A heavy battle tank, built after the American M10 Templar Tank and before the TT-125 Apocalypse Tank, the Overlord is China's answer to United States and is also capable of being upgradable to suit multi-role combat and support operations, something that other heavy tanks cannot compete with. With the success of the tank during the First Eurasian Conflict it also have built a series of multi-role companions.

Currently the long going Type-93 Overlord is active in the following factions:

  • Iron Dragon PLA - First operated by China, passed onto the Chinese Royal Guard for homeland defense operations, main combat vehicles such as Warlords & more of its type
  • Robot Empire - Unknown to be either stolen or purchased via black market sources, several blue coloured Overlord tanks have been found engaging peacekeepers and terrorist forces atthe same time

"This is the Overlord, Tank."
- Overlord Operator -

The Type-93 Overlord Heavy Tank is a feared Chinese heavy tank, who serves the roles as base destroyer and heavy assault unit within the Chinese Army since their introduction in 2014.

Heavy armour and well-equipped with the capabilities to acquire additional features such as a Propaganda Speaker, Battle Bunker or maybe a Gatling Cannon if clearance has been given, the Overlord became a symbol of the present heavy tank, on whose base many other heavy tanks were constructed, these included the USA's M10 Templar Tanks or Russian TT-125 Apocalypse tanks.

Production of the Lords

While the Overlord and all its future variants were designed by Shanghai Battle Tanks Inc., the tank was being constructed and assembled far away from Shanghai, in a specialized factory complex in Gansu province in middle China. The location has been a well-kept secret, between SBT and High Command Officers within the Peoples Liberation Army, to this day.

Not even many US spy planes and satellites were able to find its location, nor spies of the GLRF. This adds to the factor of fear of the Overlord, as this secret facility is able to produce significant number of these heavy tanks in short period of time. It is believed that Overlord's heavier cousin Emperor of General Kwai is also produced there, along with many other tanks build on Overlord's chassis.

Available Upgrades

Whilst the Overlord Tank was mostly a powerful anti-tank weapon against enemy units across the field, most of their operators felt they want to add in a bit of scratch onto their tanks; options available can help many tanks after their construction during their combat service.

  • Battle Bunker - This allows infantry to take shelter inside the tank's top part of the turret; bunkers allow soldiers to go across areas whilst being protected. They can also fire out the fireports protecting Overlord as well.
  • Gatling Cannon - Covering the tank from enemy aircraft, on-board Gatling Cannons provides protection for the Overlord from enemy aircraft which fly too close; the cannon can also do good against infantry, mowing them down like a scythe. This upgrade is also available for Emperor Tanks.
  • Speaker Tower - Sometimes, the Overlord Tank can also provide moral support for China's fellow allies and even Red Guardsmen whilst in combat. Speaker Towers inspires soldiers to fight harder and heals them.

Operational History

Type-93 Overlord heavy tanks were introduced into the service in 2014 in the more support role, not being meant to be used in as great numbers as Battlemasters or Brawlmasters. Three years later, in 2017, during a military parade in Beijing, a GLA attack lead by Dr. Thrax, who fought with USA and the Allied Nations for a year, attacked the parade using suicidal bombers and trucks loaded with explosives, destroying a portion of the tanks and armoured vehicles and killing many soldiers. Then Dr. Thrax finished the attack off by detonating a nuclear bomb from black market in the center of the city, killing thousands of civilians, destroying a 243rd Division and a portion of Beijing.

This act of terrorism dragged the China into the war with GLA, bringing in with it all its armoured vehicles, including Overlord tankss being within them. The first combat experiences with the Type-93 proved they were combat-efficient and reliable, thoguht their speed due to its weight was slow. Several Chinese tank crew praised the Overlord tanks for their extreme firepower, being capable of destroying GLA Scorpion tanks from great ranges (the longest recorded shot was from 4,600m). This sparkled the more intensive mass production of the Overlord.

Soon within Middle Eastern Asia, there were hundreds of Overlord tanks which rolled by, leveling any GLA base and hideout they found as well as any terrorist's heavier armour. As time went on, the GLA found an effective way of how to dispose off these heavy tanks by using normal warriors with RPG launchers and Stinger missile launchers. Overlord tanks werent fast enough to react to the new menace when the GLA soldiers attacked the tanks' sides and back, resulting in increased ratio of destroyed Type-93's.

Legacy

Overlord tanks served well with the PLA, then utilized by the Iron Dragon PLA later on and the used during homeland operations with the Chinese Royal Guard. Whilst time was going on. Overlords began to become obsolete and China started developing a newer tank, codenamed the Type-93RD Warlord, throughout the timeline of development there have been several Overlords retiring from combat. However, many other divisions of Overlord Tanks remains in service of the Chinese Royal Guard, with many variants being build on its chassis.

Its cousin the Emperor Overlord, designed by General Kwai was several times suggested to be Overlord's replacement after the modernization of the Chinese forces, but there was no word of this rumor being a truth.

Outside China, the Overlord also greatly influenced further development of the heavy tanks. In Russia, there began a development of a heavy tank prototype, which was under the designation "Object 666" which during the Russian Civil War evolved into the TT-125 Apocalypse, the Apocalypse was a large and strong mass-produced heavy tank of the present, greatly utilized by Forth Reich and also Iron Dragon PLA.

On the other side, within Atlantic America developed a new tank designated M10 Templar, which adopted from Overlord two cannons instead of one, while being a up-armoured version of M6 Paladin tank merged with M1 Abrams. Templar Tanks can be seen in action with the USMC in Middle East, The Company of Liberty also utilized these tanks within Asia.

Prince Kassad of the GLRF was greatly influenced by the encounters and experiences with Type-93 tanks within his time inside the GLA, Prince Kassad upon personally seeing the fatal power of the Overlord commissioned the GLA forces to design, create and construct a heavy tank for the GLA, then later developed into the GLRF. This "development" culminated into the Scarab. Whilst the Overlord tank is currently classed as an outdated unit, it is still a heavy tank whose on sight terrifies many soldiers all across the globe.

Unique Overlord Versions

Currently being used by China are two unique versions of the Overlord, which were created through additional funding for the Overlord heavy tank project, these unique versions were built before the Second Eurasian Conflict as prototypes for future combat. This additional set of funding allowed the Iron Dragon PLA to build these two heavy tanks for combat use for the battlefield today, later after 2025 the tanks were authorised for production and began serving two of China's combat sectors.
