Offensive: This unit can inflict significant damage to other Recon units, with the potential to destroy most light-armored units within a few shots. Infantry units are also easy to destroy, but may overwhelm this unit if significant numbers are deployed. This unit is capable of traversing the battlefield very quickly, and will invariably dominate the front-line.
Defensive: This unit cannot attack Air units, ensuring a quick demise if left unprotected. Long-range Artillery (such as the ★Stheno★) are also capable of decimating this unit, if allowed time to fire. Slowing this unit down with infantry squads will make destroying this target much easier. High-durability Tanks are also capable of destroying this unit, if given enough time.
The Xanthippus VI is the heavily armored variant of the family giving it more durability in the battlefield. If you're looking for a quick victory this is the best variant to take because if you deploy at the start of the battle, this unit will probably be in range of the enemy base when the enemy deploys a unit, and the extra armor may help the Xanthippus VI survive and kill the newly deployed enemy unit, whereas its other variants with less durability may not.
- The Xanthippus VI in-game model is based on the AAV-P7/A1.
