They don't stand a chance
- Kodiak when attacking

The Kodiak is a rare GDI tech aircraft in Command & Conquer: Rivals.


The Kodiak class command ships, made famous by Cmd. Michael McNeil during the second Tiberium War, are heavy gunships capable of shelling multiple ground targets simultaneously. Slow, but heavily armored, Kodiaks are valued for their ability to quickly destroy large formations of enemy ground units.


  • Can target infantry Strong against vehicles Cannot target aircraft
  • Can simultaneously attack up to 3 enemies in an arc.
  • Flying.

Game unit

Kodiak is the ultimate flying fortress in the GDI arsenal, having great health and ferocious damage against vehicles. It is a hard counter to the Nod's Avatar and the GDI Mammoth tank. Ability to attack multiple targets at once makes it difficult to overwhelm the Kodiak with lot of cheap ground units.

To guard against airborne threats the Kodiak can be paired with Slingshot and hammerheads and against the infantry the Shatterer, the Razorback or even Disruptor can do the job[2].

The main weakness of the Kodiak are air-to-air weapon systems, like Banshees and Phantoms, which in group will take down a Kodiak fast. The average moving speed makes Kodiak unable to quickly respond to the situation on the battlefield, making it less useful on maps where pads are long way apart. The slow turning speed can limit it's ability to attack moving units.

Hammerheads are recommended to protect the Kodiaks from enemy air while Razorbacks and Talons should be used to guard them from infantry units.
