Troop Crawler ready for assault!
- Assault Troop Crawler

The Assault troop transport (or assault troop crawler) is a second-generation troop crawler developed by General Shin Fai.

Background[]

Assault Troop Crawler here.
- Assault Troop Crawler

Like the regular Troop Crawler, it is a reasonably fast wheeled APC, already coming with eight Mini-Gunners on board upon rolling out of the War Factory, with stealth detection. It has firing ports for the infantrymen inside, superior armor and a small propaganda tower to heal other friendlies.

Upgrades[]

CNCG Subliminal Messaging Cameo Subliminal messaging Increases the effectiveness of the Assault troop crawler's speaker tower by 25%. Purchasable at any Propaganda Center center for a cost of $500.

Game unit[]

Strategy[]

Get your guns ready!
- Assault Troop Crawler

Although more expensive than its predecessor, the cost of the Assault Troop Transport covers the expense of the eight Mini-Gunners (as well as saving $400) and it is much better equipped for battle. If some of the Mini-Gunners were replaced by Tank Hunters the Assault Troop Transport would be well-equipped to take on all comers. In the event of the vehicle's destruction, its passengers would survive to fight on, albeit with reduced health.

Hijackers, in particular, are useless against Assault Troop Transports, as this variant retains the original's stealth detection, allowing units inside to eliminate them easily.

Counters[]

The Assault Troop Crawler has better armor than the regular Troop Crawler but is still quite poorly defended against heavy weapons, especially rockets.

A Nuke Cannon firing Neutron Shells can wipe out all of the Mini-Gunners inside as well as the driver, allowing capture of the vehicle. Jarmen Kell as well can eliminate the vehicle driver and later kill the Mini-Gunners as they exit the vehicle, if he is fast enough to snipe all of the gunners before they can re-crew the crawler.

Changelog[]

  • Zero Hour patch 1.03:
    • decreased heal rate to 2% (non-upgraded) and 4% (upgraded)
    • now displays the upgrade cameo for subliminal messaging
