The Shockwave is a GDI Offense-class assault vehicle in Tiberian Twilight.

Background

It fires a sonic grenade (which does blast-type damage) which is highly effective against structures and masses of light units such as engineers.[1] These sonic blasts are delivered via sonic shells for timed area damage. Adding a second shell before the first detonates creates a truly devastating resonance effect.

It is possibly the successor to the Shatterer from the Third Tiberium War.

In-game

The Shockwave is the only vehicle that deals Blast damage that is available to the GDI Offense Class before the Mastodon is unlocked. It is unlocked at Level 6 and is available at Tier 2. They are designed to assault enemy advanced structures from a relatively close range.

The Shockwave has a cannon firing sonic resonance grenades. The grenades continuously do damage over time before exploding. They deal Blast damage which are highly effective against advanced defense structures. In one instance, a group of Shockwaves were able to destroy a Separatist blockade of three Obelisks of Light with relative ease in escorting Kane to the TCN opening ceremony. Shockwaves have Medium-type armour which is resilient to most attacks, but are vulnerable towards Cannon-type attacks such as those of main battle tanks.

Shockwaves, like all of GDI's hover vehicles, can cliffjump, giving them excellent mobility.

Their closest Nod equivalent is the AT-6 Flame Tank.

An achievement can be earned if the player uses it to damage or destroy several targets.
