UT-38/130 Main Battle Repulsortank

The Commonwealth soldier of the middle years during the Commonwealth
Sector War had much to be proud of. Imperial forces had been driven
back in a two-year-long retreat that was constantly under pressure
from Commowealth tank units, mainly equipped with UT-38/125s.

A large operation to try and entrap an immense Imperial tank force in the
northern sector of the planet Drakos required a special repulsortank to
spearhead the operation. By the latter stages of the war, the Empire began
to equip its armored forces with the fast and well-armed Lynx tanks and the
superlative, unmatched Lion repulsortanks. Commonwealth forces needed to
stay on top of the Empire, and a new UT-38 design was sent to the drawing
boards.

The Tyn'Ik Corporation once again produced a runaway success in creating
the UT-38/130. Incorporating a new metal alloy that was lighter than any
other at the time, yet still as durable as standard steel plating, the
UT-38/130 was hoped to be produced in large numbers by the Commonwealth
High Command.

The UT-38/130 is equipped with a 130mm cannon, a slightly larger calibre
gun than that of the Empire's Lynx repulsortank. A slight upgrade in
armor from the UT-38/125 included the addition of armor skirts, or plates
of steel bolted onto the sides of the tank to minimze the effects of
hollow- and shaped-charge weapons. The UT-38/130 is also fitted with a
concussion grenade launcher, a weapon that allows the tank to overrun
enemy infantry positions without having to use the main gun's expensive
ammunition.

Unfortunately for the Commonwealth Army, the Empire managed to capture
a vital Tyn'IK production facility on Drakos before the UT-38/130 was
able to be produced in mass numbers. The war ended a few years afterward
when the Empire captured the capital city of Drakosia, leaving behind a
long line of dead soldiers and destroyed vehicles, and a legacy of
infamy of the UT-38 tank series.
