Use after the First Eurasian Conflict
While the tank was mainly focused on being para dropped on the battlefield, it still remains its 105mm Cannon, which helps packing a lot of firepower into enemy armor with devastating effect. Before the "B and C" types were delivered to Chinese and Company benefactors, the predator tank and all its variants were utilised against the Global Liberation Army and any other enemies who are against the free world guarded by US Task Forces and Iron Dragon PLA.
The tank was placed back into action and production to meet the demands for the Second Eurasian Conflict against the GLRF and the Forth Reich of Yuri, especially General Granger utilises Predators as replacement of Crusaders or Abrams tanks. Despite the tank being outdated, United States Task Force regiments such as the Ace Air Force Sector can acquire the classic tank via Reinforcement Pads for deployment.
There are various types of the Predator Tank currently in active existence in the world. All types, the USA's M3A7A, China's M3A7B/Type-66 and the Company's M3A7C which are currently being utilised for further combat in its existance, the tanks have been utilised with modifications such as mini-nuclear drives and even a repeater cannon.Type-66 Tourcher Battle Tank
Formerly known as M3A7B Predator, after its retirement China acquired rights to produce the tank with a new name, the Type-66 Tourcher. The Chinese Tourcher is armed with EMP shells to disable enemy armour, making them easy prey to other tanks.
Another addition is the use of Depleted Uranium in its shells to make them more devastating and when combined with EMP, giving Tourcher great anti-armour capability. Another upgrade is the use of small nuclear reactor, making the tank faster, but dangerous for all its surroundings when destroyed.M3A7C Mantis Support Tank
Imported from the United States, the C-Type variant of the famous M3A7A Predator is an asset to the peacekeeper forces of the Company of Liberty and codenamed the Manis, armed with a repeater cannon, which can deals with enemy forces in no time, especially light armoured vehicles and tanks.
As a support vehicle, the Mantis is equipped with grenade launcher, but instead of launching real grenades, the tank can launche flares to distract the enemy while retreating or the opposite, pushing forward.
Still being in service today despite being outdated by newer tanks, this classic never died just yet, at the moment it is being used by the USA's Ace Air Force Sector as a diversional tank, recent acquired satellite images and photographs shots shown the tank in action:
