The Lightning light tank is used by all three Empires. It has the least armor, smallest profile and highest speed. It lacks the firepower and armor to engage a medium tank. Instead it can be used for drive-by shooting or as light artillery. A Lightning can be transported by the Galaxy dropship .

Lightning 14 shots
Prowler 36 shots
Magrider 28 shots
Vanguard 36 shots
