The Stealth tank is a revolutionary vehicle of Nod in Tiberian Dawn.

Background[edit | edit source]

The stealth tanks of the First Tiberium War are a Nod tracked missile carrier, equipped with a cloaking device known as "Lazarus shield" that allows them to cloak nearly instantenously and disappear from sight. Unfortunately, stealth tanks are lightly armoured. Stealth tanks are named by Kane "Ezekiel's Wheel", after the biblical prophet's vision.

When the tank fires its twin Dragon TOW missiles it has to briefly deactivate its camouflage; as the cloaking system was incapable of recalculating the changing characteristics of the launchers during firing.

By the time the Second Tiberium War had begun, Nod had succeeded these units with the second generation of stealth tanks.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Rather ironically, stealth tanks are not capable of detecting other stealthed units.
  • The German name of the Nod stealth tank is "cloak of silence" (ger. Mantel des Schweigens).
