The M811A2 Monitor AVP was a tank built on a new chassis to feature a 90mm Anti Tank gun.
The vehicle its self is longer and wider than the scorpion chassing though marginly lower than it. The main chassis is a boxy chassis in a trapezoid shape, with a front sloped plate, sporting the turret mounted 90mm Gauss gun and mounting a 20mm remote operated turret, providing anti infantry defence and a remote operated .50 cal defence MG on the rear to aid in defence and escape.
These combinations make a excellent tank hunting vehicle. Its low profile, Hydraulic suspension allowing it to raise the tracks to change its elevation, making it perfect for ambush attacks or launching first strikes on tanks in dense enviroment. With the abilities to effective hide behind hills, in ditches, in forests and in towns, its adaptability is fathomless. Its only problem is, while facing targets on their flanks, faster vehicles can out run its turning time or the time it takes to move the gun.
The vehicle uses two primary engines, a diesel cruising engine for low-mid speed cruises and a gas turbine 'dash' engine for escape and advance.
"The A2 model is a ambusher's best friend. When the engine is on standby, its near silent, but then it can spring into action on a moments notice. Means they could pass three meters from you and not know your there."
"The frictionless materials coating the barrel interior are a god send but it still gets damn hot in the tank."
"The Gauss guns are deadly accurate over extreme distances. When you check out its stats on the net, there is no max distance, we haven't figured it out yet."
