—Hydra Cannon

The Hydra Cannon is a Russian special unit delivered through Tank Drop, along with Tank Killer.


Hydra Cannon focuses on suppressing infantry groups, its machine guns can effectively kill infantry near the deploy zone and the rockets can take simple damage on multiple targets. The downside is that this unit is only suitable for assault and harassment, cannot be used for frontal attacks. To ensure the speed, it only equipped light armor.


Our Tank Killers and Hydra Cannons make for an excellent anti-unit support. You can deploy more of these units with a Tank Drop once a Palace is built.
