----- slow but tough, captures cities -----

Point Value: 1

Groundcar. A slow-moving unit which travels on treads, like today's tanks. It can afford to carry a large shield generator, which makes it tough to destroy. It can negotiate forests by pushing down the trees, or burning them away with its gun, but it can't move in mountains. Groundcars are ideal for defending your homeland from invasion. If you have enough on hand, you can often bounce back even after many of your towns are captured.
