Player Recommendations[]

This vehicle is best played as a hull down support vehicle taking cover behind a rock, wreck, hill, or other position where only its well armored turret is exposed to incoming fire. Failing that, it can be a second line MBT capitalizing on firepower and agility, the latter to avoid incoming fire with the help of smoke grenades. The hull is weak and vulnerable, and any hits are best taken on the turret.

History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank (Experimental)Developed: 1980Service: N/AVehicles Built: 1Operators: N/AThe TTB is not a prototype but, as its name suggests, an American test bed for the latest tank development technologies. It was an initial base of the Block III Abrams project, designed to replace the existing Abrams tanks with something capable of defeating any future Soviet tank that was predicted to appear in the 1990s. In its modified Abrams hull, the entire crew of three sat in front (where only the driver would normally be), quite safely hidden behind the thickest armor. Fuel tanks were removed to make place for the extended crew compartment. The crew would use advanced cameras to aim the tank’s weapon systems that were installed in an unmanned turret, located where the standard Abram
