There are 14 tanks that appear in the WDL, though only 9 appear in both versions of the game.
The M1A1 is a
good standard tank. Medium speed, medium armor, it has a decent main cannon
mounted on a seperately swiveling turret.
is the fastest tank in the WDL. It is small and manouverable, which makes
up for its lack of armor. For weaponry, it has two fixed mount machine-guns,
and it can do a fast turn in either direction.
the Rhino is the most heavily armored tank in the League. The majority
of its armor is concentrated in the front, where it can take a huge
amount of damage. It mounts a fixed mount medium fire-rate heavy cannon.
The FLP-E (or "Flippy
Tank") is a highly manouverable attack tank. It is fast, and can use small
jump-jets on its flanks to flip over in a strafing pattern. It mounts a single
fixed mount cannon. It also gave me quite a lot of work, since its flipping
could move it in a way my physics and collision code wasn't expecting!
may be slow, but it can take a massive pounding. The Goliath is often used
to protect bases from enemy attacks, and can be attached to a rail. It
mounts a single turreted heavy cannon.
Coasting on a
cushion of air, the Hovertank has speed and manouverability. It can even
strafe side-to-side. It mounts a turreted medium cannon.
The inferno may
be small and lightly armored, but it mounts a turreted flamethrower, which
can do a lot of damage close-in.
The Hydra is
a good medium scale tank that mounts dual medium cannons on its turret.
is small and lightly armored, but it is fast, and mounts a high-speed
Tank is a decent medium scale tank that mounts a high-power laser cannon
on its turret. It only appears in the N64 version of Battletanx: Global
Bulldog is a medium armored tank with its own unique weapon... it
mounts a fixed orientation grenade launcher as its primary means of
causing damage. The B-6 Bulldog only appears in the PS1 version of the
Global Assault arenas.
In speed and
armor, the Hornet is a very average tank. For weaponry, though, it mounts
two turreted Swarmer missile launchers, giving it a high level of damage
by the nickname "Suicide Tank," the M-80 has one purpose. It is cheap, small
and lightly armored, and has no normal main weapon. It is a drivable bomb...
pilot it into the middle of an enemy base, and set it off. The results will
be gratifying! The M-80 Demolition Tank only appears in the PS1 version of
This is one of
the best tanks in the WDL. It is moderatly fast, decently armored, and
mounts a turreted gatling gun capable of a lot of rapid-fire damage. The
Shredder only shreds in the PS1 version of Battletanx: Global Assault, and is
the favorite tank of the lead programmer of the game (you can access the tank
anywhere in the game using the cheat code "TRF," his initials).
