UT-38/125 Main Battle Repulsortank

The UT-38 triumphed over the Imperial StormElite's armor in the early
months of the Commonwealth Sector War. To the Commonwealth forces
disgust, with every battlefield innovation comes a countermeasure. A
year after the beginning of the war, the Empire began equipping armored
divisions with the Ganjuko-class repulsortank.

The Ganjuko repulsortank was capable of over-running even the most
battle-hardened UT-38 units, no matter what numbers they possessed. With
over 325mm of frontal armor plating and an unmatched 150mm cannon,
many UT-38s fell prey to the Ganjuko in the early months of the third
year during the conflict.

Commonwealth military officials realized the losses their tank units were
sustaining, and began designing plans for a second-generation of the UT-38.
A few months later, they submitted their plans to the Tyn'Ik Corporation for
production; the result was the UT-38/125, an upgunned and more heavily
armored variant than the original tank.

The UT-38/125 features a high-velocity 125mm massdriver cannon, a major
improvement to the original vehicle's main gun. This cannon can penetrate
approximately 285mm of armor plating at an optimum distance of 3.2 km.
The redesignation of UT-38/125 is because of the original tank being
upgraded to a 125mm cannon.

UT-38/125s are superbly armored vehicles, featuring a brilliantly designed
frontal glacis plate containing 250mm of 30 sloped armor and side plating
supporting 195mm of 50 sloped armor. One of the major differences
between the UT-38/125 and the UT-38 is the addition of a layer of IPA
(ionization pulse armor). The IPA is a specialized layer of armor that
helps absorb and dissipate the effects of electromagnetic pulses caused
by ionization weapons, vehicle malfunctions, and nuclear blasts.

The UT-38/125 began equipping Commonwealth tank units about ten months
after the introduction of the Ganjuko-class repulsortank by the Empire,
and made-up the bulk of the armored force in the Battle of Endenberg,
a deceisive armored victory for the Commonwealth Army.
