Very little is known about the elite cadre, other than that they were elite soldiers of the Brotherhood of Nod and were better armed and equipped than the standard Light infantry. Since CABAL took control of all of Nod's cyborgs after its betrayal, these soldiers were deployed to fill the gap of advanced infantry during the final assault on CABAL's true core.
Unfortunately, they are still no match for a cyborg. In particular, they were unable to match the cyborg's considerably heavier armour, and cannot heal in Tiberium. As the Brotherhood does not train combat medics like GDI to heal its forces on the frontline, this is a significant drawback.
As an advantage, they are somewhat cheaper to train and recruit than hi-tech cyborgs, at less than half the price.
The elite cadre is one of multiple units reusing Anton Slavik's in-game sprite.
