Clan "Assault Combat Vehicle" Mars tank is one of the premier combat vehicles that the Clans field. It was designed as part of the pro-vehicle initiative from ilKhan Jerome Winson in the 2840s. A massive tank, the Mars is named after the Roman god of war. With over half its mass dedicated to weaponry, the Mars is capable of swiftly dispatching enemy units. Its slow speed necessitates the use of long-range weapons. All variants are equipped with Enhanced Optics & Laser Anti-Missile System. Several include AutoFlamers. It can be a little sluggish in the turns.

Pro Tip:

As with most Tanks, Turret Pitch & the angle of the vehicle relative to level ground plays a major role in your ability for a clean shot of your enemy. Terrain awareness and positioning is a talent that needs to be developed and become second nature, to be proficient in it's operation.


One of the most formidable vehicles ever built, the Mars dedicates more than half of its weight to weapons, ammunition and associated systems under the guise of Series XXXII Multitrack IWS with Artemis IV FCS Targeting and Tracking System. Popular legend attributes the design of the tank to ilKhan Wilson himself, but even if this were the case, little remains in the current version of the original configuration created more than two centuries ago. Carrying more than eleven tons of advanced-composite armor (Compound Zeta Ferro-Fibrous), the Mars can sustain multiple hits with minimal risk of penetration. A general purpose ECM unit degrades the abilities of many of the sophisticated fire-control systems an enemy force is likely to use, further reducing the chances of a successful hit. This armor protection and vast weapons array, however, has the unfortunate result of making the Mars ponderously slow and incapable of withdrawing from a fight.
