Mobile Units are military units that have several special features that make them superior to the regular army units in Simcountry.
In addition to the existing features of army units, mobile units have the following added capabilities:
Mobile units can be upgrade to a quality level of 600. Although smaller in size, the units can become very powerful if upgraded to a high quality level.
Mobile units can participate in any war if they reside in the attacked country and are close to the attacked target. For example: if a defensive mobile unit is close to a fortification and the fortification is attacked, either from the air or by a land unit, the mobile unit, will participate and shoot back at the attacker if it has weapons and ammunition that are effective against any of the weapons that are used in the attack.
Only one mobile unit will participate in the defense.
Mobile units are using only professional soldiers and officers. Weapons, ammunition and other materials are the same as used in regular army units. Mobile units can be set up when the player has the needed professional soldiers, officers and all the required weapons, ammunition, trucks and other required materials.
Lost soldiers and officers who have died in fighting must be replaced by professional soldiers and officers. If these are not available, the units will not be resupplied, in the same way that they cannot be resupplied if the country does not have the required weapons, ammunition and other supplies that are needed for the unit.
Mobile Units carry more supplies than standard units and can be supplied by any supply units. The units are supplied with standard weapons and ammunition in the same way other units are being supplied.
All mobile units and wings can be loaded onto cargo shuttles. An entire unit can be loaded on a cargo shuttle and it can be moved either to a space center in a different country where the cargo shuttle can land or to the Crucis space station where it can be stored in a cargo bay that can store up to ten such units.
Cargo shuttles can land in any remote depot you own, or a remote depot owned by a member of your federation and can deliver mobile units and military materials, directly into such depots.

14. Mobile Intelligence Units - Not available yet [ top ]
Mobile Intelligence Units are designed to collect military information about their surroundings. When clicking on the unit on the map, you will be able to get all the information about objects within a distance of 25 around the unit. The unit will provide full information about these objects including weapons, ammunition quality and the supply situation.
Mobile Intelligence units have the size of a brigade and include defensive weapons only. The total size of the unit is 400 weapons. The unit is manned by 1300 military personnel including 1900 professional soldiers and 800 professional officers.
Mobile Intelligence Units can move across all borders. When entering a country that is not in war with the country that owns the unit, there is no possibility to attack any targets. The unit can move around the country and will not be blocked by any objects or local army units. The country that is being crossed by such mobile units is able to attack the mobile intelligence units. The unit will use its weapons to try and fend off the attack. Mobile Intelligence Units are unable to cross the sea between continents.
Mobile intelligence unit include the following weapons:
All Mobile Units can be built by any player who has all the necessary weapons, ammunition, materials and also soldiers and officers that are needed in the setup of such a unit. Mobile units use only professional soldiers and Officers.
Mobile land units can also be purchased on the Crucis space station. Units can be transported to the space station by players who are building them in their own countries. The owner of the Mobile unit can move such units to any of her countries and use them in any war. The units move including the professional soldiers and officers and do not need any local change to their structure before they become operational. If damaged or incomplete, the units will have only partial fighting power and need to be resupplied to return to their full capacity.
16. Supplies and Maintenance for Mobile Units [ top ]
Mobile units use supplies in the same way other units do and the supplies must be delivered by the owner of the units. The units use ammunition for training, military supplies and fuel. Professional soldiers and officers do not receive any salary, it is included in the price paid for these professionals.
The units do not use any supplies, ammunition or fuel while they are stationed on a space station. They do not count as part of the army of any country and the soldiers and officers do not receive any salary.
Once the units are transported to one of the countries owned by the owner of the units, they are treated as part of the army, they use ammunition and fuel and must be supplied.
Mobile units can be damaged in fighting and can lose some of their weapons and soldiers/officers. The units will be supplied with new weapons and soldier/officers only if the country that owns them has professional soldiers and officers that are not allocated to any other mobile unit and there are available supply units to deliver the weapons and materials to the units.
If no professional soldiers or officers are available, the unit can receive supplies but no new weapons and its ability to function will be limited. The unit may be disbanded. If its size is reduced to less than 25% of the original size, it may be dismantled automatically.
Mobile military units are optional and can be used in addition to regular military units. There is no need for any player to use mobile units and it remains possible to conduct wars with regular units only.
The mobile units will be used by players who want to quickly transport troops around, land them from a cargo shuttle or (in the future) from sea, into any location and run wars in any place they want.
Doing so, they could use these units in wars across their empires on all worlds and will probably reduce the need for a full size army in each country.
