SPECIAL FEATURES
  • Mass-Driver Cannon - Mounted heavy mass driver cannon allows the vehicle to inflict heavy damage
  • Manuel loading and Autoloader - The walkers main mass driver cannon can either be manually loaded or loaded using an autoloader
STRENGTHS
  • Mass Driver Cannon - The mounted mass driver cannon acts as the main weapon of the AT-DF, allowing it to act as a main battle tank. The weapon itself is able to inflict heavy damage to a variety of targets, whether they are stationary structures or moving vehicles. It also allows the vehicle to act in a very limited artillery capacity.
  • Heavy Armour - The AT-DF is a heavily armoured vehicle, equipped with heavily reinforced durasteel plating the AT-DF can take quite a beating before going down. When equipped with a loader the vehicles ammunition compartment is able to be opened and closed with a heavily armoured door. If the vehicle was hit while the doors are closed the Ammunition is blown out the back keeping the crew safe
WEAKNESSES
  • Bipedal - While the walkers legs are armoured they remain a constant weakness, if one leg is disabled or destroyed the walker becomes completely immobile. Heavy weaponry capable of piercing heavy armour should be capable in sufficiently damaging either one of the walker's legs
  • Fire Arc - The walker has a very poor fire arc with its mass driver cannon being aimed forward with limited turning left or right. In order to fire at targets outside its fire arc the walker needs to physically turn left or right.
DESCRIPTION
The AT-DF or All Terrain Direct Fire Walker is a heavily armoured walker, recognisable for it's front mounted mass driver cannon. The walker itself was created for the Risen Empire after military tacticians recognised the need for a medium sized heavily armed walker, small enough to traverse through urban environments and armed enough to rip through any enemy armour or fortified positions. The walker is primarily armed with a heavy mass driver cannon able to rip through most conventional vehicles. The cannon itself has a unique aspect to it, namely the fact it can be manually loaded or loaded via an autoloader. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages, namely the autoloader is faster but is forced to keep the ammunition hatch open, dooming the crew if the ammunition cache takes a direct hit. Apart from the main cannon the walker also sports a rotating turret at it's top, equipped with a heavy laser cannon and a mounted DLT-29 Heavy blaster rifle. To match its armament the working itself is heavily armoured, able to take quite a blow.
