- "Can we hold them?"
"They are the Avengers!"
"Deploy the rest of the tanks."
"Concentrate fire on the weak ones."
- ―Wolfgang von Strucker and a HYDRA soldier
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.
- This tank was portrayed by the Soviet BMP-1 vehicle.
