The Drone Tank is a high end weapon system deployed by the Atlantic Federation. It has an A-pod based suspension system (full hover, high speed) and an gyroscopic laser. The weapon is mounted in a robot turret, with a full 360 rotation and up to 45 degree elevation in the beam emitter. The tank is controlled via remote link, and does not have autonomous functionality. In combat, the vehicle is fast and accurate with its laser, but has only a moderate amount of armor and moderate staying power in a fight.
The strengths of the unit are it's relatively low cost, high speed, and accuracy. It can also be be outfitted with other gear, depending on the mission needed. This includes anti-air missiles, anti-personnel weaponry, ECM gear, or supplies as needed.
The weaknesses of the unit are it's reliance on remote control and vulnerability to hacking. The main laser has range but lacks stopping power, and at full power output, it only has a few minutes of endurance. The laser and drive system consume a large amount of the power it can contain in it's batteries.
The Armored Personnel Carrier is a tried and true system, a fast moving vehicle that carries soldiers into battle.
The strengths of the APC are that they are cheap, and allow basic infantry to overcome their limited mobility and low speed.
The weaknesses of the APC are that they are typically very poorly armed, often depending on the soldiers inside to literally shoot out of holes in the side, have light armor, and are seen as expendable vehicles.
The Heavy APC attempts to face the armor challenge by increasing the armor of the vehicle, typically to the detriment of it's speed. Heavy APCs are uncommon.
