J.A. ZA-2 Edit
The ZA-2 is a grey and very small tankette designed for killing infantry or providing some additional firepower for the soldiers. It's concidered J.A.'s first tank on the market.
Generally a very small tankette, having a grey painting on it and being half the size of a average full-grown adult. The Tankette is very uncomferable to sit in. It also features a commander/gunner cupola for keeping surrounding awareness.

The original ZA-2's only advantage was it's extremely light chassis which made it possible to be easily transported. The upgraded model of the ZA-2; ZA-2U made it's speed. armament and armor greatly increased.
The original ZA-2 has poor speed, armor and armaments, this issue was so bad that serveral buyers started to discard the tanks and return them back. J.A. responded with developing a upgrade to solve these problems and came with the ZA-2U. The current issues of the ZA-2U is it's armament that is not fit for tank-to-tank combat and is still vurnable to most if not all tank guns. The ZA-2U's 20MM HMG has a heavy recoil on the turret and therefor J.A. recommends the users to fire the HMG in short bursts to avoid inaccurate fire.
Four models were released before getting replaced by the ZA-3
ZA-2, The original model, featuring it's little armour, engine and guns.
ZA-2U, Having a better engine, 20MM Heavy machinegun and slightly improved armour.
