Description[edit | edit source]
The Rat Pack APC (also known as the Tracker) is well-armoured, but nonetheless vulnerable due to its lack of weaponry. The Rat Pack's functions are infantry transport and pilot recovery only. It should not travel without a formidable escort, especially when carrying personnel.
Although unarmed, the Rat Pack carries five infantrymen which can be used to attack lightly defended targets, or as a siege tool for quickly disabling enemy buildings. The troopers can cause heavy damage to buildings, being armed with weaponry far superior to that of a typical foot soldier, but still lack armor and thus are ineffective at punching a hole in enemy defences. Whilst the APC itself is heavily armored it lacks manoeuvrability and defensive weapons, it is wise to consider deploying it with an offensive escort.
After the Rat Pack deploys its troops, it must return to the Recycler or a Barracks to obtain more. The soldiers, meanwhile, will continue to attack only their target until it is destroyed - or they are wiped out. Any survivors will attempt to return to their base.
As with most vehicles, the APC can be piloted by the player. Should the player choose to do this, they must target an enemy target before deploying troops.
