The Gattling tank was a light anti-infantry vehicle employed by Yuri's army during the Psychic Dominator Disaster.

Background

These light vehicles are very effective at mowing down both Soviet and Allied infantry quickly and also serve as an air defense unit. Although they can do damage some to lighter vehicles, such as Allied IFVs, and some lighter tanks as well, they were not nearly as effective against heavier tanks, such as Apocalypse tanks or Grizzly tanks.

The Gattling tank was erased after the Soviets meddled with the space time continuum.

The idea behind the Gattling tank's weaponry, however, seems to have been quantity, not quality. Although, this is not really the case, as the Gattling Tank boasts both incredible firepower and a minimal cost. The longer a Gattling tank fires, the faster the gattling guns spin. Eventually, the sheer number of bullets flying through the air shred through almost anything, regardless of how durable it is.

They are also very inexpensive, and large numbers of them are available to Yuri's forces for this reason. Large groups of Gattling tanks are quite a formidable enemy, as massive volumes of fire negated armour and a large enough group of these vehicles effectively had no weakness, except long-range ships and artillery units. However, since they can shoot down the aircraft from aircraft carriers, and the missiles of a Dreadnought, Boomer submarine and V3 launcher, even this was not much of a vulnerability. In addition, Gattling tanks are fairly fast and cheap, allowing them to be massed with a minimal cost and labour.

Gattling tanks can also be placed into a Tank bunker for additional protection. Interestingly, doing so made them identical in function, armour, and cost to a gattling cannon, although it does not consume power but this does take up more space.

Assessment

Pros

  • Fastest attack rate of all basic anti-infantry vehicles.
  • Cheap and fast.
  • Rapidly kills infantry.
  • Very capable of dealing with missiles.
  • Increases damage as it fires continuously. This speed increases when the Gattling tank is elite.
  • Nearly unstoppable in large numbers.

Cons

  • Weakly armoured.
  • Not usually vulnerable to anti-vehicle units.
  • Heavy tanks pose a serious threat.
  • Vulnerable to hit and run attacks.
  • Weak in small numbers
