My.com and Obsidian Entertainment are rolling out another heavy hitter for its upcoming tank-battler Armored Warfare. Today’s entry is the M551 Sheridan Light Tank, a nimble little number sporting a huge gun, a great choice if you prefer hit-and-run tactics to static engagements.
The Sheridan packs a punch, sporting a 152mm gun-launcher — and no, that doesn’t mean it launches guns — and gets around quickly, reaching a top speed of 70 mph. The price for all that speed and firepower is armor; the Sheridan’s relatively thin armor makes it vulnerable to even the lightest-penetrating shells, so staying on the move is essential to survival.
