Vengeance Heavy Repulsortank

The Vengeance-class heavy repulsortank is the heaviest piece of armor in the
Palvar Defense Force. It serves much the same purpose as the Imperial
AT-AT walkers, but much more effectively.

The Vengeance repulsortank is a combination of a floating weapons platform
and an armored personnel carrier. As a weapons platform it carries an
impressive arsenal including a heavy laser cannon as the main weapon, a
concussion grenade launcher on the same axis, a pair of E-Webs modified
into effective antipersonnel turrets on either side as well as an anti-
vehicle land mine layer.

In standard operation, the Vengeance tanks engage other vehicles with their
heavy laser cannon which is supplemented by the concussion grenade
launcher for close-range engagements. The modified E-Web turrets make
for excellent antipersonnel and anti-light vehicle work, each being able
to cover the front and rear fire arcs to some extent (there are only small
blind spots directly in front and directly behind the tank). At last
minute, designers added an anti-vehicle mine layer to the tank's aft end,
routing controls to the co-pilot's station. The mine layer allows the tank
to effectively set up a perimeter around itself and more or less "dig in"
for extended periods of time.

The Vengeance repulsortank boasts top of the line electronic systems that
Imperial repulsortanks and walkers lacked for reasons of cost. The Palvar
Defense Force is able to afford such luxuries as shield generators and
enhanced sensor arrays on board their heavy tanks. In addition to the shield
generator and sensor array, the Vengeance repulsortanks feature a long range
communications terminal which has an effective range of low orbit, allowing
the tank crew to communicate directly to a command ship above the planet.

Other features include a smoke generator on the aft end and a spot light in
front of the ingress/egress hatch on top of the main turret. The Palvar
Defense Force has had each tank specifically painted with various camofluage
patterns for varying types of terrain and surroundings while supplementing
the tank with whatever else it may require for that specific enviroment
(such as extra internal heaters for tanks intended for use on an ice world).

The Vengeance tanks tend to be deployed only to company strength units and
higher with each crew being trained extensively in proper fighting and
survival techniques for the enviroment type that their tank was assigned.
