Do infantry units come in squads like in BfME?
Yes (this is a new feature for C&C). One squad of rocket soldiers in C&C 3 is the same as one single rocket soldier in Tiberian Dawn or Tiberian Sun, in terms of cost and effectiveness. The squads system just means that there are more visual guys on-screen, not less physical units under your control. Squads are smaller than in BFME and more “elite” squads come in smaller denominations. For example, the sniper squad just has two guys: the sniper, and his spotter. Infantry in squads have their own hitpoints and squads don’t have BFME-style “leaders” (the guys with the flag).
