The Scythian Orpheus S.H.D.T (Super Hover Death Tank) is the answer to a challenge put forth by the Assyrian empire earlier in G.R.2011 – an unchallengeable force in the battlefield displaying raw firepower and indestructible armour as the forward punch of Assyrian lines.
Most of all however – it was a display of “Technological Arrogance” to show off some of the Assyrian empires best tools of the trade.
Today – that arrogance ends.
The Orpheus now mounts an impressive forward array – including ramming forks with an independent shield unit between them – offering unparalleled forward protection and the ability to ram other tank units at the S.D.H.T’s top speed of 120 miles per hour. On top of this – the front now mounts two Lance Laser cannons to weaken, if not destroy hardened targets before it even hits them.
There is also an under slung dual barrel flamethrower (Not picutred due to extremely shitty picture quality
) to deal with uncomfortably close infantry and light vehicle threats.
The main weapons turret has undergone a complete overhaul – and now features a new “click-lock” mount for its twin Antimatter Projection Cannons – it’s main S.D.T killing weapons, which melt anything in their path down into an exotic slurry of particles which then explode – taking anything and everything in a large radius with them. The sides of the turret now sport thinner, more apt amour plating as well as twin Laser Gatling cannons (one per side) to deal with lesser threats, and a secondary turret mounting a smaller, but more efficient version of the Black Widow IFV’s anti-aircraft cannon to deal with aerial threats.
As can be seen on the back of the turret, the new “Claw” magnetic dump system stops the railgun systems used to project the antimatter from becoming degaussed and creating an EMP wave capable of taking out unprotected electronics on all sides in a good mile radius – also, it just looks fucking cool.
The new engine system is more than able to keep the Orpheus afloat at a variable height between 2 and 20 meters at 120 miles per hour, and is capable of short “bursts” of 240 miles per hour to evade incoming fire.
(Yes, it may still be a box, but now it’s a gun laden box with some decent curves and angles added to it, so suck on dem apples Natalya! :p)
