The MPF Light Tank is a tier 10 light tank originating from United States, and is a premium vehicle.

Features[]

  • Stealthy: This vehicle does not lose any camouflage when moving at any speed, which is handy primarily for scouting.
  • Hydraulic Suspension: This vehicle's hydraulic suspension allows you to tilt its hull to the front and to the rear for improved gun elevation and depression angles.
  • NERA: This vehicle's ablative armor provides additional protection, but deteriorates with each hit taken.


Player Recommendations[]

Pros and Cons[]

Pros[]

History[]

Class: Light Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 2019-2021
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 1-2
Operators: N/A

This vehicle’s name stands for Mobile Protected Firepower, which is a U.S. Army program to replace the aging Stryker platform as the Strykers are to be decommissioned in the coming years. U.S. Airborne forces clearly need a highly mobile fire support platform, which effectively calls for a reincarnation of the old Light Tank concept that ended in active service with the M551 Sheridan.

Two companies answered the call – BAE Land Systems with its prototype based on the old M8 Thunderbolt II Light Tank, and General Dynamics with a Light Tank based on the Griffin demonstrator. The Armored Warfare MPF Light Tank version represents the latter. General Dynamics unveiled a single prototype in 2019 and the tank is currently undergoing trials. Despite some rumors, neither its hull nor its turret is based on the Abrams, although the prototype’s internal turret layout is similar to that of the M1A2 MBT, making it easier to train crews. The technology used in its design is fairly conventional with the primary armament being a 105mm low recoil gun.

The Armored Warfare version has been updated a bit compared to the real-life prototype and features NERA armor, Iron Fist APS and an experimental 120mm smoothbore cannon, which should in theory be able to fit in the turret.
