Background

A Squalo, but lighter and faster and a bit cheaper.

Squalos have extremely high logistical requirements with their thick armor and heavy equipment. The MK-II is notably less costly to manufacture and deploy, and allows further reach of the armored forces.

The Squalo-MKII has superior sensors and a smaller target profile, and is far more modular to produce. This has upsides - off-the-shelf components are cheaper than entirely unique ones - but also downsides; some elements are inferior to the original Squalo. Still, the logistical changes alone make the MK-II invaluable in the eyes of PanOceania's top brass.

PanOceania's remote pilots also like it. It's small and fast and it still shoots great.


Squalo model TAGs are the remote-presence armored battle units that, for decades, have made up the Heavy Lancers Regiment of the PanOceanian Armored Cavalry. Designed to become the core armored unit of this mechanized corps, they were the most prevalent element in the PanOceanian armored arsenal: robust, efficient, and easily enhanced and upgraded. However after so many years of service the ever-changing settings of war in the Human Sphere made it wise to take a step beyond a mere upgrade of those still in service, and to rethink the whole base concept of the Squalos.

The Mk-II Squalo is the embodiment of a powerful new family of systems that bring the PanOceanian Military Complex into a new era of operational flexibility and responsiveness thanks to their advanced integration of data, sensors, and weapons. Its design is based on an open architecture, supported by a digital ecosystem that extends its lifecycle, allowing it to evolve rapidly by means of tech updates that will provide it with the new capabilities it needs to overcome any future threats that may present themselves on the battlefields of tomorrow.
