No introduction needed. The Soviet powerhouse is here to rip up allied bases with ease.

There aren't many things that can stand up to an onslaught from a Mammoth tank.

And nothing can stand up a group them!

The only detail of note is that the rock pods rocket warheads are high explosive. This means that they are less effective against armour, but much more effective at dealing with infantry and also pretty useful in destroying structures.
The slow rate of fire of the rocket pods means that it less effective when facing aerial threats.

If you can get a 'feel' for when a rocket pod burst is ready, it's a good idea to manually target say a group of enemy rocket squads (almost certainly killing them outright) rather than 'wasting' it on an enemy vehicle or structure.

A damaged Mammoth tank will auto repair if it is not actively engaged in combat (either dishing or receiving damage). While the recovery is pretty slow is is better than nothing, and is probably a better alternative to retreating all the way back to your war factory to get repaired.
