Background

When you spot their icon on the tactical display, you know what that means. It means one of them is coming. Immediately you can feel it closing in. You hear its engine roar as it disengages the mufflers to let everyone know it’s approaching. You feel its thunderous, reverberating steps beating faster, louder. This is how a Ratnik appears on the scene, razing the battlefield with a rain of fire, a Teseum-clad colossus as massive as it is unstoppable. However, what ultimately renders the Ratniks unstoppable, what makes them veritable gods of war, is the fearlessness and determination of the Kazak soldier wearing the armor. It is the warrior tradition that courses through their veins that drives these titans as they emerge roaring at full blast to save the day.




When you spot their icon on the tactical display, you know what that means. It means one of them is coming. Right away you feel it closing in. You hear its engine roar as it disengages the mufflers to let everyone know it’s approaching. And you smile because you know what’s about to happen. Your skin crawls and you feel its thunderous, reverberating steps beating faster, louder. This is how a Ratnik bursts onto the scene: razing the battlefield with a rain of fire, a Teseum-clad colossus as massive as it is unstoppable. Because, thanks to the Teseum, we Kazaks get armor for free. What other powers have to develop by investing in advanced technology, we already have thanks to our reserves of one of the Sphere’s most precious materials.

But piling on armor isn’t enough to create an unstoppable war machine, it also needs to be able to move and fight, and that has been achieved thanks to Казтех (Kaztec), the Kazak arms research corporation. Because no one on Ariadna invests as much in research as Rodina, whether the USAriadnans’ DARPS like it or not. However, what ultimately renders the Ratniks unstoppable, what makes them veritable gods of war, is the fearlessness and determination of the Kazak soldier wearing the armor. It is the Kazak warrior tradition that courses through their veins that drives these titans that emerge roaring at full blast to save the day. And that’s when you feel like lighting up a good old cigar and enjoying the feeling of pride that washes over you for being an Ariadnan Cossack. Colonel Yevgueni Voronin, Cossack Diplomatic Corps.

Master class at the Novocherkassk Military Academy. Rodina. Ariadna. Dawn.
