The amphibious armoured personnel carrier was a GDI support vehicle utilized during the Second Tiberium War and the Firestorm Conflict.

Background

By the Second Tiberium War, GDI's APCs had been completely redesigned. This new generation was a wheeled vehicle, with its machine gun removed to increase speed, especially over water. Although unable to fire at enemy ground units, the APC still retained its speed, and could travel through water, allowing GDI to quickly move squads of infantry over bodies of water and assault island fortresses, as was the case with Vega.

After the Firestorm Conflict, the Amphibious APC was replaced by the Guardian APC and its Mobile Repair Transport variant.

Game unit

Though unarmed, the APC is a valuable asset, as it can carry up to five infantry units over both land and water.

AI behavior

Amphibious APCs controlled by the AI have the following attack patterns:

All difficulties

  • 1x loaded with 3 Light Infantry and 2 Disc Throwers proceed to unload near a Construction Yard before targeting anything
    • This task force may be accompanied by 1 additional Subterranean APC with the same passengers (Hard only)
  • 1x loaded with 1 Ghost Stalker and 4 Disc Throwers proceed to unload near a Construction Yard before targeting structures

Easy

  • 1x loaded with 2 Light Infantry, 2 Disc Throwers and 1 Engineer proceed to unload near a Tiberium Refinery before targeting it
    • This task force will only be sent if the enemy owns 5000 credits or more
  • 1x loaded with 2 Light Infantry, 2 Disc Throwers and 1 Engineer proceed to unload near a Construction Yard before targeting anything

Medium/Hard

  • 1x loaded with 2 Disc Throwers and 3 Engineers proceed to unload near a Tiberium Refinery before targeting it
    • This task force will only be sent if the enemy owns a certain amount of credits (4000 for Medium, 3000 for Hard)
  • 1x loaded with 5 Engineers proceed to unload near a Construction Yard before targeting anything
