Introduced shortly before the end of the thirty-first century by Majesty Metals and Manufacturing and manufactured in their plant on Dunianshire, the Sheriff Infantry Support Tank is a common sight within the various allies of the Capellan Confederation.[1]

Relatively unambitious in design, the Sheriff proved to have uses beyond simply acting as mobile cover for infantry; crews would often carry multiple different types of ammunition for the turret-mounted light autocannons, allowing the Sheriff to tailor its performance to the demands of the mission or battle.[1]

Powered by a Magna 95 fuel cell engine, the Sheriff was relatively fast given its original design parameters, and ten tons of heavy ferro-fibrous armor helped protect the Sheriff in battle.[1]

Weapons and EquipmentEdit

The Sheriff mounted a pair of Pontiac Ultralight Light Class 5 Autocannons in a single turret, supplied with no less than four tons of ammunition. To protect it from infantry, each Sheriff mounted four Niu Tou B-Pods, one mounted to each of the front, rear, left and right arcs.[1]


As of 3145 there were no variants of the Sheriff in service.[1]
