Mech

"An Orange Star Mech unit."

Mechs or Mechanized Infantry are very similar to their predecessor, the Infantry unit. They can perform all of the tasks regular infantry can, including capturing buildings and HQs.

Mech units have Machine guns as well as a Bazooka, which enables them to be much more effective against vehicles such as Tanks, APC's, or Rockets. Though given the weight of the extra equipment their movement is 1 less than their Infantry brethren, only 2 spaces per turn. However, they aren't hindered by terrain, including Rivers and Mountains, and also receive a +3 Increase to their vision when on a Mountain in Fog of War.

Mechs also cost more to deploy than Infantry, costing 3,000G to deploy with the exception of Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, which has Mechs costing 2,500G to deploy.

[edit] Tips

While Mechs have stronger firepower, they don't move far, so utilizing APC's and T Copters will be very useful for getting them around in a hurry. Also, protect your Mechs--while their firepower is equivalent to a Tank, their defense is equal to Infantry, so be wary.

Mechs can also be spammed similar to Infantry with increased firepower, but less movement range.
