Armor > Tankette Regiment Axis and Allies RTS
 Tankette Regiment > Tankette Matchups | In Conclusion
  The Tankette Regiment is NOT RECOMMENDED for use in online multiplayer

 
The Tankette sacrifices firepower and armor to maximize speed and mobility, which in most cases results in a regiment that is too vulnerable to be successful in online play. While the tankette can hold it's own versus infantry and halftracks, it will be outclassed by any other armored unit. Tankettes are very vulnerable to any of the special op bombs, and will likely be killed by a single, well placed/timed bomb.
 
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A WWI hold over, the "tankette" was dated by the beginning of WW2. It often was used as an armored machine gun in support of infantry, and performed well against the disorganized forces of China; who's armored vehicles often consisted of trucks with metal plates welded on them. In some cases it also featured a 37mm cannon, which was grossly underpowered for any sort of tank combat. Very poorly armored it was reported that heavy infantry weapons such as the USA .50 caliber could penetrate it at ranges of up to 600 yards.  More

 
Tankette Regiment
All Tankette regiments consist of:
[1] Command Tank
[4] Tankette Units
 
As can be seen below, the Tankette Units can matchup ok versus halftrack units, and get "pwnd" by any other armored unit. You will need an advantage in numbers to have any chance versus AT Mech.

In reference to RTS games, it is the use of many units/regiments, usually of the same type, against an enemy. Spam type units/regiments are usually cheap and easy to build, allowing the "spammer" to overwhelm an opponent with sheer numbers.
Large Quantities Required
If you want to ignore our advice and make Tankettes anyway, it's going to take alot of them. No sense making them if your not going to make 20, so that means Mechanized Production and 5 Mech HQ's is a must.
 
For upgrades, about the best you have for Tankettes is Foraging, Diesel Engines, and Plentiful Ammunition; probably in that order.
 
Best used in a surprise attack base rush, or versus noobs, newbs, or nubs.

 
Bomb Warning
Due to an extremely low defense value of 3, the Tankette unit will be destroyed by a single special op bomb unless it is entrenched or has achieved the first level of regiment experience.
 
For this reason, it is recommended to only deploy tankettes when your opponent(s) have NO special op bombs, and even in those circumstances it's a questionable decision.

 

 

Tankette Regiment
 
 
In Conclusion
When playing on maps with alot of forest or jungle Tankettes are not recommended.
Too Expensive and Vulnerable
Even with Mechanized Production, the tankette regiment is too weak and vulnerable to justify their cost. Considering that the USA can deploy 18 AT-Mech for about $300 more than the cost of 18 Tankettes, it's not hard too see theres a huge mismatch in the making.
 
While tankettes can be successful versus infantry, once again their cost is too high to get out sufficient numbers of them against an equally skilled player. For example, why build 10 Tankettes, when you could deploy 18 mortars?
 
As we mentioned before, Tankettes will likely be killed by a single, well placed/timed bomb, so yet another reason not to deploy them.
 
Not to say a talented player can't use and "pwn" with Tankettes, but if they do it's usually just to rub salt in your wounds, so they can laugh about it afterward...
 
Beware of Forest, Jungle, and City Terrain
Although the Tankette is extremely mobile, it still receives the same penalty as all armored units in Forest, Jungle, and City Terrain; so when possible, only engage enemies while in open terrain.
 
Japan is Missing Important Upgrades
Unfortunately for Japan, they are missing most of the best vehicle based upgrades. If you insist on deploying Tankettes, make sure to get the Mechanized Production upgrade and only deploy them from Mechanized HQ's (they can be deployed from Armor HQ's but Mechanized Production has no effect on Armor HQ's)
