The M-2 Hydra is a French tank available in BattleTanx: Global Assault. Of average armor and speed, it is equipped with twin 75mm cannons which, while light by themselves, are able to bring down most targets efficiently thanks to their rapid rate of fire.

The cannons are staggered, each reloading as the other fires, and it is common to see the Hydra using its plentiful ammo to lay down suppressing fire between battle lines. It is perfectly suited for leveling buildings. An M-2 is almost guaranteed to inflict damage before succumbing to enemy tanks, which makes it a popular vehicle among novice operators.

The spacing of the guns means that rounds fall just left and right of the turret's central axis, so when presented with a small target like the MotoTank, the gunner must account for parallax in order to score successive hits. Thanks to the tank's medium chassis, it has no apparent weaknesses.

As well suited as the M-2 Hydra's cannons are to urban warfare, its deployment is almost exclusive to its country of origin. Les Misérables run them through the streets of Paris whenever they're in supply, and the design is occasionally borrowed by microgangs in need of a quick build.
