|“|| Armored cav reporting in!|
"This right here is another new entry in our arsenal: The M8 Acolyte is an airdroppable light tank which weighs in at a mere 22 tons thanks to its lightweight aluminum/titanium build which can be reinforced in the field with bolt-on composite armour packs. Multiple of these can be dropped out of a single C17 Globemaster to provide armoured fire support to forward elements on short notice. While the most recent A2 version of the M5 Crusader II has been up-gunned with a 105mm smoothbore cannon now that we are once again preparing to fight hostile state actors, the Acolyte retains the lighter 90mm weapon to reduce its drop weight and compensates with a greater supply of shells."
