The SPHINX is a tier 10 Armored Fighting Vehicle originating from France, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked with a tier 10 Unlock Token, and is the end of the Fire Support Vehicles line.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Subtle movement: moving on a low speed doesn't reduce your camouflage factor.
  • Designated target: vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within line of sight and vision range. Designated targets are called out and takes increased damage.
  • Recon package: this vehicle's recon package provides an improved vision range when stationary.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

With a powerful 40mm autocannon and dual ATGM launchers, the SPHINX is a mobile sniper capable of doing heavy damage to unsuspecting targets and relocating to avoid counterattacks. With little to no effective armor against large caliber tank shells, the SPHINX relies on its camo rating and mobility to survive against its opponents.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent camouflage rating
  • Very good mobility
  • Extremely good depression - can shoot itself in the foot
  • Great spotting capabilities
  • Devastating burst damage with ATGM launcher. Quick reload for an ATGM pod. Great penetration on the missiles.

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Negligible armor, despite the cage around the cabin
  • 40mm autocannon is inaccurate at medium to long range. Damage output is surprisingly low for an autocannon.
  • Needs a lot of practice to get used to the control on sharp turns. Can get bouncy and easily trip.

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As the SPHINX is all about firepower and mobility, upgrades should be accordingly focused. For mobility, upgrading to the Improved Wheels and Improved Suspension will improve between-position mobility, while firepower upgrades like the Improved Thermal Sight will increase damage output.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Sabrina Washington, to improve the camo rating, view range, and crew stats
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation
