The Quickshifter can also carry one passenger, but they have to wait until it is fully teleported before disembarking.
With limited funding and delays caused by various unexpected events, the development of the next-gen Allied chrono tank, similar to the one used during the Second Great War, did not go as well as expected. With a majority of resources being allocated to the Paradox Project, it seemed the new tank - capable of chronoshifting anywhere on the battlefield without needing a Chronosphere - would not appear in the Allied arsenal too soon.
The new war against Yuri resulted in interesting developments, however, as the Paradox Project was completed prematurely, and so attention was given to the tank once again. The Quickshifter is the direct successor to the Chrono Tank. With the advanced 'Phalanx' Guided Missile Battery designed after the powerful weapon of the Aegis Cruiser, and with additional surface-to-surface targeting systems, the Quickshifter becomes a dangerous force to be reckoned with. Quickshifters also have a single passenger slot. As with the Chrono Legionnaire, Quickshifters cannot engage enemies until it has fully reformed itself, thus making it vulnerable to counterattack as it reforms. Because of the deadly effects of chronoshifting exposed persons, the passenger cannot exit the Quickshifter until it has fully chronoshifted at its destination.

- According to Atomic_Noodles, the Quickshifter is based from the Chrono Tank from Red Alert 1.
- In version 2.0, there was a similar tank called "Phalanx Tank", accessed by owning both an Allied and Soviet War Factory as well as infiltrating a Soviet Battle Lab. The Phalanx's name is now used for Quickshifter's missile.
