Defensive Tank

Sent by: Tyson
House: Ordos
Name: Defensive Tank
Abilities: The Defensive Tank is very similar to the Combat Tank, though, it is a bit slower and carries less firepower. The advantage of this tank is it's excellent armor, superior to all but a Devastator's. The Tank can be used for base defense as if it were a mobile cannon turret however the most effective purpose for this unit would be to use them to defend certain areas on the map like bottlenecks and spice fields. Although they may be unable to destroy a force that tries to attack them they will be able to survive long enough for reinforcements to arrive, thus, preventing the enemy to pass. Also, when used in the vanguard of a siege army it can keep base defenders busy as units with longer range and firepower take out key structures. The Defensive Tank is in itself fairly inexpensive; however, should be used in numbers and be repaired after each major skirmish to keep it's effectiveness.
Appearance: It looks a little like a Bradley Fighting Vehicle.
Other Info: I noticed that in many RTS games, unit firepower or speed seems to usually take a precedence over armor. The Defensive Tank (for lack of a better term) would round this out and provide the game with new tactics. It may even, if used properly, cancel out the effects of the dreaded tank rush.
