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 some damage  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. Although it does not consume power, it should be noted that it is less powerful than the standard Gattling Cannon base defence. This is because, if one looks closely, the Gattling Cannon has two 6-barrel Cannons while the Gattling Tank only has two 4-barrel Cannons. This gives the Gattling Tank slightly less firepower than the more expensive 6-barrel alternative. 

Assessment

Pros

  • Fastest attack rate of all basic anti-infantry vehicles.
  • Cheap and fast.
  • Rapidly kills infantry.
  • Very capable of dealing with aircrafts and missiles.
  • In desperate situation, 3 to 4 Gattling tanks can gun down a Floating Disc very quickly.
  • It's weapon works best against Kirov airships even when elite.
  • Increases damage as it fires continuously. This speed increases when the Gattling tank is elite.
  • Perfect escorts for other vehicles like Magnetrons.
  • Nearly unstoppable in large numbers.
  • When elite with firepower upgrade, they can easily annihilate entire army of infantry.

Cons

  • Weakly armoured.
  • Vulnerable to anti-vehicle units.
  • Heavy tanks pose a serious threat.
  • Vulnerable to hit and run attacks.
  • Weak in small numbers
  • Overwhelming Terror Drones are still a threat.
