125 (Nova Covert Ops)
|H1 Flash Welder|
The HERC is a terran frontline infantry unit, equipped with a welding gun and a grapple line. They are specialized to take on waves of light units, and are immune to acidic explosions.
HERCs accompanied the Umojan Protectorate expedition to Jarban Minor. However, the expedition was quickly overrun by the zerg, and most of the researchers were infested. A group of HERCs and War Pigs held out however, and when Agent Nova Terra and her Terran Dominion forces arrived on Jarban Minor they aided her in retrieving terrazine from the planet in exchange for a way off of the planet.
HERCs are a campaign only unit in Nova Covert Ops in the mission Night Terrors. They are immune to the acidic explosions of the volatile infested, and serve as a frontline defender against the waves of infested colonists and infested marines sent at the player. They are built from the HERC compound.
