Pilot is a generic term for anyone operating a vehicle. However when most American commanders refer to a 'Pilot', they are referring to Pilots who had survived the destruction of US vehicles.

Background

I have experience!
- Pilot

The US Military still has the finest pilots and combat training regimes in the world and these men are no exception. Their experience against GLA proved invaluable in the war. Able to escape from decimated vehicles and aircraft, they could return to thier base and relay intel, give experience advice to other pilots and vehicle crews, and each one was more than willing to return to the fight, providing some demoralisation against the GLA.

US vehicles have titanium-plated cockpits and US aircraft equipped their pilots with ejection seats, as well as parachutes and basic survival kits, giving them a good chance of survival. Since Pilots able to survive such destruction were highly skilled, they were deemed a valuable asset. If they could be escorted to another vehicle, they could show its crew what they had learned on the battlefield, making them more efficient. They can not be trained from a barracks.

Upgrades

Anything to drive?
- Pilot
ZH Chemical Suits Icons Chemical Suits Upgrade makes the Pilots more resistant to toxins and radiations, which means that they can survive longer. This gives them a higher chance of reaching a vehicle. Purchasable at any Strategy Center in Zero Hour for $1000
Gen1 Advanced Training Icons Advanced Training Allows the vehicles to gain veteran status twice as fast. Purchasable at any Strategy Center for $1500

Important Note: These upgrades apply to the pilot only in the patched versions of the game.

Counters

Sure beats walking!
- Pilot

Being unarmed and poorly armoured, any attack likely kills them, in spite of the fact that they are fast runners. Quad cannons, Humvee and gatling tanks can easily chase down and slaughter pilots before they get a chance of entering another vehicle, or even kill them while they are still in the air. Killing an enemy pilot is a smart move, as he can transfer his veterancy to his next vehicle. When a Dragon tank or Toxin tractor destroys a veteran American vehicle, the pilot also gets killed.
