J.A. X-155[edit | edit source]
The X-155 is one of the last tank models to roll out the X series production lines, having a rather low silhouette, a powerful 155mm howitzer cannon and a gas-turbine engine. It's also regarded as J.A's first tank to operate on a gas-turbine engine.

Development[edit | edit source]
J.A started to develop a tank that was based off the ISU-152. The prototype model had a 120mm cannon loaded with APHE-T rounds. This proven to be a rather light load-out for a tank-destroyer that has a powerful engine. The armament was changed to a 155MM Howitzer cannon loaded with AP-T.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The X-155 is a green, low silhouette tank-destroyer that features a long 155mm Howitzer.
Advantages[edit | edit source]
The X-155 has a low profile, that being to being harder to spot. The X-155 has also a well sloped frontal that bounces incoming rounds mostly. Its 155mm Howitzer is deal to engage any tank with ease(excluding the reload time). Its gas-turbine engine also provides good power to move rather quickly.
Disadvantages[edit | edit source]
Due using a gas-turbine engine, the X-155 needs to refuel after a amount of time. The X-155 has also a very limited ammo storage that is located in the frontal part and rather stuffed, meaning that any penetrating shot in the frontal part can lead to a deadly cook-off. The X-155 holds 6 rounds. It also lacks MG ports that makes it unable to fend itself off against infantry. The 155mm howitzer has also a rather slow reload.
