The Al-Hussein Hybrid is a tier 8 Main Battle Tank originating from Jordan, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the Challenger 1 and unlocks a tier 9 Unlock Token, which can be used on the BMPT-72 Terminator 2, M8 Thunderbolt II, T-90MS, and FV4034 Challenger 2.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy Armor : this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits.
  • High Caliber : the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

This tank is essentially a poor man's challenger, with a weaker lower plate and worse DPM than that of its predecessor. Although this tank is quicker than the tier 7 challenger it is essentially a challenger 1 with worse armor packages that are compensated by a slightly better acceleration, ERA system, HEAT-MP rounds and higher penetration for the tier than the challenger 1.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros:[edit | edit source]

  • Strong Armour
  • Good 120mm gun with high penetration
  • High amount of hitpoints for a tier 8
  • APS on a Challenger 1
  • HEAT-MP round is very effective against thin armor.

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Rather slow and cumbersome
  • Longer reload.
  • Slow to turn, so tanks can easily flank its side.
  • Essentially an up tiered challenger 1 missing the ERA Mk.III armor package on the lower front plate.
