|— In-game decription|
The PL-1 "Phalanx" is a Relic Vehicle variant of an Assault Tank with two 40mm cannons on either side of the hull and can be built in a Garage for 600 Relic Materials. The Phalanx has, despite it's in-game description, relatively light armor. This is compensated by it's surprising durability making the Phalanx a good tank to lead a charge or "tank" shots for other vehicles.
The tank's shape suggests it could be inspired by the German World War I A7V Tank.
- The Phalanx is not a fast or nimble tank. Keep this in mind when engaging other vehicles and especially infantry as it is easy to get overwhelmed.
- The cannons have traversal arc of about 150 degrees. This means that there's a dead zone behind the tank that should be kept in mind when fighting more agile vehicles such as light tanks or infantry.
- The two cannons require plenty of ammo to be carried; 30-40 for each.
- The 4 person crew coupled with the Phalanx's high durability means it can be used effectively to lead assaults and charges, absorb shots, pull back and repair quickly.
