The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) is one of the new nations featured in Wargame: Red Dragon. It is comprised of both the Australian as well as the New Zealand military.

DescriptionEdit

The “Bad Boys of the Empire” no longer need prove their status as elite troops in the field of infantry combat. Specialists in counter-insurgency, they track, locate and destroy enemy infantry in melee combat, or use a plethora of anti-personnel devices from napalm to a range of modified vehicles to lend the infantry more firepower. ANZAC's unique ASLAV infantry transport is fast and has amphibious capability. Their vehicle and recon categories include a variety of effective anti-tank, fire support, and reconnaissance units.

ANZAC's SASR special forces do not feature any exotic weaponry and as a result can find themselves outgunned by REDFOR special forces units such as the Spetznaz or Li Jian, but will easily handle enemy line infantry. ANZAC recon special forces infantry, the NZSAS, use silenced submachine guns that are effective at keeping their position concealed and can provide invaluable intel from hidden positions behind enemy lines.

Unfortunately, the ANZAC's expertise in jungle warfare has resulted in a marked weakness in anti-tank combat and armoured capacity. ANZAC's tank selections are limited to medium and light tanks. The Leopard AS1+, a copy of the now-outdated German Leopard medium tank, is the ANZAC's heaviest tank, with the Leopard AS1 and British-made Scorpion Light Tank being its other most effective tanks.

ANZAC is also limited in selections for the Support category, having access only to British-made Rapier SAM launchers, medium-grade tube artillery and mortars, but lacking self-propelled anti-aircraft guns (SPAAGs).

ANZAC's aerial arm, though small, features good capabilities especially in the strike role. The Australian F-111C is one of only three BLUFOR aircraft to carry the devastating Mk. 84 1000kg bomb, and the type carries eight (now nerfed to four) such bombs for (still) extraordinary powerful strikes. The multi-role F/A-18A Hornet provides another strong strike option, equipped with the Mk. 83 500kg bomb as well as AIM-9L Sidewinder missiles. Anti-tank and spot removal capability can be found in the A-4K and A-4K Kahu, equipped with accurate and powerful Maverick missiles, while area denial and light strike capabilities can be found in the Mirage, Strikemaster and MB-339 aircraft. The F-111G is an ANZAC anti-ship aircraft which carries four AGM-84 Harpoon missiles. The major drawbacks of the ANZAC aerial arm are its lack of SEAD aircraft, and mid-range air superiority fighters (F-4E and Mirage IIIO(F)) which can provide some protection to the strike platforms, but which are at a distinct disadvantage against the higher-cost REDFOR fighters like the Su-27 and MiG-29 series.
