- One of the Propaganda Truck's promises, 'Chrono Defense'

The Propaganda Truck was an Allied vehicle used during the Third World War. It is a standard truck equipped with loud speakers to spread capitalistic propaganda messages.

- Propaganda Truck saying another lie.

The Propaganda Truck was employed by General Carville in the village near the Ural Mountains in an attempt to recruit Russian civilians in attacking the battle lab. It promised things such as guns and TVs for anyone who would join the Allied cause. It was destroyed by the Soviet Commander to prevent more civilian rebellions. In the wreckage, he found a Spy Satellite communication device, covering the entire area and used them to repel the Allied attacks.

In-game unit

If the truck is not destroyed in time, nearby villagers will start their uprising against the Soviets, forcing the commander to "cull" them. It is very fragile, as two conscripts can scrap it by garrisoning nearby structures, as it always follows the same path. For even faster demolition, a single terror drone also makes short work of it.

Behind the Scenes

The Propaganda Truck is voiced by David Fries, who also voiced the Chrono Legionnaire and Rocketeer.
