"Using these things on infantry is barely legal. Hit a Lance of Brutes out in the open. We had to wipe them off the floor afterwards."
―Sergeant Frank Hamilton

The M814 Panther Close Assault Vehicle is a heavily modified M808G Scorpion. The standard turret of a M808G is removed and replaced with the heavily slanted turret with a pair of belt fed rotary 20mm cannons with a combined rate of fire of 12,000 rounds per minute. The cannons has proven deadly against dug in foes, buildings, infantry and light vehicles. Behind the cannon's ammo load is a number of launching bins containing four VENOM missiles for engagement of hostile armour. The entire assembly is heavily armoured, slanted and bundled with sensors and countermeasures.

The vehicle's design and creation was a reaction to the increasing casualties Scorpion tanks faced in urban combat against Brute forces. The Panther was introduced as a purpose designed variant to replace anti-aircraft vehicles pushed into those roles. The vehicle is introduced in a three to one or two to two ratio in urban combat in Scorpion platoons, based on theatre commander requests, with drivers and gunners being dual trained.
