As standard Buzzards proved to be not effective enough in defending the Last Bastion's vast stronghold against the endless threats from the outside, several adjustments were made to its design to create a unit more fitting for the defense operations. The Condor is Last Bastion's enhanced variant of the Buzzard, reinforced with plenty extra armor at the cost of its speed and mobility.
Since the Bastion base is fully capable of deploying the necessary stationary defenses around itself with just the use of ConYards, there was no longer a need for their standard helicopters to carry stun mines around. Instead, the storage space was repurposed to house a powerful microwave blaster, lethal to enemy infantry groups. Due to their lower speed, to make Condors more useful in hit'n'run attacks the blaster is used first before the IHMGs are even activated. The microwave blaster cannot target enemy aircraft, meaning its intended purpose is exclusively crowd control.
