Notes

CNCKW Heavy Harvester Cameo

The Heavy harvester is a special variation of the GDI harvester used by the Steel Talons branch prior to and during the Third Tiberium War.

Background

With the sudden evolution of Tiberium and change of its properties, the Steel Talons division was charged to quickly develop an alternative to avoid an economic crash. The solution was to change the drive system to treads, which contained no organic components for the Tiberium to assimilate. Also, they were bulkier than their predecessors, being outfitted with mechanical arms that picked the evolved crystals.

The compartment feature was removed, and now the harvested Tiberium was packed into large tubes, which could then be quickly retrieved by a crane at the refinery and dropped into the melter. To safeguard these vehicles in a hostile world, the Steel Talons branch mounted an infantry bunker instead of a machine gun.

Abilities

CNCTW Evacuate Cameo
Evacuate Evacuate orders the infantry unit stationed inside the vehicle to immediately exit the Harvester (Ctrl+S).

In-game unit

A harvester comes free of charge with every new refinery. It automatically starts searching for available Tiberium fields and collecting crystals before returning back to the refinery to have them processed. When lost, War Factories and Reclamator Hubs can build a new replacement.

Heavy harvesters have no self-defense on their own. Their only defense is the bunker located behind the cabin. One distinct advantage, when compared to their GDI and ZOCOM counterparts, was their garrison ability, allowing the owner to immediately change the defense of their harvesters by garrisoning various infantry, allowing adaptive protection.
