- Supply Truck reporting for duty

Supply Trucks were the supply collectors for the Chinese army.

Background

We are pretty busy here.
- Supply Truck

Moving back and forth from supply docks or piles to the nearest Supply Center, Supply Trucks could collect a large quantity of supplies per run (up to $300/per run). Supply Trucks are cheap and can be quickly assembled in a Chinese supply Center. However, they are unarmed and lightly armored to keep costs down and to meet the minimum standard for having civilians as drivers. Also, unlike other supply collectors, once all the supplies on the battle field has been collected, they will have no further use to the commander.

Counters

We cannot afford to go around.
- Supply Truck

Entirely unarmed, Supply Trucks had to be kept safely away from harm and protected at all times. Being a non-combat unit, the Supply Truck was quite lightly armoured and vulnerable to almost any enemy units, especially tanks and aircraft.

However, being vehicles, they are unexpectedly useful against raiding assault infantry, who they can just run over if they do not move. Useful in particular against the General power Rebel Ambush, unless they have been wired by General Juhziz.

Trivia

  • There also was an alternate model for the Chinese supply truck. Instead of being one piece, it's a truck with a trailer. This was used for the old supply collecting logic, but the developers preferred the other truck, so this one went unused. This model was used by General Kwai in the Shockwave mod.
  • If one looks closely, the Supply Truck tends to have more supplies than the Chinook because it only carries one crate. However the Chinook still surpasses the Supply Truck.
