The Paladin is a GDI Support class aircraft used during the Ascension Conflict.

Description

The Paladin is armed with laser weaponry, which is perfect for destroying heavy targets, such as Crawler and most defense structures. In addition to its main weapon, it is also equipped with point defense lasers, capable of intercepting enemy missiles. However, it cannot attack when its point defense lasers are active.

The Paladin is the only laser-armed aircraft available to the GDI Support Class before the Thunderhead is unlocked. It is unlocked at Level 6 and requires the Commander to have researched the Tier 2 Crawler upgrade.

Paladins are armed with laser cannons that are highly effective against heavy units, but nearly useless against light vehicles and infantry.

The Paladin sports Medium Aircraft-type armour that is vulnerable to rockets but reasonably resistant to most other attacks. As aircraft, Paladins cannot be targeted by Cannon attacks, making them extremely effective against Avatars.

Paladins are relatively fast, though not as fast as Nod's aircraft. They are significantly tougher, however.

The Paladin's special ability is to toggle between anti-rocket mode and normal mode. In the anti-rocket mode, the Paladin's main weapon is disabled, but it can now shoot down enemy rockets (similar to the Point defense lasers in the General's universe), allowing them to protect friendly units that are under fire from missile/rocket-armed units, especially Stealth Tanks. They can still be overwhelmed if there are too many rockets.

There is no equivalent of the Paladin in the Nod arsenal. Their Nod analogue is the Tyrant. An achievement can be earned if the player uses the paladins laser to shoot down several rockets.
