The GM-5 is a Third Generation main battle tank (MBT) currently in service with the Graditoran Military. It was designed by Graditoran Arms and built by Graditoran Arms and MacTavish Armor. Designed for modern armored warfare, the GM-5 is known for its mixture of speed and armor.
Some innovative features include the adoption of a multifuel engine, the use of composite armor , an autoloader, and separates the ammunition from the crew placing it in the rear surrounded by a heavily armored section of armor protecting the crew. The GR-5 MBT entered Graditoran services in 1978, replacing older outdated tank designs and being updated to modern specifications since its introduction. It currently replaces the GM-4 as Graditora's MBT.
There is currently only one other variant of the GM-5A1. Labeled as GM-5A1O. The O stand for the Oscillating turret.
The O variant has retained and in some areas increased amounts of turret armor. The oscillating turret lightens the load on the tank taking it from a heavy cumbersome weight of 64 tons to around 50 tons. Due to lower weight the engine performance has also substantially increased.
