Quake III bio[edit | edit source]

Like Alexander, son of Phillip of Macedonia, Tank Jr. is the rightful heir to a kingdom carved out by conquerors like his sire, the Tank Commander from Stroggos. Descended from that dreaded and feared military leader fought and defeated during the Stroggos Wars, this machine of war possesses an innate desire to crush all foes beneath his metal-shod heel.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It has been speculated that Tank Jr. is the offspring of the Tank and Iron Maidens seen at the end of Quake 2 (in the secret area) after facing off Makron himself.
  • TankJr is the only character in Quake 3 without an idle animation.
