All credit where it's due, I just felt the need to clean the image and modify it a bit.

Now all this needs is it's stats and a JSON. Now I've heard of this spreadsheet where you put in values, and it gives you stats accurate to the tank. Anyone know where to find it?
Never mind, I think I can find it.

I found it, but I can't edit it. Here are the things to be entered in the Spreadsheet by he who can.

18.7 tons weight.
6.4-51 mm armor.
37 mm gun.
210 Km OP range.
42 Km/h.
914 meter range.

I also assume a bonus against infantry because it was armed with multiple machine guns.

You need to the download the app corresponding to the spreadsheet's place of origin in order to edit it. I don't think I explained that simply enough if at all.

Yep, that tank is armed with 4, if not over 6 machine guns pointed at almost every direction. It's truly a shame it didn't get to see much action.

Edit: here's an idea, put the cannon shot as a spell with cooldown: 1, and give it a second action to rip out the machine guns.

I'm having troubles downloading the app, hopefully I can do it today. I'll see about a JSON and that cannon ability, as I like the idea.

Here are the stats:

HP: 20

Armor: 1/3

Speed: 4

Power: 11

Sight: 5

Actions: 2

I used the formulas on the Spreadsheet to calculate these stats, however I did not put it on the Spreadsheet because I dont understand how it works or how to use it real well.
I'll start work on the JSON.

Here is the JSON for the tank. I did not add the cannon special ability beacause I am not yet skilled enough to implement it. I leave that task to someone more skilled with JSONs than I. I also did not change the unit number because I am unaware of what to change it to.
I made the bonus against infantry 100%, meaning this tank deals 22 damage to infantry per hit.
I also changed the name of the image to fit the JSON better, I did not modify anything else with it.

Ok the unit is in - thanks!
uos 30

XLS: Also i put it into spreadsheet(the xls) - i have only made a new line, copied m5 into it updated the yellow parts with real stats - the rest got calculated.

JSON: i turned it to M2A1 tank with 51mm gun as i read M2 was never in battle. updated json attached.

special ability: what do u mean?

textings: we only need nice textings to it , i was playing with image embedding, tell me how it looks

<string name="UNIT_US_TANK_M2_TANK">Medium Tank M2A1</string>
<string name="UNIT_TXT_US_TANK_M2_TANK"><![CDATA[The M2 Medium Tank, officially Medium Tank, M2, was a United States Army medium tank that was first produced in 1939 by the Rock Island Arsenal. Production was 18 M2 tanks, and 94 slightly improved M2A1 tanks, for a total of 112. <p><img src="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... ds_014.JPG" width="120" /></p> ]]></string>

Thanks! It all looks good. Texting and everything.

The special ability that was mentioned is this:
Firing a cannon. The idea is that, since the tank is going to be most effective against infantry, then it should use its machine guns as it's primary weapons. The cannon would be used as it's secondary, and be used against tanks and such.
However, the more I think about it, the more I wonder if it is neccessary for this ability to be implemented, since the cannon, last I checked, wasn't very strong. And besides, the illusion of the tank switching weapons can be created with ease by simply modifying the bonuses. If the tank deals more damage to infantry, it must be using it's machine guns. If it deals any damage to another tank, it is most definitely using it's cannon.

There will other units with ability attack as well. Ability attack is for unit that can strike further and not enough for 2 tile, fast moving and hard to counter, or the attacker usually is very skilled to able to attack without getting counter.
