1. Classification
1.1        Light Tank
The concept of light tank is compared with traditional medium and heavy tank. The light tank is small, light, fast and flexible.
Light tank is classified according to the weight and caliber. It mainly used for investigation and vigilance, also can be used to fight in some specific conditions.
Due to the limitation of its motility and weight, the light tank has to avoid firing against medium and heavy tanks. It can take advantage of its motility to perform the battlefield supply or its speed to discover enemies for other friendly tanks to attack.
The light tank in the battle or map is shown as a green or red “ ”.

1.2        Medium Tank
Medium tank is really flexible and multi-purpose. It is competent in the role of investigation, assistance and even attack.
Compared with light tanks, the difference between medium tanks is really large: the heaviest medium tank is 67t and its armor thickness reaches 120mm; the speed of the fastest medium tank reaches 60km/h. If you want to destroy enemy investigators, especially when they are light tanks, the medium tank is the best fighter.
Moreover, the medium tank has better cannon and armor. Although its motility is weaker than the light tank, it has the advantage of its fast speed against the heavy and Piat. Therefore, outflanking the enemies, offering fire supply, or finding the weak point of enemy defense, the medium tank is equal to all these aspects.

1.3        Heavy Tank[
Heavy tank, as its name shows, it is really heavy and cumbersome. However, it has heavy armor and powerful cannon and it often the crucial to turn the table.
Due to its thick armor, it moves slowly: the lightest heavy tank weighs about 42t, equals the heaviest medium tank, while the heaviest heavy tank weighs 190t; the speed of the fastest heavy tank is about 20km/h~50km/h; the armor thickness of the body can reach 200mm and its cannon armor can be as thick as 300mm; only anti-tank is more powerful than it.
Heavy tank can be the bridgehead during a battle, especially when several heavy tanks charge in a line laterally. It also can be the crucial unit holding the crucial location in the map to drag the enemy charging speed.

1.4        Piat
Piat, also called tank destroyer, are specially used to destroy enemy tanks. Its cannon are much more powerful than other units of its level.
Most of the Piat has no chin turret, so it has to rotate its body to aim at the target. Meanwhile, it can lower its body to hide itself better. The heaviest Piat weighs 91t; the speed of the fastest 55km/h; the thickest armor reaches 250mm.
Piat has a slight armor which is easily penetrated. So the driver has to hide the piat and launch attacks surprisingly. Piat can’t handle close range confrontation.

Miley, please have a native speaker work this over, preferably a male who knows something about the game, tanks and military history.

A "Piat" is not a tank at all, but an INFANTRY-AT weapon similar to a Bazooka. (Just google "Piat".)
