Can attack multiple times.
Back to the list of units
Modern armor units are faster and much more powerful than ordinary tanks. These are truly awesome war machines that can attack multiple times in a single turn and withdraw from combat if losing the fight (unless fighting another fast unit, of course).
A city must have aluminum, oil and rubber in its Strategic Resource box to build modern armor.
Modern armor's goal is to provide versatile firepower that can operate in any battlefield condition, while at the same time ensuring the safety of its crew. Sophisticated electronics allows modern tanks to operate in any weather, day or night, with no significant performance degradation. Capable of nearly 50 mph in rugged terrain, these fighting vehicles are often in the 50-60 ton range. Though their firepower varies, most of these advanced tracked vehicles are equipped with 100mm+ cannons, in addition to other smaller caliber machine guns. Depending on the assignment, some versions include "reactive" armor, which helps to thwart the advanced armor-penetrating munitions seen on today's battlefields.
The Modern Armor is based on the M1A1 Abrams tank.
