- Chinook, proud to serve Uncle Sam

The Chinook is mostly used to transport units, with eight transport slots. Vehicles cost 3 slots, infantry 1, and contruction dozers cost 5 transport slots. A Chinook loaded with Rangers can be ordered to combat-drop them into a building garrisoned by the enemy, clearing it out.


Have fun, boys!

Keep the supplies rollin'.
- Chinook

The Chinook is the main USA air transport unit, and is capable of transporting up to 8 infantry units or one or two vehicles. It is also the USA's supply gatherer, capable of loading up $600 worth of supplies in one go.

As a special ability, Rangers can exit the Chinook via four ropes without the Chinook needing to land. Rangers can rappel themselves directly into civilian structures to garrison them. If the structure they rappel into is already garrisoned by enemies, the Rangers will simply take it over by eliminating the enemies inside it.

Even though there is no supply drop off pad, a Chinook can unload at any allied supply center.



  • Quite durable
  • Very fast
  • Can travel directly over any terrain to reach supplies
  • Carries the most supplies out of all supply-gathering units, at $600 per load
  • Versatile as it can be reuse as a transport for infantry and vehicle, even can be used for building infiltration.


  • Unarmed
  • Highly vulnerable to anti-aircraft units
  • Like almost all aircraft, will be instantly destroyed by EMP blasts
  • Slowest resource gathering rate
  • Expensive, at $1200, and has a high profile due to being an air unit unlike the Chinese Supply Truck or GLA Worker, both of which require the enemy to get closer to a supply station to notice
  • When shot down, all of its cargo will be lost as well (infantry are heard burning to their deaths)
  • Cannot carry cargo and supply and the same time
