This week, we introduce the Mohawk Gunship to devastate enemy ground vehicles. Read on for tips, tricks and counters to master this new unit.
GDI's AH-95 Mohawk Gunship was developed to give GDI a heavily armed ground attack craft that could loiter over enemy targets but was neither as fragile as the Orca Assault Craft nor as expensive as a Kodiak Command Ship. Col. Jackson is particularly fond of the Mohawk, reportedly saying “It’s as if an AC-130 and a Chinook had a baby and it was raised by a Kodiak.”
Mohawks are great for dealing with enemy ground vehicles but are extremely vulnerable to air and infantry based counters. Mohawk Gunships pair well with the Wolverine, which can effectively deal with any air or infantry units.
Unlike the Orca, the Mohawk doesn’t have a burst gun, allowing you to continuously engage enemy units. Be ready to retreat from enemy counters or relocate to a more advantageous position.
Mohawks cannot attack other air units, so sending in a Hammerhead or Phantom will make quick work of this gunship. If paired with a complimentary unit like the Wolverine, be prepared to send it two units or your counter attack may not be successful.
From the Devs:
“We wanted to give GDI a unit that could perform a role similar to the Orca, but in a way that was more reliable but with lower efficacy.” - MrBlack
