Viking

Viking is a starcraft-2 terran unit
The Viking is a new unit for the Terran army in StarCraft 2. The Viking is a very versatile unit as it can be an air to air unit or it can transform into an air to ground unit. The Viking also has a range of 9 in its air to air form and is very effective at dealing with your opponents' air units from long range. Parking some ground to air units below the viking while it harasses is extremely effective as well as that will inhibit the opponent from moving in to kill your Vikings while they attack from range. Lastly, with the Vikings transformation to a ground unit it can be very effective at harassing enemy bases from ledges or for dropping in an enemies base, ignoring the defensive line they may have. Check out the videos and strategies on the right for more info. The Viking is a Air Combat and Ground Support and has a unit type of Armored - Mechanical.
