Competitive Play

In Advance Wars 1, 2 and Dual Strike, while not without its uses, Md. Tanks was uncommon in competitive matches, especially in the early game. Generally, the majority of the units cost less than 10,000G and the Md. Tank is too expensive.

The exception would be Colin and Hachi, who could afford it without an issue. While the Md. Tank does have high defense against B-Copters (unlike regular Tanks), there are much more cost-effective ways of dealing with regular Tanks: Mechs, Artillery and more than 1 regular Tank.

Days of Ruin addressed this issue by reducing the price, and now they're more viable.

Trivia

The Orange Star's and Rubinelle's Medium Tank design is based on the US M1 Abrams.

The Green Earth's Medium Tank design bears a cross resemblance between the Sturmtiger assault gun and the Char B1 heavy tank due to its large tracks.

The Blue Moon's, Lazurian's, and IDS Medium Tank design is strikingly similar to the IS-3 heavy tank.

Although Yellow Comet's army is based on the Imperial Japanese Army, its Medium Tank design closely resembles the Soviet KV-2 Heavy Tank. Very few tanks have such a disproportionally huge turret.

Black Hole's Medium Tank vaguely resembles a German Tiger tank.
