Home > Vehicle Engine Appendix

Different engines are an important key to victory. Upgrading the engine in your tank will allow you to outlast or outshoot your opponent.


Cost and speed figures are given in the form (Jeep / APC / Tank).

Heat management figures are given in the form (generated while moving / dissipated).
