Thank you million times! I copied it for personal use just in case it doesn't get a sticky! Every forum here should have one (and with pictures!)

This is awesome, thank you! I am a newbie and could only find an updated for 4.0 tank guide for Vanguard. With this i should be able to apply the Vanguard information straight to my new 60 powertech, I hope. Thank you! Thank you!
