StarCraft® II

In the aftermath of the Brood War, weapon technicians proposed a radical new concept to resolve the critical weaknesses in Terran anti-air capabilities. Based on technologies used in the Siege Tank, the Viking was designed to be the ultimate anti-air and ground-support weapon system. With the ability to change from an assault walker to an air-superiority fighter, the Viking can fulfill different tactical needs in a developing battle. However, finding pilots who excel in both modes has proven difficult. Those who survive the adaptation become the ultimate Terran aces.

Flight Manual

  • Slow-moving armored craft that can transform to attack air or ground targets.
  • Switch to Assault Mode to land in unguarded bases, eliminate key structures or personnel, and then take off.
  • Scour the field in Fighter Mode to hunt down Overlords, Colossi, and enemy air units.
  • If you have air superiority, switch to Assault Mode and support your ground troops with extra firepower.
  • The transformation between Fighter Mode and Assault Mode takes around 3 seconds. It is not advised to activate it under heavy anti-aircraft fire.

Countermeasures

Terran VS
  • Build Missile Turrets in key points around your base. If the enemy decides to switch to Assault Mode, engage with Marauders and Siege Tanks.
  • Use Ravens to deploy Auto-Turrets. Use Point Defense Drones if you are bringing your own Vikings to bear.
  • Marines with Stimpacks are good to take down Vikings in Fighter Mode and decent against Vikings in Assault Mode if they have Medivac support.
Zerg VS
  • Use the Queen in tandem with a few well placed Spore Crawlers. Be sure to keep your Overlords covered by your defensive structures or anti-air units.
  • Spawn Hydralisks and research Grooved Spines. As always, be sure to focus fire.
  • If the Vikings transform to Assault Mode, surround them with Zerglings or Roaches.
Protoss VS
  • Cover your mineral line with a few Photon Cannons.
  • Get Stalkers and research Blink. Vikings fly slowly, so you can potentially wipe them out with a well placed Blink and focus fire.
  • Cast Psionic Storm or attack with a few Archons.
