In Squad, the role of tanks is pretty straight forward. You need to clear out whatever is in your team’s way. You are not responsible for transporting your team. In this Squad tanks guide, we are going to look into different tanks like the M1A2 Abrams, Challenger 2, T72B3 and T-62. We are also going to go over their pros and cons.


With the tank, your targets are enemy tanks, IFVs, APCs, trucks and foot mobiles. The task is simple, take out any enemy unit that moves. Kill, push and avoid being killed. That is pretty much all that you need to do. But obviously, it is harder than it sounds.
