Lo-speed Tactical Heavy Assault Vehicle v.8
While not as fast as other deployed, tactical, vehicles it packs a lot of fire power. It does have enough weaponry to defend itself from land and air attacks but this vehicle should be supported by several other Hi-speed, medium to light, assault vehicles. The Wyrm was designed to assist in taking out heavily fortified, concentrated, positions such as surface to air defense or communications centers.
- "Clear Cutters" are large saw blades with an independent power-train. Since it can't fit between trees like it's smaller support vehicles it must be able to clear it's own way. Also quite effective against infantry or even light duty walkers or mechs. Though this tactic is not advised and should be used with caution.
- High caliber, four barrel, rotating cannon. Belt-fed ammunition supplies the veracious appetite of this weapon. Heavy payloads are carried since this is the vehicles main defense against infantry or light assault vehicles. It has a broad range as it can be aimed in nearly any direction. It's main drawback is lack of defense for the gunner.
- Long range surface to surface missile. Carries only a single payload for this weapon. Used once it's in range of major objective. This devastating missile is mounted to the 'brain center' of the vehicle. The armored cockpit is outfitted with a very sophisticated computer system and must be operated by a highly trained soldier.
- High-powered surface to air & surface to surface plasma cannon barrage. Sitting on the other side of the missile is this weapon. Heavy payload is carried for this weapon as it's a main defense against light, medium, and heavy aerial assault vehicles and land-based threats. This weapon has a broad range as it can be aimed in nearly any direction. Great care must be taken by its operator not to inflict friendly fire.
- The power-train for propulsion produces 12,825 ft lbs of torque. The drive-train is sophisticated enough to allow power management to each wheel independently. As wheels slip then power is reduced to them while increased to wheels with better grip. The wide tires allow this heavy vehicle to stay on top of terrain instead of sinking deep into it. Operators have had trouble with tight turns as the wheels are able to touch each other when turning too tightly; apparently the nerds in propulsion software engineering forgot to add in checks and limitations to prevent this.
- HI-TAC LAV - "Ostrich" - Stowed in the rear is a quickly deployable Hi-speed Tactical Light Assault Vehicle. Nick-named "Ostrich" for obvious reasons; this flightless bird packs a hi-speed punch to both surface and air. When not needed it is secured to its fuel station. To deploy the Ostrich the fuel station, with vehicle attached, is slid off the back. The Ostrich is powered up and can be combat ready in 30 seconds. The front operator is in charge of navigation and the high caliber pulse rifle on the front. The rear operator is in charge of the two plasma canon assemblies (4 cannons per assembly) They have a fair range from side to side and can be aimed independently but they lack any adjustments to pitch. The rear and front operators must work together to adjust pitch if they need to shoot at higher elevation.
