The Tank is arguably the best unit in the game. It has high damage, high health, and long range. Its only downsides are that it it very slow to move, and the fact that it takes 2 Energy from your Gunboat to be able to deploy it to the field of battle.

Tips and Tactics

The Tank is expensive in both resources and Gunboat energy to deploy, and as such, you will probably find yourself having to use it sparingly. When combined with Heavies, and if deployed in any great numbers, your armies should be basically unstoppable.

Bear in mind that Tanks are weak against Cannons, Boom Cannons and Boom Mines. Each of these three defensive structures receives a bonus when facing Tanks. Against everything else, you should find the Tanks vastly superior.

You should also consider using Medics in conjunction with Tanks - due to the incredibly high health that they boast, your Medics should be able to follow behind the Tanks healing them as they go without suffering many losses.

In short, an army with lots of Tanks shouldn't come up against too many difficult enemies.
