|General Ultimax||ULTIMAX Tank|
ULTIMAX Tank is the vehicle of General Ultimax. It is used to fight the team during Chapter 6, and it serves as the Chapter Boss there.
In battle it can fire bullets or charge at the team, but it can also spend a turn charging up before using it's normal charge attack, but at much higher speed and higher damage. At the end of each odd numbered turn, it'll fire two missiles into the air, which will hit marked positions 2 turns later. Both missiles might target the same position. It also won't fire missiles if it charged up this turn. It can also occasionally summon Wasp enemies to assist it. The Wasp Troopers it summons have (7/5) HP, and Wasp Scouts have 7 HP. The summoned wasps act on the turn they're summoned. After loosing half of it's HP, it's cannon will explode. This will prevent it from firing bullets, but now General Ultimax will throw bombs out of the tank like Wasp Bombers do, and the tank will charge up more frequently. When it's HP is depleted, the tank will explode, removing any summoned wasps and throwing General Ultimax out onto the battle field.
It has rather high HP and DEF on both modes, so Kabbu is very useful in the battle, as his attacks pierces the defense. Alternatively, lower it's defense with Break or Heavy Throw. It has high Freeze resistance, so don't rely on it. Since all of it's attacks either hit all characters or his multiple times, Enfeeble and/or Fortify+ are effective. If it charges up, use Bubble Shield, as the follow up charge deals high damage to everyone even after Cleanse. Frost Bowling with at least one attack up can be useful in this battle, as it can one shot a summoned wasp and deal high damage to the tank, and even Freeze it if you're lucky.
