History

The Mercury was a US military joint project with NASA when they thought they may be colonizing Mars. Unlike a conventional tank that would have problems operating in the hostile environment of Mars. Among other things it uses a battery power system with electric motors for movement. It also used a electromagnetic railgun to provide it’s firepower.

Several were eventually sent to Mars during the Corporate Wars as ‘security’. However they weren’t used until the UEG invaded during the Colony Rebellion. While considerably out of date and up against overwhelming force, they were some help used sparingly in their efforts to force the UEG out.
