The Musketeer Hover Tank is a combat vehicle designed to deliver concentrated firepower quickly and cheaply. The hovertank is as difficult to kill as a hover vehicle can be, with seven tons of Ferro-Fibrous armor protecting it, and CASE protecting its four-person crew from internal explosions. An internal combustion engine is inexpensive and can still maintain speeds up to 119 km/h.[1]

Weapons and EquipmentEdit

The Musketeer was created to deliver a Mydron Tornado Rotary Autocannon/5 to the field. Three tons of ammunition give the Musketeer's crew the ability to maintain sustained fire. The autocannon is backed up by a pair of Holly Mark II Streak SRM-2 launchers. The result of this is a scattershot effect that can quickly damage the motive systems of enemy tanks and damage critical systems.[1]


  • Armor 
    This variant developed in 3068[5] replaces the autocannon with a smaller Rotary Autocannon/2. The loss of firepower nonetheless enabled engineers to add additional armor, making the Musketeer even more difficult to bring down[1]. BV (1.0) = 553[3], BV (2.0) = 897[6][5]
  • 3080 Upgrade 
    This version introduced in 3080[7] uses a Fusion Engine to provide power. This increases the Musketeer's top speed to 120km/h. The Streak launchers have been removed and a four ton infantry compartment has been added, as has some armor. BV (2.0) = 1,114[8][7]


In German products the unit's proper name was perfectly translated to Musketier.
