History

The Sphinx Light Tank was designed at the end of the interstellar era (though not built until the modern era) to meet a role of a light agile tank like the Kiba Light Tank had been. Even though the Kiba had been replaced by the Drifter IFV, the role of a light tank had been established. The Sphinx fixes some of the issues of the Kiba rivaling the Drifter in speed and agility while having heavier armor and equal firepower. More recently, it is being phased out in favor of the Pouncer Hover Tank at most facilities. Though the Sphinx does have slightly better sensors, it’s speed is noticeably slower. Certain environments such as desert worlds slightly favor Sphinx however.

The Sphinx is armed with a single multi-purpose railgun. For defense it has a Stealth Hull to absorb radar and lidar emissions as well as having the first tank ECM module.
