The Gunboat is a light GDI warship, appearing in Tiberian Dawn and Renegade. Armed with surface-to-surface Tomahawk missiles, Gunboats were the backbone of GDI’s naval forces during the First Tiberium War.

BackgroundEdit

Gunboats were used to provide fire support to GDI ground forces operating close to shore. This does, however, put them in range of hostile fire from shore defences, engaging frequently with Nod Turrets and Obelisk of Light laser towers to a lesser extent.

In-gameEdit

Gunboats are not directly buildable in Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn. They only appear in campaign missions as fire support for GDI. This is the case regardless what side the player is on. A Nod player can be attacked by them while a GDI player can usually give them fire orders, but not movement orders.

TriviaEdit

If the games data files are modified so gunboats may be built, the ships will appear at the production structure then move left and right horizontally from one map edge to the other. Terrain does not affect gunboat movement; normally impassable terrain does not block their movement.
