Twisted Insurrection is a standalone game based on a heavily modified Tiberian Sun engine. The game features a completely new in-depth storyline which puts you in an alternate timeline where the Brotherhood of Nod were victorious during the first Tiberian War rather than GDI. Do you have what it takes to drag the shattered Global Defense Initiative out of ruin? Or will you crush all who oppose the will of Kane and his Inner Circle? The choice is yours commander.

This is a complete list of the Twisted Dawn GDI Vehicles assigned to your command during Twisted Insurrection. Each unit has it's own introduction during the campaign progression so you can figure out what unit is best for what roles. Please note that changes will more than likely occur over time and some unit/cameos are still using placeholder images as we are still in our beta stages.


H.M.M.W.V. (Humvee)

H.M.M.W.V.'s are a main stay within Global Defense Initiative. They are relatively fast but lightly armoured vehicles, sporting a 50.cal heavy machinegun, capable of eliminating most infantry types with relative ease.

  • Cost: 400
  • Requires: Weapons Factory
  • Primary Weapon: 50.cal
  • Purpose: Anti-Infantry
  • Firepower: Low
  • Armour: Light
  • Speed: Fast
  • Crushes Infantry: No
  • Tech Level: 2


M113 A.P.C.

Unit pcture

The Armoured Personnel Carrier (A.P.C.) transports and protects up to five troops heading to and from battle locations. Its heavy armour, fast speed, and long sight range make it an ideal scouting unit. It is also useful for crushing infantry.

  • Cost: 700

  • Purpose: Transport, Anti-Infantry
  • Passengers: 5
  • Firepower: Low
  • Armour: Heavy
  • Speed: Average
  • Crushes Infantry: Yes
  • Tech Level: 2


M1A1 Abrams (Medium Tank)

Unit pcture

From its single barrel, the Medium Tank fires armour-piercing shells. It is faster, heavier and more destructive than Nod's Light Tank. This is one of the best all around vehicles in the game. It is effective against both vehicles and structures, but can be taken down by groups of infantry or aerial units.

  • Cost: 800
  • Requires: Weapons Factory
  • Primary Weapon: 105mm Anti-Armour Shells
  • Purpose: Anti-Armour
  • Firepower: Average

  • Speed: Average
  • Crushes Infantry: Yes
  • Tech Level: 2


H.M.M.W.V. Avenger

http://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/145/144953/auto/84150TDAvenger.PNG

GDI's primary anti-aircraft support vehicle, the Avenger consists of a giro-stabilized air defence turret mounted on a modified heavy Humvee. The turret has two Stinger missile launcher pods, each capable of discharging multiple fire-and-forget guided missiles in rapid succession. However the Avenger is unable to engage ground based threats and so a constant escort is advised.

  • Cost: 600
  • Requires: Weapons Factory, Radar
  • Primary Weapon: Dual Stinger Missile Launchers
  • Purpose: Anti-Aircraft
  • Firepower: High
  • Armour: Light
  • Speed: Average
  • Crushes Infantry: No
  • Tech Level: 5


M270 M.L.R.S.

Unit pcture

Mobile devastation. GDI's longest-range attacker fires 227mm rockets and is effective against just about everything, excluding aerial threats. With no short-range fighting ability, this unit needs close-quarter backup. This is an attack only vehicle. Keep it in the background and don't let enemies in close to it.

  • Cost: 800
  • Requires: Weapons Factory, Technology Centre
  • Primary Weapon: 227mm Long Range Missiles
  • Purpose: Artillery, Anti-Armour
  • Firepower: High
  • Armour: Light
  • Speed: Slow
  • Crushes Infantry: Yes
  • Tech Level: 5


X67 Mammoth Tank

http://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/145/144953/auto/93745TDMammoth.PNG

Armed with dual 120mm cannons and Mammoth Tusk Missiles, this giant is a very versatile attack unit. These weapons help compensate for its lack of speed and mobility. When this unit takes a lot of damage, it can slowly regenerate its health back up to 50%. When the Mammoth tank is placed in guard mode, it can fire at aerial units.

  • Cost: 1500
  • Requires: Weapons Factory, Technology Centre
  • Primary Weapon: Dual 120MM Anti-Armour Shells
  • Secondary Weapon: Mammoth Tusk Missiles
  • Purpose: Special
  • Firepower: High
  • Armour: Very Heavy
  • Speed: Slow
  • Crushes Infantry: Yes
  • Build Limit: 5
  • Tech Level: 7


Harvester

Unit pcture

This armour-plated vehicle seeks out and scoops up raw Tiberium, then transports it to refineries for processing. It is slow and unwieldy and will need to be protected. Its good points are that it can take a beating before being destroyed and it is proficient at crushing enemy infantry

  • Cost: 1000
  • Requires: Weapons Factory
  • Purpose: Recourse Collection
  • Storage: +30
  • Armour: Very Heavy
  • Speed: Average
  • Crushes Infantry: Yes
  • Tech Level: 2


Mobile Construction Vehicle (M.C.V.)

Unit pcture

The mobile construction vehicle lets you search for suitable base sites. Once one is found, convert the M.C.V. into a full-service Construction Yard and use it to build other structures. Since this vehicle is slow, unarmed, and expensive, you will want to keep it well guarded with other units.

  • Cost: 5000
  • Requires: Weapons Factory, Technology Centre
  • Purpose: Construction
  • Armour: Very Heavy
  • Speed: Slow
  • Crushes Infantry: Yes
  • Tech Level: 7


Orca V.T.O.L. Assault Craft

Unit pcture

This vertical take-off and landing (V.T.O.L.) craft carries five salvoes of T.O.W. rockets. Orcas are exceptionally useful for taking out enemy armour like Harvesters. When used in conjunction with Ion Cannon strikes, then can easily destroy enemy structures. When an Orca runs out of rockets, it must return to base for reloading.

  • Cost: 1200
  • Requires: Helipad
  • Primary Weapon: Dragon TOW Rockets
  • Purpose: Support
  • Firepower: Average
  • Armour: Light
  • Speed: Fast
  • Tech Level: 5

A-10 Warthog

Built for high-survivability the A-10 Thunderbolt II (aka Warthog), is armed with napalm warheads that are excellent at blanketing targeted areas such as troop concentrations or clustered fortifications, making the A-10 G.D.I.’s primary ground-attack craft.

  • Cost: 1600
  • Requires: Helipad, Technology Centre
  • Primary Weapon: Napalm Warheads
  • Purpose: Support
  • Firepower: High
  • Armour: Average
  • Speed: Fast
  • Build Limit: 5
  • Tech Level: 7

Provides field transportation for all infantry, rapidly deploying new troops into, or out of battle. This unit is basically an aerial version of the A.P.C. without the weapon.

  • Cost: 1500
  • Requires: Helipad, Technology Centre
  • Purpose: Transport
  • Passengers: 10
  • Armour: Heavy
  • Speed: Average

Those chinooks look like they might be able to skylift an MCV, or even offload a single MLRS.
