The Chaingunner is unlocked with the gun turret and has mostly the same stats. It does not aim to be much more than a gun turret on tracks, but that is more than enough for a combat vehicle available so early in the game. It can make short work of early biters, but will struggle on it’s own against Big and Behemoth biters.
With AAI Programmable Vehicles you can have squads of Chaingunners form mobile defensive lines or send an army of them into an enemy base.
