Unlike other Fallout Tactics vehicles, it has a 75mm gun called Tank Gun which can lob a shell over a reasonable distance. It is owned by the Reavers and stationed in their main camp, Newton, until a squad of Brotherhood of Steel, led by the Warrior, comes, repairs it and takes it under their control.
The game takes place in 2197 in the American Midwest. The Eastern Brotherhood of Steel is trying to claim territory surrounding Chicago. The Warrior, the player character, is a new recruit to the Brotherhood, tasked to lead a squad of soldiers made up of available initiates.
