Description: The CNAR tank was intended for support alongside the heavier CRAR tank. While it is intended for anti-infantry, its secondary role is anti-air. Its light armor (only 5 cm) make it fairly susceptible to mines, bombs, RPGs, etc. So it has to clear out the infantry before the infantry can clear it. It also makes for a good anti-air platform; with a firing rate of 600 rpm (per gun), any air targets are sure to think twice about getting in front of it. And as the CRAR tank has no actual anti-infantry weapons, or anti-air weapons, it wouldn't be uncommon for it to be paired with two CNARs.
The only real drawback to the CNAR is its extremely thin armor. The only way for the tank to be so fast with its weapons was for it to have virtually no armor. And as such, is extremely vulnerable to guerrilla tactics. This cannot be stressed enough. A single grenade down the front window, and the tank goes sky-high. Not to mention if someone managed to slip a sticky bomb on the rear hatch. Also, the tracks are largely unprotected, making them a literal magnet for road mines.
It has been joked that the fastest way to a promotion is to join the CNAR corps.
However. Its cheapness allows for an immense number of these to be produced, at a ratio of about 30 CNAR for every CRAR. This means that: send in a wave of these, and one can raze a town to the ground, in hours, at most.
