Rockets are a long-distance attacking unit that cannot attack on the turn it moves. Rockets, although they cost more, are usually much more helpful than Artillery, although it depends on the situation you are in. Most likely for balance, Rockets do not have a very high movement range.
Rockets have a firing range of 3 to 5 spaces and can cause more damage than Artillery, which is devastating to most unit types that it can hit, including Naval Units that get within firing range. They cannot fire on Submarines that have submerged.
Rockets are especially deadly in Fog of War maps with woods placed in good positions, even more so when Grit is commanding them. Unlike Artillery, Max can make good use of Rockets, although he must be closer than other COs have to be.
