In-game description

The T8 “Gemini” (also known as a RPG Armored Car or RPGAC) is a Colonial anti-armor Armored Car equipped with twin RPG launchers.

General Info


The T8 “Gemini” houses a crew of two soldiers:

  • Driver (Seat 1)
    • Controls the movement of the vehicle, and can see the remaining fuel in the vehicle
    • Activates horn sound with LMB
  • Gunner (Seat 2)
    • Controls the turret rotation and the reloading and firing of the twin RPG launchers


The T8 “Gemini” is equipped with one main armament:

  • Twin RPG Launchers
    • Mounted on a turret (can rotate 360 degrees, turns 45° per second)
    • Ammo Used: RPG
    • Reload Duration: 5.5 seconds per projectile
    • Range: 40 meters
    • Fire Rate: 8.5 per minute (reloading after each shot); Salvo of 2 in 1.5 seconds
    • Magazine Size: 2


It has a dedicated ammo slot that can hold 12 RPGs.

Health & Armor

The T8 “Gemini” has 1000 HP and is disabled under 30% health. It has "Light Armor" resistance: it can soak small arms fire and shrapnel, and it is immune to Flamethrowers. But it won't last long when faced with 12.7mm machine guns, heavy explosives, or anti-tank weaponry.
It has Tank Armor. With it, in best case scenario, penetrating projectiles only have a 85% chance of penetrating and doing damage. That chance goes up quickly if the armor is worn or if it is shot from up close, or on the side or rear from a direct angle, or with ammo that has penetration bonuses.
It takes 115 Basic Materials to fully repair it from 1% to 100% health with a Hammer. Its health and Tank Armor can be instantly repaired at a Garage for 100 Basic Materials.

Storage & Transport

The T8 “Gemini” can be stored in a Storage Depot, Seaport or Storage Ship.

It can be packaged into a small Shippable and transported by any Shipping Vehicle (Crane, Flatbed Truck, Barge, Freighter, Storage Ship, Landing Ships, Flatbed Car, or Large Crane).


The T8 “Gemini”, like all wheeled armored cars, is a lightly armored car solely designed to combat enemy structures and vehicles. In terms of mobility, it has mediocre off-road speed and relatively fast on-road speed, which makes it limited to where it can effectively fight. Along with its slow-turning turret, it is better to stay on roads so the crew can react faster if they're being flanked. Additionally, due to its low health, a single anti-tank mine will nearly destroy it.

Due to having RPG Launchers that must be individually reloaded, the T8 “Gemini” relies on burst damage (i.e. firing in quick succession) in order to do maximum damage. It is highly recommended that the Gunner reloads both RPG Launchers before engaging in combat. The RPG is a slow-moving projectile and thus travel time must be taken into account when shooting at moving targets.

AC Effectiveness over the Course of the War
Similar to all armored cars, as soon as heavier anti-armor weapons become more common, (such as anti-tank rifles) the T8 “Gemini” loses most of its relevance on the front line, as they will quickly be destroyed, as longer ranged weapons prevent the crew from reacting fast enough before being destroyed. However, due to its armament, it is still a formidable opponent when operated by a competent crew.

Standard Equipment Loadout
Like with every other armored vehicle, the crew should ALWAYS equip themselves with a Gas Mask and multiple Filters to avoid dying to Gas Grenades. Additionally, they should bring a Hammer and Basic Materials to repair the tank. These tactics can be buffed by wearing either a Tank Uniform or an Engineer Uniform.

Depending on when the crew fields this Armored Car, these equipment may not be unlocked. If they are unlocked, the crew should equip them so they are not easily killed in combat.


  • The word, "Gemini", in Latin translates to "Twins"
    • Commonly, Castor and Pollux, two figures in Greek and Roman mythology, are referred to as the Gemini
