Designer Notes
The Arian, like the Vandal on which it is based, is the proverbial "big gun" unit. Designed to provide heavy tactical artillery support, it is based on the chassis of the Visigoth main battle tank. Both vehicles share the same engine and drive train, allowing for simplified maintenance in the field. The driver is seated forward in the hull while the system operator sits in the rear, just under and forward of the missile launcher. The turret has been removed and replaced a massive smoothbore artillery cannon. The Arian is somewhat vulnerable to up-close attacks, however, carrying only an anti-air autocannon for close range defense and defense against air attack. This is usually not a problem because the Arian operates far form the action. It is usually found parked at the extreme limit of the combat zone, its crew ever attentive to requests from the forward observers. The Arian is currently only found in the ranks of the Southern Republican Army.
