History

The Avenger Anti-Aircraft Tank is built on the Liberator Medium Tank chassis, replacing the turret with a different collection of weapons. Unlike more conventional tanks the Avenger is not suited to anti-infantry or anti-vehicle use, instead it’s arsenal exists solely to take out aircraft of all types. In all other ways it’s identical to the Liberator. They are often mixed in with other tanks to provide supressive anti-air fire to a group of tanks while on the move.

The Avenger uses four conventional flak cannons with air burst munitions as it’s primary anti-air weapon, backed up by a pair of six-pack missile launchers to deal with fast moving aircraft that avoid the main guns. To make these weapons more accurate, an advanced sensor system with active radar and lidar is built into the turret.
