A heavy plane is a original unit from the game, The Conquerors. It is used commonly by people who do not like using space links.
A heavy plane is mainly used in mid-late games. They are used in mid-late games due to wars occurring around the 60 minute mark. When the game is in the beginning, people will most likely not get a airport since it would waste your money.
When using heavy planes, it is a good idea to do it in groups, but when an anti-air tank is near, make sure to use other units like tanks and soldiers to fight it off, due to anti-air tanks being able to shoot a plane down easily. If you plan to have a plane that is super fast, it would be a good idea to have a space link.
- Like all "Heavy" units, its fuselage appears to be covered in metal plates, possibly steel.
- Even if it appears with more armor, the damage is the difference, not the health.
