Dropzone Commander: Neuheiten im Januar
Hawk Wargames haben die Neuheiten für diesen Monat vorgestellt.
The Tarantula is a smaller, more agile version of the towering Warstriders. Its primary armament is the highly advanced Gravatic Magnifier (also known simply as the Grav-Cannon). This weapon delivers crushing fore to anything with mass – the larger and heavier the target, the more devastating its effect! By its very nature, it is also effective against skimmers.
It is also armed with a nose mounted micro-laser, a small but deadly accurate weapon well suited to destroying lightly armoured targets from great distances.
Battle Striders also feature anti-grav assistors and clamps on their legs and feet, allowing them to climb sheer surfaces to attack from above!
These factors, coupled with increased survivability over most Shaltari grav-tanks makes the Tarantula highly popular with certain less subtle Warchiefs who would prefer to crush their opponents than out-manouver them!
2 Tarantulas kosten 11,50 Pfund.
The Angelos is a multi-role fast strike vehicle. Although somewhat similar in performance to the anti-grav craft employed by alien races, The Angelos is not a true skimmer. Instead, it relies on miniaturised thrusters to keep it aloft and thus has a shorter flight time, making it less suitable for extended operations than its more advanced cousins.
It is armed with a single RXs-120 smoothbore heavy cannon (the same weapon employed by the Enyo). Coupled with the Angelos‘ speed and advanced targeting systems, this can be used to deadly effect in both the anti-structure and anti-armour roles.
The Angelos also features a limited transport capacity, allowing it to drop small strike teams of infantry if required. This makes the Angelos a highly effective skirmishing unit which often operates ahead of the main PHR force. However, it lacks the heavy armour and survivability of most Battle Walkers and as such it is best employed on the flanks and around cover.
2 Angelos Skimmer kosten 10,50 Pfund.
The Katana is built upon a lighter, nimbler version of the more common Sabre-type chassis. In a further effort to save weight, UCM military engineers have also adopted a less power-hungry weapon system; a twin high-velocity cannon, the UM-88T. This armament has a superior rate of fire to the more common railgun, although it does not have quite the same punch or range.
Katanas are typically deployed as flanking units and in theatres where extended time in the field are required. As such, they are becoming an increasingly common sight in UCM advance strike forces and even as armoured support for mobile scout groups. Due to its somewhat lower tech configuration than the Sabre it can also be manufactured in smaller, less advanced facilities than the vast armour works on Ferrum.
3 Katanas kosten 11,00 Pfund.
