The Hatchling is a CORE 3rd-party unit created by TA-SECT as part of the Tortoise Pack. It is a small scout Tortoise that is able to move faster than other Tortoises in the pack, and is also more durable than the average scout unit. It can be used to scout ahead to allow other units to travel to their destination safely. A trait it shares with the other Tortoise units is its ability to submerge underwater, allowing it to travel from island to island undetected (providing the enemy doesn't have any submarines, Sonar Stations, or any other units with a sonar at hand). There is no ARM counterpart to this unit.


AppearanceEdit

The Hatchling has four small legs on top of a small 16-sided, dark-grey shell. It also has a small silver head along with a stub-like tail. Along with that, it also has a small mounted laser turret on top that it uses to defend itself from enemy units.

TacticsEdit

Since it is a small scout unit, the player can use it to scout out enemy base locations so that attack forces can be made to destroy the target base. Also they can be used as ambush units as their ability to move underwater allows them to be undetected, thus allowing small guerilla attacks that stall the enemy while the player can create an attack force. Its weapon is also effective at taking out low-level resource structures such as Metal Extractors and Wind Generators.
