The Scout Spider Tank is a quad legged robotic fighting vehicle created as a joint project between the Hody Protectorate and AQX. The project actually started during the Colony Rebellion, with samples being shipped out to the Hody Protectorate for testing. It became an open project afterwards. In the modern era they are best suited to scout work, rather than direct combat against power armor, tanks, and robotic vehicles. They are still used to guard Hod facilities.
Their primary weapon is a rapid fire conventional cannon in the main turret. A remotely controlled cupola holds a conventional minigun to deal with infantry. To cap off it’s weapons it has four mortar tubes to provide indirect fire ability. In some models these were instead replaced with four short standard missiles giving them anti-tank and anti-air ability.
