Hey there,
I'm trying to create a sentry tank in a custom MvM mission but I can't find anything on how to do it.
It would be great if somebody could explain to me how it's done or just link me a pop file that includes a sentry tank.
Thanks in advanced!

Sentry tank is made through some mapping trickery, which pop file triggers through specified relays on tank spawn. I think only mvm_teien uses such trickery, so it's impossible to spawn sentry tank outside of that map.

(I think map download includes pop files with them. Expert mission got sentry tank spawning somewhere, probably you should check that. To see how maps does make sentry tank, probably you can decompile it and see by yourself. (I'm pretty much sure decompiling stuff to learn about how it's made is fine))

Thanks for your help!
I thought it wasn't the map, because of this video, which is showing of tank varinats on official mvm maps:
Well, I'll probably need to find this out myself if nobody else has any information about this.

I think stuff that was shown in video was some SourceMod'ed stuff, so if you plan to make your mission in "vanilla", then using sentries/telepotatos on tank would be impossible if it wasn't intended in the map.

Yeah, I just looked into teiens waves and theres a relay triggered by the wave that spawns the sentry.
