- Drake Operator during battle -
When Sheik Solimaan joined the GLRF, he brought with him one of his favorite and finest battle tanks built within Soviet History, the T-80 "Drake" Main Battle Tank. This battle tank is 50 years old and outdated, but it can still take on American M1 Abrams tanks or Chinese Type-99 Dragoon tanks with its 125mm Smoothbore Cannon, Whilst being able to take on any infantry with its Coaxial Machine Gun.
Its robust design with no salvaged repairs gives it great defense against other anti-tank weapons, still being able to deal with enemy forces whenever required. When a good oportunity is available, any T-80 Drake operators can purchase a pair of ATGMs to crush enemy vehicles even faster or a set of Smoke Grenade Launchers to confuse enemy units within a designated radious. Most of members of the GLRF wishes to join the Armadillo Cell to take control of this armoured monster.
During the course of the First Eurasian Conflict, the GLA only had a small and limited number of main battle tanks in their forces such as the T-64 Tarantula and T-72 Devils, they also have some stolen tanks from eastern and western enemies in their service. Currently as of now with the second war preparing to begin to get hotter for the Global Liberation Resistance, Prince Kassad realized this shortage and decided to order the Arms Dealers operating in the GLRF to acquire and build Puma Battle Tanks.
It was a great surprise when Sheik Solimaan came to Prince Kassad and offered vast resources and his personal well-equipped White Guard forces to the cause of the GLRF. Kassad accepted his offering, the GLRF had gained a true and heavily armoured main battle tank from the era of the Soviet Union and former Russian Federation, the T-80 "Drake" MBT.

Behind the Scenes
- The T-80 Drake is based on the real-life version of the T-80 tank of the Russian Federation, there will be some possible chances that the drake will feature some abilities like Shockwave's T-80 Scarab Tank.
- Designs for the T-80 will be based on the Scarab Tank from C&C Generals Shockwave, or the tank will be modelled from scratch.
