Information Edit

Gyrocopters have two main purposes: to scout, and to attack air units. If someone is making a lot of air units, use Gyrocopters to attack them. Upgrade the Gyrocopter to enhance it with more damage.

Gyrocopters also act as detectors for invisible units.

Manual descriptionEdit

The ingenious dwarven engineers, taking a nod from their inventive gnomish cousins, constructed the ultimate airborne scout vehicle. The gyrocopters are small but versatile flying machines that can cover great distances at speed and evade enemy ground forces. Though the contraptions are somewhat rickety, they are armed with mounted cannons and bombs, and piloted by the daring – if not insane – dwarven pilot corps.

World Editor descriptionEdit

Fast moving flying machine. Excellent at scouting, and effective against air units. Can learn the Flying Machine Bombs and Flak Cannons upgrades.
