The Tac-Com Vehicle was a large COG tactical communications vehicle whose main purpose is to locate the whereabouts of Gears and other COG units in a battlefield. Although they have some superficial similarities with an Armadillo, Tac-Com Vehicles are two to three times the size. As its name suggests, these vehicles provide Gears with Tac-Coms and supports them via increasing their audio range for these devices. It can also allow Tac-Com Tablets to insert itself and transfer information if needed.
As such, Tac-Com Vehicles are of massive logistical importance for the Coalition of Ordered Governments Army. To enable such broad frequencies for increase communications, Tac-Com Vehicles are armed primarily with a large communication relay dish and a map console to locate military units.
Assassination of Ukkon
One year after Emergence Day and after surviving the Hammer of Dawn Strikes, Sgt. Gabriel Diaz and Major Sid Redburn searched for Echo-Five to bolster up their forces. On their way, they met up with the remnants of Echo-Five, Marcella and Tyrone.
After a brief battle with Locust scouting parties, the team ventured on-board a Tac-Com Vehicle to locate the whereabouts of the rest of Echo-Five which were ambushed much earlier. Unfortunately, Marcella and Tyrone would later found out that they were the only survivors of their team who succumbed to Torture Pods.
