A new "re-gunned" version of the verenable M-11 MBT. The main difference in this tank is the replacement of the 2cm rail gun with a 76mm "rail launcher". Since it's introduction tests and small engagmements have shown the M-11 to be at a disadvantage in city fighting: the rail gun is pretty useless for anything other than cracking open armor. One solution has been to begin pairing M-11s and M-75s, but this is expensive and not a real solution. So the Army experimented with new gun types, including 120mm ETE, adjustable coil rail guns, and rail launchers. The 76mm rail launcher was the final choice, giving a good comprimise between the compactness and reduced space for ammo of a rail gun, and the multi-purpose flexibility of a larger gun. It fires shells that are similar in size and weight to 75mm rounds, just without the propellant. The rounds are fired like a standard rail gun projectile, except lower velocity rounds (HE, Beehive, WP, etc.) are fired at a much lower velocity. The standard anti armor round is a depleted uranium 20mm penetrator in a 76mm discarding sabot. The penetrator is a bit heavier than a standard 2 cm rail gun projectile, but it's velocity is a bit lower, resulting in equal penetration. The Hellfire racks have also been modified to be modular and can carry 6 spaces of anti-tank missiles, SAMs, rockets, or even drones.
Special Equipment: Composite armor, amphibious modifications, damage control, environment control, 12 hours life support, anti-laser areosol, chaff and flare launchers (x2), 6 IR smoke projectors, AEAMS, military radio with scrambler, laser communicator, satellite uplink, multi-target, microwave and visual rangefinders, auto-pilot (basic) and navigation system (GPS), cyberlinkage, ECM, ECCM, image enhancement, laser detector, microwave detector, military radar, military radar detector, teleoptics, thermograph, BattleTac IVIS (Treat as ACPA C3I computer), and 2 meter long fold down, telescoping sensor extentions on top of hull.
Weapons: Stabilized 76mm Rail launcher (see descripiton above) with a +5 targeting computer and 5 magazines (100 rounds), 7.62mm coaxially mounted machine gun with +2 targeting computer 2,000 rounds, and a laser designator in main turrent, AGAMS and 30mm cannon in small turrets atop main turrent (the 30mm is on a mount that allows manual firing by the commander from either inside the tank or while standing in the hatch.) Missile pod with room for 6 spaces of missiles, rockets, or even drones.
