General spotting and shoot-scoot vehicles, featuring the A-14 Rockwell and A-17 Scorpion
About this creation
So here we have two "light" vehicles, the A-14 Rockwell and A-17 Scorpion. Despite having the same weight class their roles are pretty different.

First up is the A-14 Rockwell. With its small size and high speed the Rockwell fills a Recon role, more suited for scouting than out-and-out fighting.





As the Rockwell was meant more to scout than fight, its anti-vehicle capability is mostly made up of the single Slagger anti-tank missile mounted on the turret and a single Chaff launcher on the turret right. Its single Light Battle Cannon is meant more for infantry support and has little chance of penetrating heavy armor.

Requisite "The turret can turn 360 and the gun can elevate" picture.



The two-man crew barely fit within the Rockwell's fighting compartment.



Rockwell buttoned up.



Unlike its scout-oriented cousin, the A-17 Scorpion acts more like a Spearhead light. Having more armor and a more powerful gun, it uses its speed to flank enemy forces and scoot away before it draws counterfire.

Again, 360 turret and elevating gun.



Turret hatches open. Since the Scorpion is expected to fight it carries a dedicated Gunner so the Commander can focus on his job of commanding the tank in battle.



Parts hidden to show the Driver.



Scorpion buttoned up.




Comparison of the Light vehicles with the Evictor MBT and an infantryman. Despite the Scorpion being substantially larger than the Rockwell, both tanks are still much smaller than the MBT.





Comparatively, the Scorpion is only slightly smaller. The Rockwell is just darn puny.
