The most fun anyone could have with a tank, except for New Dominion Tank Police.

It is the future. Everyone must wear gas masks, because the environment is shot. Crime is out of control, so the police of Newport city use tanks. Enter Leona, a new female recruit, who manages to destroy Squad Commander Briain's new "mega" tank by the end of the first act. Also included, two cyborg cat sisters, Annapuna and Unipuma [where do they hide those machine guns???], and their artifical humanoid leader, Buaku, and several dozen hired commandos.

Dominion Tank Police is a cute series. It is brought to you by the same people who gave us Black Magic M-66 and Appleseed.

While all four acts make a complete story, it is quite possible to watch Act I and Act II separately from Act III and Act IV. In addition, Act III and Act IV of Dominion Tank Police have a "subplot" which is quite a bit more introspective then Act I and Act II or New Dominion Tank Police.
