the snowspeeder of course...
or any other air-unit.
They are the natural counter, although it seems a bit odd that they do much more damage compared to the movies.

grenade trooper. You can also try the mech destroyers.

NOTE: To stop a assault mech, you need at least 10 to do a quick, decent job. Otherwise, they will be easily taken down by a couple assault mechs, which is around 4.

Yeah WC is right ....mech destroyers are fairly cheap and do a good job if they are in numbers. Look for units that fire BLUE shots, that is anti mech fire! or so i believe

Mech Destroyer and Jedi. DO not make Adv. Plummels they are too expensive in nova crystal and nova crystal is precious.

Mech Destroyers are the way, lots of them. Dont make Adv Pummels? what? they are awesome, esp against an entrenched foe. they dont even take too much nova.


Oh well, matter of taste, i just see pummels being AOK rams but tougher

The Naboo's Royal Crusader works great on assault mechs, even large goups of them.

Use mech destroyers, because they are awsome at other things, not just killing mechs. And why upgrade to hvy pummel when you have butifull 16 range(17 with the upgrade) cannons who can ist back next to your army an slaughter there.

What each color fire is good against:

red: troops
Blue:mechs
Thick green color anything really, except Jedi's
thin green: troops, mechs
Misssiles: do damage to planes.

Post Anti-AT-AT

I'm just a beginner at the game but I love making AT-AT's and sending them in with pretty good protection. The only thing that has toasted them when I play against the computer has been Snow Speeders.

My biggest problem is that I have a hard time protecting the AT-ATs. If I group the AA troops with the mechs, then the AA troops run ahead of the mechs and get toasted on the front lines. If I group the AA troops separately then a couple of AT-AT's always stray too far; the Snow Speeders start shooting up the stray AT-ATs and by the time I notice and get AA troops there, it's too late. Problem remains unsolved.
