- Vehicles and artillery
- Field gun.
Field gun's main role is to provide covering fire for defending infantry. Field guns are very good at destroying tanks, armored cars and stopping infantry attacks. But they can't fire at high angle and are inaccurate at big range, so they can't support infantry assault .
- Heavy artilley.
Heavy howitzers with calibre of 105-113mm in batteries of 4 guns are very powerful and can turn big territory into moonscape . Their main role is to support infantry assault and lay down artillery barrages on enemy positions. But they cost most of the points player has to spend on units, so he can buy only few infantry squads besides heavy howitzers
- Machine guns.
Stationary machine guns - main weapon of defence. They can stop almost any infantry attack, killing dosens of enemy soldier. But lacking mobility, they can't be used to support infantry advance.
- Armored car.
Most mobile vehicles in multiplayer. They are very good against infantry, mortars and machine guns and can support infantry advance, but are very vulnerable to field guns.
Whilst not having same firepower as field guns and howitzers, mortars can provide quick and accurate fire support for infantry.
Tanks were created in desperate search for weapon, which could brake the stalemate at Western front. Lacking mobility, they were very good at destroying barbed wire, machine gun postions and clearing enemy trenches. But as armored cars, they lacked thick armor, and were easy targets for enemy artillery.
