Platoons are the maneuver elements used to fight battles in War Commander, whether the battle be a Rogue Faction Base (A Non-Player Character depicted by yellow highlighting on the World Map), or human player (depicted by red highlighting on the World Map).

Platoons can consist of human ground fighters (i.e., Riflemen, Heavy Gunners, Motar Team, Flamethrowers, Suicide Bombers, Snipers, and the Hercules) found in the Barracks, and/or vehicular units (i.e., Jackrabbits, Rocket Buggy, Humvees, Rhinos, Razorbacks, Paladins, Challengers, and Mega Tanks) found in the War Factory.

NOTE : Aircraft Units can not be added to a platoon.

Creating & Managing A PlatoonEdit

  • Platoon Capacity - Each Platoon has a limited Capacity. Every Unit added to the platoon uses up an amount of space of this capacity.  Any unit may be added to a platoon that is available in storage.A platoon's Capacity may be increased by upgrading the Storage Building.
  • Platoon Units - Units in a Platoon may be placed in up to four different Squads.  This is useful for deploying only part of a platoon or combining Squads from multiple platoons during a attack.  To do this all the squads you wish to use at once must equal no more than one full platoon capacity. 
  • Platoon Location - Platoons in the Main Platoon Panel are outlined in 4 colors to represent where it is :
    • Green - A platoon that is located in the base.
    • Blue - A platoon deployed on the map.
    • Gold - A platoon remotely located in a Resource Deposit.
    • Red - In Active Battle or Destroyed Platoon
  • Platoon Repairs - Repairs to Platoons are done from the Main Platoon Panel. Only one Platoon may be repaired at a time.  The player must manually start repairs on each platoon after the previous one is completed.

Deploying A PlatoonEdit

    From Within Your Base - A platoon may be deployed to the map from a Single Platoon Panel.

  • 1 to 10 Platoons may be deployed the map at one time. This is determined by the level of the Storage Building.

Platoons on the MapEdit

  • Controlling Platoons - A Platoon may be Moved, Viewed or Recalled to Base while on the map by Left-Clicking it then selecting the appropriate Menu Item.
  • Moving Platoons - A platoon may be moved by
    • Left clicking platoon, selecting the four point icon then dragging to destination
    • Clicking on the destination, selecting the Call Platoon option then selecting the platoon you wish to move.

  • Finding Platoons - There are several ways to locate a deployed platoon on the map.
    • From Inside Base -  By opening the Main Platoon Panel then a S\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ingle Platoon Panel of the deployed platoon and clicking the "Find" button. This panel also gives the map coordinates where it is located.
    • From the Map - Located in the upper left part of the map screen is a Deployed Platoon button which when click on will take you to each platoon in succession or when double clicked display a drop down menu to select the specific platoon you want to find.
  • Platoons Speed - The sped of a platoon is shown at the bottom of Single Platoon Panel. For mixed Platoons the Speed for the whole platoon is that of the slowest unit in its makeup.
  • Identify Platoon Makeup - Platoons are represented by 7 different Icons while on the map.  These give you and other players a rough idea of the platoon's Unit makeup in both Number and Type. See below for Unit Key:
