The Dwarven B.E.A.S.T. (Battery Enhancement Auto Steam Tank) is the perfect blending of Dwarven strength and engineering. Designed to quickly engage the enemy with modest but potent cannon fire, the B.E.A.S.T.'s narrow body width can move easily through the narrowest of mountain passages or even semi-dense forests. A single Dwarf acts as both the driver and the gunner, which is a blessing and a curse - it takes a quarter of the man power and half the time as a traditional cannon crew, but a driver must stop the tank, direct all steam power to the cannon, load the artillery, and fire. While the B.E.A.S.T. isn't the answer to all of the Dwarves battery needs, it is certainly a powerful tool that fits quite a few applications.
About this creation

A closer look at the Guudoo X3000 Steam Engine. Originally designed by the Guudoo to power a time machine, the X3000 is the heart and soul of the B.E.A.S.T. While the Guudoo time machine was ill conceived and poorly executed, as evidenced in the untimely deaths of many test subjects, the forward thinking Dwarves saw the potential in the steam powered engine and after much negotiating, acquired the technology and began rapid mass production. The X3000 is found in several dwarven creations including a new dental drill!
