"It's like a mini ICBM. Multiply it times 30, THAT is why the Serp is awesome.
The Serp itself isn't a missile; it carries a missile that it launches, then dies, because it has nothing left inside it to power it or give it direction. It's a dedicated -single missile launching- unit, despite the fact that it does look like a missile itself." -CannonFodder100
I hear ya there bud. :) However, I believe it to be more like a homing "sabot".

Let me theorize how it may work.

When the Serp comes within range of it's target, it sheds it's outer casing. Then the rocket motor ignites and it then homes into the target, like a radar or heat seeking missile.


Perhaps this video on Youtube can explain a little of what I mean:

Imagine the Sabot round inside the "casing" is actually the Serp missile. :D :ugeek:
I mean darn it! :x I love 'em sooo much, yet I'll blow up if I try to hug 'em. :cry: :P :roll: :lol:

I love the serp as you don't have to care about the squad getting back alive. Fly in, blow them up and fly out (as dust). Great little thing. When against them. Get onto the ground as fast as possible and use the machine gun to pick them off...

hahaha the most nasty thing you can do is send a single bronstejin to cause severe damage and finish off with a nasty swarm of 30 - 40 serps in Aggr lvl 2 XD nothing can survive that XD!!! the most awesome thing is the silly faces after such cheap attack XD!!!

well, it depends on how much damage can deal the brons before being taken down, or another way to do it is send the swarm and use the diversion to keep doing damage

I make lots, and them send them to a corner, wait for it to reload while attecking somthing and then come back and make another whole load. At the end, select them all, jump into a scout, fly to enemy HS, and then set them to 2 and total ownage!

If Taerkasten failed at killing the enemy HS with large squad of serps, Taer must be prepare for dark future. at least they have a energetic place.

Well, the Serp is pretty good, one of my favourite vehicles since they are cheap, have good firepower, and they can be easily spammed into larger numbers.

But I know the Taer AI usually uses them to take out air units, and they sometimes use it to attack power stations, especially mine, but I usually use them (just four) to capture a power station, while if the HS is at full power, I just use the remaining serps (if they aren't more than 40-50) to capture his Power stations, rush him with Serps while I'm making my Leonid drop so the Leonids pWn the station, and presto, I got my enemy's head!

That's why I also like Serps, and if the enemy HS is pretty powerful and it has full power, I just make 80-100 Serps, and the HS is dead! :lol:
