Of course Universal Petroleum need tanks, because with tanks they can kill anyone who they can't bribe...

"Universal Petroleum's mercenaries use this light tank when they need to operate in VZ-occupied territory. It's particularly effective against aging guerilla tanks, but outclassed by anything heavier."
—Stockpile caption

The tank is a steel-black color, with the UP logo on the sides of the turret, with a decent speed and a light complement of armor. The Mantis' armament consists of a 105mm main gun with 40 shells, a very powerful coaxial 20/25 mm autocannon, evidenced by the explosive splash damage produced.
The gunner's position is equipped with a Browning M2HB .50 caliber machine gun with a limited 180º forward radius. The Mantis is very flexible as it allows the driver to switch between the 20mm for soft vehicles and light armor and the 105mm for heavy targets while the .50cal gunner can take down infantry.

The easiest place to get one is at the UP depot in eastern Maracaibo. However, those looking for a challenge can acquire one in UP's restricted zone east of Merida (appears after the PLAV's "Corporate Headhunting").Several of these will be seen in the "Price of Gas" contract for the PLA. It can also be purchased at the UP shop for a more than reasonable price of $50,000.

The Mantis is a copy of the Cadillac Gage Stingray Mark II Light Tank. -Mercs Wiki.
