The Marksman is one of the new tanks available in BattleTanx: Global Assault. With average armor and speed, it is equipped with a laser cannon as its primary weapon. It is very accurate as the tank's name suggests.

The attack is instantaneous compared to slow cannon shells, which is advantageous at longer ranges. It is worth noting that the laser cannon is offset on the turret to make room for capacitor banks. This offset can be useful when using obstacles for cover. Against smaller targets, the Marksman's gunner must compensate for the offset.

The instantaneous nature of this teal laser has a little-recognized advantage: Onlookers who glimpse a laser (but do not see who fired it or where it hit) are unable to distinguish the direction from which it propagated. This affords the Marksman slightly more anonymity than given to projectile-based tanks.

Coupled with a Radar, a Marksman is able to easily locate targets through fog at distances which grant some impunity against projectiles.

Being of technology so advanced, Marksmen are quite rare, seen fielded only by inheritors of governments which were developing the weapon at time of the outbreak. The Shadow Ops and Cold Warriors, for instance, have a number in their arsenal.
