The Assault dedicated cabinet is a real favorite among arcade game collectors. This is probably due to its unique shape, and non-standard controls. The Assault cabinet was very narrow, the vertical open frame monitor barely fit between the sides of the thing, which were less than 18'' apart. A standard arcade cabinet is about 23'' wide if it is an older style one, or 30'' wide for one of the newer deluxe cabinet styles. So Assault was very narrow, probably the narrowest game ever made. The top half of the cabinet is decorated with sideart that is supposed to resemble the outside of a yellow tank, and these same graphics carry on over the monitor bezel and control panel as well.
