The Type 56 was introduced early into The Conflict as Costigar's (then The Technocracy) to fill the role of an easy-to-make and a cheap-to-produce armored tank.
About this creation
It uses an unconventional sponson-and-turret style design (see Carro Armato M11-39). While not the best tank on the battlefield, it's low production cost and speed of manufacturing made this tank preferable in the early war. It features one 40mm cannon and one .435 Caliber machine gun.
