The Sheppard tank is a GDI Support-class tank in Tiberian Twilight. It used to be called the "Prowler"

Background[edit | edit source]

Built on an MBT-6 Predator chassis, the Shepard is equipped to make it more difficult for enemy fire to accurately target friendly units around it. It is presumably named after GDI's first commander-in-chief, General Mark Jamison Sheppard.

In-game[edit | edit source]

The Shepard is considered the main battle tank of GDI's support class. It gives a dodge bonus to other friendly GDI units, and can pack decent damage to Nod forces as well. An achievement can be earned if the player uses this tank to destroy several units.
