Missiles

Anti-Air Missile Launchers of each force from AW2.

These powerful indirect combat units wreak havoc on air units, however they cannot attack land or naval units. They have a minimum range, so they should always be covered by tanks or other directs. Their vision range on Fog of War maps is also quite large. In Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, they are dubbed missiles.

Strategy

Anti-Air Missile Launchers possess a powerful attack and long range, allowing them to cover armored units against air raid. However, they are are more expensive and less manuverable than Anti-Air Tanks are.

Competitive Play

Missiles are generally inferior to Anti-Airs because they're more expensive and slower (since Missiles are indirects, they cannot attack and move during the same turn). This mobility issue is compounded by the fact that air units are very mobile, can avoid Missiles easily and Missiles are vulnerable to a direct attack from an air unit.

Trivia

  • The Orange Star's and Rubinelle's missile unit is based on the American M1097 Avenger AA missile system. However, the real life Avenger is a SAM system fitted on a modified Humvee, instead of a van.
  • The Blue Moon's unit is based on the Russian S-125 Neva/Pechora (or NATO reporting name SA-3 "Goa") SAM Launcher.
  • The Lazurian missile unit is based on the Soviet 9k31 Strela-1 AA vehicle.
  • The Green Earth missile unit appears to be an armoured lorry with a French Crotale SAM turret.
  • The Yellow Comet missile unit is based on the Japanese Isuzu Type 97 4-wheeled truck with an AA missile launcher.
