Info

Don’t let an enemy Vanguard get too close. It’s high damage and massive armor makes it a formidable foe. It fires a deadly Uber Cannon that deals area of effect damage, capable of taking out multiple units per shot.

A group of Vanguards at the head of a formation do an excellent job at soaking up damage and keeping the attacking army alive. When paired with Combat Fabbers, not much can stop them.
