Small hills in the valley
Important strategic places. Each of them can be hold up for long time against 1.5 times bigger army.
Marginal mountains
Allow unexpected attacks, and support breakthroughs on the wings. Partly impassable due to huge height difference – but this height can be used by units sitting on the hill.
Bot Veh
Although it may seem that strategic foothold on the hills is all you need – and against the advancing front they work well. But sudden fast attacks of vehicles can pass through disturbed defense with surprisingly small losses. Light artillery works with the usuall strength here.
1v1, 2v2 tactic
Use Hammers_ARM/Thuds_CORE for capturing hills each after another (10-15 bots is the optimum, the more interferes each other). Still have your few quick inexpensive robots prepared to reflect the attacks on the wings. The Air Force also works for the same purpose, but cost a lot of time/resource to maintain it.

Marginal plateaus
They are suitable for the location of static defense, especially anti-aircraft guns. ARM figters can take ambush through them with beetle army.
Bot Veh
This map is soon clogged (especially with a larger number of players – 2v2 and 3v3), but until that both types of units are equivalent. Vehicles can take advantage of the speed, three ridges are good for entrenched robots, but the marginal mountains are completely forbidden for all units from the the ground level without air support.
Fight as long as possible…
Fight as long as possible and get as much territory. Once the process is already too expensive, start teching. Try dropping into the neck. Twenty Hammers_ARM/Thuds_CORE sitting on the cliff above the enemy base does not mean any heavy harm to the military sitting between you and the enemy base, but you have a chance to harm enemy economy (for example, you can kill moho engeneer) or at least sidetrack attention for a few seconds from your maneuver on the main battlefield.

Flat lunar surface
Everything quick is deadly here.
Giant craters
… are good for hidding your command tower. There is nothing more embarrassing than to die by weapon of twenty escaped tanks.
Bot Veh
Until the game become blocked by the large armies, you have a chance to rush enemy with clever attacks on his neck, usually mines. If the game does not end until 15th minute, bots are also necessary.
Fast units destroying mines
With vehicles destroying enemy mines you can achieve economic advantage relatively quickly. Only needed thing is to spend more time with micro fighting and less time with construction.
He is killing me with fast cars!
If you are CORE, its possible to build an airport as a second factory. Vasp (antiground aircraft) can help you to catch most problematic vehicles. For ARM you can do the same with the Toad, but it’s not as effective in a defense as CORE one.

Shipwrecks
At the bottom of a dry sea lie a lot of shipwrecks from the old wars of annihilation. It’s a great source of metal to kick your start (1000-2000 of metal I think).
High cliffs
Reefs protect against long-range guns and form a natural protection for centre of base.
Bot Veh
Fast attacks on both wings or on center field are effective. With the wings is one problem. Local platform is elevated a bit so vehicles have problems to drive there – so if you plan to attack that way, it is better to produce units on that ridge.
Strong wings, but …
The attack on the wings is mostly in terms of price/performance ratio cheaper then fight in the middle, but its not good to concentrate there more than half of your power. Bigger usage of resources looses its effect and enemy can attack at the same time in the center. And it happends quite often.

Northsouth central mountains
Varied terrain with plenty of tactical options.
Bot Veh
Robots rule the mountains and only plains have a bit of space for vehicles. This stat also depends on whether you’re playing the usual East vs. West struggle or less frequent North vs. South one.
Occupy the nearest hill above the base
High points are the most important places on the map, so concentrate on them. Hammers_ARM/Thuds_CORE robots are the best for the job. Defend themselves against up to twice the odds. Conversely, if you are trying to conquer the hill, attack from multiple directions or ask for support of the Air Force. On the hill groups of robots collected on small space are easy targets for antiground airstrikes.

Small Supreme Battlefield V2 (16×16)

The basic version of the popular NOTA map. It is a clone of map from Supreme Commander (commercial follower of TA), and I think that I would not brag, if I say: This map is the only achievement that SC provided the world of strategy games.

Natural bridge
Long and relatively narrow battlefield – its overcoming is a condition to harm enemy by the ground attack. You can affect the ongoing battle from the two neighboring seas (within a certain distance from the enemy base).
Sea with Bay
= “The easier one,” for the conquest. The natural protection of the surrounding cliffs ensure that even if the enemy butcher push you into the defensive, you wont lost the harbor.
The sea with long beach
= “The harder one”. It is recommended to try to conquer it as well, but often it is not possible. Mobile antiship defense utilized to repel enemy (water)attacks can be useful in the fight on the “bridge”. From this side also come hovercraft and air-dropping raids, particularly along the edge of the map.
Bot Veh
Little space for ground troops is soon clogged. Light artillery and mobile flaks/SAMs can be although certainly used, but the main fighting force is born usually of robots. Tank attacks here should not to be underestimated, especially if the enemy have opportunity to emerge near your base. If the enemy chooses tank bypass by the beach, you may not have enough firepower to round up all the tanks.
Hover Ship
Intelligently controlled boats do more harm than hovercrafts. Hovers perform good only in huge quantities (sometimes in small also, if both sides neglected naval combat).
Huge number of tactics
This map will probably get a special article about tactics.

The sea bottom -> Giant plain
Naval combat disappears, but no need to be sorry. For ground units it is paradise.
Bot Veh
Each unit of land here find its place and bots are in the later stages of the game better only because of blocked map..
Fast attacks on the wings
Here you can take full advantage of the possibility of tanks ability to quickly attack enemy from side. There’s enough space.
Combining of Air-force
Planes are important and indispensable on every map, but here you try more combinations. Whether you scout, prosecute, hunt, or just bombing and transports.

Sea and coast
Kill the enemy by horde of ground troops? OR Fight both sea and land? …that is the question.
Bot Veh
South coast soon becomes blocked, but the annoying presence of ships usually causes that you will appreciate the speed and armor of tanks. Bots are still needed couse they are inexpensive, but they are a bit easy targets for the ships, especially in larger quantities.
Hover Ship
Among the cliffs is not enough space (chance for hovers), but boats rule at the end.
Playing against newbies
New players (and not only they) are having a big problem to choose the right combination of various components of army for the current military situation. You can succeed with a surprisingly powerful assault on the land, or very early build of some really heavy warship (usually BattleCruiser).

Here you can see how I was beaten by Godde’s ships. Although I defended a hovercraft attack surprisingly, managed to build battlcruiser and even after I cleaned part of his base, eventually Godde beaten me on the water with his enormous material superiority. The only pity is that my Battlecruiser (not set in the factory on “hold position” mode) suicidly left the shore. Such actions brings GAME OVER faster that it was. I destroyed hostile Battlecruiser with the submarine, but then small boats killed my command tower in few seconds.
