After the destruction of Tiberium became GDI's main goal they returned as a clearing unit. They were much lighter and cheaper than the Battle Disruptors which were developed later on. Although their Sonic Weapons were heavy, they weren't able to hold the Nod attacks which occured in the start of TW3 and therefore should be withdrawed.

The war seemed like it was over when the GDI Ion Cannon stroke Temple Prime in Sarajevo. It seemed but wasn't. After some days the Scrin invaded Earth. Some Yellow Zones which were under GDI control were hitten by Scrin forces. GDI was almost defeated in these zones and used everything they had to defend their bases. Surprisingly, the Disruptors seemed very strong versus the Invader units. When GDI forces reported that sonics were strong against the Alien forces, the GDI command ordered their scientists to modify the Disruptors so they can be thrown into battle. The new Disruptor was ready to use after three days of development. Their basic TW2 structure allowed GDI scientists to add heavy armor. They also modified the weapon so it could fire a focused beam to clear Nod infantry out of buildings. The Disruptors helped GDI commanders all around the globe take down the Thresold Towers and the Node.
"GDI's weapons are replaced and aboned with every decade passing. But the Disruptor is an exception. It uses technology known even during TW1 and is used with great efficienty even nowdays. Each GDI commander is advised to use them every time possible to destroy Invader hordes. Its abillity to kill infantry and crush armor using sound maked it a fearsome weapon even to the Nod Fanatics because they know that if they get in their range they'll die before reaching explosion range..."

The Disruptor's sonic armament anihillates enemy infantry and crushes enemy tanks with great firepower. Its special abillity is to use a focused sonic beam on an enemy occupied structure and clear it out. it can even hit multiple targets if they get into the beam's path. But it requires technology researched at the Tech Center and is quite expensive.
