Vorenus Imperium


The Light Battle Tank-XVI Mercenary is the Vorenus Imperium's light tank.


The Mercenary LBT has a low-lying rectangular body with a wide, flat topped rectangular turret. The vehicle is mounted on a pair of large tracks that are capable of crossing rough terrain with ease. The main armament of the vehicle consists of a 80mm main gun. The 80mm gun is a surprisingly powerful weapon for it's size, capable of destroying a Necros Eviscerator Light Tank. Mercenary LBTs have even destroyed Compound Tanks if the round strikes the weaker rear or side armor. To deal with larger vehicles such as Necros Eradicator Heavy Tanks and Stalker and Dominator Walkers, the Mercenary also carries to 150mm anti-tank missiles similar to the UNSC Fang ATGW in a twin launcher in the side of the turret. These missiles have, in some cases, disabled the legs of formidable Necros Gravedigger Ultra Heavy Assault Platforms and even destroyed the Gravedigger with multiple shots fired from several Mercenary LBTs overunning a lone Gravedigger. Alternatively, these launchers can be loaded with SAMs similar to the UNSC's Ramhorn to shoot down Necros Carrion,Laceration, and Devastation gunships. To deal with infantry, the Mercenary carries a co-axial .50 caliber heavy machine gun capable of penetrating infantry sheilding and armor, as well as light vehicles. The top of the turret carries a 15mm autocannon for defense against not only infantry and light armor, but also low flying aircraft and Necros infantry equipped with anti-gravity wings such as Quetzalcoatls and Azraels.
