The Dragonfly is a Chinese support drone used to immobilize enemy vehicles, opening them up for Chinese tanks to destroy.

Description

One of the Chinese army's most glaring weaknesses is their lack of mobility. In order to solve this oversight, a radical approach was taken. Instead of developing new engines for all Chinese vehicles, a flying drone was created with the sole purpose of slowing enemy tanks to a halt.

The Dragonfly proves once again that Chinese EMP weaponry and slow but extremely powerful tanks make a devastating combination. A single Dragonfly is enough to instantly render almost any enemy unit incapable of firing or moving. Additionally, when placed nearby a radar structure, this unit will render the connection obsolete. The Dragonfly, much like its namesake, is easily swatted out of the air by anti-aircraft units due to its paper thin armor and lack of any other weapons.

Overview

Appearances

  • In Dragonstorm, the Tech Secret Lab will unlock access to Dragonflies when it's captured by the player.
  • Rashidi has a limited number of Dragonflies alongside some other Chinese equipment at his disposal in Obsidian Sands. The Dragonflies are seen near his palace. It's unknown exactly how he procured these Chinese units - Yuri suspects a cooperation between him and China in his debriefing to the Proselyte.

Assessment

Pros

  • Can disable a single target using EMP.
  • Fast and mobile.
  • When close to an enemy radar structure, it disables enemy radar temporarily.
  • Some amphibious vehicles can be sunk when they are over water using its EMP weapon. Examples are Kappa TankRobot TankMagnetron and amphibious transports.
  • Can disable grounded aircraft.

Cons

  • Lightly armored.
  • Easily destroyed by anti-aircraft fire.
  • Cannot affect multiple targets.
  • Cannot deal damage to hostiles.
  • Useless against structures and most infantry.
