As the second Khanate War continued and worlds fell to the Legions as they spread ever further from the Matter Gateway in the Camarthen stellar system the threat to the entire Prydian Precinct grew dire. The Marcher Barons were in retreat and the Prydian Army in ascendency after twenty years of civil war but this did not mean that the military might of the Throne was enough. Split between dealing with the growing alien invasion and the struggle for dominance in the core systems this resulted in neither war being tackled fully. In 4340 IC the death of the Kingmaker Nevall in battle against Princess Cyon meant the Precinct was once more at peace with only small scale conflicts left to stamp out. The loss of most of Knight General Obermann's fleet in 4331 IC on and around Camarthen Prime had meant near a decade of hit and run campaigns against the Dragon Ships as they sail in darkness out across the stellar cluster. While Humanity was able to deal with a single Dragon Ship entering a planetary orbit this was not the case as pairs and then trios and more of these mighty warships, each carrying an entire Legion, began to appear together. It would take several years to gather enough might to tackle the Matter Gateway head on so for the moment single regiments were dispatched to hold and harry as best they could. 
The clamour for Taranis and Magogs was constantly coming back to New Glastonbury and in such numbers that the demand could not be met. It takes a lot of time and resources to build the mightiest war machines so a solution was looked for to supply the Camarthen Cluster with armoured vehicles for the use of Muster and Planetary Militia in huge numbers. Part of this was the Mullo Type 36 AFV as well as the existing Adder light vehicles but a new modular assembly was founded in 4336 IC with the creation of the Adder Combat Tankettes. A stop gap measure to combat Khanate Orbs and tanks. These tracked vehicles have a weight of just over seven and a half tons and roughly eighteen feet in length that Adder is not a combat heavy weight like the Taranis. A colour coding system is in use to make Adders easy to assign to Regiments and to allow Planetary Militia who are not be as used to war as a Retained Knight a simple recognition method. The Red Adder Tankette is the standard model mounting a turret with a Moth 88 Rotary Cannon. The Yellow Adder is the fire support variant and has two crew along with a turret with an Anda 60mm Missile Pod. The Black Adder acts as an armoured punch giving the Muster the ability to knock out battlesuits and other smaller tough targets with two crew and a turret mounted Fretan Rail Gun. Less common is the Orange Adder which is infantry support mounting a specialised turret with a Moth 30 automatic 50mm Grenade Launcher. Dedicated Adders include the Green Adder which is a command and control car at the battalion level and the White Adder for medical teams and battlefield triage. The 'Battle Taxi' type Grey Adder is heavily modified and can carry two fire-teams or a squad at a real squeeze. There are also some very specialised Adders too for purposes such as Blue Adder, the Brown Adder and the Purple Adder. 
Academy Auto-Trainer Series 52, New Glastonbury, 4342 IC. 

The Adder Combat Tankette is the third propulsion type of Adder which we have created. You can see all of the Wheeled and Lifter (Hover) Adders on the website HERE. During this event we will have a free download article with game statistics for their more heavily armoured Adders in your games of Patrol Angis so look for this towards the end of September (the story above is taken from this article). The Adder is a work horse and fits in well with any 15mm near future or further ahead science fiction army. We will also have top down scale comparison photos with other vehicles in our 15mm range later in the month. We thank you for your custom and here are the details of the new vehicles and offers.

  1. I have some of the hover and wheeled variants. I like the looks of these, too. Might just have another purchase to make, but maybe not this month. I'm already a bit over budget on WWII DAK stuff...
