Next Generation Walking Tank

The future is finally here. Advancements in our Walking Tank technology have allowed us to create the next generation of Mobile Armored Suits. Now with new advancements in energy production, we can expand our arsenal with the next generation in our forces as well as civilian applications in Construction, Medical Rescue, Riconnocence, and off World Exploration. The Bloodhound is the first of its kind.
