22-BB Class(TLB)Panther

The 22-BB Class (TLB) Main Battle Tank, commonly known as the Panther , is the most common armored fighting vehicle employed by the S.M.S.A.during the shadow Moon Wars, it is used in operations requiring heavy firepower or an anti-vehicular platform.

The Panther has a range of 750 kilometers and utilizes a four-track design, each mounted on an independent, computer-controlled suspension system, which allow for deft maneuvering around large debris and other battlefield obstacles. The tank also features a small crew size, one operator and one machine gunner, so long as they are equipped with Neural Interfaces; if they are not then an additional gunner is required.
