The centurion main battle tank is the most common tank used by Novan regular forces in the field a rugged and heavily armoured design it has been built to be a reliable and easy to operate vehicle capable of going long periods of time between maintenance cycles making it the perfect machine to equip Tusculum Nova’s armoured divisions.
The designs has seen many weapon fits over the years but the most common armaments (hector configuration) are a regular tank cannon in the turret backed up by a fixed forward hull mounted laser cannon. In addition the hull sides can be configured to mount a sponson weapon most commonly a HMG for close in anti personnel protection.
The Aeneas is the lighter brother of the Hector configuration. Its 120mm cannon is replaced for a lighter variant. Ironically, this weapon was originally designed to be mounted on the Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle as an anti-fortification weapon. This has proven very ineffective, which led the Novan military to rethink their design. The cannon was mounted on a Centurion hull, its decrease in weight gave it more speed than the other configurations. Most Centurions armed with the Aeneas configuration also sacrifice their sponson-mounted tertiary weapons to decrease even more weight, allowing it to travel faster and for longer distances.
Pack contains 3 x centurion tanks (Aeneas) with modelling options.
