Jump Pack

Jump packs enable a jump enabled infantry group to clear difficult terrain or gain a situational advantage by moving to a different elevation. Firing jump packs will push your infantry into the air vertically. Horizontal thrust is controlled by the throttle to a maximum speed based on the number of operational jump jets on your pack. Jump jets can be fired continuously but a 60 meter above ground level (AGL) limit has been imposed to limit the damage from falling.
J Fire jump pack (hold)

Mounting Vehicles

Certain vehicles can transport infantry units. The available space and tonnage will determine if a specific unit is able to be transported. To mount a vehicle, simply run into it while it is stopped. The vehicle must be a friendly unit and it must have space available as well as be able to carry the weight of your unit. To dismount from a vehicle, the vehicle must also be stopped.
