|For more uses, see Humvee.|
Humvees are fully enclosed units with reinforced windows and a powerful engine, armed with a roof mounted 7.62 mm M-60 machine gun. They were widely used by GDI forces to both support infantry squads in combat and perform reconnaissance of enemy positions.
Whilst performing well against infantry and other light vehicles such as the Nod Buggy, the Humvee's armour is insufficient to withstand prolonged attack from heavy weapons such as tank shells or rockets. This limits the overall combat effectiveness of the Humvee and limits its role to that of a scout or infantry support unit.
The basic Humvees were phased out as newer models were created towards the end of the First Tiberium War (such as the the Mark II), with improvements like the machine gun placed on a remote weapons station.
During the Second Tiberium War the Humvee's reconnaissance and light support/anti-infantry role had been taken on by Wolverine walkers, whilst new Pitbull ATVs fulfilled the Humvee's non-combat roles during the Third Tiberium War.
Nevertheless, due to their simplicity to operate and general effectiveness, a number of these vehicles could be seen being used as late as after the Third Tiberium War. However by then, it was not really a military vehicle so much as civilian/Forgotten transportation.
Prepping blueprints for expansion...
Humvee (Tiberian Dawn) is a stub and needs your help. You can help by expanding it.
