The HYDRA Tank is an armoured vehicle used by HYDRA and upgraded with Chitauri technology following their invasion of Earth. The tank was made by outfitting old Cold War Soviet models with armour panels, sensor arrays, EMP emitters and pulse weapons.
In 2012, after the Battle of New York, the HYDRA infiltrators in S.H.I.E.L.D. got their hands on numerous pieces of the Chitauri tech. Over the next two years, HYDRA‘s scientists managed to reverse engineer the technology and upgrade HYDRA‘s arsenal. One of the armored vehicles made by HYDRA was this tank, armed with advanced cannons that could fire heavy energy blasts.
A number of these were used by HYDRA‘s troops when the Avengers attacked Dr. Jensen’s lab in Port Sudan, Sudan. HYDRA used the tank to shoot down the Avengers’ Quinjet, but the Avengers survived the fall and attacked HYDRA, ultimately winning the battle. Later, several tanks were protecting Baron Strucker’s fortress in Sokovia.
HYDRA‘s hybrid tanks are Russian-made BMP armoured fighting vehicles, upgraded with armour panels, sensor arrays, EMP emitters and powerful Chitauri pulse weapons. The design consists of Gunner’s pericope, advanced custom-built turret, wide double-barrelled cannon and a reactive armour plating. The interior comfortably fits a dozen soldiers.
