Since artillery units make arcing, ranged attacks, they can attack with no risk of losses by bombarding distant enemy units. Air defense also Is able to attack their lofty targets without fear of retaliation. However, since many air defense and artillery are towed weaponry, you must mount them If you wish to move them to another location. Remember that units mounted In trucks or halftracks defend poorly, and cannot launch an attack or provide support fire. Do not move these units too close to enemy units; use their ranged attacks to their advantage, especially since, even dismounted, these units are vulnerable to attacks by tanks and Infantry. Because of the nature of their targets and weaponry, terrain has no effect on artillery and air defense attacks and defensive fire.
