Cannot attack

Construction dozers were used by both the USA and China, primarily to build and repair structures. (Note that although they were differently designed, both factions' dozers performed identically.)

Overview[edit | edit source]

Advantage[edit | edit source]

Why do I always get the dirty jobs?
- Dozer operator, on being ordered to clear a mine field.

Construction Dozers are built at the Command Center and can be repaired at the War Factory. Dozers are able to build and repair all battlefield structures, as well as all friendly structures, including those captured or garrisoned by friendly forces. Essentially an armored vehicle, dozer has some immunity against contaminated or irradiated battlefield. This feature gave the commander an option to repair leaked chemical bunker and capture them.

Disadvantage[edit | edit source]

Layin' the foundation
- Construction Dozer USA

A Dozer, even with the ability to clear minefields, cannot directly attack enemy units. They can, however, drive over enemy infantry. Note that the China dozer is slower and less manuverable, though. Since they are largely defenseless, they are good cannon fodder for enemy tanks. EMP weaponry can disable them and hijackers can take over them.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Game-Play[edit | edit source]

Tactics[edit | edit source]

What's the story?
- Construction Dozer USA

Dozers are recommended to be built at the start of a match to ensure for fast building and expansion, and their ability to clear minefields is invaluable when attacking Chinese structures later in the game.

Counters[edit | edit source]

Building the Chinese Empire.
- Construction Dozer China

Having no weapons, Construction Dozers need to be escorted whenever they venture out of your main base. Although surprisingly resilient against small arms fire, Dozers can be reduced to wreckage very quickly by rockets or tank shells. A favourite, and often very daring, GLA tactic was to attempt to capture an enemy Dozer, thus allowing them to build American and Chinese structures, and consequently units. Jarmen Kell is often sent in to hijack Construction Dozers.

  • When a Hijacker with a veterancy rank captures a Construction Dozer, the Dozer gains veterancy.
  • The USA Dozer resembles a wheeled Front Loader while the Chinese Dozer resembles a normal Bulldozer.
