Submission Name: C1M2A MAT-TE [Armored Attack Walker]
Link to Submission: http://starwarsrp.ne...-attack-walker/
Reason for Modification: Addition of equipment/details
Material: Durasteel, Chanlon, Dura-Armor, Kinetic Armor
Advanced sensor packages allow for the MAT-TE's weapons to be operated independently; spotters not needed for operation of weapons. All weapons are CROW (Crew Remote-Operated Weapon) equipped and operated from inside of vehicle.
Targets can be spotted through Infrared, Thermal, and Magnetic Signature fields from ranges up to 100 kilometers in normal operating and environmental conditions. Range extends with gains in elevation.
Advanced equipment requires displacement of systems within the troop bay of vehicle, taking up the space a stock AT-TE would fit 4 soldiers into.
Spotting holocams are installed in a variety of locations around the vehicle. One holocam is installed per troop gun port, two under the rear skirt armor, two on either side between the two front legs, and two facing forward and rear along the bottommost edge of the turret structure.
Ground-penetrating sensor systems mounted beneath the chin of the vehicle as well as the rearmost chassis are capable of detecting buried threats in front of and behind the vehicle. These systems, which relay their data to the vehicle commander's station and the pilot's display simultaneously, can detect most standard homemade and military mines and explosive charges 15 meters ahead of and behind the vehicle.
Primary Weapon: MD2 Turret System
The MD2 Turret System is a dorsal mounted, rail-system operated Mass-Driver Cannon, manipulated by a single gunner from within vehicle. Equipped with battlefield sensor packages similar to that of the A9 Floating Fortress; allows gunner to operate without spotter. Advancements in technology allow for more accurate firing at ranges up to 7 kilometers.
Manual turret controls allow the MD2 Turret System to remain operational in the event of power loss to the turret.
Please add this image to the post, somewhere it fits best:
Lastly, I would like to challenge the 7 km maximum effective range limitation that was placed on this submission. The recently approved Myrkava, http://starwarsrp.ne...in-battle-tank/ (OMG Love the name) was allowed a 12 km maximum effective range for its main cannon, which is of a design I'm not even familiar with but seems to use a chemically-based propulsion system. Thus, the rail-gun design carried by my C1M2A still ought outstrip this system for muzzle velocity and maximum effective range. I originally pushed for a 15 km / 9.3 mile range on this main battle tank, and would like to push for that range once more.
It only makes sense considering the weapons and targeting technology and the mathematical comparisons I made to real world weaponry in the original post, as well as the comparison to smaller vehicles such as the Myrkava.
If required, I will complete development threads for this submission in order to attain such ranges, as the Myrkava was able to attain via development threads of its own for its beskar usage.
