The Vanguard is a sturdy tank used exclusively by the New Conglomerate. The Vanguard favors heavier front, side, and top armor compared to other tanks, but this comes at the cost of speed and acceleration.
One brick of C4 will heavily damage your tank and set it on fire and two bricks will destroy it instantly. Any class, except the Infiltratror and the MAX, can carry C4, so watch out for infantry coming too close to your tank! When you see an enemy close to your tank and fear that he has already stuck C4 to your tank, you can activate your Vanguard shield to dodge the attack, but be aware: One brick of C4 will disable the shield when exploding and cause a near insignifigant amount of damage. Two bricks will disable the shield and leave the Vanguard in a burning state.
