"The EU has created a mobile fortress that can carry several passengers and neutralise infantry resistance in urban areas with deadly efficiency. It’s slow moving but the Goliath can withstand everything except anti-vehicle attacks from the enemy, thanks to its regenerating armour. When you’re in the vehicle you are totally safe from enemy gunfire. As driver, you have a scatter-cannon for short-range use against soldiers and a high-technology anti-vehicle projectile launcher, which homes in on targets with a magnetic signature. There are also two grenadier positions and two 360° machine gun posts. You can also use the Goliath as a mobile spawnpoint and it heals and rearms nearby friendly forces within its supply radius."

— Official Website description.

The A-3 Goliath is an IFV with high survivability, capable of supporting infantry forces. It is only featured in Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike in Conquest Assault Lines game mode.

It can hold a driver and up to four passengers. The driver has an access to a scattergun and a motion mine launcher. These mines are similar to the mines used by the Engineer class, but have their tracking system enabled on launch, and self-detonate after some time. Second and fifth passenger positions operate fast-firing autocannons that are great against infantry and light vehicles and deal splash damage. Positions three and four operate normal machine guns, but cover a very wide area including the vehicle's rear.

The Goliath is incredibly tough—it regenerates hit points thanks to regenerative cells located on the hull and can be repaired normally as well. Even with only one repair cell active, it can withstand a direct Orbital Strike. The repair cells cannot themselves be repaired if they sustain damage, and can be destroyed using anti-vehicle weapons (including the Rorsch Mk-S8 or RDX Demopaks) as objective bonuses.

The front armor is designed to completely absorb damage from II-29 Motion Mines. It has durable side and rear armor, and it takes five hits from explosive weapons to destroy it without its regenerative capability. The Goliath lacks the Active Defense System, unusual for armored vehicles in 2142.

It can be used as a mobile spawn point (unless completely occupied) and it heals and resupplies infantry in its vicinity. The Goliath cannot resupply itself, and depends on Support soldiers or supply drops to restock its offensive battery. It cannot be hijacked by PAC infantry, the only vehicle with this distinction.
