It's not a tank. I love the thing to death but it's not a battle tank in the slightest. It's made for bombing infantry from a distance in a fixed position, and can only take on other vehicles (most the time) at a distance or when they get the first shots off. The armor (except for the very front) is made of paper mache. People talk about getting mobile artillery in this game, but isn't the prowler everything mobile artillery would be?
