Despite being a "tractor", the Frontier Tractor is a Soldier unit type and thus uses the Hospital for healing. Oddly though, it uses the standard vehicle icon instead of light or heavy infantry. Just like its civilian counterpart, it wields a handgun and has a strong melee attack. However, the revolver attack pattern is not 3x2 at one go, but 1 shot that can target a space in a 5x2 area.
This unit only requires the player to be level 32 but the frontier recruitment center requires the player to be level 37.
In attacking, using the higher damage, the longer ranged revolver may be the most common thing this unit sees. The Tractor Beam would be used for if the player wants to take a gamble if the player wants to the enemy. It also has better offense, hence a good option against fast units like Dustwalkers.
