Strategy
Speed = Life

Your armor section is your hunting pack. Keep them always on the move, darting in and out of range. You will be tempted to slow the section down to use the ECM bonus from the Kahn but try to keep them all double moving till you can bring them to point blank range with your opponents defenders. Combine your attacks on the most dangerous targets one at at time. With a barrage of 10 Gauss Canon shots you'll make even super heavies think twice.

For the objectives use your Infantry teams. These are not the specialized armor hunting teams the Rach are known for, these are rapid deployment teams. Get them in get the objective and get out. Liberal use of your smoke will help you get on target quickly under cover.

Your specialist section is there to deal with pesky infantry and soft targets rushing to get to those very same objectives you are. Again keep them moving and keep them out of range of your opponents.

Last but not least is your flight section, outfitted for orbital insertion they can be anywhere on the board you need them. Use them to disrupt your opponents plan, strike deep in side their lines to take out support units or hunt down soft targets racing to objectives. Also don't be afraid to sacrifice them for the objective. Drop them dead center in front of your opponent to draw fire away from your other units.
