Light transport vehicle that can tow heavy weapon, reinforce and heal nearby infantry squads. Can be damaged by small-arms.

The 2.5-Tonne Medical Truck is a DAK light vehicle unit. In skirmishes it is available from the . Alternatively, a regular can also be converted into this unit at a cost of Munitions.

As with all other utility trucks, it is capable of transporting infantry, reinforcing squads, tow heavy weapons, and re-crew abandoned weapons.

This unit serves as the primary healing source for the DAK, especially as the DAK is the only faction that lacks a healing structure that can be constructed. By default, it passively heals nearby friendly infantry when stationary and out of combat, and is capable of reinforcing nearby squads too. It also has the ability to recrew weapons, and at veterancy level 1 it gains a new passive called Field Supplies that grants combat bonuses to nearby infantry.

While it is a mobile unit, the truck is usually best kept inside the base in order to heal all units that retreat. This allows it not only maximum safety, but efficiently allows for faster healing and reinforcing. Later on, if the player is willing to deal with the extra micromanagement, it can be useful to pull it onto the field to allow for forward reinforcing/healing, as well as recrewing abandoned weapons when opportunities arise. If it can be kept on the frontline safely while gaining veterancy experience, it can be rewarding thanks to buffing your units with the Field Supplies passive.

With no weapons at all and low durability, it is vulnerable to being destroyed quite quickly if caught out. As such, care must be taken if it is used on the field, and quick reactions are a must if the opponent decides to dive into the HQ territory with a vehicle intending to destroy the medical truck.

This unit does not count as a vehicle for the purposes of Combined Arms and Vehicle Awareness.
