A basic overview of the different types of infantry available in Iron Conflict.
Guide to Infantry
In Iron Conflict, players choose from several different unit types to create formations. Each unit type has its own special characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses. By combining different types of units together, players can create well-rounded formations with units that complement one another effectively. They must also coordinate with their teammates to ensure that the team as a whole is able to deal with the challenges they face on the battlefield.
Infantry feature the highest Concealment stats of all the units in Iron Conflict. Making effective use of these soldiers will be one of the keys to dominating the battlefield.
Currently, there are two types of infantry in the game: Scouts and Fighters.
- Firepower: ☆
- Defense: ☆
- Mobility: ★☆
- Ground Visual Range: ★★★★☆
- Air Visual Range: ★★★★☆
- Concealment: ★★★★★
- Scouts will be your eyes on the battlefield, and are second only to reconnaissance aircraft in this regard.
- These soldiers have higher Concealment than reconnaissance aircraft and are not easily spotted by the enemy.
- Their HP and Defense are quite low, so when spotted, they should be ordered to pull back.
- These soldiers should be placed near the front lines and should work in cooperation with reconnaissance aircraft to spot enemy positions and movements.
- Firepower: ★★
- Defense: ★
- Mobility: ★
- Ground Visual Range: ★★★
- Air Visual Range: ★★
- Concealment: ★★★★★
- Fighters should mainly be used to augment damage output from more powerful units, and to flank around forward enemy units to attack rear long-range assistance units like artillery and missile launchers.
- Compared to Scouts, Fighters have better Firepower at the expense of Visual Range.
- Fighters can use mines, grenades, and RPGs. They can also have an anti-air rocket launcher accessory that can be equipped to deal considerable damage to enemy aircraft.
- The distance of Fighter accessory weapons is rather limited compared to tanks. However, they are well-suited to sneak attacks in forests, towns, and terrain with lots of cover and places to hide. As soon as the sneak attack is finished and the unit has been spotted, they should retreat back into cover and escape.
- Fighters can be used at the front lines to assist friendly tanks, in the rear to protect friendly artillery and missile launchers, or to sneak behind enemy lines and destroy their support units.
All in all, infantry make effective support units, but lack the Firepower and Defense required to serve as the core of a formation. In the right hands, these units can be a critical part of your team’s fighting force.
