TD Harvester Icons

The harvester is the primary resourcing vehicle in Tiberian Dawn and its first-person/third-person offshoot, Renegade.

Background

The Brotherhood of Nod developed these vehicles after the Tiberium meteor impacted Earth and, revealing itself as a global superpower, instituted new harvesting methods, quickly reaching a staggering 49% stake of the global Tiberium mining market, almost double the size of GDI sponsor countries.

The vehicle is quite simple in its construction - a large storage container is mounted to the back of an all terrain truck platform with an isolated driver's cabin. Two large arms below the front rip crystals out of the pods they grow in and move them into an opening leading into the container. When full, the container was sealed and deliver to a Tiberium Refinery, where it is unloaded and the harvested Tiberium processed.

Variations

Main article: Harvester (Renegade)

In Command and Conquer: Renegade, a transitionary model between the Tiberian Dawn and Tiberian Sun harvesters is portrayed, a sturdy, utilitarian truck.

Legacy

These units were succeeded by the second generation of harvesters during the Second Tiberium War.

In-game

The harvester is a heavy duty workhorse. While completely defenseless, it can withstand a lot of damage and safely return to base even under fire. The AI is programmed to respond with extreme hostility if its harvesters are tampered with.

Development

The original design of the vehicle was substantially different, with two "vacuum cleaners" and a chassis that was later reused for the flame tank

Assessment

Pros

  • Collects tiberium
  • Very heavy armour.
  • Can crush infantry and bike.
  • Able to self-repair their health back up to 50%.

Cons

  • Very slow movement
  • Unarmed, has no offensive weapon
  • Prior target to aircraft.
  • Vulnerable to anti-vehicles units
  • Single minded AI (find the nearest tiberium); this can be very frustrating.
  • Sometimes mysteriously stalls
