Rocket Strike from Comanches

How 'bout those rocket pods?!

The Rocket Pods upgrade is very useful for destroying large numbers of clustered tanks or to expediate destruction of enemy structures. The upgrade installs pods which carry Hydra 70 unguided rockets on the Comanche's wings. The upgrade is researched at the USA Airfield. Comanches can fire multiple salvos from the same pod, given that it reloads within 1 minute. The rockets are unguided and hits friend and foe alike within range.

Tactics and counters[edit | edit source]

Rocket Pods can be used to quickly destroy structures, clustered units, base defenses (being especially effective against Stinger Sites), and moving units in certain choke points. There was no way for an enemy to stop a rocket barrage except to shoot down the helicopter or destroy the airfields of hostile American forces before it is researched.
