The Ma-54 is the standard Main Battle Tank of Rusaik.
Armed with a 140mm ETC gun as its primary armament and equipped with advanced composite armour, the Rusaikan Ma-54 is competitive with most NS Main Battle Tanks.
One of its unique features is the pair of independently-elevating turret-side weapons mounts. The Rusaikan armed forces usually mount a pair of 20mm autocannon for air defence in force, though the mountings can also accept a triple or quadruple cluster of most tube-launched missiles, depending on size. For air defence, surface-to-air missiles such as Stinger or Starstreak can be carried, but equally, tube-launched anti-tank guided missiles can be mounted for extra anti-tank capability.
At over 78 tonnes, the Ma-54 is on the heavy side for an MBT, but is still lighter than some heavy tanks used doctrinally as MBTs.
