Halftracks > Halftrack Regiment Axis and Allies RTS
SPW-251 Schützenpanzerwagen SdKfz-251
The Halftrack Regiment is NOT RECOMMENDED for use in online multiplayer Although this regiment has some uses in 1v1 battles, we are mostly concerned (on this site) with the multiplayer aspects of Axis and Allies RTS. For info regarding halftracks in general, see: Mechanized HQ and Axis and Allies General Strategies | Mechanized
 
As we just mentioned, the halftrack regiment has little to no value in online play, but the halftrack unit is seen quite often in another more popular regiment - Anti-Tank Mech - so we figured this would be a good opportunity to take a closer look at the halftrack unit
 
Guess we better take a moment to discuss the difference between regiments and units in Axis and Allies RTS. A regiment is comprised of units, or conversely, the unit is only one part of a regiment.

Type 1 Ho-Ki Halftrack
Taking a quick look at the halftrack unit you can see Japan has the lowest defense value and second lowest attack value, leaving them with the weakest halftracks in the game. Russian halftracks have the lowest attack value, but at least have the mechanical reliability upgrade. Both Japan and Russia are missing the important improved machine guns upgrade.
 
German halftracks are only missing mechanical reliability, but aside from that can compete with those of Great Britian and the United States.
 
Comparing the halftrack regiment: Comparing them head-to-head is pointless as they rarely will fight each other. Occassionally can be used as a counter to snipers in 1v1 play, but the only other times you see the halftrack regiment being deployed is either by noobs or the AI.
 
Comparing the halftrack unit: There is some important info to be gained, probably most importantly is how well they will fight against infantry, as parts of either the Artillery Mech and/or Anti-Tank Mech regiments. Japanese and Russian halftracks do not do nearly as well versus infantry, as their British, German, and USA counterparts.

 
UnOfficial Regiment Ranks
The research and data is all in, and after years of tesing and analysis here's our UnOfficial Regiment Ranks for the Axis and Allies RTS Halftrack Regiment... from first to worst
 
Since the halftrack regiment is comprised only of halftrack units, comparing them is pretty easy :)
United States M3-A1 Halftrack
USA has all the best halftrack upgrades, and the special op mechanized advance gives them the slight edge over Britian for the best halftracks in the game.

Russian M3-A1 Halftrack
Statistically tied with the USA halftrack, although the strongest special op available to Britian for halftracks is fighting spirit (not nearly as strong as mechanized advance).

SPW-251 Schützenpanzerwagen SdKfz-251
German halftracks are only missing mechanical reliability, but aside from that can compete with those of Great Britian and the United States.

Russian M3-A1 Halftrack
Russian halftracks have the lowest attack value, but at least have the mechanical reliability upgrade. Also missing the important improved machine guns upgrade.

Type 1 Ho-Ki Halftrack
Japanese halftracks have the lowest defense value and second lowest attack value, leaving them with the weakest halftracks in the game. Also missing the important improved machine guns upgrade.


 
The Halftrack Regiment is NOT RECOMMENDED for use in online multiplayer Although this regiment has some uses in 1v1 battles, we are mostly concerned (on this site) with the multiplayer aspects of Axis and Allies RTS.

 
In Conclusion
All halftrack regiments in A&A feature four halftrack units and an armored command car. The regiment itself is just like the popular AT Mech regiment, except without the two tank destroyer units; which makes a huge difference. The halftrack regiment can fight infantry, but will be outclassed by any other vehicle based regiment. For that reason, try to find something else to deploy. For more info on what mechanized regiments you should be building, see our Axis and Allies General Strategies | Mechanized
