Jacent Tracked Tank (TECH LEVEL A)[edit]

Serving with the Jacent Resistance Forces, small numbers of these vehicles can be operated inexpensively to disrupt occupational forces attempting to garrison the planet. They are not intended to stand toe to toe with modern Grav tanks. They are not sealed and offer no life support, trusting to the breathable atmosphere of their planet of origin. A variant with a bigger power plant and larger main gun is being discussed for development.

This tiny tracked vehicle has a crew of three (driver, gunner, commander) and is built on Jacent (FH 2331) (world). It mounts a LMG in a fully stabilized pintel mount with a gun-shield on top of the turret.
