M90/80 Universal Combat Vehicle . The Western Confederation realized it had to upgrade its assault capabilities, so the M90 MBT 'Yankee' program was initiated. In addition to main battle tanks, the M80 'Air Cleaner' was conceived as an attempt to fill the gap in its static and mobile defenses. .
The 'Yankee' is a purpose-built land raider. Capable of overwhelming any vehicle type yet conceived.
Armament: 1x 135mm 3-round burst smooth-bore
2x 0.50 cal machine guns
1x 4 barrel 40mm automatic 'Metal Storm' grenade launcher
Twin 30mm cannon firing 800 rpm each. 1,600 rpm total.
Its 40mm grenade launcher can fire over 4,000 rounds per minute, carrying 25 of these projectiles per barrel. Three firing modes are available; single round, 1 round from each barrel, and 'field of fire' where slight articulation allows the unit to lay out all 100 grenades in a set pattern to tear ambushes or groups of enemies to shreds.
Deeply sloped armor gives it a huge deflection advantage, especially in the front where it nearly comes to a point.
With 'Iron Fist' units, it can block incoming projectiles without even breaking stride, making it nearly invincible, and even protect vehicles in its immediate vicinity. But with its comprehensive armor, it can be just as fearsome without the IF.
Equipped with a bevvy of sensors including thermal, infrared, and of course radar, the 'Air Cleaner' can fire with amazing accuracy.
With 0 degree elevation, the AC can be used to clear out entire fields of infantry and soft-skinned vehicles in moments with its 2,400 rounds. These rounds are carried in the 'jowls' of the turret in tightly rolled bundles.
Well, this is the most recent of my attempts at modern armor since the M89 , what do you think?
