Medium Tanks

Medium Tanks

When your teammates are calling out for rescue, fire support, or holding down the friendly base, yours is the phone that rings. Medium tanks sport a varying mix of armor thickness, weapon output, and speed. The medium tank commander must use his wits to maximize his strengths. Build a 3-medium wolfpack and eliminate heavier combatants. Flank the enemy and weaken enemy footholds. Shift the tide of battle in your team’s favor by spearheading an assault into enemy-held territory. Medium tanks are the vehicles of choice for cavaliering daredevils.
