Abilities

Transform into a stationary turret with 200 hp when destroyed

The Spartan tank was the main battle tank used by the GDI Defense Class during the Ascension Conflict.

Background[edit | edit source]

Essentially a gun on treads, the Spartan’s armor makes it a perfect meat shield while providing ranged support. Once “destroyed,” it becomes a full-health, repairable turret, similar to the guardian cannon from the last war.

In-game[edit | edit source]

Essentially a turret on tracks, the Spartan Tank is armed with a high-powered cannon and is rather slow moving. It has less health than contemporary crewed battle tanks, such as the Hunter, the Sheppard, or the Nod Avenger, but possesses equivocal firepower - allowing it to still trade blows effectively.

Moreover, once it reaches 0 health - it transforms into a stationary turret with 200 hp, equipped with Heavy armor: trading its mobility for vastly increased survivability. Its cannon is good against Medium-type armour, found on similarly armored vehicles such as tanks, but is less effective against heavier armour and light units.

In its mobile form, the Spartan Tank has Medium-type armour that is, itself—weak against tank cannons. However, in its turret form, its armor type is switched to Heavy armour - which is weak only against lasers and other energy weapons.

The "GDI Classical Warfare" achievement can be earned for destroying a Centurion with a Spartan tank.
