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 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, in New Alexandria where they defend Club Errera, and in The Package (level) after you pass the area with 3 Ghosts, usually driving a Scorpion. 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 can be manned and fired unlike the Anti-Air Shade which cannot be manned.

This turret can kill a Spartan in around two blasts, but is easily destroyed when employing the use of the M319 Individual Grenade Launcher, which is a starting weapon for Tip of The Spear. The Grenade Launcher should be used to knock the turret out of operation and a different weapon should be used to finish off the gunner.
