UT-38 Main Battle Repulsortank

The years leading up to the Commonwealth Sector War were times of military
research and experimentation. Because of the sector's recent civil war, many
attempts were made to test new military equipment, even if it brought death
and destruction to their own people. One of the primary developments of this
era was the UT- series of repulsortanks.

An engineering firm, the Tyn'Ik Corporation, in the sector's capital city of
Drakosia was given the order to create a fast, lightweight repulsortank that
could deal with most enemy tanks from a respectable distance. For the next
three years, the Tyn'Ik Corporation experimented and finally compiled a
working prototype of the tank. Dubbed the EP-38, the prototype was
produced into ten working models that were then tested in the field.

The Commonwealth Social Reformists, the majority group during the civil
war, used the ten models to great success. Many towns sympathizing with
the Anarchists were obliterated with the EP-38. Once the Anarchist
Revolution had been grounded to a halt, the CSR put the EP-38 into mass
production, hoping to have a large force of tanks ready within a year.

The EP-38 was redesignated for production as the UT-38. The production-
model tank featured unsurpassed armor, with the frontal glacis plate
containing 220mm of 35 sloped armor, and the sides being compensated by
an equally superb 185mm of sloped armor at a 50 angle. The sloped armor
allows the UT-38 good protection for an extremely low ammount of weight
and exertion of ground pressure.

The UT-38 is fitted with a 115mm massdriver cannon, which is capable of
penetrating 245mm of armor plating at a maximum distance of 2.75 km. The
UT-38's cannon is capable of destroying any known tank in service in the
galaxy, including most Imperial armored vehicles.

The Imperial StormElite invaded the sector a year after the Battle of Yavin,
and was stunned that their tanks were being overrun by UT-38s. The UT-38
completely outclassed anything the Empire had in the field at the time, and
had nearly a 3 to 1 numerical superiority over Imperial tanks. It would not
be until the dawn of the Ganjuko-class repulsortank a year later that the
Empire and the Commonwealth Sector would be equally matched.
