Humvee (Tiberian Dawn)
|For more uses, see Humvee.|
Background[edit | edit source]
The Humvee is a lightly armored and armed vehicle, designed for scouting, transportation, and light fire support. Although ineffective against hard targets, the 7.62 mm M-60 general purpose machine gun mounted on the roof provides a 360 degree area of fire, while the Humvee's speed allows it to quickly support advancing infantry squads, perform recon operations, and retreat.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Humvee is the basic scout vehicle of GDI, designed to harass enemy infantry and recon the map, but despite being an utility vehicle, it cannot carry passengers. In its role it's equivalent to the Nod buggy. Although four times as expensive as the basic minigunner, the Humvee can cross Tiberium without losing health and can be repaired, making it a good candidate for hit and run attacks where minigunners would wind up crushed.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- In the German dub of the game, the Humvee was named "Wüstenjäger", which means desert hunter.
