FS Elite Cadre Icons

The Elite cadre are powerful Nod infantry units that replaced the cyborgs at the end of the Firestorm Crisis.

Background

They are members of the Black Hand who, due to their value and small numbers, were usually stationed as guards or commanders in facilities behind Nod lines. The Elite Cadre wear similar body armour to Nod light infantry, except that the weapon they use is far more powerful than that of standard light infantry, and similar to that used by a cyborg. Elite Cadre armour is also heavier than that of the standard light infantry. Therefore, they filled in the role of heavy assault troopers in Nod's forces.

History

In preparation for its attack on CABAL's core, Nod realised that it needed a unit to replace the cyborg, as they were under CABAL's control after he had risen up against them. To counter this, Nod mobilised its last line of defense, the elite detachments of Nod infantry.

The Elite cadre was replaced by the Black Hand squads and Shadow Teams by the Third Tiberium War.

In-game unit

Unfortunately, they are still no match for a cyborg. In particular, they were unable to match the cyborg's considerably heavier armour, and cannot heal in Tiberium. As the Brotherhood does not train combat medics like GDI to heal its forces on the frontline, this is a significant drawback.

As an advantage, they are somewhat cheaper to train and recruit than hi-tech cyborgs, at less than half the price.
