Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

A powerful and mobile MBT, the MBT-70 focuses on providing a knockout blow while remaining mobile on the battlefield. With a powerful 152mm cannon that can devastate enemy tanks, it has the mobility to easily push a flank. But with mediocre armor and a long reload time, the MBT-70 should be teamed up with another MBT when possible, to help mitigate its weaknesses.

History[edit | edit source]

This main battle tank was created as part of a joint venture between the United States and German governments to develop a comparable vehicle to the T-54 and T-55. Developed during the 1960's, the project produced a vehicle equipped with advanced technology as well as an ultra-low profile. Although the vehicle did not enter production, it is considered the grandfather of the Leopard 2 and M1 Abrams.
