Tank, Steam


A steam tank is powered by a powerful oil burning engine. This gigantic war machine is designed to plow through any obstacles in its way. It’s commonly equipped with a single siege cannon in the prow and four swivel guns to protect is sides and rear, but some models carry instead rocket racks for anti-air or rotary guns for anti-infantry. The ominous black plume expelled by its substantial smoke stack foreshadows the future funeral fires of its foes.
