History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

These are extremely simplistic, bare bones hover tanks for blasting across open expanses of desert at speed. They offer no environmental protection nor defensive counter measures. They use the same 2cm auto cannon as the Martin Brand class Grav Tank. This is the same vehicle as the Ohtar Mk 632 ACV/GEV with a different weapon package and better sensors. They were forced into an anti-aircraft role, for which they were ill-suited. Troops of these vehicles request refueling vehicles be embedded in their formations to maintain range and endurance. They are direct fire specialists and require support to cope with other threat envelopes. They are common among the Haden Military Units.
