Here is my recipe for a cheap, quick and effective squad.
|Take 10 light infantry @ $120 each, built in 2 groups of 5||$1200||
|Add 3 Disc throwers @ $200 each||$ 600|
|and a medic @ $600||$600|
Now you have a team that is -
1 - quick to build
2 - can take out most enemy armour units very quickly
3 - can cover most terrain at a medium pace
4 - is largely self repairing
How's that for delivering "bang for the buck!" !
On the downside, the squad is very vulnerable to flame units...OK, and also to gas, although they can run from the gas!
