The Fenris is a practical and versatile main battle tank. While not ideally suited to highly mobile modern warfare, the Fenris and its variants will dominate the battlefield when good air cover is assured.
1 Combat Tank: The basic Fenris design provides a good balance of mobility, protection and firepower. The wide tracks and rugged suspension offer excellent cross country performance and provide a stable firing platform. Heavy plates of composite armour shield the crew and power plant from small arms and light artillery, and sloped surfaces aid shot deflection. Standard armament is an 88mm cannon which can fire a wide range of shells. Machine guns and grenade launchers are used to counter infantry.
2 Support: Like all Fenris variants, this version uses the same hull, but the larger fixed turret houses a 120mm cannon with an advanced muzzle brake. This fires much higher velocity shells, allowing the tank to hit targets several kilometres away. While these variants are mostly used to provide long ranged fire support, they also excel at static defence, and when dug in or camouflaged can score kills long before they are seen.
3 Assault: This variant is used for close assaults on heavily defended positions. The frontal turret armour is thicker, providing better protection at the cost of reduced mobility. This houses a 180mm howitzer for use against enemy strongpoints and other well-protected targets. Two integral mine projectors and an armoured barbette with a chaingun provide additional defence against infantry at close quarters.
4 Flame: This variant is also used for assault, but is better suited to attacking infantry in trenches, light structures or dense vegetation. The main turret is fitted with a heavy flamethrower which can draw fuel from an armoured trailer or chambers mounted on the tank. Flame tanks are often deployed behind the main battle lines to crush pockets of resistance and burn the farms and villages that feed and shelter partisans. The mere threat of a flame attack is often enough to induce surrender.
5 Missile: Dedicated strike aircraft pose a major threat to tanks, and these variants help counter it. Advanced surveillance and targeting systems allow them to locate and strike targets before visual contact is made. These tanks can also double as self-propelled artillery, using missile barrages to soften enemy defences or provide cover for a retreat.
6 Salvage: These variants tow disabled tanks back to base camps for repairs and strip wrecks of working parts. The rear-mounted winch and cable can pull crippled vehicles out of difficult terrain without risk to the salvage tank, while the main crane can swivel 360 degrees and is used for heavy lifting. Salvage tanks rarely operate outside friendly territory, but most are fitted with machine guns for protection against saboteurs.
