Slayer Mk1 Medium Tank

Slayer Medium Tank

 In 2255 the White Motor Co. AFV Division located in New London in the Imperium made an inspired decision to hire straight out of Oxford University, 15 year old Albert J. Penrose to head up its robotics and AFV design section.  Despite the fact that young Penrose had completed all the robotics and mechanical design classes offered by both Oxford and the Imperial University, he was still relatively unknown, and there was much second guessing among the upper management of the White Motor Co.   Ok, so he was a genius, but a 15 year old kid?   What could they expect from one so wet behind the ears, so to speak?  Upper management wanted a design for a medium tank that could compete both in quality and price against the new Devil Cat by Throp-Merro. 

Young Penrose hit the AFV Division like a hurricane hitting a confetti factory.   Dust and time encrusted managers were flying out the doors and windows in every direction   In one week Penrose submitted a detailed proposal not only for a medium tank he called the Slayer, but for a family of Armored Fighting Vehicles including an Assault Gun (Slasher) and an Armored Personnel Carrier (Shield) utilizing most of the same automotive components and armor. 

Both major competitors for the planned new AFV Family, the M-50 Meat Grinder and the newer Devil Cat both suffered from being designed to an outdated standard, both as to their physical size, weight and antiquated automotive components.   The new Slayer tank was to be a third larger and heavier, with a bigger gun and heavier armor.   So when the Slayer and its brothers the Slasher Assault Gun and the Shield APC were unveiled in early 2257 the armaments industries of the Federation went nuts.

The Slayer Medium Tank has K(175) Armor, Hit points 750.   Its main armament is a Medium Power Gun with 150 round magazine.   Its co-axle gun is a either a HCMC or a LMG Power Gun.   Although provision is made for two crew men, the vehicle can operate with one crewman or none.   It has a built in robot brain and can operate independently.   The Slayer was designed to operate with robot infantry support and has two charging stations in the rear of the vehicle which can recharge batteries for two robots per turn.

Note: The Slayer Medium Tank was designed foremost with price in mind.   Other selling points are the ease of maintenance and the commonality of automotive components with the similar Slasher Assault Gun and the Shield Armored Personnel carrier.  By utilizing a medium power gun as main armament and automotive components designed to last longer under combat conditions the Slayer can operate unsupported on the battlefield longer

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
