The Shadow Tank is a stealth main battle tank deployed by the Asia-Pacific Alliance.

Deployment tactics[edit | edit source]

The Shadow Tank is fast, hard hitting and can be used for a variety of combat maneuvers. Given its passive stealth ability, the tank can be used to safely scout locations on the map and take down unguarded enemy supply depots or oil wells.

In addition to the passive stealth, the Shadow Tank has the Particle Accelerator ability. The Particle Accelerator ability allows for the Shadow Tank to fire a single target, high damage shot at the expense of forcibly removing the Shadow Tank's stealth for a limited amount of time. This can be used to snipe down high value targets, such as Artillery units, before commanders engage with the rest of their army.

The Shadow Tank enables generals to bait out enemies as they can mix them into a normal force and enemies who believe they out number your force suddenly find themselves outnumbered. Additionally, the Shadow Tanks are excellent at cleaning up enemy forces as you can safely chase down enemies without them realizing they are being followed.
