The Terminator is a Russian fire support vehicle, built on the hull of a T-90 tank. Its main purpose is to accompany tank units in urban areas and protect them against enemy infantry. To do that, the vehicle is armed with two 30mm cannons, capable of laying down suppressive fire in a split second. Additionally, the vehicle is equipped with four guided missile launchers, making it a deadly opponent.
  • Tier: 6
  • Class: Light Tank
The Expeditionary Tank was an American attempt to create a high-tech, multi-purpose light fire support vehicle with an unmanned turret, capable of being carried by transport planes to its destination. Fast and agile, it was to enhance the firepower of American rapid deployment. Despite its advanced design, the prototype was never mass-produced.
