The Merl is a level 2 vehicle that launches heavy rockets; the rockets that this unit fires do a significant amount of damage to enemy units if they hit and their range allows for attacking behind the front line, but the long reload time of these rockets prevent the Merl from being overpowered.

Merl's rockets do the same damage as those of the Missile Frigate / Ranger, but are fired at a slower rate.

Given a radar or visual support, the Merl can outrange missle turrets (Defender or Pulverizer).

Its CORE counterpart is the Diplomat.
