Light Tanks

Light Tanks

Screaming around the map, causing mischief wherever they can, light tanks are the terrors of the battlefield. Lightly armed and armored, they harass the enemy at every turn rather than confronting them head on. They're often the advanced scouts, the eyes and ears of the team. They run circles around the slow moving behemoths. They're the backfield guardians that keep enemy vehicles from singling out allied artillery. Light tanks are the ninjas that capture the enemy base when they least expect it. Guerrilla tactics are the light tanks' forte, and they revel in keeping the enemy team on the backfoot.
