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.

Big sea on the south
The sea is the key to progress. Unlike dry and very dry version of this map without proper fleet you move slowly. But … its support in the bays is limited.
Bot Veh
Neither part of the army is somehow an advantage. Mobile coastal guns from the basic factory vehicles are able to keep enemy ships away a bit.
Hover Ship
Ships have relatively enough space to maneuver. Mostly. Only when you push them into bays, with small cost you can catch a big bitch. Supporting from the water during the attack on the ground is also capable tactic.
Naval attack on the southern base
1) Win Sea 2) together with the hovercrafts and ships attack the enemy base from the south. Most of the enemy are poorly prepared and their economy die in the first attack. Also it happends, that enemy loose one of their command towers.

North hills
Source of surprise attacks and advantageous elevated position for defensive cannons.
South plain
Huge, fast and ferocious battlefield. Most of the games are resolved here.
Weak wind
It is good to remember that all planets of the type DeltaSiege have shity wind. Wind powerplants are not worth it.
Bot Veh
Some are strong in the north, the other in the south. Have nothing to envy each other.
Tactics differes as players
Possibility to win this map almost any way it produced an idol from it. If you try mod Balanced Anihilation, at any time of day you can join in at least two sets 8v8 on this map. Those lunatics are playing it over and over and over…

Huge sea
You can fire almost everywhere from there. If it is mastered, you will usually destroy one of the command towers in the middle of enemy beach. Then it’s usually easy win.
Bot Veh
Vehicles are unable to get to the enemy without huge losses in that hilly land, where rule the bots. In the late stages of the game vehicles can be combined with airforce and then they find their lost mobility.
Hover Ship
Although the boats are doing the most of the job, but do even better in combination with the hovercrafts … and hovercrafts also clean up any hidden installations somewhere behind the hill.
Conquer the sea
The easiest way to win is through the sea. If the battle is not clearly decided there, then game usually ends in deadly air raids. On the land there can be made a breakthrough too, but rarely. Even a novice on a hill can resist for few minutes. And before you will overwhelm him, someone he usually comes to help him and you pull units back with heavy loses and broken nose (tested with my own nose).

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.

Special giant version of the map for NOTA
NOTA Supreme Battlefield (32×32) differ in size except by the fact that water has no metal, which strongly reduces the incentive to build ships and fight for the sea. For 4v4 match it is the ideal map.

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.
