The Armored Personnel Carrier is an epic GDI unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

The humble GDI A.P.C. Mk III is not the most flashy unit in the GDI arsenal, but its advanced crew safety systems make it a favorite of GDI infantry units across the globe. GDI Missile Squads transported by the A.P.C. routinely survive the destruction of the vehicle and continue fighting in its place.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Game unit[edit | edit source]

A.P.C. is an anti-infantry and anti-air vehicle that provides a special kind of staying power. It has good enough health to withstand prolonged anti-armor assault from Scorpion tank. Even if through perseverance the A.P.C. is destroyed, it leaves a Missile squad in it's place, which usually is a good counter to whatever unit took down the A.P.C. This ability makes A.P.C. especially useful at holding pads.

The attack power of A.P.C. is only marginally better than that of Rhino, so being a mid-game unit, it won't be able to clear out the pads quickly.

The main weakness of the A.P.C. is its price and movement speed. It means that on it's own it won't be able to push into the pads and relies on other units to clear out the way. Once established, it is best removed by combined arms, like one or more medium anti-armor units (e.g. Predator or Scorpion tanks) to break up the vehicle, immediately followed by an anti-infantry infantry (e.g. Riflemen or Militants).[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The A.P.C. is our first attempt at a high HP, low DPS unit that is primarily useful for holding points. The Missile Squad it spawns upon death means it’s very challenging to remove the A.P.C. completely from the map.
