The narrow steep passages
There are four of them (three at the rivers and one in the middle of the map). They are basically deadly for all vehicles. They either drown in the water or die in the enemy’s fire when searching path.
Bot Veh
Robots are better than vehicles in all directions. The only meaningful use is for light artillery, flaks and heavy rocket vehicles of tech_lvl 2.
FFA tactics
Just watch fords and then just invest into the Air Force. A few dozen rocket robots can deal with any surprise ground attack, air force watch landings. The game usually ends when player_1 blitzbomb player_2 and player_3 totaly smash player_1 meanwhile with long-range plasma cannons (LRPCs). If player_1 have enough bombers and they are at least somewhat intelligently controlled, the player_1 usually wins.
How to outsmart player_1 (the one with the bombers)?
Becouse I’m mostly the player_3 (the one with big guns), I preventively rid of my opponents air superiority. On this map it is particularly easy, since the airspaces are small and very close each other, side by side. Just take 1-2 fighters and fly over the edge of enemy territory. Patrolling enemy air forces will follow you in that moment. There is nothing easier than to retreat back into your base and kill half of enemy airforce in fire of your anti-aircraft defense.

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.

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.
