DescriptionEdit

With only a brief run in combat use, the original Badger design was ambitious, but a failure. Its gun mount delivered a powerful punch that could pierce even the thicket armour with a short spray of bullets, but its insufficient ground attachments often caused it to topple before it would do any real damage. This embarrassing oversight was later remedied with the STAB hooks of the more modern Badger and Longbow.The M173 Badger - also referred to as the T7 - is a vital defensive unit, best suited for use along the perimeter of a friendly base. Once there, it immobilises and deploys its STAB hooks (Stabilised Terrain Adapting Base). The low-weight turret must be locked into the terrain before firing to avoid kickback and maintain accuracy. The Badger can be repositioned when needed, but it cannot fire when its STAB unit is not deployed. Because of the turret’s slow turn rate, the Badger is most effective within a ridge or canyon pass where an oncoming vehicle cannot manoeuvre around it or leave its 120m effective radius. If used in this capacity, the Badger can handle multiple attackers.

With only a brief run in combat use, the original Truman-era Badger design was ambitious, but a failure. Its gun mount delivered a powerful punch that could pierce even the thicket armour with a short spray of bullets, but its insufficient ground attachments often caused it to topple before it would do any real damage. This embarrassing oversight was later remedied with the STAB Hooks of the more modern Badger and Longbow.

Black Dog BadgerEdit

Now aging considerably, but still a mainstay on the battlefield, Black Dog turrets are generally held together by countless emergency repairs, but are sturdy and reliable, nonetheless. Standard armament is a single minigun.
