Terrorists are suicide bombers working for the GLA in the GLA War.

BackgroundEdit

I will die for the cause!
- Terrorist

One of the GLA's greatest triumphs was convincing ordinary people of the worthiness of the organisation's cause. Some GLA recruits were willing to sacrifice themselves for the cause by becoming human bombs. These Terrorists would strike fear into enemy forces. Cheap to train, Terrorists ran at the enemy and detonated as much C4 as they could carry when they got close. Terrorists could also commandeer cars, creating car bombs.

AbilityEdit

- Terrorist entering a civilian car
Gen1 Car Bomb Icons Car Bomb Enable the Terrorist to enter an unoccupied vehicle and turn it into a car bomb. The car bomb is fast but poorly armored.

TacticsEdit

FOR THE CAUSE!
- a Terrorist's last moments
Generals Terrorist

Terrorist during GLA attack on a Chinese nuclear plant

Terrorists were potentially deadly. Even a single Terrorist could destroy any faction's basic tank, while fast-moving car bombs could do even more damage. Terrorists were often used alongside other units on the attack, providing a distraction for enemy forces, however, they were best employed in surprise attacks. Just two terrorists can easily subdue an Overlord Tank, meaning despite the cheap costs should not be underestimated.

It was critical to use units firing bullets or non-explosive projectiles when attempting to neutralize terrorists, because rockets, cannon shells and flame weaponry would detonate their explosives, potentially damaging their targets anyway. Also, running them over with a vehicle would cause them to detonate their explosive packs beneath its treads.

A particularly devious GLA commander would order Terrorists to commandeer Combat Cycles and look for a weakness in his opponent's defenses, before delivering a highly explosive shock as their lightning quick speed allowed them to zip past enemies easily, giving their opponents little time to retaliate. (General Rodall Juhziz and General Leang had their Combat Cycles driven by Terrorists straight out of the Arms Dealer)

CountersEdit

Terrorist and Car Bomb attack.

- Terrorist under fire

Terrorists were still soft targets, however. Anti-infantry units could take them down quite easily, although this had to be done from a distance. This was demonstrated during a massed GLA attack on a Chinese nuclear plant, in which a wave of Terrorists was helplessly mown down by Gattling Cannons and Gattling Tanks (although not before killing an entire platoon of Red Guard). Aircraft such as the Comanche could attack and mow down Terrorists with impunity. Fire weapons are not recommended for killing Terrorists because they will explode when killed by one. They don't fare well against anti-infantry defense structures such as Gattling Cannons and Tunnel networks either. As they weren't the fastest runners, the element of surprise was largely required to employ them successfully.

MultiplayerEdit

I love a crowd!
- Terrorist

Terrorists are used extensively in Multiplayer of both Generals and Zero Hour, being great for early base rush attacks. Due to the fact that a large number of terrorists riding bikes into the players base is almost unstoppable, many game hosts choose to make a "No DB" rule, which means "No Demobikes".

AssessmentEdit

ProsEdit

  • Cheap
  • Fast
  • Powerful when massed, even against infantry
  • Car Bomb ability hijacks a civilian car for increased speed
  • Can pilot a Combat Cycle for increased speed and damage
  • Can be stealted with GPS Scrambler.

ConsEdit

  • Weak armor, including when using Car Bomb ability
  • Vulnerable to aircraft
  • Vulnerable to anti-infantry weapons
  • Vulnerable to artillery, depending on accuracy
  • Most buildings require multiple Terrorists to be destroyed
  • Group attack can cause friendly fire, possibly leading to a chain reaction amongst the Terrorists

General Division Edit

Dr Thrax Edit

The Terrorist had been modified to carry lethal toxins addition onto its dynamite payload. After exploding, the Toxin Terrorists would leave some toxin residue which strongly affect infantry.

General Rodall 'Demo' Juhziz Edit

The Terrorists were supplied with more powerful bombs that made them as deadly as a Bomb Truck explosion! The affected area also larger.

Prince Kassad Edit

In multiplayer games, no changes occurred. In the campaign, however, the Terrorist is stealthed. Prince Kassad could sneak them into enemy bases to strike at important targets.

General LeangEdit

Her Combat Cycles have Terrorists but cannot be trained in her Barracks. No changes, though.
