Steel Talons Units

Infantry and Aircraft


How to read this page: The values for each unit were obtained from the 1.02 Kane's Wrath XML files. The armor percentages indicate the percentage of damage the unit takes from each damage type. Something with 75% cannon armor takes 75% damage from a weapon that deals cannon damage. Time between bursts refers to the time between the end of one burst and the start of another. Damage per clip indicates that the weapon fires a rapid succession of projectiles, damage per shot indicates a singular attack. Units with multiple weapons have the damage, range, and firing rate values for each weapon listed separately. Pay close attention to the wording.
