The Toxin Tractor demonstrated how the GLA made use of anything and everything to hand.

Background

Be careful! It may spill!
- Toxin Tractor on the move

Toxin tractors, as their name suggests, were ordinary civilian tractors refitted with crude armour plating and, more importantly, multiple tanks of toxin and a toxin-spraying turret. Toxin tractors were capable of clearing buildings garrisoned by the enemy by spraying a compressed liquid that vaporizes into a poisonous gas. Unlike Flash-bang grenades or Dragon tank fire, however, the toxins didn't instantly kill every infantry unit in a building, but rather one at a time at a very fast rate. When stationary, toxin tractors could be ordered to contaminate the area around them.

Abilities

Shower, anyone?
- Toxin Tractor contaminating an area
Gen1 Contaminate Icons Contaminate The Toxin Tractor used its weapon to spray the area with toxins, making it utterly deadly to infantry and light vehicles. In this mode, however, it could not fire upon approaching units.

Upgrades

Base

General, Anthrax Beta upgrade is here.
- Toxin Tractor informing the general about the new Anthrax Beta
Gen1 Anthrax Beta Icons Anthrax Beta When purchased, improved the toxin used by the Toxin Tractor. Dr. Thrax instead upgraded to Anthrax Gamma. Purchasable from any Palace for a cost of $2000.
ZH Anthrax Gamma Icons Anthrax Gamma When purchased, improved the toxin used by the Toxin Tractor further. Purchasable Dr.Thrax's Palace for a cost of $2000.
Gen1 Junk Repair Icons Junk Repair When purchased, Toxin Tractors slowly self-repaired in the field. Purchasable from any Black Market for a cost of $2000.

Salvage

Hehe, try it... you'll like it!
- Toxin Tractor about to liquidate an enemy

In Zero Hour, the Toxin Tractor could be upgraded with scavenged parts. The first upgrade noticeably increased the size of the Tractor's gun, while the second added two smaller barrels on either side, allowing it to spray an area with that much more toxic sludge.

Strategy

How about a closer look?
- Toxin Tractor

Most of the time GLA generals used the toxin tractor only as an easy way to clear garrisoned buildings, mainly because it was so ponderously slow. It was also lightly armoured, although it was known to have a surprising resilience against RPGs. The toxin tractor was deadly against infantry in direct confrontation, and was significantly damaging to light vehicles. However, it was next to useless against armoured vehicles and were ripe targets of opportunity. Toxins were also useless against buildings, and the toxin tractor required protection from aircraft.

Assessment

Pros

  • Very effective against infantry
  • Quite effective against lighter vehicles
  • Somewhat resistant to missiles
  • Cheap
  • Can clear garrisoned buildings
  • Contaminate ability can kill infantry and damage light vehicles around the Toxin Tractor
  • Salvaged parts increases attack range
  • Immune to radiation and toxins

Cons

  • Slow moving
  • Useless against buildings
  • Ineffective against heavier vehicles
  • Helpless against aircraft
  • Toxins might cause friendly fire
  • Toxins released upon destruction
  • Can be destroyed before fully clearing garrisoned buildings.
  • Infantry garrisoned in Chinese Bunkers are protected from toxins.
