I'll test it.

Currently, I have 11563 infantry built, and 720 mechs. (Incidentally, my #2 are tanks, at 2746; #3 are Neotanks, at 1822.)

Now, let me put together a design map to test this...

Okay, Sensei with a bunch of towers and one city, a large number of bombers, against a bunch of Oozium.

Destroy some Oozium, charge powers, use each once, finish the map...

...and, still at 11563 infantry, 720 mechs.

So the answer is no, they don't count.

I sometimes look like I'm losing, but I'm not. I also will hold an army prisoner just for fun.
I'm good in FoW, and with Direct fire units.
Most used CO's are Hannah and Bittman.

I find it odd that aside from CO stats we also seem to build up are own stats.

DoR, but whatever. In terms of net worth:

Artillery: 7872 ($47 232 000)
Infantry: 15460 ($23 190 000)
Tank: 2123 ($14 861 000)
Bike: 5388 ($13 470 000)
Mech: 5022 ($12 555 000)
Rockets: 772 ($11 580 000)
Md tank: 715 ($8 580 000)
Bomber: 374 ($7 480 000)

I spent more than double the cash on artillery than infantry. YAY.

Infantry are kind of a given. You need them for capturing, and they're the cheapest unit.
But next to infantry, I think my most built are tanks, then Neotanks. I guess I don't use mechs too often.

i think i made it to the 3rd or 4th map on brutal using all tanks and Andy

but then my L button broke
and that's really convenient when you're counting on your CO powers :(

and just after two months, my numbers have doubled:

#1 Infantry 14175
#2 Recon 6786
#3 Tank 1952
#4 Mech 1624
#5 APC 1127
#6 T-Copter 778
#7 B-Copter 703
#8 Black Boat 633
#9 Artillery 535
#10 Neo Tank 502
#11 Rockets 433
#12 Anti Air 263
everything else is under 200

to get the highest scores you pratically use only two units, Infantry (to HQ cap) and Recons (to charge Sami's SCOP fast) Mech and Tanks are built for Power

won by rout 717, won by HQ capture 638 rout is still on top, strangely

total playtime: 354 hours

and completed Combat on every difficulty; i still have only 240/300 medals and haven't finished HC yet! lol

I'll tell u wat i dont use. Stealth bombers, black bombs, and carriers. Carriers kinda suck in my opinion, stealth bombs die of fuel loss, but black bombs are good, i just dont use em much i guess.

I hardly ever built infantries....

I don't often play AWDS, but in speculation, my most used unit in AW2 is the Neotank, second is MD tank/Bomber, and third is rockets. And yes, I mass high tech units, usually due to how good they counter low tech stuff.
