APC painting by Turboslav
Equiped with an #100mm #artillery in its frontal turret, its able to bombard enemy defences on riverbeds and coast, as well as destroy enemy barges and harbors. The gun fires up to 100 meters far with decent accurency and a fire rate of 12 shells per minute over an 200 degree frontal arc. For defences, a HMG is installed in the rear on a stationary pod and gun shield. Its also able to withstand enemy small arm fire with its 15-30 mm armor and its low siloutte makes it hard for beach guns to hit the ship. The small size of the ship combined with the armor makes it slow, making it hard to stalk barges, but allows quite accurate fire while moving. Also the low siloutte has its cost; the ship lays deep in the water and wont stand the rough sea waves. The ship will be manned by a crew of 4: the captain and steerman; the main gun commander, who can spot enemies up to 125 meters far away; The main gunner, who rotates the turret, sets the firing distance and fires the gun (he has poor vision); and a mechanic who repairs the boat as well as mans the rear machine gun for cover fire or defence against aircraft.

Army strong, filled with Ire
For our blasted Warden foe
Born from ashes, we fight with fire
Forward to victory we go
Legion brave, and legion many
We raise our mighty sword
One goal, to kill the enemy
Mark my dying word
Rifle, hammer, or bare hand
We march forward to the land
That belongs to the Empire, right and true
If so needed we’ll go right through you.
We are (x2)
We are the legion. song by Kixx

Assault on Tuatha
by Marv Singer
At Saltbrook Channel, that is has been taken over by the Colonials. A supply truck dropped off materials, fuel, engineers,tank shells, and the commander of the 242nd Armor Division. Commander Singer and engineers pull out the light tank blueprints they finally received and started construction on a squad of light tanks.Given that they can only make light tanks until the boys back in safer territory come up with designs for better tanks. After the tide turned at North Star and the Legion stormed through Brackish and Vulpine, surrounding the island. The tanks were given the green light as Colonial High Command did not know if it was worth it to send resources to make them during this battle. Seeing as the Legion made the battle in their favour, the tanks were to give the grunts a rest.
It took around thirty minutes for them to make three H5 Hatchet tanks.In the Commander’s eyes and mind, she thought the Hatchet was one of the best tanks the Colonials have fielded. Since the H5 is the newest tank and everything else is out dated. Besides that, the tanks were filled with fuel, shells were dispersed between the three tanks. When the third one was finished, two tanks were moved to the front. Greta in the lead tank and driving it towards Tuatha. The two cross the bridge at Dearg’s Fang and stop at the Colonial FOB that is just outside of Tuatha. Northwest of it. Colonials and Wardens are in a fierce firefight. With the Warden’s backs to the wall and running low on supplies, Many of them bayonet charged their way out of the front gate to capture weapons and ammo from the Legion. Heavy fortifications lined the walls protecting the town. Even with the lack of supplies, the Wardens did not show any sign of breaking. The Legion’s 30th and 41st Infantry Battalions did lack the initiative to break the Warden line. Until the armor came.
Volunteers came to the two tanks and became their gunners and spotters. The first objective was to break the defenses and get inside the wall as usual. Gate defenses were the first to fall when the tanks arrived at the line. Greta constantly had the tank move forward and reverse to minimize the damage from Wardens charging with High Explosive Grenades. Five minutes into the battle, the second tank moved forward and an anti tank cannon took out the tank in two hits. Taken by surprise, Greta made her tank go in reverse and decided to clear out the west side of the wall for the infantry.
Gun nests, and a bunker kept a good portion of the infantry pinned. One gun nest at a time, it gave the infantry time to recover and consolidate behind the tank and make field repairs while it focused on the bunker wall. With one side clear, Infantry started using the gap as a point of access. Driving to the open gate, the spotter had the gunner open fire on nests and AT guns in the middle of the road. The Wardens tried to recover and build more further up. The spotter called out that another AT gun was being built and the gunner could not see it. So Greta did a ballsy move and charged her tank down the road to the build site. Stopping close to the infantry, the gunner finally saw it and fired the main gun. Destroying the build site. Retreating for repair from HE and getting more ammo. Finding out that the tank shells have not reached the FOB yet. Waiting for the shells, the crew discusses about using the tank as a shield dedicated shield. The gunner and spotter shrug and agree to it. When they are about to move, a soldier comes up to the tank with four shells that was recovered from the other tank. With the limited ammo, the infantry start advancing again when Greta has the tank move up.
To keep both flanks clear, the infantry blindly charge ahead of the tank as the spotter is trying to shout at them to stop moving and use the tank as cover. The gunner debates between shooting the garrison building or the gun nests. He is ordered to focus on the garrison building as the infantry use the tank to deal with the gun nests. Since the gun nests are distracted with them, the infantry lob HE grenades over the tank and passed it to hit the gun nest. The fourth shot and an HE grenade thrown into the garrison destroyed it and most of the defenses were destroyed by the foot soldiers. With the quick work of the outer defenses, the Infantry grow brave and their morale improved. The Legion flooded through the gates and openings in the wall. The tank started to move into the city to provide cover from garrisons and gun nests. Less than thirty seconds into the city, a will hidden AT gun disables the tank. The crew members eject from the tank and the AT guns shoots another round and destroys it. The Gunner was torn up from machine gun fire, the spotter was grazed and Greta was stunned and treated for injuries from shrapnel entering the tank.
Even though the tank was destroyed an hour after it exited the factory, Greta returned to Saltbrook by foot to get the third tank that never went to the frontline. Long behold, when she got there, it was missing.
“Where the hell did it go?!” she called out.
No one knew where it went.
