  New RA3 Unit Profiles: The Guardian Tank and Waveforce Artillery - Official News

EA is on a blast today, adding two new profiles.

First up is the Guardian tank, a main tank with a very nice twist- With help of its laser guide, enemy armour melts instantly. Snip:

The main battle tank of British origin, the Guardian became the mainstay of Allied forces on the ground worldwide after besting the Grizzly, an American-made design, in field tests across the board. While the Guardian's performance characteristics admittedly did not exceed those of the Grizzly by a wide margin, even a narrow victory was enough to justify switching production lines over to this newer model. After all, the Allied War Council fully expected to have to deploy Guardians in bulk in order to stave off Soviet armor divisions, believed to be the strongest in the world. To that end, the Allied Guardian Tank has proven to be something of an underdog, effectively helping to repel larger Soviet forces while bolstering the combat-effectiveness (if not the morale) of coalition forces caught in the same struggle.

Yay for British accents (If there won't be multilingual versions for Austria, someone's going to be pissed! Aaargh!!! )!

Then, it's time for the incredible powerhouse that is the Waveforce artillery. This also may be the very best profile description I've read yet. Here's an excerpt:

The competitor to the Wave-Force Artillery was a more-traditional artillery piece designed by Shirada Shipworks, based on its successful Shogun-class battleship main gun. The Shirada vehicle gained political support after Kanegawa, in an overzealous and politically insensitive moment, referred to its Wave-Force technology as "The Divine Cauldron of Justice". This was blasted as an affront against the Emperor, in the sense that none save the Emperor could arbitrate divine justice against the enemies of the Empire of the Rising Sun. And at this time, Cherry Blossom party leader Shika Hiromoto became a leading voice against the Wave-Force, urging the Empire of the Rising Sun to embrace its traditional roots rather than give in to "the perverse temptations of counter-traditionalism and technological hedonism". In the weeks leading to her assassination, she engaged in a very public, very bitter disagreement with her father, now a high-ranking Kanegawa official, to the embarrassment of the entire Imperial court. Her assassination seemed to cast under the rug a scandalous incident that the Empire needed to move past.

Guardian tank kinda has the body of the Stealth tank of Nod, pretty cool though. The Waveforce is just awesome! But if your a good strategy player all you have to do is move out of it's firing line as it only shoots straight. So I guess it would be good against comps mostly.

The problem with that is that in the heat of battle, against all the other imperial forces at your door, you won't really have the time or the space necessary to escape the firing zone. Coupled with the possibility of a few Sudden Transports pretending to be Waveforces, it would take exceptionally good micromanaging to evade the artillery. It'd be a better strategy to just scramble your airforce to take out the artillery while the rest of your forces concentrate on the rest of the Empire's forces.

The Waveforces aren't as hampered as you would make it seem. They only fire straight, but they will turn their turret to keep locked onto their target. They cannot move while charging or firing, but you cannot dodge the blast.

That too. I think it's the same with the Athena. If you move from the target area it will just stop the uplink, retarget you, and fire again. And since the V4 launches smart rockets, you simply don't evade that particular piece of artillery.
