Tactical Analysis

  • Forging Ahead: Trailblazers are dedicated scouting drones designed for border patrol missions. They are equipped with high resolution cameras, granting them enormous sight radii, and radiological scanners, which enable them to detect stealth nearby. Trailblazers are also equipped with MG-60 LMGs on fleximount platforms, granting them anti-infantry and anti-helicopter capabilities.
  • Lodging In: Trailblazers also serve as the IPDI's primary means of expanding. They can deploy on top of ore nodes outside of the IPDI's current build radius and capture them, granting the IPDI the ability to construct Extractors on it.
  • Breaking Off: However, Trailblazers are expensive units during the early game and it is difficult and cost ineffective to deploy them in force. As they lack anti-vehicle and anti-building capabilities, it is strongly recommended to avoid encounters with enemy armor. Sustained combat will also result in module damage, which can leave the Trailblazer stranded behind enemy lines.
