i want to know which is better(as well for attacking as defending) the humvee or the hercules?

a few stats:
*******| speed | health | Range | Damage | Space |building time
Humvee | 1.2--- | 1000- | 258---| 160---- | 60----| 20m
Herc | 1---- | 2000- | 260--- | 251---- | 80----| 1h25m

seems to me the hercules is better in damage and health, even if considered the 3:4 space ratio, but making humvees costs less time to build. another advantage of the Hercules is him being an infantry unit, which makes it harder to destroy by most tanks. Unlocking the herc, nevertheless, costs a lot of time and resources...
is it worth it?

    both are poor, if you have the moneythen unlock the hercs, however they do not stand any chance if taken out by tanks,

    both of them are weak at lower levels as you level them up they get better. but hercs can easily be taken out by tanks.

    read the 2nd paragraph. :)

    I think i posted this before, next time please search before posting. But nevermind, i can answer this.

    In fact, these two anti air units are poor vs heavy tanks and non-winged drones like copters and cobras . If copters/cobras come in bunches, humees/herc must have turrets to cover them. So put them stand ground near towers.

    Humvees are for lower lv
    - they are faster to upgrade (always not more than one day for a lv.)
    - long range ( max 310 - can elimate all winged drones quite easily [wingdrones, thunderbolts, raptors] ; can also aim copter drones (max range 290) and low lvs cobras)
    - Upgrade them to highest lv for better health, range, damage

    Hercs are designed to shoot down air units
    - so they must be better (in health, range, damage)
    - they have very short range in lower lvs, so after u unocked them, use combination of hercs + humvees.
    - Untill you have upgraded them to the highest lv, and that's time to send humvees into junkyard.

    Hope this helps.:)

    thank you, then i'll be unlocking herc's for the next five days :P (still until medics unlocked, 'cause tanks had higher priority, but now i have a lot of resources, so i can do both....)

    Hercs are better, more health, more DPS, longer range when maxed, better anti-infantry, tank, air AND building.
