A tank is a fully tracked armored fighting vehicle designed for speed, firepower and shock effect. The tank is currently the premier ground weapon, capable of breakthrough and exploitation on the modern battlefield.
A tank is equipped with a primary weapon system consisting of a large caliber main gun mounted in a fully traversable turret. Secondary armament usually consists of multiple light machine guns for infantry threats, and some tanks are equipped with a heavy machine gun for use against light armored threats.
All of the tanks can be fitted with mine ploughs or rollers for the reduction of obstacles. Although these interfere somewhat with mobility, especially the heavier roller, they can protect the vehicle to a limited extent from mines, and additionally against direct fire against the lower front hull.
