KODA Works has made incredible profit off the sale of the Dictator and it is found in military forces all over the Galaxy. However, the Dictator Superiority CAV that is currently produced is not the original CAV that KODA Works had envisioned.
The Dictator design was planned with a pair of fast Gauss Gatling Cannons, but the original guns had not yet been completed when the engineers needed to test the prototype's targeting system and the chassis. A pair of indirect fire weapons of similar weight was needed and the design team found a suitable substitute in the aerospace research area.
The GKw 12y Gauss Cannons were originally intended for a strike gunship that was still in design and development. The 12y's rate of fire was slower than the original Dictator design specs since they were designed to attack stationary targets and hardened fortifications. The CAV team borrowed the cannons on the condition that they would evaluate the weapon for the strike bomber team as well and report the data. Since the plan was mutually advantageous, the aerospace team agreed and mounted the guns on the Dictator with the ammunition feeds being cobbled together. The "cobbled" CAV was ready for light testing, and the rest is history...
[C.A.V. - S.O.] Combat Assault Vehicle - Strike Operations: is a Mecha Combat Game that takes place in the 23rd century and beyond. With a multitude of factions vying for control of different regions of space, each with their own rationale for the expenditure of resources and personnel to achieve or maintain that control, the life of an Elite C.A.V. Pilot is sought after by many across the galaxy. Of course, none of this would be possible without the jump gates of the IGS or the Interstellar communications of the UICC.
CAV: Strike Operations features a wide variety of high-quality plastic miniatures for all of your 23rd century combat needs. Models in the series are molded in gray plastic, unpainted and may require a minimal amount of assembly. Most models also include an additional base or stand to aid in game play. Cyanoacrylate or Reaper Bones glue is recommended for assembly.
Models supplied unpainted - some assembly required. Scenery, glue and paint not included unless otherwise noted. Contents may vary from those shown.
At Dark Horse Hobbies we strive to ensure that images are a correct representation of the product - though contents may vary from that shown or depicted.
Painted images are provided where possible for you to visualize what the model can look like when completed. Various factors can affect the quality of the finished model - individual results may vary.
While these models are "officially" 10mm Scale, they are compatible with most 1/180 Scale models as well as many other 10mm thru 12mm Scale Models and Miniatures. These models will also work well with most N-Scale model railroad products. (Please Note that the older CAV Classic Miniatures [non-Strike Ops] are "officially" Box or N Scale models.)
