Tank

space: 5
inventory: yes
hit points: 350
max speed: 15 mph
cruising speed: 8 mph
location: Newton
turning circle: 0 ft
The following is based on Fallout Tactics and some details might contradict canon.

The tank in Fallout Tactics is a Sherman which has been heavily modified over the years. Basically all of your preconceived ideas about tanks being heavy, slow but virtually unstoppable are born out by this baby.

Unlike other Fallout Tactics vehicles, it's got a 75mm gun called Tank Gun which can lob a shell over a reasonable distance. It was a property of Reavers, and was stationed in their main camp, Newton, until a squad of Midwestern Brotherhood of Steel, led by the Warrior, came, repaired it and took it under their control.

Notes

  • The game seems to use the pilot's Big Guns skill for accuracy/damage calculations with the Tank Gun, not the gunner's.

Tank appears only in Fallout Tactics.

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From GuildWiki

A tank is a well-protected frontline party members whose role is to draw enemy fire and to distract and/or block foes from battling other party members. Typically, a tank uses melee and/or Point Blank Area of Effect skills. In Guild Wars, Warriors have an advantage in this role because they have the strongest armor against physical attacks.

The act of tanking typically involves standing still and taking a beating from enemies instead of running away or kiting. Tanking is often used in PvE to make the healer's life easier (only one person to concentrate on). Tanking is especially effective in combination with Protection spells and stances.

Tanking expectations

Veteran players expect certain basic behavior from their party's tanks. If you plan to serve in this role, make sure you know how to attract the appropriate foe, draw aggro effectively, when to go after a called-target and when to stay put, and how to stay alive. Here is a brief list of situations tanks are expected to handle with ease:

Situation Expectation Good tanking Bad tanking
Tank-on-Tank Tanks are expected to attract aggro from enemy melee foes and to keep it focused on themselves. Reach enemy tanks quickly; stay put. Rushing towards enemy spell casters, which allows enemy tanks to rush your allied casters.
Aggro vs Ranged Foes Ranged foes tend to focus on squishier targets, instead of attacking the tank. Sidestep or stutter step, causing some blocking, which will cause foes to come close enough for you to reach them easily. Targeting ranged foes too soon and/or rushing straight towards them.
Stay put When the going gets rough, the tank stays put. Trust allied healers to keep you alive. When short on health, run sideways and/or dodge. Running back towards the backline of the party (drawing enemy attention to your allied casters and making it harder for them to heal).
Stay alive A tank with high death penalty is of little use to the party (as they can no longer draw as much enemy fire). Bring some self-heals and/or defensive skills; know when to use them. Rushing towards a new mob before your casters regenerate their energy. Not protecting yourself.
An ounce of prevention A tank without additional protections is less valuable to the team. Ensure that the party is able to help support the tank, e.g. through Protection Prayers, relevant skills from other attributes, or from the tank's own skillbar. Rushing into battle without appropriate protections.

Tanking by profession

Warriors are the most common form of tank, having the strongest armor against physical attacks of any profession. Warriors have many skills (especially in the Tactics line) to help minimize damage and hold the enemies' attention. Other professions need to be more creative to mitigate damage and so are less common on the whole.

Any profession, given the right set of skills and proper preparation, can tank for their parties in certain areas. In particular, Rangers, Monks and Elementalists possess in their skill set a number of skills that can be used to make them very resilient to damage. These builds are usually attuned to the monsters in certain explorable areas that do not possess the means to overcome them. When the enemy is highly variable (as is the case in PvP), non-Warrior professions become susceptible to facing counters designed specifically for their means of damage reduction. For example, monks and elementalists relying on enchantments to resist attacks will have problems against skills that remove enchantments.

