The High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, commonly called Humvee, is GDI's scout unit in Command & Conquer and The Covert Operations.

Due to possible legal reasons over the Humvee brand owned by AM General, the unit is renamed to light scout in Command & Conquer: Remastered. References to Humvee are kept on this wiki.

Background

The Humvee is a lightly armored and armed vehicle, designed for scouting, transportation, and light fire support. Although ineffective against hard targets, the 7.62 mm M60 general purpose machine gun mounted on the roof provides a 360 degree area of fire, while the Humvee's speed allows it to quickly support advancing infantry squads, perform recon operations, and retreat.

The ruggedness of the design led to it remaining in use well after the First Tiberium War. Some remained in use in Yellow Zones as late as 2047.[1]

Game unit

The Humvee is the basic scout vehicle of GDI, designed to harass enemy infantry and recon the map, but despite being an utility vehicle, it cannot carry passengers. In its role it's equivalent to the Nod buggy. Although four times as expensive as the basic minigunner, the Humvee can cross Tiberium without losing health and can be repaired, making it a good candidate for hit and run attacks where minigunners would wind up crushed.

Appearances

The humvee is first available in the first GDI mission but more can be built in Restoring Power.

Behind the scenes

  • In the German dub of the game, the Humvee was named "Wüstenjäger", which means desert hunter.
