Otherwise known as a Missile Vet, the Anti-Air Veteran wields powerful missiles that can bring down enemy air units in no time. However, the missiles cannot target-lock at low altitudes, and Fighters can easily execute a barrel roll to dodge them, making them wildly ineffective against all but the closest enemy ground units. As a foot soldier, the Missile Vet is also susceptible to Gunship and Bomber attack.

Dossier Intel[edit | edit source]

Western Frontier[edit | edit source]

"Often assigned to Battlestation battalions, specialist anti-air infantry carry a portable IS-III Silverfish launcher. The missile type's main drawback is its inability to reliably track air vehicles performing "High-G" maneuvers."

Tundran Territories[edit | edit source]

"The Spodnik tracking unit uplinks to Tundran surveillance satellites in order to lock-on to enemy aircraft. Dated equipment means targeting resolution is insufficient to accurately track ground-based units."

Solar Empire[edit | edit source]

"A sophisticated heads-up display is incorporated into the helmet component of the "Darting Shrike" anti-air missile system. In addition to targeting data, the device can receive over 300 entertainment channels, with an incorrect button press leaving its user overwhelmed with consumerist propaganda."

Anglo Isles[edit | edit source]

"Anglo anti-air infantry consider their A-23 "Puffin" portable SAM armament so potent that they deem it bad form to use it against infantry or armored vehicles, purposely disengaging auto-lock when confronted with ground targets."

Xylvania[edit | edit source]

"XN-16 "Ack-Ack" infantry are equipped with handheld Flakker anti-aircraft missile launchers that can drop air units from the skies in seconds. Their dual-sight aiming system is all but useless against ground targets, however."

Iron Legion[edit | edit source]

"A brace of Shrieker anti-air missiles could down aircraft in seconds. The distinctive howl of the rockets of the Legion "Wing Clipper" divisions were usually heard by Solar Empire pilots long before a missile-lock tone."
