The Anti-Tank is a gunpowder unit introduced in Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This late-game gunpowder unit is cheap, receives a major bonus against Armored units and enters play with the Ambush promotion.

Civilopedia entry[edit | edit source]

Since its introduction at the tail-end of WWI, the tank has completely recast the modern battlefield. Being heavily armored, tanks are almost invulnerable to the small arms carried by standard infantry. To combat this new force, Anti-Tank Infantry units were developed by world militaries. These units employed high-velocity cannons capable of penetrating a tank's thick armor, turning once unstoppable war machines into oversized, mobile targets.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Anti-Tank unit is modelled after World War II period German soldiers and is armed with the Panzerschreck.
