"When your tank gun can overpenetrate the frontal armour of 3 MBTs, you know you got something special."
―Anonymous Marine


The M812E4 Komodo AVP (E for Energy) (Also know as the 'Laser Tank' or crudely as the 'Penetrator') was a modified version of the Monitor, its main gun removed and replaced with a Weapon/Anti-Vehicle Model 8 Grindell/Galileian Nonlinear Rifle

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 fixed gun and mounting a 20mm remote operated turret on the rough, 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 weapon itself is a marvel of modern engineering. It is capable of instantly destroying a MBT at any position in line of light, with no effect on aiming by wind or gravity. It uses a enlargened fusion core directly linked to the engine to power the weapon. The Fusion core itself is rechargable, either by a large scale power supply or by using the engine to power it. The weapon is capable of piercing four meters of Ceramic-Titanium armour, usually found on Scorpion tanks.

UNSC remarks

"We never had to bother waiting for line of sight any more. During trial runs on Acturas we developed the tactic of using Sat Uplinks to aim our guns right through buildings and forests. We nailed target drones up to 4000m away doing that in dense forested and urban areas. The 4 version is modifed to support that fully."

"Those Sierra Foxtrots figured out how to pick up our lasers. They detected the low level 'painting' laser before hand. When they got that they got out of sight, requiring us to work on Sat Uplink, but we got away around that. Our foot boys started aiming at tanks with laser sights of the same frequencies and we started spoofing them with our defence lasers and setting up permimeter defence lasers to do the same. It was a month or so of them hiding before they realised we were messing with them and they gave up that tactic. Our kills per day reached an all time high after that."

"Up until the three we never had the engine mufflers of the M811A2. As a result, we had to switch off our engines and fire. The fusion cores had trouble starting the engine again, resulting in alot of 'deaths' during trials."

"When the Remnant attacked Belsario III their whole plan hinged on a Scarab tank breaching main colony's outer defences. We hit it as it crested the hill some 2000m from the walls and disabled its secondary gun then as it got to 1000m we hit its front right and rear back right leg, blowing the first clean off and crippling the other. It kept crawling towards us and we hit it with another hit that bisected its command room and its power core. After that, the dozen or so supporting Wraiths thought twice about advancing."
