[Development] MARS 15: Light Cavalry

An extremely mobile French experimental light tank, developed during the late 1980s as a replacement to the AMX-13 on the export market/

In War Thunder, the MARS 15 will be a new light tank arriving to the top ranks of the French ground forces tree with the release of the next major update. Offering its prospective commanders excellent mobility and firepower – both defining characteristics of a light tank – the MARS 15 won’t just expand the French light tank lineup but will also give seasoned French tank commanders access to a highly potent new high tier skirmisher!

The MARS 15 comes equipped with a 90 mm CN 90 F4 cannon as its main armament. Despite appearing slightly underwhelming in comparison to most other tanks at its rank equipped with 100/105 mm cannons, the MARS 15 more than makes up for its cannon’s smaller caliber by possessing excellent ballistic properties and access to both powerful kinetic as well as chemical rounds. As a result, the MARS 15 is more than capable of holding its own on the battlefield and even more so should one find itself unchallenged on your team’s flank!

The MARS 15 arrives to the top ranks of the French ground forces tree as part of the next major update “Ixwa Strike” to War Thunder and will become available for research to all players upon release of the update. In the meantime, make sure to stay tuned to the news in order to find out what other exciting new features the next major update has in store for you. Until then, happy hunting tankers!
