The Siege Tank is a Terran military vehicle used for armored and long range artillery support.
It is known for their heavy firepower, endurance, and ability to transform from tank to artillery platform. The Siege Tank's few weaknesses are its lack of an air attack and its inability to move in siege mode. Due to its indispensable military value, virtually all Terran factions use at least one variant of the vehicle in their armed forces.
Some paramilitary forces refit the tank's main cannon with non-standard equipment for more specialized roles. These refits include: mining lasers, missile pods, and autocannons. The more unorthodox mercenary groups try to customize the arsenal of their tanks to distinguish themselves from other gangs.