  • Warriors: A tanking warrior will come equipped with defensive tactics to mitigate as much damage as possible. Typically, the warrior will charge the enemy and will focus mostly on engaging the frontline, keeping mobs attention off other characters in the back row. Tanks use shields, stances and, sometimes, secondary profession skills such as Protection Prayers to minimize damage inflicted upon them. They can take quite a long while to kill. Tanks can be used as booby traps using AoE spells that are centered on the caster such as Inferno or Shield of Judgment, but should avoid skills that do damage over time as enemy mobs will run away.
  • Dervishes: Dervishes that are designed for tanking will most likely carry several Earth Prayers skills, possibly an Avatar, and possibly some self healing. Such a dervish would use their enchantments and stances before battle, and attempt to keep them active while the battle occurred. Particularly common dervish armor tanking skills are Avatar of Balthazar, an elite form with a 40 armor bonus, and Conviction, a stance that adds armor to the dervish,and an additional chance to block attacks when enchanted. Mystic Regeneration and Mystic Vigor are useful skills for recovering health.
  • Monks: The Invincible Monk (and its variations for other professions) is a very popular form of tanking that depends on a host of enchantments. The build fails horribly when the enemy can bring strong enchantment removal.

Other types of tanking

It is also possible for pets and minions to tank for a team. This feature is used to great effect in the once popular Barrage/Pet builds (most commonly found in the Tomb ruins) that lack any damage-absorbing player characters.

Notes

  • The opposite of a tank is a squishy.
  • Some players use tank as a synonym for warrior. Therefore, confusingly, a tank need not necessarily be tanking.
  • Tanking is less suitable in organized PvP. Human players will tend to snare tanks and focus on the squishier targets. Once the healers are gone, the tank is easy prey.
  • Tanking is not the only tactic for melee physicals in PvE, as they can also manipulate their builds to deal decent damage to their enemies.

GTA

Up to date as of February 09, 2010

From Grand Theft Wiki

A Tank in GTA 1.

The Tank is, as implied, a military tank. It has been featured in Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto 2, as well as Grand Theft Auto Advance.

Contents

Description

Design

While tanks in GTA 1 and GTA 2 are presumably original in design, the Tank in GTA Advance assumes the appearance of an early Rhino in GTA III and GTA Vice City, with a noticeably larger turret and additional detailing; all three renditions are painted in some form of military green paintwork, fitting for their design as a military vehicle. It is unknown why the GTA Advance rendition's name is inconsistent with other renditions of the Rhino, despite sharing the same body design.

Performance

As expected, Tanks tend to be slow and lumbering due to its excessive size, but the vehicle is regarded as special in the games due to its extraordinary strength and ability to blow up vehicles by driving over them, or using the turret to shoot at them. The turret however, has limited shots when the player uses it in GTA 1 and GTA 2. Tanks in GTA Advance are also capable of maintaining their speed while traveling off-road, something most road vehicles are not able to do.

The Tank is an extremely deadly enemy because of its powerful cannon and can only be damaged with explosives. They're used to block roads, but will shoot at the player while doing this. Like other vehicles in GTA 2, it can't be stolen when used in a blockade. Although it posses great firepower and is very durable, it's not good to use against tank blockades because it's a very easy target for other tanks, whose cannons will make short work of it.

Like the Rhino, the Tank in GTA Advance allows the player to activate Vigilante side-missions, and is also capable of sounding a siren. In addition, the scrap value of a Tank at the game's crusher is the highest among all GTA Advance vehicles, at $19,904.

Locations

  • In GTA 1, the Tank is a hidden vehicle which can be found in all three cities (Liberty City, San Andreas and Vice City).
  • In GTA 2, however, it may also be used by law enforcement agencies when the player has a six-star wanted level; Tanks in the game are found in all three districts of Anywhere City, and most Tanks trigger Kill Frenzies when entered.
  • In GTA Advance, the Tank appears in the same manner as Rhinos between GTA III and GTA Vice City Stories, when the player attains a six-star wanted level.

Similar vehicles

Similarly designed tanks assumed different names in GTA London, including the Royal Pain in Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 and the Tiger Tank in Grand Theft Auto: London 1961. With the exception of GTA Advance's tank, tanks from Grand Theft Auto III onwards are known as Rhinos.

Tank is a powerful Cruiserweight who currently wrestles in the KFWF e-federation. He is known for his powerful yet high-risk moves and for his no-nonsense attitude and variety of styles. He is currently in his third year of wrestling.

