Description Edit

The T-8 Infantry tank was a development by the Nucleana Royal Armored Corps vehicle development committee after the first great war proved the validity of the tank concept. Conceived as a light breakthrough vehicle for destroying enemy machine gun nests and fortifications on the front lines, the armor is adequate enough to shrug off many large-caliber rifle shots, and some light anti-tank munitions. The trench tail allows it to push across no-man's-land without getting stuck despite the slower speed compared to the Nucleana T-5 Cavalry Tank.

Purpose Edit

The T-8 Infantry, as the name suggests, is designed to provide a mobile and reliable light anti-fortification platform for infantry forces. The 50mm ROQF 4-pounder gun carries good anti-armor capabilities in the form of its Armor-Piercing High Explosive shell, capable of defeating most contemporary tanks. Sharing the chassis of the lighter T-5, the T-8 can drive through wider trenches with ease, laying down machine gun and high-explosive fire all the while.

Characteristics Edit

Advantages Edit

  • Small size and decent off-road handling
  • Powerful 4-pounder gun
  • Decent armor for such a small vehicle

Disadvantages Edit

  • Low top speed
  • Poor turret traverse
  • Vulnerable to concealed anti-tank guns

Variants Edit

All modifications of the T-8 chassis were used to tow the 4-pounder and 15-pounder Avalanche Guns cross-country, the T-8 Artillery Tug being the primary mode of transport due to the prior inclusion of a modest ammunition supply to supplement the guns.

T-6 Turtle - Armored scout, carries a 7.7 Hiram Repeater and 3 gas canister launchers.

T-8 Artillery Tug - Armored towed artillery mover, carries ammunition for the guns.

T-8 Munitions Carrier - Dedicated armored shell carrier, designed to support the M-24 Heavy Siege Mortar.
