- Fennek

The Fennek is a fast, lightly armoured reconnaissance vehicle developed by Germany and the Netherlands. Easy to transport thanks to its low weight, the Fennek is often inserted alongside ECA Commando units. The vehicles used by these elite special forces have been modified with a variety of unique features, making the Fennek a highly versatile support vehicle for sustained operations behind enemy lines. Its small and inconspicuous silhouette make it easy to conceal when stationary and it is equipped with tear gas grenades that sow chaos and confusion.

Its primary armament consists of the recently developed 'Jackhammer' heavy support weapon, a triple barreled 40mm smoothbore cannon capable of switching between fully- and semi-automatic fire as well as canister shot and slug rounds. In addition, the Fennek can place a small, stationary sensor pod which keeps the surrounding area revealed and marks targets for rapid precision fire until the battery runs out. This multitude of practical abilities allows the Fennek to provide the Commandos with crucial support for reconnaissance and raiding missions.

Overview

Fennek is a fast recon vehicle that can only be acquired through the Commando Insertion power. It is dropped onto the battlefield with five commandos already onboard.

It can switch between two fire modes: canister fire, and slug fire. The former is effective against clusters of infantry while the latter is effective against infantry and light vehicles.

It has stealth ability capable of concealing itself when not moving.

Fennek is equipped with Tear Gas grenades, which can launched ahead, capable of reducing combat effectiveness of enemy units.

Tactics

Fenneks are dedicated anti-infantry scout vehicles, they are an excellent choice as forward observer, as they have a long sight range and can also detect stealth units. Another good idea is to use them for ambush and infiltration operations as this vehicle becomes stealthed when not moving.

Counters

Due to their purpose and the need for a low profile the Fenneks have little armor. They are not designed to go into battle alone but rather as support units and target location. Fenneks are easily destroyed by any armored vehicle or air units because of their complete lack of anti-air weapons.

Quotes

The Fennek is voiced by Hector Doomhammer.

Prior to 1.851 the Fennek uses the same voiceset as the Lynx APC with some changes and additions, such as several lines that are not used by the Lynx.
