    if you got 3 then you shouldn't take any damage and if any will be instant repair the as guns have to be hit from cloaked or they will shoot you

    What I do is run an attack on Giant Thor's with my titans and one Cyclone which needs upgrading.

    Send 1 per SS40.  Before you get to Level 10, you'll take nominal damage - like 10 minutes or less but will upgrade  fast.  Suggest you put 1 in each of your air platoons (normal and helipads) - that way you can leverage instant repair on both separately.  You'll level them up very quickly.  

    Important note - Once level 10 - they are max range, so they will take less damage.


    This works well

    I was told 12 max will fit in a helipad toon. Is this true?

    Thorium Deposits are great for VXP. Large won't give too much damage and you can pick off Giants after lvl 10 with minor damage.  If you have a Titan that is maxed out, then have one or two trail it with Ruby on for any attack.  With a bit of skill and practice I was able to get one to lvl 20 in about two days.

    if I new how to make a vid on cyclones on a hh45 I'd show you'd all that you take instant repair from them useing 3 cyclones cyclone at 550 ramge out ranges the blitz in there only gun that can shoot you is aa but shooting from cloaked kills it before it gets a shot most of the damage you take comes from last stand and men from the towers

    I use just 1 and do HH45's. It takes only 4 to 5 of the HH45 to get to rank 10. Worth waiting for them to heal in between HH45's

    When I look to upgrade my CYCLONES I look for a few things 

    • A base where they will likely not take damage.
    I found that the two best bases to do are the SS40's and HH45's.
    • The SS40's have like 25 Level 4 DP's all with 120,000 health plus 2 Lv 6 Strongholds & 2 Lv 6 Towers with 150,000 & 80,000 health respectively, plus a lot more.  And the best part is there is nothing in the base that can touch the CYCLONES.  
      • The drawback is you get very little in  resources and virtually no Thorium.
      • See this wiki page for the current layouts of the SS-40's ----> SICKLE SYNDICATE - LEVEL 40 BASE 
    • The HH45's also have a lot of Level 6 DP's each having 192,000 health and other things that make a good vXP total. The good here is that while you are grinding your cyclones you make pretty good Resources, 200,000 Thorium and 200 Metals each base you do.
      • The Drawback the AA Plasma's can hit your Cyclones ( no matter their rank ) so unless you are using enough Cyclones at once to sneak up on them and destroy them in 1 shot they will damage your Cyclones. 
      • See this wiki page for the current layouts of the HH-45's ----> BOSS BASE
    So if you are grinding enough Cyclones - HH-45's, If your doing 1or 2 or more but at low ranks then I would do the SS-45's.

    ALL OTHER ROUGES are to spread out with low level and few DP's in them.. so if your looking to grind then I would not do these.....

    All Blitz's in the HH-45's are LEVEL 4 which any Rank of Cyclone WILL BE ABLE TO OUTRANGE! 

    However the AA Plasma's found in HH-45's are Level 7 which NO LEVEL of Cyclone can outrange!

    So to destroy the AA Plasma's you need to have enough firepower in your cyclones to destroy them in 1 shot or you mush fire on a different target right in front of it that will splash destroy the AA Plasma's.  

    Some layouts this second option is not that easy because the AA Plasma's are isolated with not good target to shoot for the splash...

    See this wiki page for the current layouts of the HH-45's to find the ones that have more ideal AA Plasma locations ----> BOSS BASE

    You can use them to on 35 bases for oil en metal with an ops that not preduce last defenders. ;)

    OH of course you can.. if you want Resources then yes... but you will not make very much vXP on the 35's.  So if your looking to grind as a primary goal then the others are much better.

    You could use a Titan to protect the Cyclones in HH45s-send it so that the drones are in plasma's range to distract it, then send in the Cyclone(s) for the kill.

    Now I did an HH45 with 1 ETitan and 1 Cyclone and still got no VXP??

    Using the drones from the Titan as cover works great BTW!!

      I used Thorium bases to rank up my Cyclones.  I sent them in with my ETitan to help take care of the aerial units.

    HH45 - spread 4, rubi on, minimal repairs if they are lvl10+ with 550 range, you will need repairs after 10 bases or more but you also get 200 mill oil+metal, 2mill Thorium, 2000 medals (bonus not included) and the HH45 missions being done. If you put Cyclones on [F] the drones from the silos will put a good damage on them, Rubi is better so the Cyclones will destroy the Silos.

    SS40 - less vxp, less to no damage taken, but you don't get much in return - small amounts of resources, no Thorium, no medals. Still ok if you want to finish the SS40 missions with your Cyclones on Rubi.

    dont bother kixeye will only make a new air to make cyclones obsolete again like they do every other air unit instead of trying to add weapons or tech to the one we have already...
    they want to see comments on strategy well how can we find these unless given time to use these units and test them in the field more...
    we cant because they not thinking baout the game properly and the experience players have, especially for the casual gamer, not everyone sits behind a desk and plays the game for 8 hours...
    if they spread out the events more and make things upgrade longer then players may coin more...
    they going to lose players by the thousands if they dont listen to what we the players say and think....
