Strategy Edit

The Special Rifle Command offers strong anti-infantry choices. However, apart from the Scout Sniper, these units do not scale well into the mid and late game.

The Scout Sniper can mount a reliable MP drain on the enemy. With two snipers per squad, it can survive sniper-on-sniper engagements better, but die to indirect fire.

The M3A1 Scout Car is often used with either a Combat Engineer or a Penal Battalion with a flamethrower. This combination is called a "Clown Car" and is very effective at clearing garrisons and chasing down retreating infantry.

The Penal Battalion is a strong close-range anti-infantry squad. When upgraded with flamethrowers, they become a powerful anti-garrison unit, especially with their Satchel Charges.
