- Assault Troop Crawler

The Assault Troop Transport (or 'Assault Troop Crawler') is a second-generation Troop Crawler developed for General Shin Fai.

Background

Assault Troop Crawler here.
- Assault Troop Crawler

Like the regular Troop Crawler, it is a reasonably fast wheeled APC, already coming with eight Mini-Gunners on board upon rolling out of the War Factory, with stealth detection. It has firing ports for the infantrymen inside, superior armor and a small propaganda tower to heal other friendlies.

Upgrades

Gen1 Subliminal Messaging Icons Subliminal messaging Increases the effectiveness of the Assault troop crawler's speaker tower by 25%. Purchasable at any Propaganda Center center for a cost of $500.

Strategy

Get your guns ready!
- Assault Troop Crawler

Although more expensive than its predecessor, the cost of the Assault Troop Transport covers the expense of the eight Mini-Gunners (as well as saving $400) and it is much better equipped for battle. If some of the Mini-Gunners were replaced by Tank Hunters the Assault Troop Transport would be well-equipped to take on all comers.

Hijackers, in particular, are useless if they try to steal these vehicles as they are not able to stay hidden, let alone get close.

Counters

The Assault Troop Crawler has better armor than the regular Troop Crawler but is still quite poorly defended against heavy weapons, especially rockets.

A Nuke Cannon firing Neutron Shells can wipe out ALL of the Mini-Gunners inside as well as the driver, allowing capture of the vehicle. Jarmen Kell as well can eliminate the vehicle crew and later kill the Mini-Gunners.

Assessment

Pros

  • An upgraded version of Troop Crawler
  • Quite fast
  • Passengers can fire out through the fire-ports
  • Heals nearby friendly units and increases their firing speed
  • Probably superior than Humvee in many ways
  • Passenger can escape upon destruction

Cons

  • More expensive than standard Troop Crawler
  • Useless if unloaded
  • Truly nightmare if captured by USA (especially when garrisoned by Pathfinders)
  • Vulnerable against artillery
  • Vulnerable against heavy weapons
  • Vulnerable especially to Stealth Fighters and Stealth Comanches
  • Healing ability only works when closest at least 1 unit nearby
  • Changing passengers is quite expensive
