The Vanguard is the New Conglomerate's Medium Battle Tank, often referred to in-game as a "Vanny". It has a low side profile and is the most heavily armored MBT. Its gunner can switch between two guns. Its main gun does a lot of damage but fires slowly. This makes it hard to engage moving targets and important that the first shot is a hit. The secondary gun is dual 20mm cannons that is useful against aircraft or targets at large distances.

The Vanguard requires a Technology Plant lattice link or Sanctuary vehicle pad in order to be purchasable.


Shots to kill (with 150mm Cannon only):
