The Falcon is GDI's fast scout, hit-and-run attack unit. It is the only GDI ground vehicle capable of detecting stealth units (with the exception of the Orca Rig when deployed).

Tiberium EssenceEdit

The Falcon came into service during the Third Tiberium War. It was the GDI's response to Nod's advances in stealth technology. Its hover drive allows fast travel on most terrains, as well as granting it the ability to traverse across large bodies of water, similar to the Tempest MLRS. Its rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) launcher works on almost the same basis as the RPG Tower, but is modified to be mounted on a mobile platform; it can also be upgraded with Shockwave EMP Warheads, which can temporarily disable vehicles and structures with EMP and grant an area-of-effect damage, allowing it to devastate squads of light infantry. This, coupled with its stealth detection ability, makes it excel at hunting down Nod Harvesters. After being upgraded, it can also launch Sensor Pods on the ground to reveal stealthed enemy units in a large radius.


  • In v1.4, the Falcon is not used by most players because of its serious pathfinding issues.
  • The Falcon has the voice of Slingshot AA vehicle from C&C3 Kane's Wrath, both of which are hover vehicles.
