BW-6 Battle Tank

Mean, virtually indestructible, and reliant on old-school technology, this tank is good for short-range combat (it lacks a computer and targeting equipment needed for long-range engagements) or for getting around downtown Funky City safely.


In the Uesureyan Star Empire it replaced the smaller BW-5 Tank.

The BW-6 was used extensively by the Star Army of Yamatai during the Chaos Hive War.

In the Star Army of Yamatai, the BW-6 was replaced by the Type 31 "Troll" Tank in YE 31.
