Armor Handbook & SOP
What is Armor?
Armor teams come in many shapes and sizes but our primary objective is always to put the most amount of firepower in a concentrated location. Armor never charges headlong into the enemy; instead, we prefer to out flank opponents and attack in force
- Armor division can be effective with anything from half a squad to a full platoon of players.
- Armor always work in cohesion with the other divisions even if not in the same AO.
- Armor is slow. So we tend to stay on the same lattice line, but should the need arise, we will ditch our vehicles to support our brothers.
- Vanguards will not be the only vehicles in Armor; we also deploy Lightnings, Sundies, Harrassers, Reavers, and even Maxes.
Being behind a Titan-150 cannon can lead to temptation involving the destruction of friendly vehicles. Nonetheless, all Armor players will obey the Code of Conduct.
(For more information see: Tactics (Armor))
Armor employs many tactics that involve more than just tanks that can be organized by Squad Leaders.

Each player is encouraged to develop their own play style in Armor. However, we have compiled some suggested setups for various vehicles that may be helpful for beginning tankers.
Armor currently offers the following courses:
