The Helghast Assault Boat is a vessel that is able to land squads of Helghast troops, and is used in waterborne invasions. It is outfitted with a cargo bay at the front which forms a ramp that the soldiers can use to run down onto their designated landing zones. The Assault Boat carries a turret with two heavy machine guns to support the six infantry troopers it holds. Both the vessel and turret are well-protected to maximize the chances of landing the troops without significant casualties.
Helghast Assault Boats in Killzone 2, the Helghast Assault Boat is only scenery in the first level of the campaign, Corinth River, and on the new map Beach Head, part of the Flash and Thunder DLC Pack.
