Entering the war immediately,`thousands of Riptides were deployed and variants of the design have seen almost every role that can be imagined. The primary variation, the D-Class Combat Riptides, carry a squad of soldiers in an armoured compartment while supporting them with a heavy machine gun.

The D1s were rushed into combat, and were typically armed with Browning .50 caliber heavy machine guns taken from decommissioned Retriever APCs, while the D2s were equipped with British manufactured ''"Brushclearer"'' 20mm miniguns, which were faster firing but lacked the stopping power of the D1. In addition, a special launcher on the D2 allowed torpedoes to be launched into combat while over water, allowing Riptides to clear obstructions while moving in for an amphibious assault. This hidden weapon proved surprisingly deadly, leading to ad hoc formations of D2 Riptides being refitted with dedicated naval torpedoes and used to surprising effectiveness as aquatic raiders.

On land, Riptides proved themselves worth successors to both the Retriever APC and the Ranger Scout Car, engaging Soviet infantry and the hated Sickle patrols in hundreds of skirmishes while carrying the Peacekeeper divisions into the heart of combat. Their armour and bulletproof cushions providing more than enough protection, the Riptide would lead the charge, and (unsurprisingly) proved to be effective over all terrain. At Normandy they led the amphibious assault on Fortress Europe, speeding onto the shores ahead of the Assault Destroyers and Landers and bouncing Soviet defenders from their clifftop bunkers. In Paris they glided effortlessly down narrow streets chasing the fleeing Soviet forces, and in Berlin they engaged the Soviets in vicious street-to-street fighting, forcing back Sickles and Scythes to deposit infantry behind enemy positions.
