Comparative Ratings


Basic Description

The 9th rendition of the popular Vanquish battle tank. The Vanquish 9 has improved its engine and weapons firing system, and has been implemented with greater urgency since the beginning of the Terran-Gohorn war. The Vanquish 9 is almost on par in terms of sheer firepower, although the armour of these tanks is not as developed as its Gohorn counterparts.

The Vanquish 9 tank has had significant upgrades to its computer systems, allowing it to target more targets and fire more ammunition. It has also been upgraded so that its missile launchers are able to carry more ammunition. As a result, a Vanquish 9 is able to protect itself against missile attacks better, and also to dish out its own missile attack. The JOS-213.6161 has been specifically designed to kill other tanks, although it could just as easily target a hover-tank buster.
