Long Description

The Warden is a versatile support vehicle.

If it has repair packs and fuel it can automatically repair vehicles and structures within it's range. It priorities entities with the lowest health % first.

It automatically collects ground items within a large area which is useful for collecting alien loot or accidental item overflows.

It has a medium range high intensity radar. This allows you to get real time surveillance around the warden in a larger area than a stationary radar, but it cannot reveal more distant terrain the way a stationary radar does.

The Electro Bolter gun attached to the radar turret can fire Electroshock Pulses which are designed to stun and immobilise biological enemies in an area.

If AAI Programmable Vehicles is also installed the Warden acts like a Hauler but with a larger transfer range. The Warden is slower than the Hauler so is not ideal at hauling, but does make a good mobile depot, a central drop-off point for fuel and ammo to keep a vehicle formation going.
