The Rocket Pod boasts the longest attack range of any robot in the game. Naturally, this makes it the perfect choice for attacking Light Rail Guns without incurring any losses. Their rockets are also pretty good against enemy Transports.
Unfortunately, the Rocket Pod has one crippling weakness. It happens to be one of the slowest units in the game - the only two that are slower are the lowly Mining Droid and the massive Hunter. This leads to problems such as being slow to reach their targets, and, when combined with their unimpressive durability, makes them easily destroyed once within range. A good commander keeps their Rocket Pods well defended.
As a note, the Rocket Pod fires in a very high arc, meaning its rockets hit with a considerable delay. They will still deal damage no matter what, but the attack does not do immediate damage. This should be kept in mind when using them against fast-moving units.
