Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

With a powerful four shot clip and strong frontal armor, the Merkava IID is a well armored vehicle capable of shooting a burst of fire into an enemy and ducking back into cover while reloading. This versatile clip also has the capability to fire both ATGMs and standard rounds. The Merkava is a capable brawler and spearhead thanks to its well sloped frontal armor, turret thickness, and powerful burst damage.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]
