-Reconnaissance is very useful. Lead a blind assault into enemy territory with medium Vulcan tanks and you will quickly learn how fragile they can be.
-Avoid attacking piecemeal. Instead, take the extra turn to make sure everything is in place before you assault serious fortifications.
-Use combined arms since artillery is useful for taking out enemy infantry before they can use rocket launchers on your vehicles. By the same token, your tanks are the best weapons against enemy tanks.
