The AT-18 is a second generation main battle tank, and over 500 were built, of which 300 survive. The AT-18 is expected to be phased out by the newer AT-20 by 2020.
Featuring a 1100 hp twin-turbocharged liquid cooled diesel engine, and had a top speed of 80 mph on asphant. The AT-18 was relatively lacking in armour compared to other second generation tanks, but it's speed and firepower makes up for it. It was designed to tackle the marshy wetlands of the rainforest, as well as the plainlands where most of the battles of the Third Altivebrian Civil War were fought. It had an operational range of 800 km (500 miles) and like it's successor, was engineered specifically for ease of repair and survivability.
