- Razorback when deployed

The Razorback is a rare GDI air unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

Designed from the guns out to be the ultimate anti-infantry aircraft, the Razorback provides GDI forces with precision strafing runs on soft targets with its twin 8mm rotating cannons[2]. The Razorback can take the advantage of its extremely agile design to maneuver around the battlefield and chase down escaping infantry units with ease.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Game unit[edit | edit source]

Razorback is an ultimate mid game anti infantry unit. Much like Chem buggy, it attacks while moving, but it moves over obstacles and ground units, making it almost a certain death for any unit from the Hand of Nod or barracks once the Razorback has closed the distance.

The ability to attack while moving allows it to stack with other units, thus increasing total firepower while staying safe. This requires careful management. This tactics works very well with Mohawk gunship, where both units together clear ground units without much effort and together will remove a squad of Attack bikes in seconds. Another option is to hide behind a shield of Missile squads, which can deal with most vehicles and aircraft, while the Razorback steps in to deal with infantry.

Even when pressured from the skies, can retreat to safety while still dishing out damage to units under.

Main weakness of the unit is aircraft and ground vehicles. It being a specialty unit it can struggle to find the role on the battlefield if the opponent is switching to non-infantry units.

Intel report on Razorback

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The intent behind Razorback is to provide a Helipad to players that will work best with all assemblies during the opening, mid-battle or even at the very close end of the battle. This is the first in a series that’ll provide agility to players.

  • Created as a better version of Nod's Venom[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Top Air Force fighter pilot.
  • Even though it can't shoot directly underneath itself, the animation shows guns blazing.
  • Model is somewhat similar that to an V-35 Ox transport ship.
