Mechanic is a Creon unit in The Iron Plague, expansion pack of the real-time strategy franchise, Total Annihilation: Kingdoms.


From the handbook (Page 13):

Built by Smithy
Mobile unit - Combat - Weapons: Taser & Freeze Beam.

The Mechanic is a useful unit to have on hand. Besides their well-known skills at repair and construction, a Mechanic is also a capable soldier.


  • It is odd that the Mechanic is considered a "combat" unit in the handbook, considering that it's primary purpose is construction.
  • Mechanics have two types of ranged attacks. The first one is a lightening bolt able to attack every type of unit (flying, ground, naval), the second one is a freezing ray which can strike and permanently freeze some types of units. The lightening bolt recharges fast but the freezing ray needs time to recharge and to be used again.
