Basic Description

The Ash'Wa class Hover Tank is the main weapon in the Gohorn Ground Force (the Remteklar) inventory. Hover Tanks and other machine weapons have always been very important to the Gohorns on the battlefield, and thus they spend a great deal of time and effort perfecting their hover tanks to be truly formidable weapons on the battlefield.

The Ash'Wa is the upgraded version of its predecessor the Fen'To, with upgraded weapons systems and hover technology to allow the tank to travel faster over land. New systems were added to provide better air filters for the desert climate, and the tank itself was made slightly bigger. Ash'Wa crews are amongst the most respected of the Remteklar's ground forces.

The Ash'Wa class hover tank is a heavily armoured piece of battlefield technology, so well armoured that most standard laser rifles are ineffective against it. Its aft swivel mounted laser cannon means that it has protection along the flank and aft sides. The top-mounted swivel missile cannons are capable of launching two surface-to-surface missiles at enemy positions. These missiles have a blast radius of only 30 meters, however are effective against other tanks and enemy positions.
