It is the future. The world is now ruled by the oppressive dictator, Herzog Eins. You are Ludwig, a high- ranking general who remembers the way it once was; the freedom of the lost Republic. Secretly, you gather an armed force and begin preparations for a tremendous revolt which will restore peace and harmony to earth...hopefully forever.
These are the most important things to keep in mind once the battle is under way: Start off by quickly placing a few low level forces around your base should the enemy be crazy enough to launch an immediate offensive.
Once done, scan the radar and begin taking over the closest two neutral bases. This is the MOST important strategy early on. Remember: you get money to build forces by increasing your sphere of influence. This can only be done by taking over bases. Once a base is occupied, quickly bring in one or two stationary cannons and SAM-42 tanks. This will thwart most types of enemy attacks.
ALWAYS place a supply of trucks with re-supply orders at all occupied bases. This is also critical since once a unit runs out of power, it is useless and vulnerable until a supply truck arrives. Should the enemy occupy a base fairly close to yours, send in a unit to attack and occupy. Sending in only one unit will be enough to turn the base back to neutral since the enemy must occupy all four sections of a base to benefit from it.
Try to fly only when necessary as it uses a considerable amount of energy. Instead, walk when necessary as an infantry unit and attack enemy outposts. This strategy will allow you to save your energy.
Once you've occupied at least two bases and have accumulated around $10,000, it's time to head for the enemies base. Start by building some heavy duty units such as TAX-52's or GMA-34A's and fly them towards the enemy base. Do not attempt this without having two or more bases along the way where the air-transport can refuel. You will not be able to fly straight to the enemy base without a pitstop or two. Once there, drop the unit with "attack base" orders, turn into the jet, and let a few bounds go (enemy permitting) before heading back to get the next unit.
TIP: In rounds A, B and C earn quick victories over the computer by attacking his base from the start. Don't waste your time trying to build up your bases. The only exception is the Abgrund Area. You'll need to set up only one base; it's best to set up as close as possible to the computers.
TIP: After you drop your weapon, and have placed your order, you may want to get yourself killed. This enables you to get back to your base quicker, and your order will usually be filled by the time you are powered back up.
The final piece of advice in Herzog Zwei is to never stop thinking ahead. As you transport a unit, think about what is needed next and begin construction on it the second you drop the other unit. If a unit isn't performing at a location, relocate to another location where it is needed. Remember, you can't win a great battle without a great plan!
