Cost: 1550
Prerequisite: Warfactory, tech center, command center
Role: APC, base breaching, infantry protection
Strengths: Extremely heavy armor, carry capacity of 10
Weaknesses: Slow speed, low damage

Armadillo Heavy APCs are used by GDI when they need to be absolutely sure that the transported materials or personnel reach their target intact. These massive, heavily armored vehicles can survive bombing raids and anti-armour fire for a very long time, while being virtually impervious to lighter weapons. In case of an ambush, they are armed with double anti-armour cannons, that while aren't all that powerful, can destroy even heavier targets in prolonged fire. Many GDI commanders use these as breaching vehicles in base assaults, as they can soak up much of the incoming fire. The Armadillos also work as bunkers for infantry to take refuge in.

I'd go for a more original name.

Hmm, has armadillo already been used in some other C&C title or mod? Other animal based name I was thinking was Rhino but isn't that what the soviet tank is called in RA2...

If you've ever actually seen an Armadillo, this is a very appropriate name.

C&C4 has an Armadillo transport and a Rhino Artillery, but yours is original and look's nothing like their Armadillo.

I would suggest that you could have it deploy in a way thats similair to how an armadillo rolls up for an increased defensive bonus, perhaps even becoming a stationary bunker, but I'm not sure if thats possible in TS

It look's pretty similar to carnage_xploade's voxel.
Strikingly similar, in my eyes.
EDIT: Oh, I see - there's a dedicated credits list. Nevermind.

Well, there are many mods with units called the Stealth Tank, F22 Raptor, Battlefortress, Chrono Prison, blah blah blah... In short, some of these names are common and don't bother the modders much Wink

Random fact if anyone cares: This thing is the Behemoth from the CnC European Conflict mod for CnC GeneralsZH.

It's a mod's asset, so you can't download it. Unless SuperJoe releases them.
Ontopic: The name really fits the unit, I love it.

If you use it for a private mod (a mod you don't release to everyone on the internet), you can grab it here. Just download the Reform preview and look for it in ecache02.mix (armadillo.vxl and armadillo.hva).

If you want to use it for a public mod, you can find the original voxel I based the armadillo on here, then edit it to your liking.

Hope this helps Wink

Haha don't excuse your English, if it's your second language then you write it better than most people who have it as their first.
