Experimental troop transport
The Ironside was a large experimental aircraft created by GDI. Intended to be a troop transport, it was essentially a flying wing, much like 20th century American B-2 Spirit bombers. A prototype was being field tested in Blue Zone 8 (Chile), in the same sector as Dr. Alphonse Giraud was located.
- The aircraft is likely named for actor Michael Ironside, who played the role of General Jack Granger in Tiberium Wars.
- The aircraft also shares similarities with the Ironside transport shown in the cancelled TIBERIUM game for carrying light vehicles and infantry
- The Ironside looks similar to the Vertigo bombers in Tiberian Twilight.
