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

MBT Mk5 is a level 13 standard Heavy Cavalry unlocked in Information Age. Its predecessor is MBT Mk4. It is researched in level 14 Armory.

General Information[]

  • MBT Mk5 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 development process for the British Challenger 2 main battle tank did not look promising. Political motives had favored the domestic proposal from Vickers Defence Systems over arguably superior foreign models. The design shared nearly nothing with the Challenger 1 despite the old tank's stellar performance in the Gulf War. It is almost the only modern MBT to mount a rifled main gun, and it took four years to enter service after production began in 1994. In spite of all this, the Challenger 2 turned out to be one of the world's finest tanks.

Dorchester composite armor, an evolution of the Chobham type, is the most renowned feature of the vehicle. Only two have even been damaged in combat. One was lost due to friendly fire from another Challenger 2, while a second took a freak shot to the belly which caused several injuries. Its main criticism aside from a slightly underpowered engine is just a lack of upgrades over time compared to its contemporaries. The British have no plans to replace their fleet, although the one foreign operator, Oman, may soon switch to Korean K2 Black Panthers.

Attacking Strategies[]

  • MBT Mk5 has a lot of health but is slow and has low attack power, so use it in groups.
  • MBT Mk5 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 Mk5 and a Wall Breacher. When attacking, deploy your Wall Breacher and wait till it destroys the necessary walls. Then, deploy all your MBT Mk5 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 Mk5 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[]

  • MBT Mk5 is a good alliance troop due to its high health; making it longer to kill them.
  • MBT Mk5 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.
