—A Charon Tank driver just as an enemy in front of it suddenly vanishes

The Charon Tank is the monster tank of the European Alliance.

Official description

The Charon Tank is the pinnacle of European technology. Its neutron cannon, a larger, more powerful version of the one used by Chrono Legionnaires, has the ability to instantly erase any unit targeted by it from this time and space. This allows the tank to immediately remove threats without any chance of retaliation. The sheer amount of energy used for this unstoppable weapon means that the Charon has a long cool down, making it vulnerable to enemies after it has fired.

This weapon is not only technologically a fearsome weapon, but psychologically as well. Soldiers and tank pilots find the prospect of being flung into a completely different dimension a far more terrifying fate than mere death. The Charon's neutron cannon is still rather controversial, but due to lack of evidence to the true fate of this weapon's victims, the tank remains in European arsenals.[1]


The Charon Tank is one of the Euro Alliance's few ways of dealing with Tier 3 tanks. It can wipe out most tanks in less than a second, though its long reload time proves to be its downfall, coupled with its inability to attack buildings make the Charon a questionable unit when attacking an enemy base.


As a token of gratitude for your help in Germany, Siegfried gave us his blueprints for the Charon Tank, which utilizes the most powerful chrono erasure technology with pinpoint accuracy.
