The T-55 MBT is show as having fairly weak armor for a tank, with most other tanks and rocket launchers destroying it in one hit. The T-55 is armed with a 100mm Main gun, which is effective against medium and light vehicles,but requires five or six shots to destroy most Main Battle Tanks. The T-55 is also equipt with a co-axil SGMT machinegun and the commander can opperate the 12.7mm DSHK HMG. On several maps, the SGMT is replaced by a co-axil flamethrower. The T-55 appears used by most of the UMEF factions, along with the Cuban Army, the Ultranationalist, and the North Korean Army.
