The Archon Armored Multirole Carrier is a derivative of the original Stryker model used by the United States, designed for more intense combat situations. Now equipped with heavier armor, the Archon is the most durable of IFVs, making it a viable defense option. The additional weight, however, does render it slower than its American cousin, making it less suitable for quick assaults.
The Archon AMC functions as an anti-aircraft, troop carrying and multipurpose combat support vehicle for the European Alliance. Compared to its counterparts, it favors armor over speed, making it more suitable for defensive tactics and infantry protection. One of the primary reasons for using the AMC is due to its Adaptation System as a multipurpose combat support unit. It is extremely versatile and capable of performing a variety of roles, such as vehicle repair, anti-infantry or anti-structure, depending on the loaded infantry unit within.
Loading an Engineer converts the Archon AMC into a mobile repair vehicle, enabling quick field repairs and effectively counters Terror Drones. Multiple Engineer-loaded AMCs can stack their repair effects, restoring the health of friendly vehicles with incredible speed, allowing the unit-under-repair to withstand huge amounts of damage. AMCs are unable to repair aircraft however.
The Sniper-AMC combo is a viable long ranged anti-infantry option. It grants Snipers much needed protection from anti-personnel fire that would normally kill them. It also enhances the mobility and rate of fire of a Sniper. Other useful combinations include Siege Cadres and Navy SEALS. Such infantry would benefit from the extra protection, and to a lesser extent, the extra mobility.
