The G-41 Thinktank is an older German strider design, most often seen as a command vehicle for mechanized units, thanks to its comparatively heavy armor and electronics suites, as well as a heavy urban combat (and riot suppression) unit. The Thinktank possesses a rugged six-legged motive system capable of being fully functional even after losing one, or even two legs. Recent upgrades to the Thinktank have added a number of technological improvements, including a Electronic Countermeasures suite, as well as a Model 462 Cyberbrain (AKA PseudoIntelligence) capable of operating nearly all of the G-41's onboard systems, including movement, weapons, and electronics, allowing the pilot to optimize his efforts.
The G-41's primary armament consists of two Rhinemetall 3-barrelled 20mm cannons, slaved for simultaneous operation. Secondary armament is composed of a pair of 16-shot 60mm rocket pods for anti-light armor work, mounted on the either side of the "abdomen" of the strider. Both of these weapon systems ensure rapid kills against hostile light armor, such as Exo-suits, APCs, and some light tanks. Finally, antipersonnel protection is provided by a 12-shot grenade launcher, with a 360-degree arc of fire. Standard load for the APERS grenade launcher is 8rds of fragmentation, and 6rds of either flare, smoke, or teargas canisters. The design of the APERS system allows for independent firing of any of the loaded grenades.
A G-41 was reported delivered to Poseidon's Public Security Section One on 12.24.2029, and was reported destroyed 2.5.2030 during an operation whose details remain undisclosed. [Ever hear of the Anaconda Assassination Op? --ed]
|The most common variant of the
G-41 replaces the 20mm autocannons for 11mm AMG gatling
machineguns in order to optimize operations against
infantry. Additionally, many of these variants also
utilize a turreted Mk25 automatic grenade launcher (in
addition to the standard APERS system).
