The Trepida class Grav Tank became the standard issue Imperial grav tank (at least at the high end of the technology level scale) in 1109, and was widely distributed within the Third Imperium.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

First deployed towards the end of the Fifth Frontier War by the Imperial Army, the Trepida class Grav Tank gave a relatively cheap TL–14 Grav Tank for line deployment in Jump Troops units and others.

The Trepida I was able to penetrate over 2.5 metres of steel at 2.5km range and could withstand that same level of firepower across its frontal arc.
