------------------------------------------------

Strengths

  • Shielded
  • Powerful against lightly-armored to medium-armored infantry, in some cases, strong against heavily-armored infantry (depends on slugs being used)
  • High RPM allows the Lynx to cut down lightly armored vehicles with ease
  • Relatively quick on roadways and across country
  • The relatively powerful engine allows for easy crossings across water and muddy terrain
  • Main gun can easily tear through infantry lines with ease
  • When paired with the M1-Leopard, it is a force to be reckoned with

Weaknesses

  • Very poor against tanks and medium-armored vehicles
  • Deflector shields cannot take sustained fire
  • Weak tank treads that can be easily taken out by landmines or a well-placed missile/rpg shot
  • Electronic systems (IE; comns, gps, etc) can become temporarily disabled from EMP fire
  • All other guns, excluding the main gun, have to be manually loaded in a process that can take up to a maximum of thirteen seconds
  • Lightly armored
  • Excels against infantry, not so much against heavily-armored vehicular devices
  • Not overly powerful alone

DESCRIPTION

  • The M1-Lynx is a continuation of the recently developed and planned Tiger-58 tank design. Being the second tank after the creation of the M1-Leopard, the two tanks share much of the same key design elements. Elements that will most likely be featured in future tanks following the Tiger-58 design format. Unlike the M1-Leopard, the M1-Lynx is an anti-infantry focused tank to mow down moderately armored and lightly armored enemy soldiers across the frontlines. With being an anti-infantry tank, it lacks the amount of firepower and armor that the M1-Leopard has. Despite this, it is usually seen and operated as a frontline tank. In most cases, the M1-Leopard will lead the charges in frontline engagments followed closely behind by the M1-Lynx which will mow down any infantry who stands in the way of the G.W.S and their up and coming private military organization.
