The Fuel Rod Shade Turret, also known as the anti-vehicle Shade, is a variant of the regular Shade Turret that made its debut in Halo: Reach. It is only seen in the missions Tip of the Spear where they protect the area where you first start out as well as the base of Spire One and in New Alexandria where they defend Club Errera. Also, one appears in The Pillar Of Autumn when playing on the Legendary difficulty.
The turret fires rounds similar to those fired by the Anti-Air Wraith. It is physically identical to the Anti-Air Shade save for its green coloration and lack of a shield. The Fuel Rod Shade's pilot is also seen and is capable of being killed and the Turret manned and fired unlike the Anti-Air Shade which cannot be manned.
