Gerrida Assault Hovertank

Overview
   The Gerrida Assault Hovertank is named after a group of Terran insects that have the ability to walk on water. It is designed to function as a skirmisher, to seek out weak points in an enemy formation and then as a group ruthlessly overwhelm the discovered weak points.
   The design of the Gerrida was highly influenced by efforts for optimal compatibility with vehicular jumpjets. This can been easily seen in its appearance, with its radial symmetry, spheroid central body and impact absorbing actuators. These actuating legs also allow the hover pads to be moved for optimal terrain tracking and to fold them up for transport. These features solved most of the piloting issues that stem from using vehicular jumpjets and also make the vehicle far more easy to pilot in difficult terrain. The hover pads and the center body are build to function as a flotation hulls, allowing the Gerrida to continue fighting on water, even when the propulsion systems have been disabled. 

Capabilities
   In the production OmniVehicle the designers went to extreme lengths to maximize the payload, such as using an XXL engine, Vehicular Endosteel and the recently introduced Clan Heavy Ferro armor. These technologies make each Gerrida very expensive, even though the Society has perfected the manufacturing techniques for those technologies. As such this design is reserved for elite vehicle crews. 
   The Primary configuration was derived from the first prototypes and is armed with four LRM-15 launchers and a Large Pulse Laser. These weapons are aided by a Nova CEWS and a Remote Sensor Dispenser for greater coordination. The amount of LRM ammunition was increased to give it more tactical options.
   Alternate-A is centered around a HAG-40 with a coaxial ERLL, it is designed for extreme range fire support. Two of Gerrida Assault Hovertanks usually form a Nova group with a dedicated Nova CEWS spotter. It has also seen use as a mobile Anti-Air platform.
   The artillery configuration is Alternate-B, it uses two Arrow IV launchers and a TAG in the turret. The launchers are mounted to the sides of the turret, giving it an easily recognizable profile. This configuration quickly replaced the role of the Naga Omnimech and other pre-rebellion artillery platforms in Society forces.
   The configuration with iATMs is the Alternate-C. It is a jack of all trades, capable of harassing at extreme range or dealing horrific damage at short range. For point defense against missiles and infantry, it is augmented with a Laser AMS and three Micro Pulse Lasers.
   Alternate-D was derived from the second prototype and uses seven vehicular jumpjets, one under the central body and one in each hover pad. It was the first of several configurations that use the modular Nova Stealth Suite equipment, which wasn't available when the Gerrida was put into production. Compared to the second prototype batch it has a completely different set of weapons, with it being armed with a dozen Chemical Medium Lasers as they deemed to be better general purpose weapons.
   Alternate-E functions as a BA transport and SRM carrier. It is equipped with an equal number of SRM launchers to that of a regular SRM carrier. But because of the Gerrida's far greater speed, armor and a Nova Stealth Suite on this configuration, it is highly capable in getting striking distance of its chosen target. In such a strike it can unleash a devastating salvo of SRM missiles and deploy Battle Armor.
   The Gerrida Alt-F has two Rotary AC/5s as primary weapons. Similar to the Alt-B, it mounts these main weapons to the side of the turret in balanced mounts. It is also equipped with a Nova CEWS with Nova Stealth Suite, allowing it to rush to a target and finish a crippled target with a dozen Machine Guns.
   The non-omni prototypes did not use any technology that is unique to the Society, with regular vehicle structure and FF armor. The first prototype batch was equipped with a Large Pulse Laser and large number of LRM-5 launchers. The second prototype batch was equipped with vehicular jumpjets and replaced the missile launchers from the first batch with Machine Guns. After through evaluations it was decided that the there wasn't yet a suitable set of equipment to mount alongside with the jump jets and thus further development was based upon the first prototypes.

Deployment
   The Gerrida Assault Hovertanks have been manufactured in not large but decent quantities and most important Society facilities with suitable terrain or mobile forces have at least a Sept of them ready for deployment. Being part of a Gerrida crew is seen as a status symbol, as such there is high amount of competition in the Society among interested vehicle crews for any open sports.


Notable Unit "Stray Saucer"
   The Gerrida Assault Hovertanks with Vehicluar JumpJets are capable of performing high-altitude combat drops, however this feature had to be throughly tested. In an early test a nearly unpopulated planet was selected and an Un of early production models were prepared for the test. The test was highly successful, with the minor exception of one vehicle, that got into a slight spin which lead them to miss their target area. The crew managed to land without any issues and after assessing their situation they made a jump to a nearby river and proceeded to their DropShip.
Local agents later found out from the tabloid 'Suns Enquirer' that the stray vehicle was seen by a local subsistence farmer. The farmer was out at night and mistook the landing vehicle for a mythical Alien Saucer from his family legends. This was understandable as the hover pads had been positioned for optimal velocity reduction, the search lights on and the vehicle had a slight horizontal spin. The superstitious farmer ran to a bunker and stayed there for several days until he was sure that the aliens had left.

Ya know...

If you combined B on the C platform and dropped the TAG... gives you 6 tons of ammo for twin A4s.

And made the Nova CEWS as fixed... as well as making a " wild weasel " variant using every known electronic device out there.

I'd be pretty impressed with the Society more so now, than ever.

What about this, as a Wild Weasel?
It doesn't carry its own recon drones, but it can defend itself.

If you use "code" tags (the "#" button above) around those stat blocks, they'll straighten out your columns...

That thing looks so stupid, I like the hell out of it.
On behalf of the Berserker,
Sure it isn't the most practical 'mech ever designed, but it's a hundred ton axe-murderer. If loving that is wrong I don't wanna be right.

Ditto: the thing is so silly and crazy and yet I love it. I'd want to see a 'downgraded' one with Clan ER Lasers weapons or a Gauss variant. Even crazier a large/medium pulse sub-variant of the jumper

Krang called, and he wants his Technodrome back.

Uh...just thinking out loud here...

This things weighs a 100 tons and can cross 11 hexes flat out. Do I want to know the result of this floating bowling ball revving up and ramming some poor mech bastard in the knees?

Erm, Krang and the Technodrome were from the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon show...

They were referring the fact that both me and Plog really liked the anime Heavy Object, and this is our tribute, even some of the loadouts were based upon specific Objects.
