Oriflamme Cavalry Vehicle

design by Idiot/Savant

A light grav-tank used for scouting by the Oriflammen Marine Corps. The long-range HRT necessitates the use of a standard computer, with a flight computer as backup. If the main computer is damaged, HRT range is restricted to 30km. The turret mounts a 7cm L75 autocannon of the same type used in the OMC's MBT, a coaxial 15mm RC(E) HMG and laser designator in a fully stabilised mount. A 200-round magazine is mounted with the weapon, sufficient for over three minutes of sustained fire.

The Cavalry Vehicle uses the same hull, electronics and thrusters as the Cavalry Missile Vehicle.

The cavalry vehicle originally appeared in Striker II and was reverse-engineered with Fire Fusion & Steel.
