Well Tanks were a lot rarer sight in Planetside, you needed to specially certify into Heavy Armored Vehicles to pull one, so they were a third tier unlock...
Still, Combat Engineering was way more common, and actual minefields didn't stop ANT runs.
Plus there was the fact that NTU was needed regardless AND Infiltrators could hack Vehicles, so if you were just waiting to flip the Base you'd might as well let the enemy fill it up.

And again, there is both the Galaxy and the Loadstar, both could load and drop ANTs.
