The M48A5 USMC is a main battle tank for the United States that first appeared in Wargame: AirLand Battle, only available to the Marine deck.

HistoryEdit

In the mid-1970s, the M48A5 upgrade was developed to allow the vehicle to carry the heavier 105 mm gun. This was designed to bring the M48s up to speed with the M60 tanks then in regular use and to simplify ammunition logistics. Most of the M48s were placed into service with reserve units by this time.

By the mid-1990s, the M48s were phased out of U.S. service. Many foreign countries, however, continued to use the M48 models.

OverviewEdit

AirLand BattleEdit

The M48A5 USMC is one of the cheap and readily available tanks in the game, however they are still somewhat expensive compared to their Soviet counterparts like the T-55 or the T-34/85M1 without being a whole lot better. While they will certainly not be able to match up to the higher tier tanks like the T-64 series, they can still perform roles in ambush and soaking ATGM fire to prevent NATO's higher tier tanks from taking damage in an assault.
