Scrin has stalwart
Nod has blackhand
Nod has shadow team
Nod has cyborg
GDI has Disk thrower

(This list does not count rifleman, militant, or buzzers because they are not advanced)

Why does GDI and SCRIN only have 1 anti-infantry team each, while on the other hand NOD has 3... This does not seem fair...

this does not seem very balanced...

GDI also has Snipers. It's also that GDI has more AP armor than Nod. The Scrin also have more AP armor than Nod.
GDI: Wolverine, Goliath, Disruptor, Flacon with EMP
Nod: Raider, Devil's Tongue
Scrin: Razorback, Corruptor, Defiler

There is also the Scrin air fleet, which has the Ravager, which sounds to be a pretty good AP air unit as it is pointed out it uses the Stalwart weapon.

the falcon is a support unit, emping all armoured units.

and the corrupter is supposed to be used as an anti-infantry thing, or to heal allies (scrin only allies i think).

*playmsbk and GA are right on everything they said.
*Corruptor is don´t really sux. Also teir one infantry have their good points.
*Disruptor is fucking effective vs infantry (  Moddb.com   ) . Also they are ANTI-GROUND! (mean good vs anything which can´t fly)
*Falcon (the upgraded one) is good vs them (well, for one unit which can stop even a Mammoth MKII)
*You´re forgiving the air units. Jump jets, Orcas (upgraded), Harpys and the future Raven. Also, even if not recomended to be used on those cases, most bombers and Scrin Ships are actually good.
*NUMBER OF OPTIONS NEVAR MEANED OP-NESS!!1!

The Corruptor is one of the best AP units in the game, it's a little worse than the Devil's Tongue. They also spawn Visceroids, which if become more powerful with 1.5, they'd be a real pain in the *ss.
The Disruptor can take on most basic and advanced infantry units, its only problem with infantry is when it has to take down heavy ones.
The EMP Falcon can take down all basic infantry with ease.

well yeah but lets see nod has the:

Devils Tougne
Buggie
Avatar (Upgraded)
APC garrisoned
Beam cannon 

all of these work great as AP for NOD so i still think GDI needs a "Heavy Machine Gunner" which does almost as much damage as a commando and slight damage vs AV

umm... as much damage as the commando? are you nuts? if you were to mass those at the beginning of the match, you'd be impervious to infantry....

*NUMBER OF OPTIONS DON´T MEAN OPNESS! HEAR ME!!!
*Heavy machine gunner = Wolverine  :P  (but they are really f*cking effective, specially with that upgrade)
*"Almost as much damage as a commando". This is already want TOO much.
*Everything is pretty much good as it already is.

Yeah, you can also count the GDI Titan and Mammoth Tank with the Railgun upgrade and 10 MLRS's at once if you really want to count the Basilisk Beam Cannon (you need 10 of these to be effective against heavies, while 5 of them are good at taking down tier 3 structures)
The garrisoned Scarab is not better than a garrisoned Goliath. If you get Disc Throwers in a Goliath you will get a machine of terror in city combat as it can clear structures, destroy mass infantry, take down air units and destroy buildings. If you get a Sniper Team you will be shredding the enemy's infantry from a freaking huge range.
If we get to mention even slight APness, we can get to the Manta. Unlike most tanks, it can sometimes take on infantry.
And now, I'll mention the air units. Nod only has the Venom\Harpy Mk2 for taking down infantry. GDI has the Jumpjet Trooper and the upgraded Orca ( I won't mention the Orca Bomber as it has that upgrade removed in 1.5). Scrin has the Ravager, the Devastator and the Planetery Assault Carrier.
Also, as Brunez said, your Heavy Machine Gunner is the Wolverine with the AP Ammo upgrade.
