PaPerBaG.'s Vindicator Bomb Guide

By PaPerBaG. - 30th December 2008 - 21:21 PM

PaPerBaG. from the Slayer's House clan has put together a guide detailing how many Vindicator Bombs are necessary to take out Allied, Imperial, and Soviet units. So without further ado, I present his guide:

Many people waste vindicator runs foolishly by either not using 's', the stop command, to bomb infantry or use too many bombs to take out vehicles. When under attack, knowing the amount of bombs it takes to take out certain vehicles can get rid of an entire attack force quicker. For example, if a hammer tank is half damaged, it only takes two bombs to finish it, but you don't have to fully reload the vindicator.

Notes
  • Any frozen unit only takes 1 bomb to destroy
  • All MCVs are the same (42 bombs)
  • For the higher tier units, this data may be slightly off based on factors like Top Secret Protocols chosen or unit promotions. This does hold accurate so that if you divide by 3 if you are using Advanced Aeronautics (2 if you are not) and that will give you the number of vindicators that will take that unit down.
  • Aircraft were not tested, but from experience it's around 2 vindicators per aircraft, but bombing planes on the ground is rather rare.

Empire


Empire is more difficult to measure because point defense drones screw up the measuring based on the unit. For lighter units (like Tengus) they are only protected for 1 bomb, whereas for Tsunamis, they protect 2 bombs. The following bomb requirements are if there are no point defense drones for simplicity.

Infantry
Imperial Warrior - 2
Tankbuster - 1
Engineer - 1
Shinobi - 2
Yuriko - 8

Ore Collector - 14
