The Matilda is the light tank and effective scout unit of the Allied Forces, equipped with light armour and light weaponry, making it effective against lightly armoured vehicles and infantry units.

BackgroundEdit

The main tank of the British army at the outbreak of World War II came in several variations, with the Matilda II playing a key role in the North African campaign. As newer German tanks were produced, however, the Matilda proved much less of a threat, and it was phased out of service by 1943.

GameplayEdit

  • Pros: Luckily, this Matilda is considerably speedier than its real-life counterpart, and it packs more single-shot firepower than the Halftrack.
  • Cons: It can hold its own against other nations' light tanks, but that's about it. And its low rate of fire makes it less effective against infantry than the Halftrack, which just happens to have 10 more hitpoints to boot.
  • Bottom Line: You probably won't build too many of these light tanks once you reach Tech Level 2 unless you're running low on resources and can't afford something better.
