Technical and Historical Notes

The E-Tank was the first unit to emerge from the plan to develop an in-house upgrade to the R-Matey. Part tired of relying on the recovered data, part to show how much they gained, the project was meant to make mission packs and support machines for the R-Matey. This unit was designed to patch up the other support role left by the Nanofighter.

As a support unit, the E-Tank is lightly armed, but the weapon complement is still comparible to a normal battle tank. For it's main gun, the E-Tank uses the typical Canadia electromagnetic rail cannon. Ammo for the rail cannon is so plentiful that it might as well be free, leaving only a drain on the reactor to power the magnetic coils. As a backup weapon, the E-Tank has a heavy gatling cannon which proves effective against armour and infantry alike. Finally, an anti-missile vulcan was mounted for protection.

Being a tank, even a support one, the E-Tank is still heavly armoured to withstand blows. In addition, the E-Tank also has an anti-energy field generator installed, using technology from the Matey Defender. The support aspect of the E-Tank comes from the hybrid energy generator. This generator is comprised of a number of miniturized power generators, chain-linked to provide an extremely large amount of energy. Part of this energy is syphoned off to recharge the E-Tank's batteries, but most of it is discharged at allies to fill up their energy reserves. On top of this, the E-Tank was designed as another unit that the R-Matey could combine with, expanding it's capabilities further. Overall, the E-Tank appeared to be a great success, and an excellent starting point for further Canadia advances for the R-Matey.
