Mecha Tanks are anti-bending machines created by Hiroshi Sato for the Equalists.
Mecha Tanks are a weapon created by Hiroshi Sato used to fight benders on a bias playing field. Made of solid Platinum, a metal that metalbending police officers cannot bend, they seat one passenger that controls the vehicle. Driving like a tank with treads, Asami Sato points out that they drive just like a forklift. The primary attack functions of the tanks are two claw like arms that can be used for smashing as well as grappling an opponent before electrocuting them. The tanks also have other Equalist functions such as whips, bolas, and other tools to incapacitate benders. There are several ways to destroy a tank such as using earthbending to throw it off balance, redirecting the electricity at it, or using waterbending to flood the exhaust engine and cause it to malfunction.
