GDI harvester (Tiberium Wars) is a stub and needs your help. You can help by expanding it.

The third-generation harvester was a GDI vehicle that served as their Tiberium harvesting efforts around the time of Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath.

Design

These resource gatherers are easily recognized by their light machine gun mounted above the driver's cab to ward off enemy forces that wish to steal their cargo, although it was not be able to fend off armour. Their front "claws" are similar to those of the harvester's first iteration.

In-game unit

GDI Harvesters serve as your main source of income; automatically seeking and collecting raw tiberium from nearby fields before returning to a Refinery, where it is collected, counted, and processed into the commander's funds.

Like all other factions, every new Refinery supplies one unit but more can be built, and deployed, from any friendly War Factory or Reclamation Hub.

However GDI's variant has less in armor mainly due to its defensive capability in the form of a light machine gun. The machine gun does minimal damage, however it is capable of picking off light infantry when given sufficient time.

These Harvesters will also hold their ground should they become attacked and others would come and lend a hand, when the need arises.

Apart from that, Harvesters do not have the firepower to take on vehicles or anti-vehicle infantry and aircraft will be able to destroy them without fear of retaliation.
