Report article RSS Feed Light tank clearance imminent

Resources are being dedicated to finishing off all light tanks for Age of Darkness. However, we still need dedicated riggers who can rig the tanks and leave us to finish the rest of the mod.

Posted by Beelim on Aug 18th, 2013

Looking at I realised that I have finished off nearly all the light tanks - a series which modders seldom pay attention to. We only have but a handful of models left to work on, so I think I will try to clear them all.

At the same time, we will also be dealing with a rather touchy issue: tankettes.

Tankettes are meant to be poor-man's tanks, built at the foundry and not a heavy engineering facility. Over time, however, once the HEF is up and running and producing light tanks, tankettes will be taken out of production because they are rather obsolete.

Generally speaking,

- Tankettes are faster than light tanks, cheaper to build but not as hardy
- Tankettes have poorer accuracy compared to most tanks, although they may deal similar amounts of damage or have similar weapons.
- Tankettes don't require the HEF to be assembled, and are built at your foundry.
