 1968.
