Historical Description[]

Great Britain's main battle tank has been the FV4034 Challenger 2 since roughly 1998. It is equipped with a 120mm L30A1 Tank Gun, the successor to the Challenger 1’s L11 gun. The new cannon has a rifled barrel, similar to most small arms rifles. This type of barrel is beneficial because the British Army uses high explosive squash head rounds, which are intended for ranges up to 8 kilometers.

The Challenger 2 also is also equipped with the L94A1, a 7.62mm chain gun. This weapon is ideal for supportive roles and cover fire for allies arriving on foot. It also excels at suppressing enemy anti-vehicle ground troops.

Attacking Strategies[]

  • The Spearhead AMX-13 Tank has a lot of health but is slow and has low attack power, so use it in groups
  • The Spearhead AMX-13 Tank 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 Spearhead AMX-13 Tank and a Wall Breacher. When attacking, deploy your Wall Breacher and wait till it destroys the necessary walls. Then, deploy all your Spearhead AMX-13 Tank 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
  • The Spearhead AMX-13 Tank would ignore defensive troops and would pursue their targets which are defensive buildings. However, if a defensive troop attacks it, the Spearhead AMX-13 Tank 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
