The S.H.I.E.L.D. is an advanced multipurpose anti-ground and anti-helicopter heavy infantry.
Used by Task Force Talon's elite soldiers, the S.H.I.E.L.D. unit itself is a robotic exoskeleton designed to support carrying a heavy machine gun as well as a fast anti-tank missile launcher and Kevlar armor to resist light missiles and shells.

The S.H.I.E.L.D. is a medium unit that pushes the true capabilities of infantry. Its suit can stand up to some punishment of heavy caliber fire.
Its light gatling gun is a pure anti-infantry weapon that can also easily engage helicopters. Meanwhile its fast-firing missile launcher mode can quickly make light work of vehicles, tanks and buildings. The S.H.I.E.L.D. unit can be upgraded with millimetric radar for stealth detection which further augments their scouting ability.
The S.H.I.E.L.D. as both a bio and a mechanical unit, has a unique trait of being able to have its lost health replenished by both medavac healing units / structures as well as a vehicle-repairing units. That means it can be healed not only by medavacs, the hospital and the Nanowave Healing Center, but also by units and structures that repair vehicles like the Repair FAT-V and the USA's repair depot.

Effective versus infantry and helicopters.
All S.H.I.E.L.Ds get a millimetric wave radar providing them with stealth detection capability.
