In campaign 3, most of the levels are beatable in around 20 minutes with tiger assault gun hovers (provided they have enough experience). On the last mission, you would obviously like to switch to something more modern like railguns or scourges.

track or hover? There is no utlimate answer to that. hover are faster, tracks are tougher. If you can hope reuniting all your tracks on the front line at once, then it's obviously track ftw. But most of the time, there is more then one path to defend/attack and hover are faster to move from one place to another in group without opening your defense. If the enemy hover can go around your track and hit your base, then hover is the obvious winner.

retribution or tiger?
I'm not sure in campaign, but in multiplay balance the only weapon that really work with a light body is the single mg. Some fit not bad on a medium body, but they all fit well on an heavy body. So i'd say that tiger > retribution. But not that much. 5-10% ?

the single machinegun is the machine gun that is not "twin", the first weapon of the game.

It fit well on lighter bodies because it have more hp/$ then the bodies themselve. This mean that if you could, you would build it on no body at all. Just using it own HP. Sadly it's the only weapon in the game that really have that particularity. Some weapon have enough HP to be decent on light bodies but not more. If you have a choice, you'll take medium bodies for them.

No it's not better, but it's the only one that valorise the light bodies stats correctly.

Missiles have very low hp. This is obviously a call to a heavy body.

For the propulsion, since the missiles have a long recharge time, it is suited for an hit and run strategy. so Hover is an option
On the other hand... since you are on a heavy body, you can get a serious boost in HP for a couple of bucks... so also Tracks is an option.
Finaly, if you enemy is slow enough, you might achieve both with half-tracks.

1. TAC is pretty average, Plasma cannon is one of the worst weapons around nowadays.
2. There is no best weapon, it depends heavily on the game situation, that is, on what your opponent uses and how many upgrades you researched so far.
