|Armoured Personnel Carrier|
M-60 machine gun
The APC visually resembles the American M113 Armored Personnel Carrier. Its primary role is the transportation of infantry to and from the battlefield. It is often used to transport infantry throught dangerous areas, such as Tiberium fields, or to move infantry quickly to areas where they are needed.
The armour and speed of the APC also make it a viable alternative to the Humvee. The APC is equipped with the same M60 machine gun as the Humvee, can move at a comparable speed and is capable of taking an increased level of punishment. As such APCs are largely fielded where the battlefield situation demands greater levels of protection, but require a vehicle that fulfills a similar, light support/reconnaissance role to that of the Humvee.

Armored personnel carrier (Tiberian Dawn) is a stub and needs your help. You can help by expanding it.

Due to the front mounting of the M60 machine gun, the APC needs to turn to train the gun on targets and as such cannot fire on the move. The combination of the M60 and the APCs good armour make it an effective unit to bring to bear against enemy infantry. Further, the unit's speed make it a viable choice for reconaissance. Due to it's armor and weight, APC can "accidentally" run down opposing infantry. Friendly infantries, coordinated with central command and APC driver indirectly, can evade these "accidents".
APC is preferred choice and gave GDI advantage to do engineer capturing strikes as the vehicle can transport up to five engineers quickly. Sometimes the Obelisk of Nod laser beam may not kill APC in one shot. Should the APC be destroyed all mounted infantry and crew are instantly killed. Nod in some missions may acquire the vehicle, mostly in covert or false flag operation.
