War Front strategy guide - unit analysis

Every unit poked and prodded for strengths and weaknesses

Yakovlev
Cost: $900
Army Points: 3
Hit Points: 180

There were several variations of this single-engine fighter produced over the course of the war: in War Front, you%26rsquo;ll be deploying the famous Yak-9. Even though German bombing raids hampered production, the plane proved to be highly successful.

Sturmovik
Cost: $1100
Army Points: 4
Hit Points: 280

Just like the Russian people, Soviet industry answered the call to battle when the Germans invaded. One of its most impressive feats was the Ilyushin Sturmovik: between the Il-2 and Il-10, over 36,000 were built. The Il-2 is the model featured in War Front.

Call-In Tupolev Bomber
Cost: $1200
Tech Level Required: 1

The Tupolev TB-3 was a four-engine heavy bomber used by the Soviet Air Force in the 1930s and 1940s. Of course, any plane that was in service in the 1930s stood little chance of success by the middle of the war, and after 1942 the Russians pulled them from duty after 1942. Interestingly, the Soviets considered using the TB-3 as a way to airlift small tanks into battle zones.

Call-In Winters Breath
Cost: $2500
Tech Level Required: 3

With the Ice Spitter technology perfected, the Soviets decided to extend its icy welcome through the use of air delivery.

Call-In Artillery Strike
Cost: $2000
Tech Level Required: 3

The Call-In Artillery Strike is even more nerve-shattering to your enemies than the devastation of the Moving Giant Turret because there%26rsquo;s nothing they can do stop it (aside from capturing your Radio Station, that is).
