Infantry Support Vehicles include troop transport trucks, halftracks and mobile anti-aircraft guns. It is important to note that they can only be deployed on Access Points (for attackers) and Mission Objectives (for defenders). They become available to deploy when a Mechanized Infantry Assault Team is present on the battlefield.
Transport trucks and halftracks act as mobile deployment points, which can be a significant tactical advantage, when used wisely. Mobile AA guns, on the other hand, can only be spawned on in the first few seconds of activity (like Terrain Vehicles). This class of vehicles being more costly than Terrain Vehicles, they can only be deployed in more limited numbers, so it is always a good idea to coordinate with your team before using them.
Infantry Support Vehicles are lightly armored, which makes them vulnerable to enemy tanks or anti-tank weapons. They should therefore ideally be escorted and defended by friendly infantry or armored vehicles for optimal efficiency. Placing them in tactical positions (ex. hidden near Mission Objectives) can create great attack opportunities and may speed up victory significantly.
