The Chrono Legionnaire is a high tech allied unit who uses chrono technology both as a weapon and as a means of transportation. His armor contains a personal chronosphere which allows him to instantly warp anywhere on the map. After a warp the Chrono Legionnaire requires a few seconds to fully phase in, the duration of this time is directly related to the distance warped, the longer the distance, the loger it takes to phase in. The weapon which he is armed with is unique as it does no actual damage, and that it simply erases the target from history. This can happen instantly, or over the course of about a minute, pending what is being phased out, how many legionnaires are engaging the target and the rank of the legionnaires. While being phased out, the target is invincible, but also frozen. Some commanders have been known to use this on their own buildings in a strategy to protect them from nuclear warheads. These units may also fire from a IFV or a Battle fortress, which is useful for avoiding the risks of being caught phasing in.
