- Avenger reporting for duty

The Avenger is Nod's main battle tank during the events of the Ascension Conflict.

Background

Whilst the Scorpion Mk. I was directly outplaced by Gideon in favor of a more specialized Mk. II version, the role of MBT was taken over by the rugged, box-shaped Avenger.

A true main battle tank, the Avenger is the mainstay of Nod offense-class armor divisions—being crewed with the most dauntless and hardened of the Brotherhood's tank pilots.

Its low profile, sturdy build and compact frame is reminiscent of Second Tiberium War Tick Tanks, but this time, thanks to Nod's advancements in armor technology: the Avenger is able to beat any of its GDI equivalents in a contest of resilience—it has the highest health of any Tier 1 vehicle in service during the Fourth Tiberium War.

The Avenger is equipped with a large-caliber advanced anti-tank cannon, which gives it more than enough firepower to easily dispose of any enemy medium armour: be it TitansWolves or Sheppard Tanks.

In-game

Before the Avatar is available at Tier 3, the Avenger is the only cannon-equipped unit in the Nod Offense Class arsenal, and hence: their only true counter against units with Medium-type armour.

Whilst this ensures its widespread deployment, fortunately for Nod commanders—the Avenger is a very reliable frontline assault tank: its sturdy frame, fearless crew and powerful cannon make it a formidable threat to enemy armor forces.

All Avengers carry a landmine at the rear of the vehicle. When the Avenger is destroyed, the landmine is automatically armed and released: a final contribution to the war effort even after their destruction—denying access to positions that they died defending.

When upgraded with a Blue Tiberium Core, it gains an improved cannon and extra mines to be dropped on death—increasing its firepower and making the act of destroying them an even more foreboding omen for the enemies.

An achievement can be earned if the player uses the Avenger's mines to destroy several units.
