3.8 Assault

The most easily recognized and highly visible part of the CEF's armored forces, nothing compares to the sudden havoc that can be wrought by hovertanks. Using their superior mobility, Assault patrols can easily bypass heavily defended positions or densely packed formations of conventional armor with ease to strike from unexpected directions. The ability to perform such rapid maneuvers allows the CEF to exploit nearly any weakness in an opponent's order of battle swiftly and decisively. Hovertanks are hungry and thirsty beasts however and due to their incredible maintenance demands, not to mention cost, it is rare for Assault patrols to form more than half a battle group's standing force.
