Title: AAI Vehicles: Flame Tank
Short Description: A Tank with a flamethrower. The Flame Tank has good acceleration, armour and is fireproof.
Mod State: Beta
The Flame Tank has good acceleration, armour and is fireproof.
The Flame Tank has one weapon, the flamethrower. The Flame Tank's turret has a fast turning speed so can deal well with many enemies from multiple directions.
A new type of flamethrower ammo has been added, the Flame Jet ammo (same as the ammo added by the Flame Tumbler mod). The Flame Jet ammo acts like the vanilla tank flame regardless of what weapon fires it. The vanilla flamethrower ammo has been modified to always act like the handheld fire stream regardless of what weapon fires it. The handheld Flamethrower, Flame Tank flamethrower and Flame Tumbler Flame thrower can all use both types of ammo.
The Flame Tank can be automated with AAI Programmable Vehicles to act autonomously as part of a vehicle formation.
In a vehicle formation the Flame Tank is designed to be near the front to deal heavy damage with the flamethrower and soak up damage for less tanky units. It is especially effective combined with a Warden vehicle that can repair the Flame Tank mid combat.
