Land Air Sea Warfare strategies

A lot of poeple think that LASW is the best rts ever on iphone.
And i love it too.
But there is no thread about LASW strategy,so i created this one
So please,tell us your best strategy

I begin:
-Don't only look at the DPS,other stats,like the price,the time to create,the armor and the speed are really important too.
-Alwais add shield around special mine,with some defence.
-When you attack a base,kill shields and defence first.
-You can use boat on the land,just create the boat creater(i forgot how to say in english sorry)in a place where there is water on the land(it's quite rare).
-Healthy Tank are useless expept for healing mega unit.

My strategy I used to beat 3 Robotic AIs in a FFA was to quickly spam power at the beginning and to get to Tech 3 as fast as possible. Once at T3 build tons of air (apache, black widow if you can afford) with 3-4 air factories and then rush the closest AI with your air. If done fast enough (before 10-15 min mark) that AI will be down quickly.
With one down you can slow it down a bit, build more power, base defenses, naval units, land units etc. Try to win superiority over one area (air, land, sea) of war (i prefer air because of how quick and devastating air units are) and slowly take advantage of your superiority. At about the 20-30 min mark your economy should be booming and you can either go build mega units or go for ICBMs. In my game, I went straight for ICBMs and the remainder of the game was the AI getting epic nuked with my air units destroying any ICBM defenses.

My strategy is build a special mine thing, get the BIG shield, then place the mega unit turret, the long turret, and then you can build a second base, It's pretty much invincible, especially with walls and anti aircraft things

Ok so,how to kill a shield with turrents?
Juste send some apache,but don't target the shield but just near to it,because your apaches will need to be in the shield zone,when they are in the zone,kill the shield,and then send your land army for finish the work

Its really easy to win LASW, just make a bunch of defensive buildings, then create a bunch of Valkyries, Apaches, and Tech 3 ground units. Build 3 ICBMs and then wait for the enemy to waste of all their units on your defensive positions. Then launch your ICBMs on all of their main bases and mop up with your units.

It's easy to beat 1 or 2 robotic(i never beat 3).But the online mode will be fun
So this topic is not only about AI.

Everyone seems to be considering this to be the best RTS ever, and I'm actually considering it. The thing is is that I'm the worst RTS player I know of, and therefore it has to be noob friendly. I tried to get into Red Conquest!, but the game is so confusing that I didn't know what was going on. The only ones I've ever been able to even understand were Rise of Lost Empires (played the lite) and Armada. Do you think I'd be able to easily get how to play the game?

It is a bit complicated, but its not really hard to understand, the hard part for me was figuring out how to get more units and buildings, but I found out that I had to upgrade my main base. After that I find it pretty simple. Don't come in thinking it'll be really easy to master, because it isn't. I'd reccomend a thorough read through of the tutorial, which helped me a ton.

Well, if you suck, the adaptive setting and the you plus other AI vs. one AI helps a ton.

Won't work in later updates. Apache is nerfed a lot.
