New Equipment
Hyper Velocity Missile Systems (HVMS).
These are weapons systems firing guided missiles at Mach 10 or above that rely on
kinetic energy for their main damage effect. They are immune to Point and Area Defense
fire but not ECM. *All* Chits are effective against vehicles but they have no effect
against infantry. They do not have the special attack of always attacking half armour, only
if the facing is correct does this occur.
They mass and cost the same as GMS's.
Only British and Russain units may field them.
Note
All PDS systems are mass 2.
Montgomery Hovertank: Class 4 vehicle; Fast GEV mobility, HMT power, Armour 5, 1
HKP/4 in turret w/ Superior Fire Control, 2 APSW/L, APFC belt, Superior PDS,
HVMS/H (Superior Guidance), Superior ECM, Stealth 3.
This is the current service hovertank of the British Army. It is broadly equivilent to the
LkPz-IX and AC-12 Hovertanks but is slightly heavier armoured and uses Hyper Velocity
instead of Guided Missiles.
Cavalier Hovertank: Class 4 vehicle; Fast GEV mobility, HMT power, Armour 3, 1
HKP/4 in turret w/ Enhanced Fire Control, 2 APSW/L, APFC belt, Enhanced PDS,
GMS/H (Enhanced Guidance), Enhanced ECM.
An older hovertank being phased out of active service in Britain. It is the main service
hovertank of Wellon and is a popular export item to British Allies and Satellites in Africa,
the Middle and Far East.
Cromwell Hovertank: Class 3 vehicle; Fast GEV mobility, HMT power, Armour 3, 1
HVC/4 in hull w/ Enhanced Fire Control, APSW/L, APFC belt, DFFG/1 in hull, GMS/H
(Enhanced Guidance), Enhanced ECM.
Phased out 25 years ago, the Cromwell is often found in colonial militias inventory. It is
broadly equivilent to the French AC-8.

Churchill Groundtank: Class 6 vehicle; Fast Tracked mobility, HMT power, Armour
12, 1 HKP/7 in turret w/ Superior Fire Control, APSW/L, APFC belt, DFFG/1 in hull,
Superior PDS, HVMS/H (Enhanced Guidance), Superior ECM, Stealth 4.
The current line heavy tank of the British Army. It is smaller than its rivals and mounts a
modern 100mm Mass Driver Cannon and a Skystreak missile system. It has the heaviest
armour of any tank in existance (Actually calculated at 15 but that was just too far).
Rifleman APC: Class 3 vehicle; Fast GEV mobility, HMT power, Armour 2, APSW/L,
APFC belt, DFFG/1 in hull with Enhanced Fire Control, Enhanced PDS, GMS/L
(Enhanced Guidance), Enhanced ECM, 2 Infantry Teams.
An older APC in British service. A variant in common use is the Rifleman(AT) which
replaces the GMS and DFFG (a 200MW Plasma Cannon) with a GMS/H with Superior
Guidance.
Templer APC: Class 4 vehicle; Fast GEV mobility, HMT power, Armour 3, HKP/2 in
hull with Superior Fire Control, APSW/L, APFC belt, DFFG/1 in turret, Superior PDS,
GMS/L (Superior Guidance), Superior ECM, Stealth 2, 2 Infantry Teams.
The current service APC, it also has a missile variant, the Templer(AT). This version
replaces the GMS and HKP with a HVMS/H (Superior Guidance) and HKP/1.
Craufurd ARV: Class 2 vehicle; Fast GEV mobility, HMT power, Armour 3, APSW/L,
APFC belt, DFFG/1 in hull with Superior Fire Control, Superior PDS, HVMS/H
(Superior Guidance), Superior ECM, Stealth 3.
The Craufurd is the standard Armoured Recce Vehicle, a fast light AFV used to scout
ahead of Battlegroups.
Bowman Combat Walker: Class 1 Infantry Walker vehicle; Powered Infantry mobility,
HMT power, Armour 2, 2 APSW/L, DFFG/1 with Superior Fire Control, GMS/L
(Superior Guidance), Superior ECM, Stealth 2 (Signature 0).
The output of Project Walking Tank. The British Army is not overly keen on combat
walker but sees the advantages in certain situations, hence the Bowman is often found in
small numbers among most Battlegroups.
Hawk X-Wing Gunship: Class 2 Aerospace vehicle; Aerospace mobility, HMT power,
Armour 2, DFFG/1 in hull with Superior Fire Control, APSW/L, 2 HVMS/H (Superior
Guidance), Superior ECM, Stealth 2.
The standard tank busting helicoptor of the British Army. The missiles may be replaced
with dead fall ordnance on a 1:1 ratio.

Firefly X-Wing Scout: Class 2 Aerospace vehicle; Aerospace mobility, HMT power,
Armour 1, 2 APSW/L, HVMS/H (Superior Guidance), Superior ECM, Stealth 1.
A scout 'copter that operates ahead of the Gunships or large columns of Armour.
Hussar LAV (Tank): Class 2 vehicle; Fast Tracked mobility, HMT power, Armour 2,
APSW/L, HKP/4 in hull with Superior Fire Control, Superior PDS, Superior ECM,
Stealth 1.
Actually a family of vehicles, the Hussar (Infantry) variant replaces the HKP with 2
infantry teams and the Hussar (AT) variant with 2 HVMS/H with Superior Guidance.
The closely related Dragoon series contains the same 3 variants but Fast GEV mobility.
Mercer SPA: Class 4 vehicle; Fast Hover mobility, HMT power, Armour 1, APSW/L,
Heavy Tube Artillery, Superior PDS, Superior ECM.
A self propelled gauss howitzer.
Congreve MLRS: Class 4 vehicle; Fast Hover mobility, HMT power, Armour 1,
APSW/L, Heavy MLRS Artillery, Superior PDS, Superior ECM.
A self propelled MLRS system.
Lancet ADV: Class 2 vehicle; Fast Hover mobility, HMT power, Armour 1, APSW/L,
Superior ADS, Superior ECM.
A self propelled anti aircraft system organic into all formations.
