(Eagle's) Talon Heavy Repulsortank

One of the many beginning mistakes's the Rebel Alliance ground forces
commited was their negletion of the repulsortank. Trapling over Rebel troops
armed only with light small arms, the Empire, the Imperial Army to be more
specific, repulsortanks showed a decisive tactical advanatage. An advantage
the Rebellion couldn't negelct any more.

Besides the field modified speeder truck Victory repulsortank, the Eagle's
Talon (more popularly known as the Talon) heavy repulsortank is a devoted,
production-based repulsortank that the Rebel Alliance ground forces
desperately yearned for for over five years, directly after the Battle of
Yavin/Pre-Hoth time period.

Light and mobile, the Talon must rely on its speed and maneuverability to
escape pressed enemy anti-armor strikes, from such vehicles as the Ghest
and Jagdghest, to make up for rather poor armor plating, a drawback Rebel
field commanders later corrected in prototype and later production Talon
models.

Armed with a 105mm massdriver cannon, a heavy repeating blaster, and two
light repeating blasters, the Talon is a force that is to be reckoned with,
and has already taken on mcuh more heavily armed but complicated and hard
to produce tanks, such as the Jagdghest, tallying marks up for the Rebel
repulsortanks.

Fitted with other equipment, the Talon also did special-purpose repulsortank
needs, such as mine detection and clearing, tank-hunting versions, and
serving as command tanks with the Rebellion through its long, dedicated
career.
