The Penetrator is a level 2 vehicle armed with an energy weapon; the weapon on the unit is similar to that of the Annihilator with the exceptions of it having less range and power, but still having enough range to make it the longest ranged weapon on any of the faction's vehicles. It has no CORE counterpart.


Despite its powerful weapon, the Penetrator is very slow and rather poorly-armored. It can destroy many units with just one shot, but due to low rate of fire and high damage, it should be used on heavily-armored units that cannot otherwise be easily destroyed, such as the Goliath, The Can and the Sumo.
