The Shillelagh Missile Tank is an early thirty-second century Combat Vehicle which was first produced for Draconis Combine. Originally designed and prototyped during the 2nd Succession War, the vehicle suffered from instability and other technical problems that proved to be insurmountable at the time. Shortly after the Second Combine-Dominion War, the DCMS was need of an inexpensive replacement vehicle for its militia forces. For this reason, engineers at Buda Imperial Vehicles revived the Shillelagh. Redesigned with inexpensive thirty-second century technology, the tank entered production as part of the Combine's efforts to rebuild its frontline forces by swapping more effective combat vehicle designs taken from the militias and replacing them with vehicles like the Shillelagh. Despite it being redesigned, the vehicle still is haunted by lingering design flaws.
Weapons and Equipment
The heart of the Shillelagh is a 200-rated Nissan Fuel Cell Engine, giving it an inexpensive but reasonable power and top flank speed. The 40 ton vehicle is protected by 8 tons of StarSlab/2 standard armor with slightly focused more in its turret and front.
Its main offensive batteries consists of three Shigunga 5-Tube Multi-Missile Launchers which are mounted in the turret. These launchers draw from 4 1-ton ammo bins found in center of the vehicle along side with vehicle. The Shillelagh's only other weapons are a pair of Sperry Browning Light Machine Guns which are mounted in the tank's front.
