Gen1 Bomb Truck Icons

Bomb trucks were GLA suicide vehicles used during the War against the GLA.

Background

Old dilapidated dumpers, uparmoured by GLA and loaded to the brim with explosives. When attacking, they drove into the enemy and detonated their weapons on impact. These trucks were by default loaded with a mixed array of improvised explosives, and could be refitted with more potent explosives or even Anthrax-based weaponry.

In-game

Bomb trucks are surprisingly resilient, but although they can be used to directly take on enemy units, they are most effective when they manage to take the enemy by surprise. Their ability to disguise as a different vehicle helps greatly in this. However, the GPS Scrambler does not affect the bomb truck.

Bomb trucks have no conventional weaponry, and are not best driven into heavy enemy fire. If they move too close to anti-stealth units, their disguise will also be seen through. Also, they are rather expensive for a one-shot suicide unit.

If disguised as a civilian vehicle, it will appear to enemies as a white dot on the minimap, just like other civilian vehicles and buildings. Against a human opponent, however, a disguised bomb truck is pretty easy to discover, since they retain their original speed and maneuverability. Strangely, the bomb truck can be disguised as drones such as the Spy Drone and the Battle Drone.

Trivia

Gen1 Bomb Truck Loadout

Bomb truck loadout textures

  • Originally, the truck was supposed to have a third upgrade available: a combination of TNT and a biological weapon. While it was cut, the texture files for it are still present in the game. This was added in Zero Hour.
  • The words "U Die" can be seen on the bomb truck with the bio-bomb upgrade.
  • Due to a modelling mistake, the bomb bruck's driver can be seen on both sides.
  • In the mod Rise of the Reds, using the bio-bomb will create a wreckage of the bomb truck that will leak Anthrax.
  • In May 2016, the Russian Embassy in the United Kingdom made a Twitter post regarding extremists in Syria receiving chemical weapons. The post included the image of GLA bomb trucks from the Command & Conquer Wiki in the infobox shown above. Although the image was marked with the text "Image for illustration purposes only", the post was ridiculed.[1]
