OverviewEdit

The Longhorn is your Generic Medium Tank. Effective against enemy armor, and powerfull in large numbers. The mainline as well as the linebacker are roles the Longhorn can fill quite effectively. The Longhorn provides respectable ground-based firepower at a far lower cost than the Goliath. Their main weaknesses are their slow reaction and movement speed, and their lack of Anti-Air capabilities, but the latter is usually overcome by superior numbers.

A tank's role in combat is pretty self-explanatory. Their job is to dish out as well as take massive quantities of damage, even when attacked from the rear, a tank will take a decent amount of time to destroy. For this reason is it effective to simply mass a large quantity of Tanks, and send them directly to the nearest outpost, or even to the enemy fortress for a hard-to-counter win.

TriviaEdit

  • During the Alpha version, it was called a Medium Tank.
