The 21RLB Appila Attack Rover has been a staple of the Jalyrkieon military for a long time. It is essentially an upgraded modification of the earlier 21RUI Wilarit rover, a design itself nearly a hundred years old at the time of its replacement. The Appila, which has been refitted several times (the most modern generation being the 21RLB-6 version, forms the backbone of the Hierarchy army, using mobility and weight of numbers on a cheap, sturdy and easily maintained hull, rivalling the ESU’s T-132.
Technically a light tank, the current Appila is modestly armoured, and fitted with one of two turrets. The first is has twin, multibarrel phased-plasma cannons, which between those of the Tevqolath and the Shyroen on power. This gives it a good punch for dealing with shielded targets and excellent range, though the penetration is not spectacular. The second turret is a series of five linked semi-guided rocket pods with 105 warheads. This gives the Appila a better anti-heavy-armour capability, at the expense of lesser range, combat endurance and anti-infantry ability. Both turrets are high-track and capable of dealing with anti-air craft or urban area operations. The Appila also mounts a graviton crusher for additional point-defence.
