Ground Forces Upgrade

The ground troops are getting an upgrade in several areas.

First, the armor team is getting the Israeli Merkava Mk 4, a tank that can carry 5 troops in full gear, or the equivelant amount of ammunition.

They are also receiving the T-90 MBT. Armed with a 125mm gun, it is the only tank that can kill a M1 Abrams, the US’s main battle tank.

Next, on the infantry support side, the BTR 90. It can carry 15 fully armed troops, and is armed with a Sagger anti tank missile and a 40mm cannon. The passengers can also fire their sidearms from the firing ports. It has a top speed of around 50 mph, making it more than capable of keeping up with armor.
