That's a TAC tank, carries two nuclear warhead capable of destroying enemy HQ (which is our goal).
There are two place that you can get tanks and other armored vehicles. You buy tank in this game btw.
If you open your map this should be the most bottom left icon objective. It has a tank icon to it. You need to capture it to produce tank.
Once the warfactory is your team possession (captured), you need to enter the building and press P (like when you wanna buy weapons and stuff in bunker), it will list a list of armored vehicles that you can purchase with the prestiges you have. There are some good ones like Light tank, Infantry combat vec, and truck, the others are less likely to be used.
Once you purchase your desire vehicle, there should be a countdown clock at the bottom left of your screen once that timer close up and there will be a voice say automatic construction is done then you can get your vehicle at the bays right next to the room building which has a garage door over it when something is being built.
- Prototype factory
This is the biggest objective on the map and it's kinda in the middle of everything. It has a atom as icon to it. To be able to buy stuff from this building, you need to have the energy bar filled up. To have the energy bar filled up you need to have the building/objective captured, then have the energy sites captured too to speed up the process. Once the energy level reaches 25%, 50%, 100% there will be more and more special alien technology/weapons/tanks stuff for you to buy. Just try out the stuff if you want, but TAC tank and singularity tank are the only two that can shoot down enemy HQ. When you're in a TAC tank and loaded, don't shoot anything less than 50m in radius otherwise the server will kick you (bug).
Uhm lolz, I have gotten really frustrated to get to know this stuff. Sometimes when I bought a tank and I didn't know where it spawns and I was like "*#&$*, where the #*&$# is my tank?", hehehe, and sometimes when I got my first couple tank and I got out to repair my tank and my teammate jumpped in and stole my tank and I was like "you F@G, get out of my #*&$# tank, get your own!!"!111.
But once I get the hang of it and know what to buy like mines and stuff it's really fun. Kinda like what happened when I first started BF2142, where you have to learn the new curve.
