This entry is about the Units that you can choose from to create your army.
Its not these: https://www.teamliquid.net/blogs/534100-how-to-fix-zerg-using-word-diarrhea (ninazerg)
The list below contains examples of units from various factions. Not all factions can pick from all of these Units, and not all Units are listed.
Vehicles are chassis, you have to add guns and equipment to them, so the role of the vehicle is variable. For example the role of the Light Tank can vary widely from an APC to Artillery.

Lets talk about Transporting stuff:
The Size 7 Skimmer can carry 6 troops.
The Size 8 Light Tank can carry 12 troops.
The Size 9 Multirole Helicopter can carry 24 troops.
The Size 10 Large Tank can carry 48 troops.
Lets talk about how much space things take up when being transported:
6 troops = 4 Hexo = 2 Smallest Mech = 1 Size 7 Mech (excluding Heavy Mech)
1 Size 7 Heavy Mech (Vulcan) = 12 troops or 2 Size 7 Light or Medium Mechs
1 Light Tank = 24 troops or 2 Vulcans
1 Main Battle Tank = 48 troops or 2 Light Tanks
1 Large Tank = 96 troops or 2 Main Battle Tanks
Lets quickly look at basing Units for tabletop gaming:
6 troops = 2x1 tiles
4 Hexo = 2x1 tiles
4 Quadbikes = 2x1 tiles
2 Smallest Mechs = 2x1 tiles
2 Mounted Cavalry = 2x1 tiles
1 Size 7 Mech = 2x2 tiles
Light Tank = 3x2 tiles
Main Battle Tank = 3x3 tiles
Large Tank = 4x4 tiles
Very Large Tank = 5x5 tiles
Archon = 6x6 tiles
