The setting is "Death Tokio", a wasteland where mankind's end is imminent. Set near the end of the 21st century in 209X, the story follows protagonist Talis, his companions and the series signature tanks. Shown above is the series staple tank R-Wolf. This tank's incarnation has two new features, "shooting" and "ET shield".

Shooting allows you shoot on the field to get the upper hand on strong enemies with a preemptive strike. Weaker enemies can be instantly demolished with this method. ET shield increases the tank's defenses using its remaining energy. If the tanks's energy is depleted, each part of the tank will take direct damage and risk breaking off.
