United Colonies of Mankind (UCM) - Rapier AA Tanks
The Rapier utilizes the Sabre-type hull to mount a fearsome UM-28 'Vindicator' Gatling cannon on a similar folding turret armature. This makes the Rapier an excellent anti-air unit, where the rapid traverse of its turret system can track fast moving aircraft with ease, while sending a hail of shells towards its target.
The vast reserves of ammunition required to feed the Vindicator are stored inside the hull and fed to the weapon via a complex internal path. The Rapier utilises a far more modest power generator than the Sabre, freeing space for this purpose, since the UM-28 has minimal power requirements.
The Rapier can also turn the Vindicator on massed infantry formations firing in 'wide burst' mode, causing unbelievable carnage. This is achieved by rapid, tiny movements in the weapon armature, intentionally reducing accuracy but causing widespread devastation downrange.
