Here’s a rundown on the vehicles you will be exposed to in Homefront.

Return to Top AH-64 Apache

The AH-64 Apache is armed with Hellfire anti-armor missiles, Hydra-70 rockets and a 30 mm chain gun. The Apache has a wide array of abilities including anti-armor/anti-personnel, supporting fire, and escort. This allows it to achieve superior agility, weaponry and high position over the battlefield.

Single Player
The AH-64 Apache is the primary attack helicopter for the United States military.

Multiplayer
The AH-64 Apache is one of the most expensive Battle Point weapons in multiplayer, and, like the Z-10 Chimera, is heavily armored, giving it slow movement. The armor will, however, prevent the helicopter form taking damage from small arms fire. The pilot will be able to fire six missiles without locking on, or can hover over targets for a time to lock on. There will be a second seat for a gunner, who will be in control of a thermal chain gun.

Return to Top AH-700 Scout

The AH-700 Scout is a lightly armored helicopter that will be usable by both the Korean People’s Army and the United States Armed Forces.

Return to Top Multiplayer

The AH-700 Scout will be able to be bought by both factions with Battle Points, and will be distinguishable by different camouflages and markings for the two sides. It will be equipped with dual under-wing machine guns and will be effective against light vehicles and infantry. Though fast, its armor will be negligible, making it an easy target for heavy machine guns or rockets. It will even be possible for a skilled sniper to kill the pilot. On the PC version of Homefront, it will have a second seat for a reconnaissance passenger.

Return to Top Goliath

The Goliath is a Resistance vehicle featured in Homefront. According to the E3 Demo, it is armed with a .50 caliber machine gun and a quad-mortar launcher, and attacks targets that have been painted by the player. It is vulnerable to EMP rockets, however. The Goliath is mostly a 6-wheeled all-wheel drive tank-like machine, modeled after the [[[1]]] that can ram through houses, cars, buildings, people, and other objects that can be destroyed, also can carry gear. The Goliath is only featured in the campaign. Goliath is a semi-automous attack drone whose navigation and machine gun is automatic and kills Koreans itself, yet the rocket launcher takes its orders from Jacobs, who holds the targeter.

Return to Top Ground Assault Drone

The MQ50 MG Wolverine is a drone outfitted with a large-caliber machine gun for anti-infantry purposes. It is designed to damage the enemy while allowing the user to safely hide behind cover, but is vulnerable to frag grenades and EMP attacks.
Like all drones, the Ground Assault Drone has a life determined by its battery. When the user fires and the user moves, battery power is drained until the drone becomes inoperable.

“All drones in Homefront are battery powered – the more you move, the more you fire your weapons, the more battery life you waste. Eventually your battery runs out of juice and your drone expires. This lets drones have a free reign of the entire in-bounds landscape without having to be tethered to the location of the drone operator. As displayed below, the drone HUD shows battery life as well as the weapon system in use.”
— KAOS CHIEFS

A battery-powered, multi-terrain tracked drone. The assault variant is equipped with a machine gun. Vulnerable to EMP and melee damage.

Multiplayer
It is unlocked at level 1.

Return to Top M-1114

The M-1114 “Up-Armored” High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV or Humvee) is a multirole ground vehicle used worldwide. Its primary role is that of a fast mode of transport and anti-aircraft vehicle. It’s high rate of speed and maneuverability coupled with high rate of fire machine guns make it an effective platform against infantry and light armored aircraft. It will cost 400BP.

Return to Top M1A3 Abrams

The M1A3 Abrams is a main battle tank in Homefront. The primary weapon is a 120mm smoothbore cannon, and the secondary weapon is 50 cal. M2HB heavy machine gun. With the tank’s large cannon and formidable armor, it should be able to sustain attack from most weapons for a prolonged period, giving it the opportunity to use overwhelming firepower to succeed. In multiplayer, it can be purchased for 2000 BP. It is used by the Americans.

Return to Top T-99 MBT

The T-99 MBT is an Chinese main battle tank in Homefront. It is used by the Korean People’s Army.

The T-99 uses a 125 mm smoothbore cannon, and a secondary weapon of a Type 85 12.7mm heavy machine gun. The armor of the T-99 is weaker compared to the M1A3 Abrams to make room for the tanks more powerful main gun. It would be wise to use a “hit and run” tactic when facing enemy armor.

Return to Top Z-10 Chimera

The Z-10 Chimera has a wide array of abilities, including anti-armor/anti-personnel, supporting fire, and escort. This allows it to achieve superior agility, weaponry, and high position over the battlefield.

Singleplayer
The Z-10 Chimera is the primary attack helicopter for the Korean People’s Army.

Multiplayer
The Z-10 Chimera is one of the most expensive Battle Point weapons in multiplayer, and, like the AH-64 Apache, is heavily armored, giving it slow movement. The armor will, however, prevent the helicopter form taking damage from small arms fire. The pilot will be able to fire six missiles without locking on, or can hover over targets for a time to lock on. There will be a second seat for a gunner, who will be in control of a thermal chain gun.

Return to Top Air Recon Drone

The RQ-10 Parrot is an airborne spy drone that allows the user to locate targets that are hidden from view if flown properly over a guarded area or where enemies may be hiding.

The movement system will feature a battery that will deplete when the drone moves or when it fires:

“All drones in Homefront are battery powered – the more you move, the more you fire your weapons, the more battery life you waste. Eventually your battery runs out of juice and your drone expires. This lets drones have a free reign of the entire in-bounds landscape without having to be tethered to the location of the drone operator. As displayed below, the drone HUD shows battery life as well as the weapon system in use.”
— KAOS CHIEFS

Multiplayer
Unlocked at level 6 or day 1 with Gamestop preorder (along with SCAR-L and Auto Repair Ability, and permanately the 8700 Express Shotgun)

Return to Top Air Assault Drone

A battery-operated, remote-control helicopter. Armed with two unguided rocket pods. Vulnerable to EMP, small arms fire, and anti-air rockets.

Singleplayer

Multiplayer
The AQ-11 Buzzard is an unmanned attack drone that is usable in multiplayer. It will be capable of bombing the enemy with anti-personnel mines, and will be challenging to use. The drone will be limited by a battery system, so moving and firing its weapons will drain energy until it is no longer usable.It is unlocked at level 28.

The drone has the ability to switch between two firing modes: a “dumb fire” mode that will only shoot rockets straight ahead, and a “lock on” mode where the rockets will target the vehicle if the mouse is hovered over it long enough.[1]
Like the other drones, the Ground AntiTank Drone will be limited by a battery, which will drain when the user fires or moves. Unlocked at level 21.
