Mental Omega Wiki

The Tank Drop is a Russian support power available from the Palace, which, as its name suggests, paradrops 2 Tank Killers and 2 Hydra Cannons anywhere on the battlefield.

Note that the Industrial Plant does not reduce the Tank Drop's cost, as the tanks are delivered, not produced.

AI behavior

The AI will use Tank Drop at a clear space close to the center of the enemy base. If all enemies are defeated, the AI will target their own base, with the same circumstances. Additionally, the AI seems to prefer targeting Tank Drop in undefended areas of a base.


Our Tank Killers and Hydra Cannons make for an excellent anti-unit support. You can deploy more of these units with a Tank Drop once a Palace is built.

Behind the Scenes

  • Tank Drop originates from General Kwai's namesake promotional ability in Zero Hour. In fact, Tank Drop's cameo in Mental Omega is based from that ability.
  • Prior to version 3.3.5, the support power delivers 3 Rhino Tanks to the battlefields. Delivering main battle tanks is similar to what the namesake promotional ability in Zero Hour does.
