    Concerning the Soban and Coal match ups vs Khaaneph

    Coal def turrets are weak in the match up due to BDs being effective at one shoting them(150cu to 250cu trade in khaan's favour) and the Khaan carrier also being effective at destroying them
    ALMs meanwhile have 1100 hp requiring 2 BDs to kill and used properly aren't actually costing you extra CUs to have available

    Carriers wise the Coal carrier scales well into late game and offers alot of value on the power invest, Cruise missiles allowing you to either deal 7k damage to the Khaan carrier(12500hp) or wipe out their siege/rail forces
    The Soban carrier meanwhile struggles to pull its weight, regardless of the power investment, ALMs do offer a potent tool for punishing rails and eco harass at cost to CUs.

    Railguns Soban rails are just better, use height bonus and range to quickly decimate Assault rails
    Keep in mind Soban rails with no upgrades and no height bonus need 4 hits to kill stock Assault rails while Coal rails only need 3. This is misleading however as this gives Soban and Coal rails the same time to kill vs an AR.
    Once Soban upgrades hit they are just better both in durability(+10hp +1 armour) and fire power (450 burst, 6000 DPM vs 5700 DPM Soban vs Coal) Soban also have mark tarket on top of this adding a further 26% damage and accuracy modifier at the cost of the marking units damage output (for example Soban rail damage increased from 225 to 283, effective DPM per Railgun becomes 7560).

    Those Khan siege can withstand a direct hit from cruise missiles... it knocks them up pretty bad... but if there is nothing around to follow up they heal right back lickiedy split!

        Coal cruise missile damage all off is a thing, I believe the damage drops from 7500 - 700 depending on proximity.

        Siege cruisers have 3500hp meaning they can survive about half way out from the point of impact
