"Incoming foe!"
- Mastiff AA Tank

Tactical Analysis

  • Bird Watcher: The Mastiff AA tank is the IPDI's primary anti air platform. Relatively fast and mobile, the Mastiff AA tank is easily capable of keeping up with other IPDI forces. Its twin Harrion SAM systems fire homing missiles that excel at picking off high flying enemy aircraft. Effective against all targets, these missiles deal substantial damage to anything they hit.
  • Spotter: In addition, the Mastiff can also "paint" aerial targets with its radar system, greatly increasing the accuracy and decreasing lock on time of friendly units attacking the enemy target. This however, will render the missile system inoperable due to interference with the missile guidance system.
  • Grounded: The Mastiff AA tank however, trades significant amounts of armor for speed, and is ill suited for front line fighting. Due to the nature of its guidance system, the Harrions cannot be targeted at ground units, and thus leaves the Mastiff vulnerable to ground attacks. Its long lock on times can also be a major issue when targeting low flying ground attack planes or helicopters.
