Background[edit | edit source]
The Mammoth Mk. III is the third generation of the GDI's imposing Mammoth Tank line. The heaviest of GDI's tanks, the Mammoth is equipped with dual 150mm smooth-bore cannons as well as dual anti-aircraft rocket pods.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Can attack while moving.
- Crushes infantry, killing them by moving over them.
Game unit[edit | edit source]
Mammoth tank is the ultimate late game GDI unit. It literally crushes any infantry that stands in its way, in a 1v1 battle it beats all vehicles. It can can even attack air units, but not nearly as effectively as ground units. Combined with high health, it is incredibly difficult to remove and even if it succeeds, probably another Mammoth is already on its way.
Although tough as nails, Mammoth will eventually fall to sustained aircraft attacks, especially by a Basilisk. Therefore a good anti-air unit is required, for example, Hammerhead. Both of these units together lock down both ground and air. The Heroic charge ability allows Mammoth to get to the pads or harvesters in a more timely manner.
The main threat for Mammoth is the Nuclear missile itself. It takes a long time to acquire the necessary amount of Tiberium to field a single Mammoth Tank, all while contesting pads and protecting harvesters. If the map has three separate pads, the Mammoth can lock down a single pad, but will not be able to help contest the others. To counteract this weakness, Mammoth can just ignore the pads altogether and go for enemy harvesters (to finance an additional Mammoth tank) and then attack the base directly, provided that there is enough time to do so.
Mammoth tank cannot roll over infantry if there is a vehicle on the same tile. For example, Mutant marauders can attack the Mammoth with impunity so long as there are Cyberwheels moving back and forth though the marauder tile.
