** In the FOC expansion, Obi-Wan Kenobi has constantly recharging health, the ability to make himself invulnerable for a short period of time, he can make all units in the vicinity flee from him, and on top of all that, he can disable and destroy enemy turrets from a distance. Provided the Rebel player is sensible enough to know when to retreat and heal, he can easily take over an entire planet with an Obi-Wan raid. The only real threats to the lone Obi-Wan are enemy hero characters, AT-ATs, and multiple turrets which protect each other. In the vanilla game, he had Force Heal, which healed not only himself, but all friendly infantry around him.

* AchillesHeel: Imperial Capital ships have external shield generators. Destroying them will make taking down the other hard points more easily as they won't be able to recharge their shields. Both Imperial and Rebel Capital ships will be sitting ducks if you destroy their engines too.

** The ''Gargantuan'' -- Garm Bel Iblis's hovertank -- can carry four units of infantry.



* [[CoolPlane Cool Airspeeder]]: Rebel T-47 Airspeeders and Imperial ''Lancet'' Aerial Artillery.

Rebel T-47 Airspeeders and Imperial ''Lancet'' Aerial Artillery.


Added DiffLines:

* LightningBruiser: Garm Bel Iblis can wipe out entire garrisons by himself. His hovertank is shielded, has two heavy cannons, six anti-infantry batteries, a blast wave attack that does area damage to nearby units, and is pretty fast. The Gargantuan is even rated in-game as an AT-AT killer!


Added DiffLines:

* MagikarpPower: The Rebels have the worst units in the beginning of the game. By Tech 5, they probably have the most versatile fleet, and on the ground, they can blitz planets with just Garm Bel Iblis.

** Super Star Destroyers (or Star Dreadnoughts) are ludicrously powerful, having several dozen turbolaser platforms capable of terrifying barrages of fire, and can easily take on large fleets all by itself... unless the fleet is able to position themselves behind it, due to the majority of its weapons being placed on the front half. It requires a support fleet to protect its flank to last beyond even one such battle.