Personal Info

Life Before Wrestling

Tank was born in Boston, Lincolnshire in England, to a small ordinary family. He was an ordinary kid who enjoyed nothing more than going out and playing football/soccer with his friends. He never had a profound interest in wrestling until he was aged 17. He was a sports fanatic and enjoyed his football, becoming a semi-professional for his local team at the young age of 15. A horrific accident left him severly injured and unable to play at the age 0f 16, and he spent the next year rebuilding himself. It is said that this unknown accident was the cause of his change in attitude and direction, and prompted him to gain an interest in fighting and wrestling. A young Craig Mitchell had already become a black belt in Karate at the age of 14, and used that skill to become a kick-boxer. He later quit that at the age of 16, due to the injury that put him out of all sports. His love of football never faded, but he decided to turn to fighting in a bid to reclaim any dignity or glory. He left home aged 17 and moved to America, where he started wrestling under the name 'The Tank'. When he joined KFWF at a later date, he reduced his name to 'Tank'.

Early KFWF career

Tank made his KFWF debut on April 2, 2004. This debut was a big moment for him, and he faced a hard match against the then Heavyweight champion, Hailstone. Tank went on to win this match, using the interference of Hailstone's valet Gailstorm to his advantage. He later went on to tag with the now more famous Hide, in the tag team 'Dead or Alive', in which he suffered an unsuccessful and short run. It was down to this failure that he was driven to acheive something, and turned to the Cruiserweight division to help him become something.

Signs of Greatness

Tank showed early signs of great things to come, alongside his debut success against the Heavyweight Champion, he went on to compete in various other matches, slowly making a name for himself. He never stole the limelite, and at the time wasn't a regular main eventer, but was still up-and-coming and was fast becoming a fan favourite Cruiserweight. With his never say die attitude, and his varied style of martial art, technical, and high-flying moves he was showing rapid signs of improvement.

The First Stable Title

Early in his career, Tank joined forces with Omle, Synn, Sledge and at one point, Alex Senior - To become Skirmish. Tank and Omle were inducted into this stable as part of a new regime, and they soon became Stable Champions. Indifferences between certain members led to people leaving and joining, and ultimately losing the title - and a year later the Stable had split, and gone their seperate ways.

The First Cruiserweight Title

Tank was soon back in action, this time gunning for his first singles title. He set his sights on Dynamite, and his Cruiserweight Title. This battle went on for a month and a half, and culminated in a Steel Cage match at Hallo'ween Hell...In which Tank overcame the odds to become the new Cruiserweight Champion. This PPV also had another match in store for him, where he had earlier challenged Barn Boy Bates (later known as Ozone) to a Scaffold Match. The earlier Title match took its toll on Tank, and he ended up thrown off the scaffold and losing on the same night that he had acheived his first major title in KFWF.

The Tag Team Division

After losing his Cruiserweight title to Fusion, Tank took his time to decide where to head next. He had already been in an unsuccessful tag team with Hide, but decided the time was right to make another go in the same division. He soon found a suitable partner in Alex Senior, and they became the Suicide Machines. These two men soon made one of the best tag teams around at the time, and as they improved by each match, they soon had their chance at Tag Team gold. This was not to be however, and they lost their first shot. They later had a second shot at the Tag Titles, this time against CajunCarnage...in a Glass House match. Both teams fought hard, and again, The Suicide Machines lost in their second attempt at Tag team success. The duo later decided to call it a day, and the Sucide Machines ended their partnership.

The Second Cruiserweight Title

After a few months out of the limelight, Tank once again set his sights on Cruiserweight gold. This time he was to face Razor Rob Smith after defeating Chris Cajun for the no.1 spot. Tank had lost on two occasions to Razor Rob, but it was a case of third time lucky as he defeated Rob to begin his second stint as Cruiserweight Champion.

The Second Stable Title

Tank became embroiled in one of the biggest fueds ever in KFWF, after he was recruited by Crunch to join The Company, and alongside LJF and Scorpion, they defeated Hide's Kings Of Khaos to win the Stable Titles. The Company still hold the Stable title to this day.

Other E-feds

Tank also enjoyed short success in two other federations, CNW and 13 Honor. He did join HCW, but this didn't last long and he left the company after a brief run. It was at CNW where he made a name for himself alongside Radicazz, and they became Tag Team champions. Tank was also Heavyweight champion at one point, engaging in a bitter feud with Michael Pain. He also enjoyed a run in 13 Honor, but it was closed down months after it was opened.
