We Found it on New Dallas
For those of you who haven’t read the write up on New Dallas, the planet had a boneyard where they stored their outdated equipment that was hidden when the nuke that destroyed the capitol city went off and dropped a building on top of the entrance to the old, pre-terraforming living areas. In the lead up to this, much of the modern, or even semi-modern tech was used up fighting the Combine, the Capellans and the League. What I’m looking for here is Retro-tech. Something that would fit in the early to middle Age of War aesthetic, and for each class, I’m going to give an example of what that could be. I request submissions of what you would expect to find in such a site.

The Jagdpanther II Anti-tank gun was built with the expectation of not necessarily killing its targets, but laming them and thus making them easier for air assets to target. meant to be used from ambush the self propelled class ten autocannon is fixed in place and only fires forward.

You know... if you pulled the MGs and Ammo, that AC/10 becomes an AC/20... ;)

The Maxim heavy tank was designed and built in limited numbers to hopefully counter the Mackie of the Terran Hegemony. At 60-tons the tank is able, at its flank speed, to travel its 400km strike range at 64kph. The turret mounts a heavy rifled cannon with a coaxial machine gun.
