Sony Online Entertainment has dropped new details and screenshots for the one-man tank of PlanetSide 2
known as the Lightning. The Lightning tank is available to all three factions at a low resource cost and comes with the following setup:
- Capable of firing up to six rounds in under three seconds, allowing the driver to quickly adjust their aim after their first shot
- Designed to have a modular turret that can be completely swapped out for other turrets types
- Its "Skyguard" turret is the most effective ground-to-air weapon on the battlefield, as it's fitted with 40mm cannons with an elevation range of 80 degrees
- Fastest ground vehicle, besides the quad, making it difficult to out run it
The Lightning’s most notable weakness is its inability to go head to head with a main battle tank. Check out the latest screenshots of the Lightning tank after the break.
