the Brawler

The Brawler is a large, self-propelled gun and missile launcher. It's a tall tracked vehicle that features a 77mm howitzer as its main cannon, along with a bevy of other projectile weaponry - not to mention experimental ablative armor. The Brawler has these capabilities:

Ablative Armor: the Brawler makes use of ablative armor, shaped explosives that detonate outward from the Brawler proper. They explode before incoming warheads to minimize their effects. Each side of the Brawler benefits from a one-shot use of 6 RS Damage Reduction.

Body Armor: on top of its ablative armor technology, the Brawler utilizes plain old armor as well. It has a 'blast proof' armor casing that is up to 20 inches thick around the occupants' area, providing the Durability and Protection traits listed above.

Communications Array: the Brawler is equipped with a gigahertz frequency, frequency wobbler clandestine operations radio system. This makes for rank value 10 comm power (with a 25 mile range), which also features rank value 30 signal encryption.

Electro-fire Machine Guns: the Brawler's front corners are equipped with two twinned machine gun mounts. Individually, they can fire short bursts to inflict rank value 20 Piercing damage, or be fired continuously to inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage.

If both mounts are utilized, bolster this damage by +1 RS, whichever firing mode is attempted.

Grenade Launchers: the Brawler has four separate grenade launchers. These triple-rack 'super strike' tactical effect grenades inflict rank value 30 Slashing (fragmentary) damage, adding +1 RS for each doubling of projectiles used, doing so within up to four sectors.

Mega Concussion Cannon: this artillery piece is the main weapon on the Brawler. It is a 77mm howitzer that can fire shells capable of inflicting rank value 50 Piercing damage per blast, enough to penetrate even the most hardened of complexes or vehicles.

Night Attack Machine Gun: the UIO-101 machine gun is mounted atop the mega concussion cannon, and is a computer-controlled weapon. It can fire short bursts to inflict rank value 20 Piercing damage, or be fired continuously to inflict rank value 30 Piercing damage.

Night Vision: the Brawler is equipped with a series of micro-radar emitters and visible imaging systems, which provide it the ability to fight even in complete darkness - unless something is acting to jam radio frequencies in its vicinity, that is.

Surface-to-Air Missiles: the Brawler is equipped with two large SAM launchers. These rather large projectiles can strike anything within line-of-sight of the Brawler - and often beyond if it tries to flee. They inflict +1 RS damage if both strike a single target:
