Carryall (Tiberium Wars)
|“||Carryall, got the mission!
- Pilot of Carryall
Background[edit | edit source]
Before the Third Tiberium War, the Brotherhood of Nod designed their own variant of the carryall based on the GDI's retired Orca Carryall. Like their GDI predecessor, Nod Carryalls are capable of lifting all but the heaviest of vehicles over any terrain. These VTOL aircrafts are equipped with four engines on rotatable mounts, providing lift and thrust (they aren't, however, turbofan engines, making them unrelated to the ORCA aircraft technology).
In-game[edit | edit source]
While slightly slower its GDI counterpart, the V-35 Ox, the Carryall is marginally less fragile in the field. Similar to the Ox, it can also carry an infantry squad
Nevertheless, it is by no means designed to enter enemy-controlled territory and is highly susceptible to anti-aircraft fire. It also cannot carry the heaviest of Nod vehicles, such as Reckoners or Avatars. Despite being seen airlifting Stealth Tank and Flame Tank reinforcements into the battlefield, Carryalls called in by commanders are not cleared to airlift these tanks.
Carryalls cannot be constructed at the Air Tower and must be called in from high altitude, where they loiter waiting for assignments. They can be repaired at Air Towers, though. Most ground units can call in carryall service to haul them to any place in the battlefield, for a fee of 500 credit in a single trip.
Changelog[edit | edit source]
- Tiberium Wars patch 1.05:
- hit points increased by 70%
- fixed an error that sometimes caused Ox transports and Carryalls to become stuck and unselectable when ordered to land next to edges of cliffs
