Dawn of Fantasy seems like a combination of the two; battalions of soldiers, yet still resource gathering and building construction.
It would be a hypothetical Real Time Operational (RTO).
I think you have tactics and strategy backwards,
tactics:the branch of military science dealing with detailed maneuvers to achieve objectives set by strategy
strategy: the branch of military science dealing with military command and the planning and conduct of a war
Strategy is more large-scale and would be more like build orders and gathering resources as well as placing buildings and moving large groups of units. Tactics, though, are more small maneuvers that you use in the middle of battle to gain the upper hand.
