The Chieftain Mk10 is one of the Main Battle Tanks available for the United Kingdom faction, like the other memebrs of its family, it sacrifices speed and fuel economy for tough armor.
The primary upgrade for the Mark 10 was the Stillbrew which was limited to some units in BOAR.
The Chieftain Mk.10 is the last in the line of Chieftain tanks in European Escalation and Airland Battle, it is unlocked after the Chieftain Mk.2 and Mk.5. Compared to its predecessor the Mk5, it features (European Escalation):
- Increased Main Gun accuracy (+5)
- Addition of Stabilizer (Normal)
- Increased Price (+20)
The Chieftain makes a great substitute for the Challenger in early game situations, and will--given the Challengers limited numbers--form the backbone of any British Deck with armored units. A big issue with the MK.10 is that the cost mean that bringing on two MK.10's onto the battlefield will cost more than a single Challenger--which is invariably more effective at repelling large assaults. These units aren't merely used to plug gaps within a defensive or assault; they will often be used as the main armor contingent for British players due to their [relatively] cheap deployment costs and amiable performance on the field that justifies its use.
However, it can be easily overwhelmed by a powerful armored push should there be no Challenger or ATGM support. Therefore, it is essential that these units are placed correctly so as to ensure their efficacy.
