Artillery are the most basic long-distance unit in Advance Wars. Artillery are unable to attack the turn in which they move, and cost 6,000G each. Artillery have a range of 2-3 spaces, but that can change depending on the CO. Firing range will also be reduced by one in a Sandstorm.

Artillery Units are effective against all but the strongest Ground Units, and can fire on Naval Units but don't expect them to do too much damage.

The one advantage that Artillery has over Rockets: Artillery moves on treads, allowing them to move over different terrain easier than Rockets, which move on tires.

[edit] Tips

Like all distance units, Artillery can be useful in Fog of War maps if placed in a good location. COs with distance boosting abilities can quickly attack enemies that the opponent thought was safe if you use it at the right time. Grit is great at this, whose increased Indirect Combat range can be a game changer, especially when he uses his CO Power.

Jake receives an indirect combat range increase of one when he uses his CO Power.

In Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, while not seen during the main story Isabella's CO Power "Deep Strike" gives her Indirect Combat Units a +2 Range Increase.

However, unless you are an excellent strategist, it will be hard to make use of Artillery with Max as your CO.
