Die, pigs!
- TX99 Akula

The TX99 Akula is an experimental unmanned Consortium heavy tank. It was built around a new railgun cannon and optical camo system.

With medium speed, stealth capabilities, and a powerful railgun cannon, the Akula is the perfect "hit and run" unit. However, Akula tanks do not have heavy armor like the M1A2 Abrams. Because the Akula is unmanned, it will not leave a pilot behind when it is destroyed.[1]

Overview[]

At the ready!
- TX99 Akula

Since TFT doesn’t have too many stealth detecting units, the Akulas can easily be used to their full potential, making them extremely effective against spinners. They are also good for picking off defences one by one. Good Akula micro really makes the difference. Their stealth is broken when driving over stuff like lamp posts, trees, cars, enemy units, etc. and of course when attacking. Remember, since it’s invisible, it can be used to effectively “block” off choke points like bridges.

However, its armor is very weak, so it will not stand in a direct engagement with either M1A2 Abrams or the Spinner UGCV.

The body of tank is similar to the body of the T-15 Russian heavy infantry fighting vehicle ("Armata" Universal Combat Platform). According it's name, "Akula" (Russian: Акула; English: Shark) is a Russian prototype tank
