Time to go back to Sci-fi. For a little bit.
In the year 2032 combat on the traditional battlefield is almost all but gone. Battles have become hit and run tactics on tight streets and mountain terrain. Tradition tanks and APC’s are vulnerable with limited maneuvering capabilities on tight streets and canyons. Attack helicopters are also sitting ducks with all the tall buildings and cliffs. Many times the initial attach would be only to bring in the air support which was the intended target.
The dilemma was answered in the year 2045 with the first Urban Combat chassis. The UCC’s ability to walk over road blocks and up overpasses as well as duck behind obsticals and move like a man made it the ultimate vehicle to combat this threat. Although still limited to hardened roads and hard rocky terrain, in limited testing with a newly designed foot, it was found to be unstoppable through forest terrain sense it does not need a clear path. Its ability to walk around trees and step over trenches and up waterfall made its assets apparent. More testing and rigging is required.
The basic design called for a standard walking chassis and the ability to change out the turret for deferent missions. Show here as a tank and bunker buster, it has several deferent variants. The common chassis and power plant was done for faster and more efficient repairs and re supply. The first units rolled off the assembly line in January, 2050.
