Armor Attack came in an upright white cabinet, with stick-on sideart featuring a tank scene and a yellow 'Armor Attack' logo. This was the same cabinet used for "Star Castle
" and a number of other Cinematronics titles. The top of the cabinet is adorned with a rather plain marquee that has the Armor Attack logo in yellow on a black background; together with a few game instructions. The control panel had a picture of a green and yellow tank, and had the player controls which consisted of 10 pushbuttons, without a joystick to be seen anywhere (the game controls are almost exactly the same as "Asteroids
" or "Star Castle
", except that your jeep stops moving when the player stops pressing the move button). Most of the graphical time was spent on the monitor bezel and overlay, which showed a single scene of a ruined town.

The main motherboard PCB is the same basic design as all other Cinematronics games. It has been modified to accept larger 4k 2732 eproms, up from the original 2k 2716 roms used on previous games. With four 2732 eproms, the program code for Armor Attack is 16k in size.
As with all other black & white Cinematronics vector games, the CPU was created using TTL chips.
