Bohemia Interactive has released a brand new tank on Arma 3 as a present to gamers on the ‘Alpha anniversary’.
In celebration of it being a year since Arma 3’s Alpha was released, on March 5th 2013, Bohemia Interactive has deployed the M2A4 Slammer UP (Urban Purpose) tank variant, pictured above. Gamers will automatically have access to the Slammer UP by letting the title automatically download and instal today’s update on Steam. Bohemia released this information on the brand new tank:
The M2A4 Slammer UP is the urban purpose variant of the M2A1 Slammer. Compared to the base version, it features heavier armor with reinforced rear of the tank and a remote-controlled turret. This weight increase had to be compensated somewhere, which is why the M2A4 is fitted with a less powerful 105mm cannon – compared to 120mm of the base Slammer.
