“These heavily-armored units will attack defensive buildings, distracting them at close range while your other troops do the damage.”

Challenger 1 is a level 12 standard Heavy Cavalry unlocked in Digital Age. Its predecessor is MBT Mk3. It is researched in level 13 Armory.

General Information[]

  • MBT Mk4 is the armored front runners among all troops. Its default behavior is to seek and destroy defenses. After all the defenses are gone it will behave like a heavy infantry troop. With a large amount of hit points, it can endure more than any other troop of its age, as well as dealing a lot of damage before falling. However, its disadvantages are that it has low damage and can be killed easily by Ballista Towers, Cannon Towers or Anti-Tank Guns.

Historical Description[]

The British Centurion main battle tank that rolled off the line at the end of World War II helped to obsolete the distinction between light, medium, and heavy tanks. Its successor, the Chieftain, was also well received but somewhat lacking in mobility. Having purchased hundreds of Chieftains, the shah of Iran agreed to work with the British on producing a faster version called the Shir. His order was canceled after the Iranian Revolution in 1979, but development went on and resulted four years later in a new tank dubbed the Challenger 1.

Superior horsepower allowed faster movement than the Chieftain despite adding six tons of weight. A secret composite called Chobham armor that it shared with the American M1 Abrams gave excellent protection, and its unusual rifled main gun provided great accuracy at extremne range. These qualities helped avoid any losses during the Gulf War while securing 300 tank kills, including the longest one ever at a distance of nearly 3 miles. Ultimately the UK replaced the Challenger 1 with the all-new Challenger 2 and sold off most of their inventory to Jordan.

Attacking Strategies[]

  • MBT Mk4 has a lot of health but is slow and has low attack power, so use it in groups.
  • MBT Mk4 is weak against many defenses grouped together.
  • When pushing for trophies, you would need to destroy the Town Center or City Center. In many bases, the town center would be in the center of the base. First, train up an army of MBT Mk4 and a Wall Breacher. When attacking, deploy your Wall Breacher and wait till it destroys the necessary walls. Then, deploy all your MBT Mk4 units in the areas which the City Center is more close to. If there are a few defenses blocking the way, destroy them. Then rally your units to destroy the Town Center or City Center.
  • MBT Mk4 would ignore defensive troops and would pursue their targets which are defensive buildings. However, if a defensive troop attacks it, the MBT Mk4 will attack back until the defensive troop is killed; thus making it distracted. Try to use and deploy Ranged Infantry or Heavy Infantry after deploying the units to eliminate the defensive troops.

Defensive Strategies Edit[]

  • MBT Mk4 is a good alliance troop due to its high health; making it longer to kill them.
  • MBT Mk4 units are spawned by Stable or Tank Depot. With their high health, they are good to slow down the enemies advance.
  • The Reinforcements technology in the Library spawns Main the units in the forest and they attack troops of the attacker.
