TD Rocket Soldier Icons

Rocket soldiers were a type of heavy infantry employed by GDI and Nod during the First Tiberium War.

Background

Rocket soldiers made up the anti-tank/air component of both Nod and GDI.

Legacy

While GDI decommissioned these units, Nod replaced them with the Rocket infantry.

In-game

Rocket Soldiers are trained at Barracks installations for GDI forces and Hand of Nod installations for the Brotherhood of Nod.

Rocket soldiers are highly effective against vehicles and buildings when in numbers. However, whilst a small group can usually hold out against enemy armour, their slow speed leaves them vulnerable to being crushed. Also, Rocket Soldiers are ineffective against other enemy infantry, and as such it is usually prudent for them to be escorted by other infantry or vehicles.

Rocket soldiers are capable of engaging both ground and air targets, and perform well in the anti-air role, allowing them to provide protection to other units that do not have anti-air capablity.

Assessment

Pros

  • Effective against vehicles, aircraft and buildings.
  • Cheap and effective anti-armour and anti-air unit, best results when massed.
  • An economic and useful support unit for units lacking anti-air capabilities

Cons

  • Can easily be crashed by vehicles.
  • Slow moving.
  • Ineffective against other infantry.
  • Vulnerable to anti-infantry units.
  • Loses against an Apache in one-on-one matches

Gallery

Trivia

  • The sidebar icon in Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn depicts rocket infantry armed with M72 LAW.
  • The pop-up icon on the sidebar of this unit, when displayed, calls the unit "Bazooka".
