The Lynx APC (Armored Personnel Carrier) is the ECA's basic troop transport. It has six transport slots for quickly transporting ECA infantry across the battlefield.

Whether its the early Engineer rushes or mid-late game Grenadier transport, the Lynx plays a pivotal role in supporting ECA's ever reliable infantry by providing much needed mobility for a cheap price.

Lore

"Keep Calm and Carry On..." Hah, what a joke!
- Lynx

The European Lynx APC is the workhorse of ECA`s infantry division. Despite its outlandish design, it’s very reliable and offers the best possible protection for the troops inside something essential in Europe`s terrain where ECA supply lines and reinforcements are prone to be ambushed by Russian gunships.

The Lynx brigades had suffered heavy losses in the battlefield against the heavy shelling and armor piercing weaponry deployed by the Russian Army. As a cheap modification, armor skirts were installed on the sides to allow for greater protection against incoming projectiles.

Although the plating isn't the best the ECA has to offer, it is the cheapest and ensures the Lynx APC can continue to serve as an inexpensive infantry carrier of the ECA.

Overview

...and here I thought I'd be assigned to a tank!
- Lynx

While lightly armored, the Lynx APC is cheap, and fast, to build. Once created, up to 6 soldiers may garrison inside. While the gun is flimsy, it should be more than enough to dispel enemy infantry and shouldn't be depended on and, as a result, armed escorts should be a wise option. However the Armor Skirts should allow these transports to survive the moden battlefield much longer. 

Not only does it provide a venerable transport for soldiers, it is also amphibious, allowing for Pandur/Lynx shore invasions or access to remote islands for occupance. 

Tactics

As it is a reasonably affordable transport solution, the Lynx can be used as a means of traversing soldiers to distant locations or to areas surrounded by water. Whether island, or not, the Lynx can get there.

While not as a well armed, or armored, as the Russian's BMP, it shouldn't be used as a frontline transport and should deploy troops behind advancing forces. Its amphibious capabilities also allows you to invade the enemy by sea. Deploying troops into otherwise overlooked positions that the enemy failed to realise.

Counters

Lacking in armor, a Lynx APC can stand up to smattering of soldiers. However, focused anti-vehicle fire should be enough to put them down. It is recommended to destroy them before they drop their passengers, to prevent them from posing a risk.

Lynx APCs also lack their own anti-air protection, so air attacks are a viable option if they are not escorted by anti-air units.
